Sex addicts are typically referred to as individuals with “compulsive sexual behavior disorder” (CSBD) in the clinical context. The term “compulsive sexual behavior disorder” is used by the World Health Organization in its International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). This designation underscores the compulsive nature of the behavior rather than focusing solely on the aspect of addiction.
However, in more informal settings or in discussions outside of the clinical environment, the terms “sex addict” or “sexual addict” are commonly used. It’s important to approach this topic with sensitivity and avoid using stigmatizing or derogatory terms.
