Is sex addiction really an addiction?

Yes, sex addiction is really an addiction. The best proof of that addiction is found in SPECT scans of sex addicts’ brains. Dr. Daniel Amen has the world’s largest collection of SPECT scans (you can find him online), and it’s fascinating to view SPECT scans of addicts of all types—including sex addicts scans—and see how similarly the brains look during active addiction.

Darrell Brazell, who is included on this site in the Books & Resources link External Resources has gotten Dr. Amen’s permission to include one of his SPECT scans of a sex addict’s brain, if you have trouble finding it elsewhere online.
