Is Sex Addiction Real?

Ian Kerner, in his article on CNN Health, asks the questions in his review of a new book on Sex Addiction by David Ley, called The Myth of Sex Addiction.  Is sex addiction for real? Or is it “nothing more than a pop-psychology phenomenon, serving only to demonize sex, enforce moral views of sex and relationships and excuse irresponsible behaviors?”

“There are real dangers inherent in the sex addiction concept,” Ley writes.  And he may be right. 

Kerner quotes me, Dr Tammy Nelson and other experts in the field of sexology and couples therapy as well as addiction studies, to find out more about how sex addiction shows up in our society today.  Read Kerner’s article on sex addiction and decide for yourself, is sex addiction a myth?
