Relate can help if you are worried that your sexual activity is out of control.

It might help you to consider the if the following statements are familiar.  For example do you

  • Feel that the behaviour is out of control
  • Believe that there may be severe consequences if your continue but carry on any way.
  • Persistently pursue destructive high risk sexual activities, want to stop but are unable to do so.
  • Need more and more of the sexual activity in order to experience the same level of high followed by feelings of shame and depression.
  • Experience intense mood swings around repeated sexual activity.
  • Spend more and more time planning, engaging in or regretting and recovering from sexual activities.
  • Neglect social or work commitments in favour of the sexual activity.
  • Repeatedly try to stop and perhaps stay stopped for a while, only to start up again.

Many of the above may accurately reflect how you are feeling about what you do.  The important thing is to talk to someone if you are worried.  Our therapist can offer support and help people who recognise their activity is causing problems.  We can offer careful assessment and lots of discussion because Relate understands that this is a complex issue where many other factors could contribute to your experience of your difficulty.

Likewise if you are worried about a partner, you can speak to us in complete confidence.  Relate can help individuals or couples to explore the impact of out of control activities on their relationship and support each of them to find a way forward.

If you think that sex addiction may be an issue, tackling it on your own can feel very daunting and isolating so getting professional help may be a useful step.
