What is sexual addiction?
Sexual addiction is when sexual thoughts and acts become risky and compulsive. In reality, sexual addiction is actually a fantasy addiction. What does giving into fantasy do? It numbs. Addiction isn't just about getting a high but numbing underlying pain. The problem with giving into fantasy is that it prevents you from being able to find true intimacy with another person.
