WHAT IS A SEX ADDICTION?

Sex addictions manifest in various forms, and although they can share some commonalities in some sense, most of them differ from one another. However, as a whole, sex addictions are typically characterised by sexual activities or urges that are difficult to control.

These urges manifest through different means. However, they usually begin as intrusive sexual thoughts that become unstoppable – this is the stage where they become problematic and are considered to be an addiction.
