Product Description

Product Description

Like other psychiatric disorders, sexual addiction is a condition that affects peoples' relationships with others as much as it affects their own mental state. Individuals suffering from sexual addiction typically pursue sex through any means possible and often engage in risky forms of sexual activity such as exhibitionism, promiscuous sex with multiple partners, online sex, etc. It's easy to see how a couple's relationship may be challenged by the manifestations and reality of a disorder like this one. "A Couple's Guide to Sexual Addiction" discusses common relationship issues within the context of sexual addiction and provides the reader with exercises, information, and advice on the following topics: Trust; Communication; Healthy sexuality & sexual behaviors; and, Family. By understanding the reality of sexual addiction and what it means for a relationship, couples will be able to better relate to each other and plan for a successful future.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY INFORMATIVE 19 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book would be very informative and useful for both therapists and individuals as it gives a lot of information and informs understanding on this very complex and misunderstood subject. I would recommend this book to any therapists working with adult relationships and with 'Sexual Addiction'. It is well set out and easily understood with the theories it contains well explained It will give a new perspective and Paula has written a well thought out, clear, concise and jargon free book which is much needed in helping us further understand this increasing problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your relationship 26 Nov 2011
By reg guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot express how refreshing it was to see how the problems that I have been dealing with my entire life and for the 26 years that I have been married were so eloquently laid out in this book. When reading this book Paldron breaks down in practical terms what a sex addict is and all of the behaviors associated. Once she has done this Paldron clearly lays out what is needed to be done to put back or in my case create the foundations of a healthy and functional relationship. The book is written in practical and day to day terms and is not theoretical. Being a sex addict for my entire adult life and having a dysfunctional marriage I feel this book has helped me find something I never had which is love and intimacy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not like his first book... 15 April 2013
By Eric&Shauna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My husband WAS a porn/sex addict. He read George Collins first book ("breaking the Cycle") and called him for help through his counseling services. It changed our life and our marriage and I will always be grateful to Mr. Collins for having the courage to write his book. "Breaking the Cycle" and Compulsion Solutions did more than any "expert" or "professional" for us. They author as well as his counselors are REAL experts- they overcame their addiction. No degree can replace real life. In regards to the second book geared toward couples, I must be honest, I can tell his wife wrote most of the second book. To me, it's very wishy-washy and contradictory in parts...which is not AT ALL how the first book was. She is probably a nice lady and they both meant well in authoring this together, but she simply hasn't' lived through the hell. She gets the "cleaned up" version of George and the luxury to not be deeply offended by porn..all porn. She was not the one who had her heart ripped to pieces by him and then asked to "bear with him". I felt at times the second book was patronizing and I could spot from a mile away that she had never truly suffered from his previous sexual addiction. My proof for this theory actually came pretty quick, on page 10, when she says something to the effect of, "pornography is OK in normal and healthy relationship." That sentence broke my heart all over again. I ripped out that page and even threw the book away after I struggled to get through it. I think she undid alot of his work with that statement. Porn is not "victim-less". It's not a light-hearted tool to use in the bedroom. It has consequences. It hurts those viewing it and those in it. To condone it in a book that tries to undo porn's damage is simply idiotic. I hope that they revise this book and take out at least that ridiculous sentence/notion. (Ironically it is not included on the sample book preview on Amazon. I wonder why?) Perhaps they would also get some real input from wives of former addicts and put that in the "revised" book. This book was disappointing. I suggest readers (especially wives affected from this) buy the first book- that was beyond excellent and get "Boundaries" by Henry Cloud and Robert Townsend and Shelley Lubben's book "Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn". She was a former porn star. I think she would be saddened and insulted by his wife's "expert" statement.

By Sandra Einbinder - Published on Amazon.com

This book is a life saver for couples who have been lost in the misery and pain of sex addiction.
The real life stories of couples who have not only survived, but thrived, are inspirational. This book is warm,loving and full of valuable information. The tools offered are beautifully written and encouraging. I recommend this book to couples everywhere who are in need of guidance and just plain help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Tool 1 Sep 2012
By S. Hall-Whitney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Trying to put Humpty Dumpty together again is how I can best describe my marriage to a sex addict. If you decide to try and put it together again, where do you start? Surround yourself with a ton of support and read books like this. It's a great guide for couples trying to recover from such a taboo and insidious addiction. The Collins have provided a simple (not always easy) guide to help couples navigate and endure the slow, difficult, and often painful process of rebuilding a relationship. Thank you Paldrom and George!!!
