What is Sexual Addiction and how does it evolve?
Expert Dr. Doug Weiss on his SexAddict.com website explains: Sex addiction is the active use of sexual behaviour, whether it is masturbation, an internet porn addiction, fetishes and/or behaviour with self or others in a compulsive life-destroying pattern. This is a real issue impacting millions of individuals, marriages, and families around the globe. The impact is felt in the life of the addict and his or her surrounding family members and friends. You and the one you love can recover from the damaging effects the addiction can have on your relationship.
