In a new study, “hypersexual” brains don’t respond to sexual images the same way that drug addicts’ brains respond to images of drugs. Though it’s a popular …

It’s not just about a high libido. Completely disagree with your post.
12-step programs don’t work. They in fact, make it worse.
Could more than one brain system cause addictive behavior? This video seems
to assume that the answer is “no”.
no this study shows that sex addicts dont have the same brain process for
there addiction as drug addicts. This is another example of people taking
study out of there context.
this guy sounds and talks like fukin cenk uyghur from tyt, it’s oddly the
Do internet addicts salivate at the sight of a computer? No. Do video game
addicts salivate at the sight of a controller? No. But when people
literally die because they sit at their computer or their video game for
four days straight, that is undeniably addict behavior. Reducing the
problem of addiction to a mere autonomic response to visual stimuli
detracts from the serious nature of the condition and does harm to the
understanding of the public. This is highly irresponsible.
1 study showed something, therefore its the truth? People get addicted to
biting their nails or eating plastic or whatever, and don’t have the same
psychological makeup as an alcoholic.
So people who attend then sex addiction therapy things are either whores or
finally a study with some common sence.of course sex addiction dont
exist,its therapy bullshit to make more money off people.its all a scam.
This argument seems plausible to me. Even with porno there is a chase
element where you get to chose what you view next. And with sexual
addiction generally finding new people and high risk situations might
increase the thrill. I think the scientists (or the news since I haven’t
read the study) generalized the results of this study to a much greater
degree than is warranted..
The thing about hyper sexuality, is that it thrives in the “chase factor”
which a passive picture, or already seen video cannot offer, maybe there’s
where the flaw of this study lays, also, sometimes, an apple is not
squeezed the same way an orange is. So is either an addiction or you‘re
just demon possessed, take your pick : )
Am i way of in thinking that addiction is defined by biochemistry, that
drugs, sex, alcohol (ect.) makes your brain reward you – so you feel good?
It all seems to stem from same source ….
People confuse types of addiction. There are chemical addictions, like an
addiction to heroin – if you don’t use heroin you get horrible side
effects. But there are also mental addictions, like if someone is addicted
to gambling or sex, and when they break their addiction the side effects
are much less severe and stem from a mental anxiety of not doing the
activity they are accustomed to doing to make themselves feel good, rather
than an actual chemical imbalance caused by breaking the addiction
well they didn’t give the drug addicts ACTUAL drugs, and yet the addictive
part of their brain still lit up…
I wouldn’t take this study and conclude that people CAN’T be addicted to
sex. It’s just that sex addiction and drug addiction isn’t the same.
America (and the world) has its head up its ass about sex. if it weren’t
for sex you wouldn’t be here.
I’m curious to hear about people that say that they have a food
“addiction”. By your logic with a natural biological function cannot be a
addiction. So would an eating “addiction” rather be a disorder and what
differentiates the two?
Too many people are too ready to call a habit an addiction. You cannot
equate an ingrained behavior to a dependency on a chemical. One is a mental
crutch, the other is a physiologically measurable dependency. You can’t be
addicted to TV. You can’t be addicted to video games. You can’t be addicted
to shopping. You can’t be addicted to sex. You can’t be addicted to biting
your fingernails. Habitual behaviors do not fit the definition of
You are not the only person in the world. Not everyone responds to
habituation and dependence the same way. Just because you tried and failed
to inflict addiction upon yourself does not mean that others are not
susceptible to it.
Sex addiction isn’t really about sex. It’s more of a filling of an
emotional gap left from a traumatic experience, or maybe from a bad
relationship with a parent or guardian. I actually think sex addiction is
supposed to be like the need for contact with other people, and the most
effective way sex addicts get this contact is through sex. It’s the only
way they know how to have a relationship with other people due to a lack of
any other type of relationship they would have gotten from a parent.
Precisely! Sexual preferences are highly complex psychostructures. If you
aren’t showing them EXACTLY what they like, it isn’t a valid study. You
can’t tell me that a heroine addict isn’t a heroine addict simply because
they don’t salivate at the sight of marijuana.
12 step programs are just another way for religion to come into your life
and try to control you. Seriously, jesus isn’t going to help 99% of addicts
only a dedicated doctor or general good person can assist you in helping
If you seem to want ‘sex addiction’ to be a real condition, I ask, why? So
you can justify deviant sexual behavior (like cheating on a spouse/sig.
other) and have a fallback reason as you why you did/do it, perhaps? Or
maybe make yourself feel less guilty about the reason you are so
hypersexualized? But I’ve long thought that that ‘sex addiction’ was a
total cop out for horny bastards! And there is nothing wrong with being a
horny bastard…just be it and quit trying to defend it with science..
blogger Luke Ford on it, and they go super in-depth with his struggle with
“sex addiction” and you’ll see how fucked up and destructive that behaviour
can get. And sure, maybe it isn’t “real”. How fucking cares, his life is
imploding because of it, it’s real enough. And the thing about
self-policing is really the issue, most addicts can’t self-police until
they hit rock bottom. For Luke Ford that happened and treating his
condition as if it was an addiction has helped him.
