The FDP board is realy the only one fit for this topic. My best suggestion would be to try posting some and see if that can get some momentum going on that board. It used to be very active. It could just be a "summer slump".

I have been a sex addict without being aware. I just thought I had been suffering from and over active sex drive brought on my a late start. But after coming out of a relationship with a woman who was a sex addict as well. I went through a long period of denial. I since then learned that I have been in many more relationships that were based on the same need affection. I believed that I could have love if I was a excellent lover or sex partner. This was wrong thinking. I did have sex that often but when I found the right woman-who was willing to have sex with me all the time and every way that could be imagined. I would feed on it seeking that high. The problem is that it didn't last so I had to do it over and over. I don't wish this on any body. But, I am seeking to understand why and I am taking steps to fight the need.

I am not ready to come out of the closet, sorta speak and attend the sex addict groups.

But I think that you may need to seek out one of these groups for support for yourself.
