You Will Need
- Brutal honesty
Add it up
Calculate how many hours a day you think about sex, look at porn, pursue sex, and/or have sex. If it’s more than a few hours a day, you may have a problem.
Examine its impact
Examine the impact that sex is having on your life. If it has cost you your job, your significant other, and/or your last shred of dignity, it’s a problem.
Determine if your behavior is putting you at risk. Have you ever worried that a conquest might: a) be using you, b) give you a STD, or c) strangle you? If yes, is this an occasional worry or a daily concern?
Tally your sexual partners
Tally up your sexual partners. Signs of a problem—it’s over 100 and you’re neither a rock star nor a professional athlete.
Review your masturbatory habits
Review your masturbatory habits. Is a day without self-gratification like a day without sunshine?
Try to stop
See if you can go without sex for a week. If you fail, or if your self-denial ends in a three-day catch-up orgy, seek help.
