#SexAddiction is Declared a #Mental Disorder

Drugs, alcohol, and gambling play no part in the continuity of humankind. However, the addiction treatment is quite obvious: cut it out. So now that the WHO had declared sex addiction a mental-health disorder, what’s the viable treatment? Good news: it’s not an addiction, according to most experts.

Sad but true, a categorical sex-addict derives little to no pleasure from sex and they’ll jeopardize their health in pursuit of the empty activity. Are these people sociopathic in that their pursuit of the sexual end-game is all for naught? What a waste of a Russel Brand or a Colin Farrell.

It does seem like a bit of a cop-out for guys being guys. If  you didn’t want to hold accountability for not keeping the snake in the cage – fess up. But if the reality is that you’d rather put your health and well-being aside for the sexual exploration to nowhere, maybe you should talk to someone.

Although the WHO has declared it a “mental-health condition” they have not outlined a first line of treatment.  Perhaps it starts with a change in lifestyle, a focus on your physical health, your mental health, and the overall connection with self. Your past has happened. Your fugure is yours to do what you desire with it.
