The                               World Health Organization recognizes a severe                         form of compulsive sexual behavior as                                          "Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder." I have                            come to the  conclusion that "Sexual Addiction"                          is frequently  over applied to unwanted sexual                            behaviors and thoughts that are more effectively                        treated by other means and without the                                        addiction concept.
