    im not sure if i just really like sex or am i stepping into addict territory. the only thing that keeps me grounded is work so i can sustain my lifestyle. so would that make me a functioning sex addict? also to all the ladies & gents if you're an addict when did you realize it?

    Yes I am. Sex controls almost all of my "free" time. I often don't get work done because of sex

    Last year a FB of mine accused me of being a sex addict. He is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and was very involved with AA so, I believe that he thinks EVERYONE is addicted to something.

    I took the test and proved to him that I am not a sex addict but did admit to using dick as a drug at times. Hence, my screen name. Almost anything can be overused or misused: food, shopping, gambling, etc.... and even sex.

    Are you going to seek help?

    I wonder if sex addiction groups function as some AA groups do? At times AA helped my FB but just as many times he was meeting people there who were hooking him up with drugs.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    That test says I'm a sex addict, funny I don't feel like one. Then again I do have a name that says Screwsalot.

    I got a score of 7, which is exactly the point where non-addicts and addicts meet. Nice. I know sex is very important to me, but I don't feel I am controlled by it.

    Well, that's not good and you obviously sound distressed about the situation. It would be helpful to hear from LPSG members who have actually sought help for this problem.

    I know I am more cynical than most but, I worry about a "group" type setting where you may be in a room full of other people eager to feed your addiction as well as their own. Perhaps a personal counselor who specializes in sex addiction?

    I think that this sex addition is a load of bs. It doesn't help to put people into lousy catagories because they enjoy something so human. Why not go after those people who habitually dress their dogs like people?

    Sex is a hobby. Some guys mess around with their model trains too much.

    I like sex too much.

    The beauty is: I cum, I can get back to concentrating on other stuff. Guys with model trains never stop.

    I define addiction as something that interferes with day to day functioning. My passion for sex affects my day to day function, but does not interfere.

    My first wife thought I was a sick bastard and had me see a shrink for my benefit. For the longest time she made me feel embarassed for feeling the way I do. It took a long time and lots of therapy, but I finally figured out the problem was her, not sex. She was extremely frigid.

    I've had partners since her who've thought I had a healthy sex drive in the beginning of the relationship. Problem for them is, my drive never abates.

    I cannot say if one is or is not a sex addict that is something that only you can determine but here are some resources if you feel that you might be or decide if you are. Also, for more resources please consider joining the new social group I created entitled Support Groups. http://www.lpsg.com/groups/1150-support+groups. It is a moderated and private group that anyone can join and post to. It promised to be chocked full of resources.
