10 Common Questions Men Have About Sex Addiction

1. Question: Am I a sex addict?

Answer: There are a number of red flags that can signal an addiction to sex. A person who uses sexual activity be it intercourse, viewing pornography, phone sex, chat rooms, prostitution or masturbation as a numbing agent, something to prevent them from feeling bad, may have a sex addiction. Other indicators the sexual behavior is causing the addict problems include their spouse becoming upset over their behavior or they’ve gone into debt over payment for phone sex lines or Internet pornography sites. Spending an excessive amount of time viewing pornography Over 10 hours a week is another red flag, since this sexual behavior is interfering with time spent with friends, family or at work.

Another key factor is the addict has tried to stop engaging in sexual behavior but failed. When all these things come together, it’s time to ask a professional about getting help.

2. Question: Can I be cured?

Answer: Many sex addicts have reported being able to bring their sexual behavior under control, through any one of a variety of treatment methods. Some attend intensive rehabilitation facilities; others go to therapy sessions, attend 12 step meetings or use medication and a host of other techniques to control their sexual behavior. This can include finding a trusted person to act as an “accountability partner.” Or for pornography addicts, it can mean the use of pornography blocking computer programs.

3. Question: Does being cured mean I give up sex?

Answer: No. Unlike chemical dependencies related to alcohol or drugs, sex is recognized as a healthy aspect of life. Treatment for sex addiction, while it does involve a period of abstinence, seeks to bring harmful and unwanted troublesome sexual activity under control to where it is no longer causing harm. It may lead to stopping viewing pornography, discontinuing solicitation of prostitutes and other “bottom line” behaviors or even illegal activities. The goal is stopping harmful behavior, but certainly not giving up sex.

4. Question: Is sex addiction even real, or just something people use to excuse their behavior?

Answer: Truth be told, there are some experts who don’t feel sex addiction is real and say it’s more a product of conflicting social norms and mores. Other say sex addiction exists but do not feel it meets the definition of an addiction in the same way addiction to alcohol or drugs does. For a sex addict seeking treatment, it may be a moot point. To get treatment, first one has to recognize they have a problem and stop trying to use their own willpower alone to control it. Many people have sought treatment for sex addiction and reported results. Much of the criticism about its validity has been aimed at celebrities embroiled in public sex scandals and is hardly analogous to the average person not living in the public eye. Sex addiction is real and one struggling with unwanted sexual behaviors certainly can attest to that fact.

5. Question: What caused this? How did I get to be this way?

Answer: There is no definitive cause for sex addiction, and for each person it will be different. Many sex addicts report being sexually abused at a young age and growing up with a distorted view of sex and what a healthy sex life should be. For others, it is simply the rush of chemicals in their brain after discovering a parent’s pornography stash or coming across it in some other fashion. Still others indicate the accessibility of Internet pornography had them fall into a cycle, while there are those who turned to using sex as a numbing agent during a difficult period in their lives and began relying on it as a coping mechanism. For some growing up with abuse, neglect, abandonment and enmeshment have cause the to seek out other ways to feel good about life and themselves.

While knowing the cause of sex addiction is important, those on the path to recovery should not seek to dwell on the unchangeable past; instead, they need to focus on their present actions.

6. Question: Does viewing pornography and sexual interaction over the Internet count as cheating on my spouse?

Answer: Not to be glib, but it can depend on the spouse. Certainly many women do feel that their spouses having cybersex or phone sex with another woman qualifies as infidelity. They may not react in the exact same way as if it had been physical sex with another woman, but the impact on a relationship can be dire. First, the wife will feel betrayed. She won’t trust her husband if he’s been hiding his behavior. She may can feel bad about herself, perhaps thinking some failing on her part led the husband to seek these sexual outlets.

Even pornography viewing can be a sore spot for women. Society places a lot of pressure on women to be physically attractive and sexually desirable and they may feel they are in competition with actresses in pornographic videos. This can affect their self-esteem, even if they do not confront their husband about the behavior.

7. Question: Can medication lower my sex drive so I don’t have this problem.

Answer: Yes and no. There are medications out there that can lower a person’s sex drive, and they are often used to treat sex addiction. However, they are limited in their power to erase the problem completely. Some form of therapy, be it a 12 step program or other process, is required.

8. Question: Will I ever be cured or is this a lifelong problem?

Answer: Many people report being able to bring their sexual behaviors under control, sometimes after a period of months or years, and are living lives relatively free of problems related to sex addiction. These people have addressed the factors in their life they had once sought to control by using sex; they have now embedded into their lives multiple tools to avoid falling back into destructive addiction cycles. For some, there is always the fear they will relapse, and some do struggle with sex addiction for long periods of time. There is no quick fix for the problem.

9. Question: I’m also addicted to alcohol. Is my sex addiction just a sign that I’m susceptible to addictive behaviors in general?

Answer: In some ways, yes. Many sex addicts report being addicted to alcohol, drugs, or behaviors such as gambling. They also claim family members with various addictions. It’s certainly been theorized that a person can have a genetic predisposition to addictive behaviors. As to treating multiple addictions, it should be noted that many sex addiction treatment programs are modeled after alcohol treatment techniques developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. 12 step programs such as Sexaholics Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous and Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous model their programs after and borrow their literature from that organization.

