Prompted by When Your Only Tool is a Hammer... in the blog. 

Does it exist?  Is it merely a moral observation?

So....  what was your score?   Grin

I think the term "sexual addiction" is a bit of a hyped up phrase.

But yes, I think it exists.

I don't know that this screening test would really be accurate though.  I think the pursuit of sexuality can either add to one's life and sense of well-being, or it can take away from it.  That should be the measurement, in my opinion.

Well, I took it. I am not a sex addict, but I am a woman who struggles with sexually complusive behavior.   Shocked

Gee,  I didn't need a test to tell me that.  I have always had a very hard time saying NO to sex with a hot guy.  Roll Eyes

And even now, it's kinda like, OK, Sex, or clean the house.  I always choose hot, hang me from the ceiling sex!  I would much rather stay in bed all afternoon, than do all the things that I am supposed to be doing. 

Glad L feels the same way. 

And Bluesguy, yea I agree with you, if the libido's are mismatched than there is a problem.

I do though also believe that there is such a thing as sex addiction.  It is when A person can all the hot sex at home that they want, but choose to keep looking for it elsewhere because of the sexual excitment that it brings them.  They need the rush it brings them.  I actually know a man with this problem.

Me too -

A profile consistent with women who struggle with sexually compulsive behavior
Preoccupation: obsessive thinking about sexual behavior, opportunities, and fantasies


Okay, so let me see if I have this right ...

I'm sixty two friggin years old, forced celibate for more than 15 years and severely under-loved for my entire life before that and now that I have willing and very loving and able partner who omg makes me crazy in bed,

and they're telling me I'm "sexually compulsive and preoccupied"?

Hell, I could-a told them THAT.

The really good news is that while I scored ONLY a 5, GF scored a 10. Now, tell me - am I lucky or just what?

Braggart.

Actually and no kidding ...

I haven't read anything from any of us that would indicate a "problem".

The way I see myself (and my partner) is that we're normal people who have done without for most of our lives.

What would one expect?

Ain't likely I'll demurely cross my legs and eyes downcast, murmur, "Oh no thanks, I got laid last year".

My very serious and very real question is - How have any of us stayed sane?

I got a 5...which I assume is fairly run-of-the-mill.  It didn't really tell me much I didn't already know, though!

I think we should view the concept as an opportunity...

Too bad I can't figure out just what the heck it is.

It's a boob.  Pointing to the left.  And an arm.  And a leg, knee upraised.  And another arm.  Cheesy
