Sexual Scenarios of Sex Addiction:
"I feel out of control. I am going into debt paying for sex. If I am not having sex, my mind is often preoccupied with when and how I will have my next sexual encounter. I love the control it affords me, but at the same time I know my constant ever changing sexual liaisons are not normal. I fear the rejection of a woman. This keeps me “safe.”
“I know that masturbating at work once to several times a day to pornography is probably not the norm, but I am careful and I lock my door. I have had a high sex drive since I was an adolescent and I am not bothering anybody. However, sometimes I wonder why I can’t wait until I go home and I feel kind of crazy.”
“I hunt for men on the on line dating services. I look at their picture and profile and set up a sexual scenario in my mind, like cat and mouse. The chase makes me feel so powerful and desired, yet the conquest often leaves me feeling empty. The cycle begins again. I am so proud of my big black book.”
“I didn’t think it would be a problem with my wife if I checked out virtual reality porn sites. It is a game with fictional characters, not really cheating and not real people. Over time with the virtual sex toys and the ability to create the scenes I was spending so much time on the computer and masturbating so frequently tremendous problems ensued not only with my wife but with my job.”
