  • we don't go to the beach where there are women in bathing suits and we don't see movies that are sexual.

  • Yes...there is a show about that. I think it is on TLC. Anyways, their body even goes through withdrawal like a drug addict from the hormones sex produces and the good feeling. They truly are addicted! That actually isnt a dumb question but if I was thinking that for days I would have just googled "sex addiction rehab". Weird thing for hubby to find in your history though! lol

  • I think they just have to learn about moderation. It's like people with food addictions can't stop eating, or they die.

  • sex addiction is NOT about sex, it's about trying to find intimacy that they can never attain. They just use sex as a means to an end they can never reach but no, they don't have to give up sex. They just have to try to attain intimacy via other avenues
