We deal with sex addiction, pornography addictions, and other sexual problems every day. To recognize what an addiction is and how it affects people, it’s important to understand what healthy sexuality is. Let’s take a look at some of the hallmarks of a healthy sex life.

It Makes You Feel Good

Sex is meant to feel good. It’s a natural part of nearly everyone’s life, and most people’s biology and psyches allow them to have a positive experience. Sex should always be consensual so that both partners are getting as much out of it as each wishes to.

If sex is making you guilty, there’s a good chance that something is wrong. It could be due to sexual addiction that’s making you feel bad about your promiscuity. It could also be that you need therapy for sexual addiction.

It Enhances Your Romantic Relationships

Sex is meant to be a connecting act between people. The need for it can be mostly physical, or it can be mostly emotional. If you are in a long-term relationship, sex should be something that draws you closer.

If any aspect of sex is pushing you apart, it’s time to talk to someone. If you are cheating even though it’s destroying relationships you’d like to foster, look into sex addiction rehab as offered by our Conshohocken and Bethlehem offices.

It Doesn’t Harm Your Life

A healthy sexual life will not affect your job. It also won’t affect the time you spend with family and friends.

People who have an addiction to pornography often want to stay in and view porn rather than go out and have fun with friends. Others might miss work because of sexual addiction or pornography addiction. Treatment in these circumstances is very important.

If you don’t feel that your sex life is everything you want due to an addiction, be sure to contact us as soon as possible. We can help!
