Take a look at our list for some sex addiction s you want to look out for.

So you like to have sex. Good for you. Sex is the best. But lately there have been some problems in your life because of your sexual habits. Maybe you really love your wife, but she dumped you after catching you having sex with the babysitter.

Perhaps, you were doing great at your job, but you got fired after getting caught in your office beating off to porn. Or maybe, like me, you knew you had a problem all along, and thought the most important thing was to not let anyone ever find out. It took me a long time to admit I was a sex addict. I could deal with being a playboy, a hedonist, maybe even a freak, but a sex addict?

Not me. It took about 20 years, two divorces, the loss of jobs and homes before I admitted it. When I was in the process of getting my second divorce, I was seeing a therapist. He was cool enough. He was funny. We got each other on a certain level, which sometimes is all you can ask for when you pay someone to talk to you about your problems. I got along with him well enough that I decided to do something new: I was going to be honest.

How everything I did was deed to either get me laid or indulge my kinks, and my kinks were getting more extreme by the day. The most important thing to me in the world, by far, was sex and all the adrenaline and anxiety that came with it. I told him what had been going on. First, I lost my job because I was having affairs with so many people at work. Then, my wife tossed me out of the house because I was screwing around with so many people at places outside of work.

That is the thing about sex. So many people get all worked up about the sex addict thing. Who cares what you call your problem? Call it sexual compulsion if it makes you feel better. By acting out with sex, you are dosing your brain with dopamine and other chemicals that excite, distract, and otherwise cover up the underlying distress or emptiness that is making you suffer.

Below is a list of 10 s that could mean you are a sex addict. I did all 10 of the things on this list in all of my relationships. I was often accused by women of being a selfish, lying asshole, or a total freak, and I was both of those things, but no one ever asked me if I might actually have a problem. I write this list as a heterosexual man, though, this can also apply to women and LGBT individuals. If you have none of the things on the list, good job. Go screw with impunity.

If you have between one and three of these, check yourself and figure out what is going on, if you have more than three, you need to find someone to talk to, and you should probably do it soon. This one is tricky. Maybe you just cheat all the time, and lie about where you are, and how you spend your money. But, if you have sexual secrets that you refuse to share with anyone, or if somehow you figure out ways to spend Christmas with two different women done it then something is way, way off. Sex and your sexual proclivities are private, but if your whole life is going to go down the tubes if people know what you are REALLY up to, and you have to lie to everyone constantly just to stay afloat, then you have at least the beginnings of a problem.

When your girlfriend talks about her feelings you listen—I mean you really do. But when it comes to sex, you could care less about people. They are just objects to use to get off, or toys to play with. Because sex is your one priority, everything else is always totally messed up. When you are at work, you spend the majority of your time trying to get your boss to fuck you, once you succeed, you try to get that cute temp to meet you out for drinks.

Once you start banging her, you try for the woman in the cubicle across from yours. Which then makes you feel ashamed, so to combat that you go right back into fantasy. Your wife is upstairs and you are banging her best friend on the couch. You just spent your mortgage payment at the strip club, or you just gave your credit card to your dominatrix.

If you are doing things that are going to screw you over in the future, and you KNOW they are going to screw you over in the future, then your sex life has crossed the line and is now officially a problem. What is the issue, is if the kink you have becomes your whole scene, and you need to go deeper and deeper into the world to get off. What can start off as fun, can wind up as something deeply destructive down the road. And I do mean all the time. You do it in the morning, you do it on your lunch break, and you do it before you go to sleep.

I would sometimes even masturbate right after sex—with my partner passed out next to me. Do what you do. It was just a matter of time before I would do something totally off the charts, get caught at it, and have to move on. It was a lifestyle. You try to stop, but you lose everything. Little by little, you lose everything. Try not to get here. Go talk to someone you trust. Who knows, you could always be a sociopath.

I know I did. And the worst part—I was so sure, so entirely sure, that if I told anyone who I was, and the things that I did, they would hate me, too.
