My bf called me a sex addict because im always looking up new toys to want and get from this site and it made me think of something a friend told me a long time ago. She told me that i would become a sex addict by the way i am. Now i dont have sex alot (for certain reasons that o wont go into) but i am crazy for this site and its toys. ~TO THE POINT~ Just how many of you out there are addicted to sex or the thought of it?
First of all your poll is flawed with a lack of understanding about sexual addiction. Sexual addiction isn't about an obsessive need for sex, it is a deep shame-filled need to punish ones self and rooted in deep emotional anguish. Looking at a sex site doesn't make you an addict anymore than sitting in a bar drinking a coke makes you an alcoholic.
If you are using EF as an escape from your responsibilities or a way to shame yourself then you might have a problem. If you simply enjoy looking at the toys and choosing which ones you want to try next you are a customer with a healthy appreciation for sexual pleasure...or at least sex toys.
This site is built to be fun and exciting just because you appreciate the hard work and like to be here doesn't mean anything is wrong with you.
Now why your friends would decide for themselves you are in danger of sexual addiction makes me wonder. But trust me, a sex addict isn't obsessing over toys and not having sex often...a sex addict is looking for their next sexual conquest when they are fighting the self loathing they live with every day.
Thinking about sex is a human thing regardless of what people might tell you. It's not addictive until it is no longer something you can willingly turn your focus away from.
