Lack of self discipline is not a disease.

I say this as someone who's lost loved ones to actual diseases, you know, the kind where you're not a decision away from being asymptomatic.

Pazuzu Smith-Jones: By whom? The article doesn't say.


It does, at the very end in an aside quote because it fails at journalism. WHO, no citation provided.

Also I'd like to point out that the story is about someone with a real, physical dependency (cocaine) who had to cut other activities out of his life that caused him to relapse, not someone whose issue was actually sex. This is not uncommon in treating drug addiction... If you doctor tells you to stop hanging out socially with your old heroin dealer they're not saying you're addicted to greasy slimeballs with gang connections.

Well that solves it all addiction is just a lack of self discipline.  I guess you solved a major issue for society there champ. Why didn't the rest of us think of that?

So did WHO make Sex Addiction into an actual diagnosis, or is this journalist missing the point about an entirely different problem?

I was a sex and drug addict, too.

They called it the 80s.

The problem isn't sex addiction, it is people insisting that their partner should love them unconditionally, while they refuse to do the same.

steklo: Sex Addiction is now classified as a mental illness.

Hurr durr. No, having a sex drive isn't the same as a sex addiction.

Sexual addiction, or sex addiction, is an excessive or compulsive behavior surrounding sexual activities without any regard to consequences of either the individual or the individual's sexual partners.
Common Symptoms of Sexual Addiction
• compulsory masturbation
• extramarital affairs
• unsafe sex
• prostitution
• impulsive viewing of pornography
• molestation

So... stop being obtuse.
 
2018-07-12 09:16:16 AM  
I'm seriously astounded at how many people are too lazy to google the definition of sex addiction, and think having a sex drive = addiction.

Read, you idiots. Read.

There are no individual personality traits, only syndromes, disorders and mental illnesses.
How long before people who are just plain dicks like me get to claim some kind of "disorder".that makes us that way?
 
2018-07-12 09:18:45 AM  
Yeah, a big thing about mental illness is that it's a problem for you. Hear voices? Not a problem, an illness, unless it interferes with your ability to function.

Steve McQueen's Shame is a good example of it, plus sexy, conflicted Michael Fassbender.

I'm waiting for the labor day weekend telethons to solicit money for the Sexual Addiction Half Way House. Or if not a telethon, one of those 30 minute infomercials that come on early Sunday Mornings.

So, how many of these symptoms to you need to qualify as a sex addict?  A friend was just asking...

Wanting too much sex is now a mental illness but not knowing which one you are isn't? A high sex drive is bad, but wanting to chop off your man parts, shove them inside of you and have silicon implants in your chest is normal...

Bravo,bravo....

Not sure about the 900 numbers existing anymore. But I forgot to mention that during the infomercial you can hear Sarah McLachlan's Adia in the background.

Last time I said something like that I got chewed out because I'm not a doctor, and I don't understand how important it is that insurance has to pay for things as important as this.

"I have a sex drive" -> "I have sexual addiction"

"I'm sad sometimes" -> "I"m clinically depressed"

Mental diseases are all easy to cure- just make different choices!

I believe you mean compulsive masturbation.

Compulsory masturbation is another fetish entirely.
