Sex & Pornography Addiction Counselling Psychotherapy
“Sex Addiction” is described as a compulsive need to engage in or perform sexual acts in order to achieve the kind of “fix” that a person with an eating or alcohol use difficulties gets from a drink or someone with opiate use gets from using opiates.
Pornography, differs from Sex and other addictions, in that it enables the user to engage in a ‘non person’ relationship with the illusion that all of their addictive sexual compulsions can be satisfied.
Pornography & Sex Addictions can best be seen as an Attachment or Relationship disorders. Sex related addictions profoundly affects our most personal feelings like no other addiction.
Are you addicted to Pornography and or Sex?
Due to the intense conflicts that accompany it, sexual related addictions are also the most complex obsession. With the correct approach, it can be overcome with simple, straightforward, common sense methods.
Struggling with a sex addiction, such as promiscuity, compulsive masturbation, anonymous sex, phone sex, fetishes, voyeurism is quite different from an addiction to pornography. The best way to described pornography addiction is as an addiction or an obsessive relationship with a fantasy.
While pornography has little appeal or interest for one sexually addicted person, another person’s entire sex addiction revolves around pornography. For others, pornography is an added supplement to their regular addictive behaviour. The enraptured, isolation and shameful feelings of the sexually addicted person are extremely powerful.
