Is Your Partner a Sex Addict?

Your Partner Might Be A Sex Addict

Do you wonder if your partner might be a sex addict?  Ask yourself the following questions. You may find some clarity.

  1. Do you feel as if your partner is inordinately preoccupied with sex? For example, when your partner wakes up he or she grabs their phone, even before getting out of bed, to check their possible hookup app profiles, looking to see if anyone contacted them in the night.
  2. Has your partner tried (and failed) to either cut back on or quit certain sexual behaviors altogether. For instance, your partner might have promised you and/or others that they would stop looking at porn. And your partner might have kept those promises for a few days or maybe even a few weeks. But then, suddenly, you found your partner right back at it.
  3. Has your partner experienced negative consequences related to their sexual behaviors? For example, related to your partner’s sexual behaviors have they ruined important relationships, struggled or been reprimanded at work or in school, gotten anxious and depressed, spent money she or he would have rather spent elsewhere, been arrested, or experienced other problems?

If you answered yes to these three questions, there is a strong possibility your partner is sexually addicted. To find out more and have all your questions answered, call Ed Dudding, CSAT at 208-755-7114.
