    Most of the traits mentioned appear narcissistic traits.

    I’m curious about the choice of pictures at the heading of several pages, e.g., The Impact of Sex Addiction with Dr. Linda Hatch. Why would a picture that focuses on breasts be chosen for a page trying to help sex addicts?

      Thanks for the question. The photo and layout were set up by the PsychCentral website people. Not my decision. I get it though..

    I have read so much in books and on line since finding out about my husband’s behaviors and subsequent treatment for sex addiction. I felt compelled to comment that this is one of the best, informative, well written articles that I have seen. So many of the points made in the article touched on questions I have been asking myself about how to know if he is sincere in his recovery or still acting out etc.
    I am particularly interested in the comment about offender sex addicts, as my husband was caught doing some non-consensual activity: stealing underwear, picture taking and surreptitiously masturbating in another room of a guest we had over. We currently live apart and have been discussing divorce. But I do still want to see him succeed in recovery whatever happens between us.
