10. Compulsive Sexuality
Some people have difficulty controlling their sexual urges and their temper. This lack of control can interrupt healthy personal and relational functioning. As an adult, you are responsible for maintaining control over your actions and feelings. Counseling may help you if you feel you are no longer able to effectively manage yourself. Sometimes people use sex and masturbation as coping strategies to escape from problems or stressors. They become so reliant on sexual interactions that they begin to feel they NEED this to get through the day. For some people it is excessive use of prostitutes or strip clubs, for others it is abnormal amounts of masturbation, some people spend their whole paycheck on phone sex – the list goes one. However if you notice that you seem to be over-dependant on sexual interactions or you feel out of control than you might want to seek therapeutic consolation.
