Kinkly explains Sex Addiction

There is some disagreement over whether sex addiction is a legitimate medical issue that requires treatment like drug and alcohol addictions. Sex addictions have been compared to conditions such as gambling addictions and eating disorders. People who suffer from sex addiction exhibit typical addictive behaviors. Their behavior often falls outside the boundaries of socially acceptable or normal behavior, which makes it difficult for them to maintain routine aspects of life and develop and sustain healthy relationships. There are many different options available for treatment and recovery from sex addiction.
