Obsessive Sexual Behavior, Is it an Addiction?
Is obsessive sexual behavior an addiction? That depends. The fact is that mental health professionals, such as counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists, view obsessive sexual behavior differently, and many mental health professionals do not believe that sex addiction exists. Yet the fact is sex addiction is real, and whether one is wrong or right about that is not important. What is important is that all mental health professionals agree that more and more people are living their lives with unusual and out of control sexual obsessions that are directly creating unmanageable negative consequences. No one disputes this.
Living life with obsessive and out of control sexual behavior will lead to negative consequences that will disrupt or destroy all security to your family, dreams, and hopes. Whether this sexual behavior is called sexual addiction or not is unimportant. What is important is that this behavior can change. Healing can happen. Reuniting families can happen. Hopes and dreams can be realized. Change can happen!
