5 thoughts on “Recognizing the Consequences of Sexual Addiction

    I liked the clear statements of negative consequences of sexual/porn addiction. The addict naturally rationalizes away the negative consequences and is helped by seeing them organized in a plain, straightforward manner.

    Sounds like a bit of a chicken and egg problem. You said that “sex addicts will tell you that they’re unhappy, and that they’re having a variety of life and relationship problems.” How do you tell the difference between the person who is using sex to self-soothe the way that another person might use Internet gaming, a hobby, two hours a day in the gym, or 5 hours a day in front of the TV to self-soothe, and the peson who is addicted and their life and relationship problems are a result of the addiction?

    I also liked the clear listing of real consequences of sex and pornography addiction. It is important to clarify the consequences so that the typical rationalizations are seen as untrue.

    Reading this was like looking on the inside of my ex. He is still in denial. He absolutely destroyed our family and still believes his stuff as normal. I am absolutely devastated and horrified that seemingly good men hide this addiction so completely.
