In fact, sex between people who know almost nothing about each other is a generally accepted and has even become a cliché scene in the movies. Two people who just met are so overcome with attraction that they go somewhere and proceed to rip each other’s clothes off and have sex.

Addictive sexual behaviors differ a great deal: going to prostitutes, frequenting strip clubs, exposing oneself, sex chat rooms, serial seduction, sexual massage, secretly videotaping others and so on. But I would argue that they are all in some way anonymous. First let’s look at the “anonymous sex” addict.
