    Therapy first, with an AASECT-certified sex therapist who also has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Even an authority like Rob Weiss admits that many cases that present like sex addiction are either situational or not sex addiction at all. It takes a clinical psychologist — please, one who acknowledges the reality of sex addiction but is not simply trained as an addictionologist — to do the most dispassionate assessment and create a treatment plan for whatever brings the patient with sexual issues into therapy.

    This was a brilliant article, and helps to explain why the couples’ therapy I went through with a SA was so useless. Most of it was focused upon making sure he didn’t feel bad about anything, and the rest upon how I must have been the cause of his addiction. So he simply found a new “partner” and now continues his addiction–happily.
