Out of the Shadows
Now updated to include the latest research on cybersex addiction, this pioneering work carefully guides readers through an examination of the tangled web of love, addictive sex, hate and fear. Out of the Shadows defines and addresses sexual addiction in terms of behaviour, cultural standards, legal consequences, the victim's perspective and public opinion. It also offers detailed descriptions of the four stages of sexual addiction: preoccupation, ritualization, compulsive behaviour and despair. This book is required reading for all sex addicts looking to find a healthier way to deal with their compulsions.
