What is Sexual
can involve a wide variety of practices. Sometimes an addict has trouble with
just one unwanted behavior, sometimes with many. A large number of sex addicts
say their unhealthy use of sex has been a progressive process. It may have
started with an addiction to masturbation, pornography (either printed or
electronic), or a relationship, but over the years progressed to increasingly
The essence of
all addiction is the addicts' experience of powerlessness over a compulsive behavior,
resulting in their lives becoming unmanageable. The addict is out of control
and experiences tremendous shame, pain and self-loathing. The addict may wish
to stop --- yet repeatedly fails to do so. The unmanageability of addicts'
lives can be seen in the consequences they suffer: losing relationships,
difficulties with work, arrests, financial troubles, a loss of interest in
things not sexual, low self-esteem and despair.
Sexual preoccupation takes up tremendous amounts of energy. As this
increases for the sex addict, a pattern of behavior (or rituals) follows, which
usually leads to acting out (for some it is flirting, searching the net
for pornography, or driving to the park.) When the acting out happens, there is
a denial of feelings usually followed by despair and shame or a feeling of
hopelessness and confusion. (From SAA Pamphlet "Getting Started")
