Repeated studies on sex addiction involves a few common
conclusions like having urges that disturbs the daily chores, spending maximum
time thinking about sex, intentions to enjoy more intense and frequent sex.
Most of us don’t know that sex is just a behaviour and
not a material that can eventually manipulate your brain functioning. Even the
eminent scientists do not consider it to be any kind of addiction.
Justin Lehmiller, PhD, sex researcher stated that
“Some people who feel like their sexual behaviors are out of control aren’t
truly out of control. In fact, there’s some research finding that people who
have moral qualms with their desires often label those desires as ‘compulsive’
or ‘out of control,’ perhaps because that’s easier than trying to accept and
come to terms with one’s desires.”
It is highly possible that the religious views,
culture and upbringing of a person can affect their sexual preferences. There
are skills and meditations to deal with excessive sexual desire and doctors are
working on it. Counseling can also be considered as a good source of treatment,
but it is also necessary to know what addiction actually means to the person indicted.
