FEMALE SEX ADDICTION SILENCE
Female sex addiction is rarely spoken about. Such deafening silence has contributed to the disadvantage of women identifying the problem, and seeking help on time. A common belief classifies sex addiction as a predominant male problem. In reality, women of any age or social standing, and of any sexual orientation, culture, or ethnic background can become caught up in the cycle of sexual addiction.
DEBUNKING FEMALE SEXUALITY
Female sexuality has been historically confusing, feared, shamed, denied, and controversial. Historically, in western culture, (give or take a century ago, and ongoing in some sub-cultures) women were believed to not having any sexual desire, or biological sex drive. Common expectations used to associate female fulfilment exclusively with marriage and motherhood.
In reality, women past and present, who are experimenting with their sexuality and attractiveness, are sexually normal. Women simply learn to embrace their sexuality by getting in touch with their sexual and sensual selves. This is a natural integration process of healthy female sexuality.
WHAT IS FEMALE SEXUAL ADDICTION
Female sexual addiction is characterised by escalations of compulsive sexual fantasies and acts, and escalations of sexual intensity. There is no evidence of biological abnormal sex drives in women with sex addiction. Rather, female sex addiction means dependency on sex induced ‘brain highs’ of motivation, reward, and dominance as a coping mechanism. Female sex addicts experience sexual euphoria due to increased dopamine and opioid peptide activity in their brain’s reward circuits. Brain highs feel good but are short lived, and soon followed by withdrawal and dysphoria.
As common in all addictions, lasting satisfaction can never be achieved, and cravings return. Moderate to serious mood swings may become noticeable, and may peak in intense frustration or violent anger when sex is unattainable. (related to SRD or Sexual Rage Disorder).
FEMALE SEX ADDICTION CYCLE
- The term sex addiction means inability to stop, or permanently abstain, from an addictive behaviour despite awareness of the negative consequences the addictive behaviour is bearing. Female sexual addiction can be identified where sex has become a controlling order in her daily life and thought process, and where sex is overriding her essential needs for personal safety, and/or her marital, maternal, professional, social, or financial well being.
