Just Horny or a Hard-Core Addict?

Testing for the abnormal outlooks on sex

Think you might be addicted to sex? The following questions are among those asked by Sex Addicts Anonymous to assess potential addiction:

" Do you keep secrets about your sexual or romantic activities from those important to you? Do you lead a double life?

" Have your needs driven you to have sex in places or situations or with people you would not normally choose?

" Do you feel shame about your body or your sexuality, such that you avoid touching your body or engaging in sexual relationships? Do you fear that you have no sexual feelings, that you are asexual?

" Is it taking more variety and frequency of sexual and romantic activities than previously to bring the same levels of excitement and relief?

" Do your sexual activities include the risk, threat or reality of disease, pregnancy, coercion or violence?

If your answer is yes to more than one of these questions, SAA encourages you to seek resource literature about addiction or to attend an SAA meeting to assess your needs. Meeting times and locations are available at www. sexaa.org.
