housands of e-mails come to us from men and women of all walks of life who struggle with addictions to pornography, masturbation, cybersex, and similar sexual practices.
We have seen many lives and families devastated by addictive sexual sins.
"People who are vulnerable can get hooked before they know it." To those who say a behavioral compulsion is not a true addiction, Dr.
Schneider responded with a definition of addiction that would clearly apply to cybersex abusers: "Loss of control, continuation of the behavior despite significant adverse consequences and preoccupation or obsession with obtaining the drug or pursuing the behavior." Although behavioral addictions involve no external drugs, preliminary research has suggested that they cause changes in brain chemicals, like the release of endorphins, that help to perpetuate the behavior.
If you suspect that you may have such an addiction, see our article, How can I tell if I'm getting addicted to sex or pornography?
This is definitely NOT safe for work (NSFW), but this interview with Bambi Woods (of Debbie Does Dallas fame) was fascinating (here is part two).
The actress who played her in the movie disappeared for more than 20 years, living in comfortable obscurity in Australia.
She never reveals her identity, but makes this offer: My family would KILL me if I gave any pictures out.
What I WOULD do is an audio interview (my husband suggested this) in person if the company involved agreed to donate a sizable amount to charity.
