Get help: Contact a psychologist who specializes in sexual addictions. Consider going to a support group like aa for people who suffer from sexual addictions. Get a sponsor who has achieved control for a few years. They can help you. Good luck!

Recovery - saa works: Addiction to any compulsive sexual behavior, whether porn, voyeurism, massage parlors, anonymous hookups, prostitution, is possible through working the 12 steps w/ a sponsor in saa (sex addicts anonymous). Visit www.Sexaa.Org for more information. If there are no meetings in your area you can start one, attend online or telephone meetings. Recovery is possible & there is a lot of hope & help.
