Addicted to sex

Earlier this week, I received an email about a new class that was going to be offered during the fall 2006 semester titled, “Sex and Addiction.” Of course, I had to sign up, especially when I read that the course will include:

a mixture of discussion, lecture and experiential content for this course which will focus on:

  • The effects of drugs on sexuality and relationships
  • The effects of sexuality and relationships on addiction and relapse
  • Sexual addiction: definition, causes, levels, relationships with drug use
  • The core issues that are usually shared among people addicted to sex, drugs or relationships
  • The addictive nature of some relationships

Good stuff, no?
