Are there certain symptoms of sex addiction in men? Can sex addiction symptoms in men differ from sex addiction symptoms in general? The answer is simple yet complicated. Here are three possible sex addiction symptoms in men that will help give you the information you’re looking for.
Sex Addiction Symptoms in Men #1: You see other people as sex objects rather than people.
When you encounter people – the kind of people you might be attracted to sexually – out in the real world, whether it’s at the store or a shop or on the street, do you see people? Or do you just see a collection of body parts that you can use for your physical pleasure? If it’s the latter, you may have sex addiction.
Sex Addiction Symptoms in Men #2: You feel like you can stop anytime you want to – you just don’t want to.
So you have lots of sex – and you think to yourself, “This probably isn’t good, but I can stop anytime I want to stop.” And then you keep doing it, because you kind of don’t want to stop right now. Maybe tomorrow, but not now. This kind of thinking is prevalent in sex addiction in men.
Sex Addiction Symptoms in Men #3: You keep hooking up even though you kind of don’t want to anymore.
This is the opposite of the last one. Instead of doing it because you want to, this feels like you don’t want to keep engaging in sex but you feel like you have to. You don’t know why you keep doing it, and you wish you wouldn’t, but you just can’t stop.
These three are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to sex addiction symptoms in men. For a more complete understanding of whether you have sex addiction or not, take this simple and free test. Then check out these resources to help you overcome.
