What Causes Sexual Addiction?
By Michael Herkov, Ph.D


"Why some people, and not others, develop an addiction to sex is poorly understood. Possibly some biochemical abnormality or other brain changes increase risk. The fact that antidepressants and other psychotropic medications have proven effective in treating some people with sex addiction suggests that this might be the case.

Studies indicate that food, abused drugs and sexual interests share a common pathway within our brains’ survival and reward systems. This pathway leads into the area of the brain responsible for our higher thinking, rational thought and judgment.

The brain tells the sex addict that having illicit sex is good the same way it tells others that food is good when they are hungry. These brain changes translate into a sex addict’s preoccupation with sex and exclusion of other interests, compulsive sexual behavior despite negative consequences and failed attempts to limit or terminate sexual behavior.

This biochemical model helps explain why competent, intelligent, goal-directed people can be so easily sidetracked by drugs and sex. The idea that, on a daily basis, a successful mother or father, doctor or businessperson can drop everything to think about sex, scheme about sex, identify sexual opportunities and take advantage of them seems unbelievable. How can this be?

The addicted brain fools the body by producing intense biochemical rewards for this self-destructive behavior.

People addicted to sex get a sense of euphoria from it that seems to go beyond that reported by most people. The sexual experience is not about intimacy. Addicts use sexual activity to seek pleasure, avoid unpleasant feelings or respond to outside stressors, such as work difficulties or interpersonal problems. This is not unlike how an alcoholic uses alcohol. In both instances, any reward gained from the experience soon gives way to guilt, remorse and promises to change.

Research also has found that sex addicts often come from dysfunctional families and are more likely than non-sex addicts to have been abused. One study found that 82 percent of sex addicts reported being sexually abused as children. Sex addicts often describe their parents as rigid, distant and uncaring. These families, including the addicts themselves, are more likely to be substance abusers. One study found that 80 percent of recovering sex addicts report some type of addiction in their families of origin."

I think it's valid. Makes a good point.


It even explains why people who are not addicted to sex..can get completely thrown off track and wreck their lives with an affair and such.
The drive can be too strong for them to escape.
If someone keeps waving it at you..it can get harder and harder..you get SO tempted.
Just like if you love chocolate cake, but are diabetic. But someone keeps offering you choclate cakes..eventually..you are probably gonna take a bite.

This is why people who go out of their way to go after married or involved people (whether they are married or inovled themsleves) are just really horrible, selfish people. And just becaus eit's common, it doesn't make it any less selfish or horrible. It just makes it..common.

A-lot of therapists who research this kind (usually marriage/relationship councelors) of thing say to avoid any potential situation and avoid anyone who you feel just might be tempting you to go 'off track' and do something you don't want to. (whether they are doing it deliberatel or not)

This is why some researchers believe men and women often cannot 'just be friends'.
It's just to easy for it to go further, unless you are both totally unatracted to each other.

This could make for a really boring life though..one full of walls

Which is not healthy in itself.

There must be some kind of truce..balance a person can find

It's a tightrope walk we all walk on at some point or another..attached or not

Also to note..I think there are plenty of sex addicts that aren't even hooking up with people. They are complusiove masterbators and/or sex toy, porn people.

It seems to me..when a person has gone cross the line from being very sexual to sexually addicted..it is that something has gone wrong with a normal human instinct.the urge to procreate and genetic diversity etc...it went haywaire or something

I mean it might be okay for an animal (the phrase 'dirty dawg') comes to mind..and humans are animals..but we are suppose to have higher minds (and spirits if you're religious) that are suppose to cross check this kind of behavior

That's just weird. I can't imagine being addicted to sex.

Anyway, the article sounds pretty valid, but just as some douchebag that uses alcohol as an excuse to why he smacked his wife around in court, sexual addiction is going to be the new reason to excuse every ***hole that wants to use it, from infidelity.

It's hard to have any sympathy for addicts (being one myself) when, no matter the reason, the root of any addiction is a lack of self control. Sure there may be other reasons why, say my wife can have one drink, 3 times a year, and I am an alcoholic, but it basically comes down to my lack of self control. Not anything to blame with my parent's way of raising me, or whatever.

Coma turns grandad of 81 sex mad

An 81-year-old grandad has been put under house arrest by his family after a bizarre accident turned him into a sex addict.

Widower Angelo de Luca was in a coma for four days after falling out of a plum tree in his garden.

But when he came round he was nookie mad and blew s3,000 in one brothel session alone with a young hooker called Leona.

Angelo, from Biasca, Switzerland, said: "Since my wife died a year ago, Leona's been there for me and given me new life."

Son Daniel, who now controls his money after a court ruling, said: "The coma must have wiped out a brain function - the one inhibiting the sex drive."

Parkinson's medication 'causes sex, gambling addictions'

Jun 4, 2010.

Parkinson drug class action launched against pharmacuetical (The World Today) Map: Melbourne 3000
Related Story: Patients to launch class action over Parkinson's drug
Related Link: The 7.30 Report: Wonder drug accused of ruining lives


A group of people suffering Parkinson's disease is launching a class action claiming their medication has caused gambling and sex addiction.

Hooked: The case alleges that some Parkinson's sufferers developed gambling addictions as a result of their medication (ABC News)

The Federal Court in Melbourne is being asked to hear claims that some people taking prescription medication to treat the tremors associated with Parkinson's disease developed a range of uncharacteristic addictive disorders.

Lawyers will claim two drug companies breached a duty of care to the customers on multiple fronts.

The action targets Pfizer Australia and Aspen Pharmacare Australia and will claim the companies failed to properly research the possible side effects of the drug, failed to provide proper warning about the increased risks of compulsive disorders, and did not withdraw the drug from sale after they became aware of the increased risks.

The writ claims some people taking the drug are alleged to have become addicted to pornography and lost their life savings to gambling, and that the compulsive behaviour ceased once they stopped taking the drug.

Melbourne law firm Arnold Thomas and Becker is representing the claimants suing the companies, which market a class of drug known as dopamine agonists.

Pfizer sells the prescribed drug cabergoline in Australia under the brand name Cabaser.

The drug is often used as a treatment for Parkinson's sufferers under the age of 65.

The drug restores the imbalance of the chemical dopamine, which controls the the body's movements.

Aspen Pharmacare markets a similar drug called pergolide, which is marketed as Permax in Australia.

There is no known cure for Parkinson's which affects about 80,000 Australians.

Symptoms of the degenerative disease include tremors, slowness of movement and stiffness.

Good article there. I can definately see a connection with other addictions and abuse being present in the family. Makes sense to me.
