Although recent studies indicate that biochemical and genetic factors exist in the development of sexual addiction, numerous families are associated with variables related to its development. Sex families often come from families where the emotional environment of anger or hostility is present. It tends to be at least one parent who is emotionally inaccessible and rules and interactions tend to be constantly changing with chaos and unpredictable rule. There is often a family background of sex addiction or some other addiction. When it is not obvious sexual addiction, often the story of parents is a matter of concern. Adults who look back at their native families often find it difficult to diagnose the disturbance and may not be aware of sexual or addiction to their parents. Or they may have heard of some unclear rumors of the family.
Children may also be exposed to inappropriate sexual images in the face of pornography or adult monitoring. For sexual dependence, it is often a story of being sexually canceled in some way or another. This could include physical sexual abuse that you usually think of when sexual abuse is mentioned, or it may include emotional or verbal relationships with a significant adult person (ie sexual intuition).
Many people with sexual addiction find out that they have played out unresolved issues from their children. When a child does not have his needs fulfilled the way they need to be met, they tend to recreate the same human activity in their adult relationships. They try to solve relationship problems in adulthood that they could not solve in childhood. This does not work in adulthood either. The child's caregiver could not meet the child's needs due to faults or problems in his own way, not because the child did or did not. Stubbornness and / or clutter and emotional unavailability are frequent parenting symptoms.
Children find ways to calm themselves. When one's emotional needs are not met, finding ways to feel better, at least for a short time. Toddlers discover that it is good to rub themselves and can sometime be using masturbation over time.
While there is an infinitely diverse sexual behavior that sexual addicts could participate in and may choose, obsessive suicide is a common denominator. Later in life, when someone finds that their sexual behavior causes problems in their lives and they seek to prevent sexual behavior, they often try to hang on the possibility of masturbation – the old state. The excitement and release of sexual activity is "drug abuse", not just the behavior that is identified as the problem (ie voyeurism, infidelity, etc.).
Initially, the sex is simply a pleasure. Then it is used to relieve pain such as anxiety, loneliness, grief, etc. Sometimes it becomes "painkillers" of your choice. There are many parallels between drugs and sexual drugs. One is sexual activity that can cause "high" to compete with external emotions that change the drug. The addict is chasing it "high".
Sexual addiction, persistent over time with the help of "denial". Just like alcoholism / drugs, the "problem" is defined as other than sexual behavior. People try for years to solve the problem that has been wrongly diagnosed. Just like alcoholism / drugs, typical denial methods include: optimization, ideology, direct denial, accusations, projection, minimization and others.
