Sexual Addiction

Those suffering from sexual addiction, like other forms of addiction, participate in an activity to the point where the behaviour becomes compulsive, negatively affecting many aspects of daily life, including work, school, home life, or relationships. In the case of sexual addiction, a person compulsively engages in, or participates in a sexual activity. These activities can include sexual intercourse, voyeurism, pornography, phone sex and online sexual encounters, among others. Often, those struggling with sexual addiction are unable to control sexual thoughts, urges and/or behaviours, but do not seek treatment due to the taboo nature of the topic. Certain forms of sexual addiction can lead to poor judgment, engaging in risky behaviours, unwanted pregnancies, and potentially serious health concerns and legal trouble. The World Health Organization (WHO) includes “excessive sexual drive” as a disease in their list of classification of diseases, and treatment is available. We know that speaking about addiction can be difficult or embarrassing. If you aren’t sure about your own sexual activity, or that of a friend or loved one, we are here to help. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
