Sex Addiction: Driven by Technology

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.

Renowned sex addiction therapist Robert Weiss says he initially noticed tech-related sexual issues in the early 1990s, when online bulletin boards and porn sites first hit the web. Prior to that, his clients were mostly hooked on real world sexuality—serial affairs, prostitutes, sex clubs and adult movie theaters, plus the occasional guy hooked on phone sex. Then, when home computers and ubiquitous Internet connections came along, Weiss says his clients were suddenly and primarily engaging in tech-driven sexuality. And this tech-sex trend continues unabated today, with digital era sex addicts hooked on digital pornography, virtual sex games, webcam sex, hookup apps, teledildonics, and whatever else R&D departments can dream up. As such, we must set and maintain healthy boundaries around our use of technology.
