Can sex be addictive?

Introduction

A strong and persistent cross-gender identification (not merely a desire for any perceived cultural advantages or being the other sex).  The criteria sets between two to five possible under the heading. (2) In boys, preference for cross-dressing or simulating female attire. (3) Strong and persistence preferences for cross-sex roles in make-believe play or persistence fantasies or being the other sex. (C) The disturbance is not concurrent with a physical intersex condition. (D) The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. Sexually Attracted to Females. Males with Gender Identity Disorder include substantial proportions with all specifiers.  Males attracted to females  are usually report their gender dysphoria beginning in early to mid-adulthood. In the presence of a normal physical examination, karyotyping for sex chromosomes and sex hormone assays are usually not indicated. Psychological testing may reveal cross-gender identification or behavior patterns. There are no significance physical examination findings in children. The only thing that is normal in individuals with Gender Identity Disorder is that they have normal genitalia. In child clinic samples, boys with this Gender Identity Disorder are referred for evaluation much more frequently than are girls.

There are no recent epidemiological studies to provide data on prevalence of Gender Identity Disorder for children as of yet. For clinically referred children, onset of cross-gender interests and activities is usually between ages 2 and 4 years, and some parents report that their child has always had cross-gender interests. Typically, children are referred around the time of school entry because of parental concern that what they regarded as a “phase” does not appear to be passing. Most children with Gender Identity Disorder display less overt cross-gender behaviors with time, parental interventions, or response from peers. In the other course, the more overt signs of cross-gender identification appear later and more gradually, with a clinical presentation of other medical conditions.

Sexual Addiction

According to the DSM-IV-TR (2000), the criteria sets between two to five possible under the heading. (2) In boys, preference for cross-dressing or simulating female attire. (3) Strong and persistence preferences for cross-sex roles in make-believe play or persistence fantasies or being the other sex. (C) The disturbance is not concurrent with a physical intersex condition. (D) The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. This is to say that whether a person decides to have sex with a certain person of choice, but also decides to have sex with a least preferred person of choice (i.e. same sex or opposite sex). This person will create a schedule to have sex with both persons of choice in case the preferred individual cannot fulfill the need due to whether the reasons this preferred individual do not want to provide the need of sex. Then, this person may grow negative mood, upsetting, or disappointed and turn to the least person of choice to have sex in order to fulfill the need. This is how addictive this person has of sex. A perspective to the behavior toward sex favors may take a toll on its autonomy and to the society as it looks as if this person cannot control its urge of need to have sex with someone. Thus, this person will be perceived that he or she will not be able to respect to the preferred one for as long as the preferred one allow it to happen. The understanding between partners may be enriching but the understanding between sex addiction and multiple partners may be downright disgusting by the society period.

 

The Meaning of Love

Three structural model of love, in terms of set of feelings derived from love in scope that explicitly demonstrated Spearmanian theory and Thurstonian theory and Thomsonian Model on love experiences. Each structural model of love might conceptualized an emerged view on partly on the disintegrated of unity which is to experience this glob of highly positive feelings; to tend to co-occur in certain close relationships; to increase the strength of the love. In general, the intimacy component (emotional investment) and the passion component (motivational involvement) and the decision/commitment component( cognitive decision in and commitment) relationships are viewed as the intimacy component might be viewed as a “warm” one, the passion component as a “hot” one, and the decision/commitment component as a “cold” one (Sternberg, 1986). Thomsonian Model of bonds of intelligence that is highly considered on the labeling of love as to what is defined the bondage within a relationship in general which is also commonly illustrated around the globe. Lee’s (1973/1976) theory is best supported by research, He theorized the 6 basic love styles: eros (passionate love); ludus (game-playing love); storge (friendship love); pragma (logical, “shopping list” love); mania (possessive, dependent love); and agape (all-giving, selfless love which identifies significant relationships that were found between love attitudes and several background variables, including gender, ethnicity, previous love experiences, current love status, and self-esteem (Hendrick, et. al., 1986).

Needlessly to say, that sex can be very addictive because of the Gender Identity Disorder have shared its symptoms that can be nuisance for some people while others look at it as it is normal behavior. Literally, no matter what type of mental disorder a person has, it cannot dispose his or her desire to solute the urge that is being depicted from the hormones from the body. However, the matter is how much or how many times a person should have sex is a question that is up to a person.
