          Quiz: Are You a Sex Addict?

          July 12, 2005

          Sexual addiction comes in many different forms. The range of behaviors can include masturbation, pornography, prostitution, and/or sexual exploitation of others.

          Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of the Dr. Phil Advisory Board, suggests you ask yourself the following questions to gauge if you have a sexual addiction:

          • Do your thoughts about sex interfere with your family relationships? Do they cause disruption in communication? Do you hide them?
          • Do thoughts of sex interfere with your social life? Do they cause issues in how you relate to friends?
          • Do thoughts or images of sex cause disruptions in your work life, such as distractions, loss of concentration, or even supervisory or peer relations (often related to sexual harassment)?
          • Do you hide or lie about your activities relating to sex (porn, prostitution, promiscuity, etc)?

           

          If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, it may denote a sexual addiction.

          The results of this quiz cannot substitute for a full evaluation by a healthcare professional, and should only be used as a guide to understanding sexual addiction and its potential health issues.
