Sex Addiction Counseling for Gay Individuals

Sex addiction is an underestimated problem in the gay community. Because of the stigmas associated with sexual orientation, it can be difficult to identify sex addictions if you’re a gay man. As a Dallas gay therapist who is part of the community, I understand the stigmas that make sexual addiction a challenging topic to address. Whether it be porn addiction, cybersex addiction, or an addiction to anonymous sex, I can help. I understand various issues that are legitimate concerns to many gay men who are concerned about their sexual behavior. I understand that:

  • Pornography viewing does not mean that you are a porn addict.
  • Being a part of an open relationship doesn’t mean that you are a sex addict.
  • Using applications such as Grindr, Scruff, and websites such as Manhunt doesn’t mean that you’re a sex addict.
  • True sex addiction is about other dynamics that didn’t necessarily originate in sexual behavior.
  • Cheating doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a sex addict.

With my specialized sex addiction training, and my experience working with many gay men who are dealing with problems related to sex addiction, I know that this is a real problem for many gay men. I also understand that deciding whether or not to seek out help for this problem is extremely intimidating. Together, we will assess the problem to determine if your behavior is related to a sex addiction or not. No matter what, we will identify the problems in your relationship and life and come up with a plan how to overcome these problems.

You may have a problem with a sexually addictive behavior if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Loss of time relating to near constant use of phone applications such as Grindr and Scruff.
  • Lying to your partner about your sexual behavior.
  • Putting off responsibilities due to a viewing of pornography.
  • Avoidance of sexual intimacy with your partner.
  • Risking losing your job or having legal problems because of your sexual behavior.

No matter if you are dealing with sexual addiction, porn addiction, cybersex addiction, sexual anorexia, or you are unsure if your sexual behavior is a problem, I can help. Don’t wait to risk losing what you hold most important to you. Contact me today to start your recovery.
