Nymphomania Versus Female Sex Addiction

The Sexual Recovery Institute's Evening Intensive Program coming up September 7th

More and more of late, stories about female sexual addiction-and books by women writing their stories of sexual addiction-are circulating in mass media. You may have encountered such a story on your favorite online news aggregate or heard about a female sex addict from a friend. You may be one of these women yourself.

Sexual addiction is no longer strictly the territory of the Tiger Woodses and Bill Clintons of the world. Women are confessing their difficulty with sexual compulsivity and bravely unveiling the heretofore private dysfunctions such addictive behaviors have wrought upon their lives.

Memoir of a Female Sex and Relationship Addict

Addiction is a disease that does not discriminate based on race, gender, social status, religion, or lack thereof.

I am a recovering sex and relationship addict. I didn't know this about myself for years, but I knew something was fundamentally wrong.


The next Two-Week Intensive Treatment Program begins October 22nd!

The SRI Two-Week Intensive Programs is a two-week education and therapy curriculum focused on helping our patients identify and eliminate all sexual acting out behavior and develop the tools needed to prevent sexual relapse.

Less costly and time consuming than a 4-6 week hospital or residential treatment, the Two-Week Intensive Programs offers many similar benefits, including spousal involvement, structured social support, psycho-education and daily individual therapy.
