Like many pleasant activities, sex can become addictive. This means that I can't stop doing it even if I want to and even if it is causing me problems. Clinical known as Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder, pornography addiction and sex addiction become issues when someone has tried to stop or cut back and hasn't been able to. Sex and porn addiction can be devastating to the person struggling with it as well as to their partners, family, community, and other loved ones.

Human beings are biologically wired to desire, enjoy, and pursue sexual relationships. Doing so has ensured the survival of our species. Yet, there doesn't seem to be many other natural instincts that have caused as much trouble as sex. Technology only increases our capacity to use sex in problematic and desctructive ways. Pornography, dating sites (some explicityly for affairs), chat rooms, web cams, and robotics have all served to lure men, and yes - women, too - into sexual behaviors which they otherwise would avoid. Whether you struggle with pornography, other online sexual activities, affairs, prostitution, or other sexual behaviors, we can help. If you want to stop these destructive patterns in your life, contact us today.
Are you wondering whether pornography or sex addiction may be a problem for you? Take a self-assessment that will help you answer this question.Take assessment
When a husband has had multiple affairs or compulsively watches pornography, or a wife has emotional or sexual relationships outside of the marriage, or a significant other engages in sexual behavior that puts himself and his partner at risk for STIs, injury, financial calamity, social embarrassment, or legal jeopardy, the outcome can be overwhelming and shocking. Recovery from infidelity is difficulty. This is especially true when the betrayal has occurred over and over again. Betrayed partners may experience a special kind of trauma known as Intimate Deception Betrayal Trauma (IDBT). Coined by Dr. Sherri Keffer, IDBT aptly names the wounds that these partners experience. Many partners suffer from symptoms of PTSD after discovering their significant other's sexual deception. If you have been affected by someone else's sexual behavior or if you are experiencing symptoms of trauma because of your partner's sexual betrayal, don't go through it alone. We can help you heal.
Partners who are recovering from someone else's sexual betrayal know it's hard work to focus on their own healing. And they know it's hard work to heal the relationship. Partners and addicted loved ones can heal and regain intimacy when both parties are willing to get support and take steps toward their own recovery. With the help of specially trained therapists and the support of others who have been there, the betrayed and the addicted partner can find hope, love, and growth out of pain and despair.
