Sex addiction crosses cultural, age and socio-economic boundaries

A sixty year old man from Tuscaloosa gives us a clear definition of what sex addiction is:

“You have a pleasure center in the back of your brain and when you’re masturbating those chemicals are being released in your pleasure center,” he said. “But what happens is pornography gets boring and your pleasure center wants more so you escalate from softcore porn to hardcore, from strip clubs to prostitution. It’s like starting on marijuana and then moving to crack cocaine so you can reach the same pleasure release you had the first time you got high. That’s why you get deeper and deeper into an addiction.” Sex Addiction Los Angeles
