Sex Addiction?: Not everyone considers "sex addiction" a useful diagnosis, in the first place. Read Dr. Marty Klein's thoughtful perspective on it: http://www.martyklein.com/why-sexual-addiction-is-not-a-useful-diagnosis-and-why-it-matters/ Suggest consulting w/ a sex-positive therapist to understand concerns you may have about yourself (or other person) in relation to compulsive sexual behavior.
