Abstract

Sex addiction has received substantial attention over the past decade and has been accepted by the World Health Organization as Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder in the forthcoming ICD-11. This chapter outlines etiology, existing controversies, measurement, and treatment approaches to helping individuals with sex addiction in clinical settings. Although a lot of research has helped researchers and practitioners better understand the associated characteristics of sex addiction, the field is still in its infancy and in need of further study.
