    People don't always need drugs to get high or alcohol to get a buzz. A lot of people say it doesn't exist, but where do you draw the line between addiction and healthy indulgence anyway?

    i wouldnt know the exact border, i dont think there is a clear one. but i would think when you are obsessed with something that it becomes harmful and you neglect alot of things for it, then it should be addressed. But that being said, sex is fun and its preferable over drugs as an addiction. good exercise too!

    When it dominates and forces or convinces you to compromise your life in various ways that negatively affect you. Or cause you to not be able to feel happy without it, which starts that cycle of you just "getting" whatever you can from whereever you can so you can get that buzz.
    When you want sex from your partner instead of wanting to see them smile. When you need sex that you fuck anything or anyone regardless of the consequences. When you stop doing the things you normally do to fall into it. Basically, it's just like any other addiction.
    Anyhow, sex should amplify your life. Be it with a stranger, or someone you care about. It shouldn't be done in a way that causes you to feel negative. SOmetimes people use it as a way to rectify their feelings to a neutral or semi positive state. Idk if that's really a great idea tbh, but however it goes. Using someone is the absolute No.

    Of course sex addiction exists. Like SBlake said, it's perfectly fine as long as it doesn't negatively impact your life or the lives of others. Also like Cpt-Fantastic says, there are worse things you could be addicted to... sex and masturbation themselves are perfectly healthy, provided that you don't have a heart condition and you're not having unprotected sex with people who might be carrying an STD. There is no official "line", really... some people have naturally high libidos, some people are asexual. It's not like there's a set number of orgasms per week to define what's "normal". And keep in mind that unlike drugs and alcohol, sex is a normal biological function. Better to compare it to food. Can a person be addicted to food? Of course... but you've still got to eat. Common sense should tell you when it's time to draw the line and cut back when you realize either one taking a toll on your life, your health, and your relationships with others.

    Sex addiction isn't a couple who likes having sex very often. Sex addiction is a person who actively seeks out sexual partners to fulfill his/her sexual desires. It's a compulsive behaviour like gambling addiction and it negatively affects a person's life. A guy who pays prostitutes for sex every night or so, could be considered a sex addict.
