People who are addicted to sex
Excessive engagement in prostitution, pornography, phone and chat room sex, exhibitionism, voyeurism and compulsive masturbation - such behaviours may point to sexual addiction. In this book, Joanne Brodie pulls away the blankets to uncover the hidden reality of a condition that has become prevalent in our increasingly sexualised society. The author's frank observations and shrewd insights are based on compelling case studies and years of experience as a counsellor for the afflicted, as well as her own struggle with sex addiction. In her wry tone, and with quirky humour, she deflates several myths surrounding sexual addiction, identifies behavioural patterns associated with it and, ultimately, advises on the steps to healing.
