Sex Therapists For Sex Addicts In Australia::Sydney & Online
Individuals, who are addicted to sex, do not necessarily test positive for elevated levels of the sex hormone testosterone, nor does a sex addict like sex anymore than a non-sex addict, but sexually addicted persons experience a considerable lack of adequate meaning and control over their sexual desires.
Once being aroused by sexual stimuli, untreated sexual addicts may experience overpowering surges of excitement, and a temporary impairment in their cognitive ability to stop when they want to, or to making sound decisions for safe sex practise. In some cases, sex addicts under arousal may also fail to prioritise safety when engaging in other, non-sexual, risk-taking activities.
An overwhelming need to satisfy/self-medicate one's sexual cravings, frustrations, or tensions tend to 'swallow up' all reason. Irritability, nervousness, anxiety, depression and preoccupation with sex and pornography, or other 'acting-out' behaviours, are symptoms of sexual health disorders that can increase to breaking point, if help is not sought from a sex therapist.
LIVING ON THE EDGE
Some sex addicts may experience strong desires for 'living on the edge'. Those desires are commonly satisfied by preparing for, or engaging in risky and potentially dangerous sexual or highly stimulating non-sexual activities. This state is marked by euphoria and 'a feeling of being really alive', and is a part of your addiction.
