Sex Addiction

A psychological ploy to confuse

Opinions vary and experts disagree as to what sex addiction is.

The term ‘drug’ as we know it generally refers to classes of organic and inorganic chemical compounds and preparations designed to have a specific effect on the body / mind of an individual.
