A case of late onset compulsive sexual addiction

Meliha Zengin Eroğlu, Lut Tamam.

Abstract
Compulsive sexual addiction is a clinical phenomenon which affects approximately 5% to 6% of the population. It has been reported to be more common in men than women, with an estimated ratio of male to female 3:1. It is common in late adolescence and early adulthood. People with compulsive sexual addiction have frequent intrusive thoughts about sex and difficulty controlling their sexual behavior which can result in numerous problems. This phenomenon has been evaluated as a behavioral addiction and an obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder. It has been reported to involve frequent comorbidity with anxiety disorders, depression, alcohol, and drug abuse or dependence. It is not possible to determine the normal frequency of sexual behavior. Total sexual activity as the number of orgasms per week is used to define hypersexuality measure. Here, we reported an atypical case in terms of age of onset and gender.

Key words: compulsive sexual addiction, sexual disorder, compulsive sexual behavior
