Sexual addiction is a very complex disorder. While most people think sexual addiction is an out of control drive to have sex whenever possible, this is not always the case. In fact, there are many different aspects and kinds of sexual addiction, and it is not always "traditional."
Fantasy sex occurs when an individual is obsessed with fantasies that are sexual in nature. These fantasies allow the individual to remain detached from intimacy, or provide an escape from reality.
Anonymous sex addiction occurs when the addict is gratified by having sex with complete strangers. This can include one-night stands, prostitutes, or having sex with a variety of partners whose identities remain anonymous. With this type of addiction, once the anonymity is broken, the addict looses interest.
Exhibitionistic sex addiction involves an individual who is addicted to having sex or exposing themselves in public. The addict is aroused by the attention they receive, and enjoys the shocked reactions of those who they expose themselves to.
Voyeurism is a more common type of sex addiction, which involves spying on unknowing individuals. Part of the arousal for voyeurs is the secretive and exploitative nature of their activity.
Intrusive sex is a type of addiction that involves touching people in a sexual manner without consent. This may also include Frotteurism, which involves rubbing up against someone in public, often in crowded areas where the addict can go unnoticed or easily escape.
This list describes some, but not all of the many different types of "non-traditional" sexual addiction. If you believe you are suffering from one or more of these types of sex addiction, seek help!
