Sex addiction : For a sex addict, the sex is different from the sex in a loving relationship. I believe they are capable of. "real" love. They need to work with a therapist trained in sex addiction for best results. I wish you the best.

Jury is out: Sex addiction is a concept that has significant controversy. Many would say that, untreated, the sex addict cannot form a relationship with the commitment that is generally accepted as part of true love. Many would also agree that counseling would better the chances of overcoming this condition and achieving patterns associated with love.
