Sexual Addiction

"What exactly is sex addiction?" It is one of the many questions that local pastoral therapist Theo Kriek faces when confronting this destructive sexual behavior.
Sexual addiction is defined as any sexually-related, compulsive behavior that interferes with normal living and causes severe stress on family, friends, loved ones and one's work environment.
Sexual addiction has been called sexual dependency and sexual compulsivity. By any name, it is a compulsive behavior that completely dominates the addicts life.
Sexual addicts make sex a priority more important than family, friends and work. Sex becomes the organizing principle of an addict's life. They are willing to sacrifice what they cherish most, in order to preserve and continue their unhealthy behavior.
But what defines a sex addict? Here are nine ways to identify them:

  •  Acting out: a pattern of out-of-control sexual behavior.
  • Experiencing severe consequences due to sexual behavior, and an inability to stop, despite adverse consequences.
  • Persistent pursuit of self-destructive behavior.
  • Ongoing desire or effort to limit sexual behavior.
  • Sexual obsession and fantasy as a primary coping strategy.
  •  Regularly increasing the amount of sexual experience, because the current level of activity is no longer sufficiently satisfying.
  • Severe mood changes related to sexual activity.
  •  Inordinate amounts of time spent obtaining sex, being sexual and recovering from sexual experiences.
  • Neglect of important social, occupational or recreational activities because of sexual behavior.

Sexual addiction can be understood by comparing it to other types of addiction.
It follows the same progressive nature of other addictions.
There are numerous ways to help someone with their sexual addictions. For one, take the sexual addiction screening test at www.recoveryzone.com or contact Theo Kriek, a certified sex addiction therapist,  on 076 165 1587.
