- Engaging in random sex affairs or ongoing relationships that become destructive to the health and well being of one’s self and others.
- Attempting to stop self-destructive obsessions and behaviors, ( i.e., phone sex, strip clubs, massage parlors, pornography, prostitutes, anonymous sex), but failing to do so, despite the risks or consequences.
- Internet cruising for sexual material or anonymous conversation that causes a negative disruption of everyday life.
- Increasing sexual and romantic activities because current level is no longer satisfying.
- Experiencing mood swings created by the obsessive/compulsive pattern.
- Spending a great deal of time obtaining, involved in, or recovering from sexual or romantic behavior.
