Sexual Addiction Self-Screening Quiz

  • If you are uncertain as to whether you might be a sex addict, the following quiz is designed help. This test is similar to the twenty-question quiz that Alcoholics Anonymous offers to help people decide if they are alcoholic. A scoring key can be found at the end of the test.

    Please answer yes or no to the following 15 questions. In doing so, you should consider your entire sexual history, not just recent events. In other words, if you were using porn three years ago but lately your issue has been escorts, you should still take your porn use into account.

  • SCORING: If you did not answer yes to any of these questions, you are probably not a sex addict. If you answered yes to one or two questions, you are at-risk for sexual addiction. If you answered yes to three or more of the questions, there is a definite possibility that you are sexually addicted. If you want to seek professional help for sex addiction, therapist and treatment referrals can be found here and here. If you would like to learn more about sex addiction in general, check out my recently published books, Always Turned On: Sex Addiction in the Digital Age and Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing from Sex, Porn, and Love Addiction.

    IMPORTANT: An affirmative answer to question 13, regarding illegal sexual behavior, is always a problem, even if you’re not a sex addict. If you answered yes to that question, you should absolutely seek confidential advice from a professional counselor who is skilled in handling such issues. If/when you do this, be aware of the fact that psychotherapists and other helping professionals have reporting requirements (that vary from state to state) when it comes to illegal sexual behaviors. You need to find out what these requirements are before you talk in detail about you’ve been doing.
