Signs and Symptoms of S*x Addiction


Addiction is harmful no matter where it manifests or is diagnosed. If you find yourself worrying excessively about your private life, either mentally or physically, you may want to take a hard look at yourself to see if you have crossed over into the realm of obsessive behavior.

This essay, inspired by one on WebMD, explores the warning signs that may indicate a person has an intimacy addiction.

1. An individual struggling with addiction may have recurrent fantasies about having sexual relations. This is an illustration of an obsessional thought. If you realize that you regularly think about intimacy and have some weird dreams about it, you may be hooked to the act of having s£xual interactions.

2. Spending too much time on intimacy, to the point where you sometimes neglect whatever vital work you had planned for the day in favor of copulation or self-pleasure, is an example of excessive intimacy. Changing your ways can benefit you greatly, and the sooner you can do it, the better. This is further evidence that your conduct has become addictive.

3. Third, in order to satisfy your cravings, you may participate in risky activities or extreme intimate behaviors, which can have negative consequences for your health. Those who fall into this category may have an intimacy addiction and would benefit from a psychological evaluation or checkup as soon as possible.

4. An inability to limit one’s exposure to adult content online is another indicator of addiction. If you find yourself regularly viewing adult stuff online,  whether you engage in masturbation, you may have a problem. The best course of action here would be to see a doctor.
