A sex addict may think about sex constantly and engage in risky and potentially dangerous sexual activities, not caring about the consequences.

Sex addiction, in common with many other addictions can be successfully overcome using hypnotherapy. It does require a willingness to admit to yourself that you have a problem and a commitment to overcome it and once these factors are there, hypnotherapy can be an extremely successful form of therapy for sexual addiction.

Common Sexual Addiction Behaviours

  • Compulsive masturbation
  • Engaging in numerous extramarital affairs
  • Regular use of pornography
  • Involvement in unsafe sex, even with strangers or prostitutes
  • Phone or computer sex and use of personals adverts
  • Exhibitionism
  • Voyeurism
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual assault or even, in extreme cases, rape

A sex addict may feel they have very little control over their actions and may also derive very little satisfaction from their sexual activities. There may also be feelings of guilt or shame and the addiction may lead to the addict behaving in a secretive manner in order to hide the behaviour from those closest to them.

Overcoming Sexual Addiction – The First Step

The most important first step is for the addict to acknowledge that they have a problem. Without an honest acceptance and admission of their problem, the sex addict cannot realistically expect to get better. Sometimes it can take a major event, such as losing a job because of viewing porn on company computers, or the breakup of a relationship or marriage due to the discovery of extra-marital sexual activity, or perhaps being arrested or contracting a sexually transmitted disease, before a sex addict is finally forced to face up to the fact that they have a problem.
