Struggling With Sex Addiction In Surrey?

Sex is both stimulating and rewarding so it’s not surprising it can be addictive. In fact, this addiction is not entirely dissimilar to substance abuse, as powerful chemical substances are released during sex, including a huge endorphin rush.

The causes of sex and love addiction are often rooted in childhood and adolescence, with trauma and neglect often potential reasons. It is commonly described as an intimacy disorder and, like all addictions, can have a negative effect on both you and your family.

Sex addiction has been described ‘as any sexual activity which feels out of control’. This could involve sex itself, watching pornography, masturbation, using prostitutes or calling sex lines.

It’s also described as ‘frequent self-destructive or high-risk activities’ that are not emotionally fulfilling, and that one is ashamed of; and something that you cannot stop even though it’s causing frequent problems.  This might involve a ruined relationship with a partner or the transmission of STDs.
