Is Sex Addiction “Real”?

When Patrick Carnes first began to write about sex addiction in the early 80’s no one else had ever identified these issues quite the way he described them. Many clinicians and researchers had seen the behavior but chose to call it sexual compulsivity rather than sexual addiction. For many years this has been a primary topic of debate chiefly among professionals. Within the last 10 years the research on this topic has become much more available. Studies showing that the brain chemistry of addicts appears to be different from non-addicts is helping us clarify the diagnosis. My belief then, as now, is that what we call it is not nearly as important as what we do about it. Those of us who are on the front lines of treating people in pain must be ready to understand, empathize and offer guidance about the way out of that pain.
