An education on....

....Sex addiction.  I'm not a professional on this, but I have been doing research on the subject A LOT lately.  I don't care if I don't get any responses (like normal) or if I get bashed for this. I know there are other women out there like me who have gone through something similar to me and I want them to know they are not alone.

So many people think that sex addicition is where a person can't get enough sex, physically.  But what most people don't realize is that it isn't just physical, in fact it's mainly mental. A sex addict is someone who is addicted to porn, cyber sex, phone sex, sexting.  Someone who thinks about sex all day everyday.  It's someone who will do anything to get that "high" (if you want to call it that), but it doesn't always actually involve sex with another person.  A person can be a sex addict if they watch porn 24 hours a day.  They can be a sex addict if they join dating sites just to find someone to have cybersex with.  A sex addict is someone who never takes into account how or if they are hurting other people, the people around them that love them and care about them. Someone who makes ads on craigslist in order to get pictures. Someone who has ellicit affairs.  Voyeurism, infidelity, porn, cybersex, sexting, 900 numbers, or even rape, excessive use of all of this is considered sex addiction.  It's that same as being an alchoholic, or being addicted to drugs, it is a disease. A sickness.  Something that they will never get rid of and will have to work at overcoming every single day of their life.  But not without help, there are therapists, counselors, even people like me who are just willing to listen whether you are the addict or the one being hurt by the addicts feelings.  People who have been there.

This post may not make sense to a lot of you ladies and that's fine, bash away, I don't care.  But to those of you who get what I am talking about, who are experiencing it first hand, please feel free to PM me.  You may not know me, but I know what it's like, I've been there and I'm still there now with my DH.

Im not a sex addict, but I think DHs cousin and his wife are. It's ALL they want to talk about, to the point that they actually disgust me. I knew more about they're sex life than I'd ever want to in the first 10 minutes I knew her. They have 2 kids 8 and 12. They stay locked in the bedroom so they can have 'they're time' most of the day. The kids call me everyday asking me to come get them because there's nothing to do. (I've kept them most of the summer) I do believe it's an addiction and affects entire families.

My ex is a sex addict. He knew and was going to a counselor but since we split up he's decided none of it ever existed. Oh well his problem.

Most people don't acknowledge that sex addiction is a real thing.  Most people say oh sex is natural, it's a good thing and it is, to an extent.  It's when it goes over the line that it becomes an addiction.

My husband just admitted to being a sex addict.  He doesn't physically cheat but he enjoys a lot of porn, cyber sex, getting naked pictures, naughty emails, joins dating sites, etc.  He is going to start going to counseling, he just hasn't found a counselor yet and I've been looking for them.  Right now the closest one I've found is 45 minutes away, so he may go to him but only if I can't find one closer.
