E-collection 'Sexual Addiction (including Cybersex Addiction)'

Sexual addiction, also known as sex addiction, is a state characterized by compulsive participation or engagement in sexual activity, particularly sexual intercourse, despite negative consequences. There is considerable debate among the medical community on the validity of this diagnosis, and currently sexual addiction (or cybersex addiction) is not a clinical diagnosis in either the DSM or ICD medical classifications of diseases and medical disorders.
