Sex Addiction // Dr. Kate Balestrieri on Carnal Theory

A question covered in debate: Does compulsive sexual behavior exist?

Whether you agree that it exists or not, today we're exploring the debate around sex addiction in a fascinating conversation with Licensed Psychologist and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Dr. Kate Balestrieri.

Trigger Warning: We discuss compulsive sexual behavior (sex addiction) in this episode. If you or a loved one have or are experiencing compulsive sexual behavior please seek the guidance of a licensed professional. We do discuss solutions and services to help in this episode, but this is meant to be informational-not definitive for your specific situation.

We hope you enjoy this dive into the debate around sex addiction, and think further upon Kate's theory as we look at causes, how to get help and if there's anything that could be done to stop or minimize cases of sex addiction (hint: there is).

Follow Kate at @drkatebalestrieri and her incredible organization @themodernintimacy.
