An Intimacy Disorder That’s Commonly Misunderstood…
Sex addiction is often referred to as a process addiction, meaning that it doesn’t involve a physical substance. That said, it can be just as damaging, and it’s important to remember that it’s not a moral issue. People who struggle with sex addiction are not bad people.
Triggering the Same Reward Centers in the Brain as Drugs or Alcohol:
The chemical reaction that comes from sex or closeness to another human being can trigger the same reward centers in the brain as drugs or alcohol. While most people don’t become physically addicted to this particular chemical reaction, those that do can really suffer.
Sex addiction can involve anything from an unhealthy preoccupation with physical sex, to pornography. The addiction generally stems from some form of childhood trauma and the fallout encompasses a far wider spectrum than sexual dysfunction alone. It can lead to a decline in the ability to socialize normally, deterioration in family and romantic relationships, an impact in professional conduct, and even legal consequences.
If untreated, sex addiction can also lead to anxiety, depression, substance abuse issues, complete relationship breakdown, shame and, as mentioned, legal consequences.
