Sexual addiction is a psychological condition in which an individual has an inability in managing his or her sexual behavior. Some sexologists prefer to call the condition sexual dependency or sexual compulsivity. The existence of the condition is not universally accepted and its etiology, nature and validity is the subject of continuing debate.
Proponents of the concept have offered varying descriptions and models of the putative condition. Some proponents offer an addiction model, which they define by analogy to substance addiction; while others offer lack-of-control models, which refer to it as “sexual compulsivity” and offer definitions based on obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
With all of the hype surrounding the Tiger Woods affairs subsiding, or re focused on other well known persons, I would like to jump in really quick to pose the following question.
After his divorce from Elin Nordegren, does Tiger and encounters with his list of old and perhaps even some new flames call for public scrutiny for his supposed sexual addition and need for therapy, or does sexual addition only apply to males in a committed monogamous relationship, with the primary one being wedlock?
A different perspective to consider.
