Sex addiction goes by many names, such as compulsive sexual behaviour, nymphomania, and hypersexuality. Some individuals affected by sex addiction develop compulsive behaviours or thought patterns associated with the sexual practices that are usually shared by consenting adults. Other sex addicts develop compulsive patterns linked to less common behaviours or thoughts that may or may not violate laws or socially accepted standards.
