1-Many men have found themselves in the trap of sexual compulsivity. The toll of sexual addiction for the individual, spouse and family often leads to arguments, depression, separation, divorce, loss of income, and even legal problems. Many men have tried to stop their damaging sexual behaviors, on their own, or through an untrained therapist, without success. Broken promises to themselves and their spouse/partner is the norm. The shame of not being able to stop addictive sexual acting-out behaviors often leads the addict to blame their spouse/partner, job, and other situations for their behaviors.
