    Are you a sex addict? - CNN.com

    Is anyone here not a sex addict?

    1. You lie

    For Parker, the sex addiction counselor, this is the No. 1 way you know you've crossed the line: when you make up stories to get sex.

    "If you lie with women to get them to have sex with you, you're a predator and an addict," he says.

    2. Sex consumes you

    If your interest in sex runs your life, you have a problem, says Robert Weiss, a social worker and founder of the Sexual Recovery Institute. He says addicts "are always preoccupied with hitting on someone, or picking someone up, or getting home to look at porn before their spouse comes home."

    3. You're "divorced, dead, fired or arrested"

    If you continue your sexual activities even under threat of being "divorced, dead, fired or arrested," you're an addict, Parker says.

    "They ignore the consequences," Weiss adds. "They say, 'I could really screw up myself here, but I'm going to continue to do it.' "

    4. You have an intense interest in pornography

    "The pornography piece of this cannot be overstated," Parker says. "Show me a guy who's having sex with three women in one week, and I promise you he has a relationship with pornography."

    5. You want to stop and you can't

    Sexual addiction is defined by a loss of control, Weiss says.

    I'll narrow it down to two signs:

    1. You're breathing.

    2. You're a male.

    And whats with the word "addict"? Such negative connotations. I prefer "aficionado" myself.

    Do you mean you can get laid without making up stories?

    There are two kinds of people in the therapy profession

    1. the people trying to cure your affliction.

    2. the people trying to invent new afflictions.

    Well, we can. But then, if you lack character and personality then, i suppose you might not be able to.

    If you are poor, you are a dog, if you have money, you are an sex addict.
