Stories written from the heart by wives and husbands of Sex Addicts.
I received this story today from a woman whose husband is a Sex Addict and she also has two special needs children. H. would like your support and advice on dealing with this double burden.
It was January 17th and I had just spoken to my husband who was out of town on a business trip. As usual I just tossed my phone on our bed after we said our goodbye’s, never bothering to actually touch the “end” button on the call.
Ever since I met this man, I feel that my life was never the same….I feel that I am drowning in pain and with lots of anger. Since the beginning, I had other women involved in our marriage meaning he kept flirting and giving his number to them
Dear JoAnn, I would like to preface this by saying that I have yet to determine whether my husband is a sex addict with a compulsion to consume porn, surf escort sites, and sleep with prostitutes OR an entitled, narcissistic bastard who believes these behaviors are acceptable and deserved (by [...]
I met my husband 9 years ago. We married almost 6 years ago. During our first years of marriage I would find printed out pictures of women.
?I believe my husband may be a sex addict, but I may never know for sure. He refuses to talk to a counselor, or anyone for that matter. He completely isolates himself from other human beings...
For 15 years he has been struggling with this sex addiction. It started in college, when as a shy and immature boy he responded to an ad for a call girl that he found in the newspaper.
Note from JoAnn: I have searched through my archives for stories that I have not posted. Some of these, such as this one, were sent last year or the year before. With Sex Addiction, unfortunately, the stories are timeless and we can all gain from the experiences of each other [...]
Dear JoAnn, I'm not married nor going out with a s*x addict. But I am attracted to someone who I believe is a Sex Addict. He's a 2-year old work contact who in recent months has become a personal friend. We share a lot of common interests - we work [...]
It was a little cathartic writing this. Thank you. We met in 1991. At first all we did was talk. I was just out of a relationship that had ended badly and I wasn’t looking for anything but friendship. Over the course of six months we talked about everything, from politics to our beliefs about relationships. That ended and something else began when he asked me out on a date. I’m short and average looking. He’s tall and very attractive. I couldn’t believe he wanted to date me. We wound up moving in together. A few years later we moved to another state for his job. And then we moved again for his job. […]
Thank you so much for your website. I'm only a few weeks into finding out the truth about my husband's Sex Addiction, so I'm still in the shock phase. I met J a little over 2 years ago at a local hospital; he was a nurse and I was a [...]
I’m so glad to have found this website. My story is about how my husband has successfully managed his recovery from Sex Addiction, but the deep wounds that his addiction caused still remain. I have been married 8 years. Four years ago, my husband admitted to sleeping with prostitutes and strippers, as well as an enormous porn and sex chat addiction, during the first four years of our marriage, including during both of my pregnancies.
