1. Sexual Actions Involving Several Partners: Due to their insatiable sexual cravings, sex addicts frequently fail to remain loyal to their spouses. As a result, they are more likely to engage in dangerous behaviors such as cheating and performing sexual actions with many partners.
3. Sex Compromise: Almost all sex addicts are prepared to trade time and currency, especially if illegal sex is the ultimate game. Sexual desire is too strong to resist. That is, sex addicts are often willing to let go of their hard-earned money and the free time they have to meet their urges.
5. You Cannot Reduce the Time you Spend on Sexual Activity: As with drug addiction, it is often difficult to reduce sexual addiction because sexual urges become stronger rather than weaker over time. Finding sex addicts is easy (similar to games and internet addicts) when they are trying to minimize the time they spend on sexually related activities.
6. Can’t Discuss the Problem: If you’ve tried to talk to alcoholics about their alcohol use, you may run into the same problem with sex addiction. You may experience the same level of rejection and may not be able to open and discuss the issue. While that can never happen, the first conversation can often be frustrating and anxious for the addict’s loved ones and family.
7. Show Serious Indifference to a Partner: This is probably the most obvious sign of a relationship problem where one partner likes to have sex and the other does not. Often, when half of a couple begins to withdraw from sex, it’s a sign that something deeper is happening. This does not necessarily mean the problem of sexual addiction. However, if withdrawal from sex is accompanied by other warning signs, it is very likely that sex addiction is a factor.
8. Watching Porn Constantly: Watching porn constantly and having sexual fantasy is another sign that someone may be suffering from sexual addiction. This can cause a lot of problems, as real-life sex often cannot accommodate the pornographic scenarios that people see online or on TV.
9. Post-Sex Remorse or Guilt: Shame and guilt are often associated with most addictions, including eating disorders. The more people eat, the more they feel guilty. It’s similar to sexual involvement. I feel good now, but not so soon. The kind of “emotional hangover” that sex addicts often experience after dangerous sexual behavior is not enviable. These inappropriate emotions often accompany them for a long time until the cycle begins after they receive the next “correction”.
