What About Sex Addiction?

Posted On: May 2, 2018

Whenever we talk about masturbation, there is always the question on whether it is addictive that follows. On the occasion of Masturbation Month, these are two previously released videos which I co-created with renowned sexologist and colleague Dr Roger Libby which I am resharing here.

1. Interview Dr Roger Libby: What is Sex Addiction?

Sex Therapist Dr. Roger Libby demystifies what sex addiction is and how one can get the right support instead.

 2. Sex Addiction is not a Diagnosis with Dr Roger Libby

Episode 121: Sex Addiction is not a Diagnosis with Dr Roger Libby. There is no proven support for either sex addiction or hypersexuality. These are phony concepts which are used in sex negative ways. This does not mean some people are not out of balance or OCD (Obsessive–compulsive disorder). CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy) is the most effective way to deal with imbalances. Sex addiction clinics overcharge for a condition that does not exist. Both the DSM and Aasect have soundly rejected both concepts. Unfortunately AAMFT still supports these harmful concepts.

About Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and has most recently completed her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling. In practice for more than seven years, she is the only certified sexuality educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.

Often cited in the local media, Dr. Lee is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore, and Men’s Health Malaysia. She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She is the host of weekly radio show Eros Evolution on the OMTimes Radio Network.  She has published three books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic Yoga and From Princess to Queen.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
