Is sex addiction real?
While sex addiction is a hotly debated topic among mental and behavioral health professionals, some experts do not accept that non-substance addictions exist. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders is responsible for determining what falls under addiction. The DSM categorized sex addiction under the category of “Sexual Disorders” and not addiction.
The only non-substance addiction categorized as addiction by the DSM to date is gambling addiction. However, the DSM describes sex addiction as the compulsive search for multiple partners or the compulsive fixation on an unattainable partner. The DSM also considers compulsive masturbation, compulsive love relationships, and compulsive sexuality in a relationship with a spouse/partner as sexual disorders. Someone with a compulsive obsession for sex or masturbation or viewing pornography is in less control of their impulses than an average person, making sex addiction a genuine and unsettling disorder.
Can my sex addiction make me a sex offender?
Unfortunately, there is a strong association between individuals who suffer from sex addiction and sex offenders. 35% of sexual offenders are sexual addicts. Research states that sex addicts are more likely than non-addicts to report a preoccupation with sex and co-morbid addiction problems with drugs or alcohol.
Roughly 14 out of 40 convicted sex offenders have a diagnosis of sex addiction. While some sex offenders do it for sexual gratification, a few engage in the act for a perverse need for power, dominance, revenge, anger, or control. The changes in the brains of sex offenders showed similar patterns to that of the brains of sex addicts. However, not everyone who is a sex addict will become a sex offender. Seeking timely treatment from a Christian-based sex treatment center in Boulder can reduce your risk of committing sexual crimes and help you lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
