  • 1Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33314, USA.


Sexual addiction has received increasing attention in the past decade. We review existing literature on (a) competing conceptualizations of this syndrome as constituting an addictive, obsessive-compulsive, or impulse control disorder; (b) symptomatology and progression; (c) etiological models; and (d) treatment approaches. Based on this review, we conclude by identifying questions requiring resolution via empirical investigation.
