Singapore’s site of the Sex shows “Love Addicts Anonymous”, a programme of recovery from sex and love addiction.
In this regard, the self-confessed sex addict is talking about when the urge hits her, while, she has to fulfil it, one way or another. The 37-year-old woman is twice divorced and she was fired from her last job after an indiscretion was exposed. It took Ms Chew almost two years before she found another job early this year. But, the slightly plump woman was unwilling to go into details about her new job.
It’s based on the principles of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, a model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous. Now, she has paid a price for her addiction.
Some of the questions designed to be used as tools to identify possible signs of sex and love addiction include: Have you ever tried to control how much sex to have or how often you would see someone? Do you feel that you don’t want anyone to know about your sexual or romantic activities? Have you had sex at inappropriate times, in inappropriate places or with inappropriate people? Have you ever felt that you had to have sex?
Do you keep a list, written or otherwise, of the number of partners you’ve had?
Do you feel despair or uneasiness when you are away from your love or sexual partner?
Have you ever had a serious relationship threatened or destroyed because of outside sexual activity?
