This book is addressed to anyone with a lack of sexual self-control who feels their behavior is interfering with their relationship, job, and reputation.
Some people use sex to medicate their feelings and to cope with stress much in the same way as others would use alcohol or drugs. Lack of sexual self-control can manifest itself in the form of excessive use of porn sites, phone sex, and strip bars; it can lead to multiple infidelities, risky sexual behavior, bankruptcy, or the loss of a job due to their out-of-control behaviors. Rooted in shame and low self-esteem, these sexual activities afford the sex addict little pleasure and rarely result in intimacy or emotional connection. This book is addressed to anyone with a lack of sexual self-control who feels their behavior is interfering with their relationship, job, and reputation.
