“High rates of sex are extremely healthy. Sex improves people’s hearts and slims their waistlines. When couples are trying to conceive, they have to have lots of sex. Lots of women even use masturbation to help them sleep every night. Sometimes ‘too much’ sex is just what the doctor ordered.”

Now remember their is a big difference between sex addition and porn addiction. The vast majority of true sex addicts have many people they sleep with. In addition to having a spouse or other long-term partner, a sex addict may seek out sex with several anonymous strangers over the course of a week, month or year. Porn addicts, on the other hand, are often single. If they have partners, they often turn them down in favor of porn.
