Betrayal and then some...

So gents
What would you do with a gal who is a Sexual Addict? A gal who HAS to sleep around to feel like she's validated to be pretty, not too fat or sexually attractive?

This is what I've lived with the last few years. At first I turned and thought nothing of the "white" lies, and lies by omission. But then I realized what was happening. Why? She can't lie well. She got caught in too many mistakes.

So Dudes. What would you do?

Unfortunately, you have very limited choices. There is a 12 step group (similar to AA) - I think it is called SLAA (Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous). She might want to contact this group.

Often, people are turned off by 12 step programs. In which case, just about the only other option with a high percentage of success is therapy. Typically, you will want a therapist who specializes in PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) because more times than not, the addictive behavior is rooted in some type of severe abuse (usually childhood sexual abuse). It is the abuse at an early age that causes the PTSD and the resulting maladaptive behavior.

I hope this helps.
