Chances are you might be dealing with sex addiction which is a real thing just like drug or alcohol addiction.
No doubt sex is fun and we all love it. But never forget the wise words-
“Excess of anything is a disaster”
How can any be addicted to sex you ask? Sex as an activity makes you high on dopamine, and other chemicals that excite, distract, and otherwise cover up the underlying distress or emptiness that is making you suffer.
We present to you the 10 signs which might indicate that you are a sex addict but not a cute one.
1. Monogamy ain’t for you
You have tried being committed to a person, but often you find yourself cheating on them with every chance you get. Regardless of how good sex life you have with your partner, you just aren’t satisfied with one person. One is never enough for you.
2. It’s a priority
You may have your career, family, or even kids but sex is always on number one for you. If you have second doubts about attending your best friend’s wedding and having sex, then chances are you are an addict.
3. Masturbation is like breathing
Everybody does it. People usually beat their bush once or twice a week. But doing it a couple of times in a day may just qualify as an addict.
If you are keen on making your biceps ripped, try gymming maybe instead of taking it out on your junior.
4. No heed to consequences
By this, we mean your health and safety. Sleeping with multiple partners recklessly can give you STDs, herpes, AIDS and other deadly things. But all these things come secondary to you. You don’t care getting bedridden, as long as you are with somebody in the bed.
5. Porn is your bae
You know all the best porn sites with names of your favourite pornstars etched in your mind. There doesn’t go a day when you don’t go incognito mode in your phone or laptop or even big ass TV screen.
6. You feel powerless
Your lust and libido control your life. Even if you try turning your life around, the need for sex doesn’t let you get out of the deep dark hole of addiction for bumping uglies at all waking hours.
7. Your exs have told you so
Who would know about your destructive sex life better than your former lover who had to face the brunt of it? If one person says you’re a sex addict, take it lightly. If two or three people are telling you this, look at why they’re coming to this conclusion.
8. Too much kinkiness
Everyone got fantasies and kinky fetishes in their sexual life. But this shouldn’t cross the limits of borderline craziness. Tying someone up once in a while is fine but walking someone naked on a leash is a tad bit much.
9. You pay for it
There is no harm in getting a prostitute for having sex with you. (If Richard Gere can do it, so can you). It becomes a problem when your bank balance dwindles down to nothing. You don’t wanna become a regular at hookerville.
10. You hate yourself
There’s no other way to say this lightly. After looking at what sex has done to your life, you start to hate yourself. You hate how you allowed it to take over, what it’s done to your life, and that you let it get this far.
Sex Addict! Just like any addiction, sex addiction is also reversible. With hope, patience and fewer orgasms you can achieve it.
