Am I a Sex Addict?
Are you permanently preoccupied with sex, its pursuit, preparation and recovery? Sexual dependency or sexual compulsivity also known as hyper-sexuality or nymphomania is an inability to manage your sexual behaviour. It is an addiction in the truest sense in that it is extremely complicated to live with. Do you find that you need to increase the intensity, frequency and number of interactions to achieve the desired effect? If you are unable to live a normal life because you’re constantly driven to fulfil your sexual desires, you are a sex addict. This behaviour is risky for you and in turn puts your loved ones at risk of STDs. If your sexual choices are making your life unmanageable and you fail to keep promises to change you are in need of treatment.

Side Effects of Sex Addiction
While sex addiction results in many physical side-effects there are few physical symptoms. Feelings of shame, anxiety, guilt and obsessive compulsive tendencies are common, as is a feeling of immobilisation due to sexual obsessions. Health risks include sexually transmitted diseases, HIV and Hepatitis B or C. Like other addiction patterns the sufferer will cause the breakdown of family relationships and can even end up falling into substance abuse, legal troubles and possible financial ruin.
