If you have ADHD, you are more than twice as prone to sex addiction than the normal population. And by some studies, as many as one in three males with ADHD struggle with compulsive sexual behavior.
According to the study Sexual Addiction and ADHD: Is there a Connection by Richard Blankenship and Mark Laaser: “Several telling parallels exist between persons with ADHD and those with sexual addiction. Both have stimulus-seeking brains, both gravitate toward high-risk behavior, and both have a low threshold for boredom.”
It’s important to assess for both ADHD and sex addiction at the same time and to treat sex addiction with an ADHD-informed lens.
