Podcast: Dr Eve Speaks About Out of Control Sexual Behaviour and Critiques the Term "Sex Addict"

Ageing and SexualityDr Eve recently spoke about “out of control sexual behaviour” on Talk Radio 702.

The sex therapist, clinical sexologist and author of Ageing and Sexuality: Your 21st Century Guide to Lifelong Sensuality asks, what is acceptable, appropriate healthy sexual behaviour for people?

Dr Eve says we are prone to jump to the diagnostic term “sexual addiction”, while hypersexual behaviour in men is about psychological deterioration. “These are men who are unable to control their emotions, to be able to manage difficult, unpleasant thoughts and feelings and it actualises into sexual behaviour.”

Dr Eve says that couples should have a shared value system and communicate over what they deem unacceptable sexual behaviour.

In the second part of the show readers call in to discuss the issue of hypersexuality.
