Can you really be Addicted to Sex? An Exploration of Sex and Pornography Addiction

The question is no longer “can you be addicted to behaviors” but instead, “what can we do about behavioral addictions?” In this talk, attendees will learn about the basics of sex and pornography addiction, identify the hallmarks of addiction and possible consequences, understand how these potentially addictive behaviors affect the brain, and discover what treatment and recovery entails.
