Some of these responses seem to suggest that sex addiction is the product of deprivation, but isn't that like saying a person in AA avoiding alcohol is more addicted than someone who is still in denial of their addiction? Generally, I find that you only really find out how addicted you are to something when you try to stop using it. I think that people who have regular sex in whatever way have developed a habit that is very hard to break. This is, I think, why so many monogamous breakups are immediately followed by rebound relationships instead of people taking some time to themselves and re-centering. Idk, though, are there people who can have sex regularly for a long period of time and then go without for an equally long period without feelings of withdrawal?
