According to "clevelandclinic.org," an addiction exists when a person experiences fixation, compulsion, and loss of control during sexual activity and persists in doing so in spite of the consequences.
Despite the euphoria and relief that a person experiences after engaging in sexual activity, sexual addiction harms a person's mental health and worsens over time. It is characterized by a vicious cycle of intense sexual desire and low self-esteem.
Among the indications that you have a sex addiction are;
Chronic sexual fancies and thoughts.
Frequent interactions with different partners as well as strangers.
lying about one's sex life.
Sexual obsession that interferes with regular activities and work productivity.
Putting oneself or others at risk in order to engage in or conduct a sexual relationship.
The desire for power and dominance during sexual activity.
feeling regret and guilt following sexual activity.
You can develop a sexual addiction if certain things happen. Some of them consist of;
An imbalance of mood-regulating substances in your brain. Your brain's neurotransmitters (dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin) might change your desire for sexual activity if they are present in high concentrations or are overactive.
Addiction to sexual activity may be influenced by illnesses like dementia, epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and damage to the frontal lobe, amygdala, or prefrontal cortex parts of the brain.
altered brain activity that creates new neural connections for addicted behavior.
substance abuse, particularly the use of cocaine, amphetamines, and alcohol.
