Persons who are sexually addicted feel strongly compelled to engage in
may have strong, unrelenting thoughts about sex that interfere in their
abilities to focus on other important aspects of life, such a work and
relationships.  People addicted to sex may take risks and suffer many
losses such a loss of relationships, jobs, finances and even health.
Some may find themselves facing legal charges and arrest.  Even so,
they continue with their behaviors.  Many sexually addicted people
make multiple attempts to control their behaviors yet the behaviors
really have strong control over the person.  
There is a big difference between a healthy
enjoyable sex drive and having a sex
addiction.  A person with sex addiction often
comes to find  there is little satisfaction in their
sexual activity.  They are not forming
meaningful relationships.

shame and guilt about their activities.  And they
are faced with having to deal with the severe
negative, life changing consequences that
result from their behaviors.
