Tackling the intimacy disorder aspects of the sex addict psyche is fundamental to lasting recovery from sex addiction.
“Sex and disability, disability and sex; the two words may seem incompatible,” Michael A.
Intimacy is an essential part of love relationships.
It is the ability to share all parts of ourselves (our thoughts, our bodies, our feelings), to be vulnerable, and to be honest about what is going on inside of us.
It is more than just bad choices, poor judgment or a lack of adequate information.
It is a deeper problem and that is why it is termed and intimacy .
Many addicts feel they are having satisfying sex with their partners when in fact they are not really able to be present.
Rembis wrote in his 2009 paper on the social model of disabled sexuality.
Though roughly 15% of adults around the world (that’s nearly one billion people), and over 20 million adults in the U. between the ages of 18 and 64 have a disability, when it comes to disability and sex, there’s a disconnect.
because people who are sex addicts do not know how to relate in an intimate (close) relationship in an open and comfortable way.
Not only are sex and intimacy detached from one another they are not even in the same neighborhood.
