People who show compulsive sexual behaviour – sex addiction – are driven to search more for new sexual images than their peers, according to new research led by the University of Cambridge. The findings may be particularly relevant in the context of online porn, which potentially provides an almost endless source of new images.
In a study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, researchers also report that sex addicts are more susceptible to environment ‘cues’ linked to sexual images than to those linked to neutral images.