10. Question: Am I really a sex addict or is my sex drive just naturally high?

Answer: The difference between a sex addict and a person who enjoys a lot of sex has to do with why the behavior is being sought and the inability to stop an unwanted behavior as well as the obsession and compulsion. A person with a high sex drive is aroused and in most cases can control acting on that arousal. A sex addict is engaging in sex as a coping mechanism, isolating themselves from others even if they have a real life partner for the sex, and engaging in the sex act compulsively. They may feel shame after they complete the act, or some general feelings of depression. Actual arousal is not the primary motivator.

Immanuel Kant’s Greatest Discovery

The Sumerian culture at the dawn of civilisation had a seven day week; each day had 24 hours and each hour had 60 minutes. From their geometrical mathematical intuition we inherited watches and clocks, and went on to develop technology able to carry information through millions of years of space-time. However, the Sumerians had no idea about the mathematics of infinity, which instead began as a religious concept about the nature of eternity. The Babylonian culture, which followed, developed a mathematics that was able to predict the 672 BC eclipse of the moon. By linking this ability to religious superstition the mathematical priests controlled the people by fear, using scientific logic as an instrument of enslavement.

During the 1800s America’s champion of liberty and freedom, Ralph Waldo Emerson, argued that American financiers had used the Babylonian trickery to enslave the people to a life of perpetual debt. He pointed out that the mechanistic technology adopted in America dismissed a supra-technology alluded to within the infinity belonging to Indian Sanskrit mathematics, which represented freedom from commercial serfdom.

This mathematical trickery that controls the minds of the people to accept financial enslavement, is now quite well known. This mathematics, used for poker machine games, is designed to bring about a state of bankruptcy through a compulsion causing addicts to continually play. This deceitful mathematics, coupled with aesthetically pleasing sound and colour combinations, manipulates dopamine functioning in the mind, creating mental anticipation to obtain some unsustainable future benefit. This addiction is known to be as strong as a heroin habit. Government revenues are collected that echo the gambling structure of the global stock-market economy. This unethical phenomenon is simply a false imitation of a natural optical process called inner stereoscopic vision, which presents data allowing for logical outcomes to materialise.

Stereoscopic signaling and communication scientists are beginning to realise that they have no control over the accelerating development of the unhealthy mind control flow of unethical information. The scientists began with investigating complaints that 3D films made a small percentage of viewers slightly nauseous, which was rectified by high tech stereoscopic developments. Now, serious stereoscopic neurological signals and information are known to adversely affect the everyday life of the general populace, resulting in community isolation and depression, that science cannot redress.

However, a new neurological science to rectify this problem was established by the linguist physicist, Guy Deutscher, when he revived the discarded 19th Century linguistic evolutionary colour perception theories of the British Prime minister, William Gladstone and the philosopher of science, Wolfgang von Goethe. Deutscher’s 2012 book of the year Through the Language Glass, translated into eight languages, contained the linguistic methodology needed to envisage the nature of future human survival technology. In that same year the recipients of the Giorgio Napolitano Medal, were awarded, on behalf of the Republic of Italy for their quantum biological discoveries, compatible with Deutscher’s findings. Their theories were acclaimed as an integral part of the 21st Century Renaissance.

For public relations the new neurological human survival science and technology will be referred to as immortalizing Albert Einstein’s scientific world-view beyond the limitations of the second law of thermodynamics. The 18th Century philosopher of science, Immanuel Kant, recognized as influencing 21st Century science, is now the hero whose research explains the difference between aesthetics as art appreciation theory and ethics as an artistic science for human survival. His discovery led directly to perceiving the Babylonian mathematical trickery that has now evolved into a deadly computer virus, trapping humanity into following a path toward global chaos.

Kant was well aware that the invention of atomic mathematical 3rd Century BC Greek science, taught at the Academy of Plato, was called The science for ethical ends. He also knew that its sister science concerning particle movement, taught at the Ho Kepos University, was called The science of universal love. Gravitational first-cause principles, taught at the universities, associated the monthly movement of the moon resonating to the atoms of the mother’s soul, explaining her intuitive love and compassion for children.

Kant’s research became the basis of the electromagnetic Golden Age of Danish Science. Sir Isaac Newton published that the ancient Greek science was an authority on gravitational first-cause principles and that the idea of the mechanical mass of objects in space being the cause of gravitational force was, and I quote, a “pretentious” and illogical hypothesis. Whether Newton was right or wrong is not the point. Quantum mechanics was derived upon the false assumption that he had a completely mechanical world-view, when the opposite is true. Quantum mechanics and its offspring sciences cannot provide solid evidence of how to harness first principle logic concerning the healthy evolution of humankind, in particular, concerning the evolutionary purpose of inner stereoscopic vision.

Immanuel Kant and his colleague, Emmanuel Levinas, predicted exactly how this can be done, exposing the very nature of the mathematical virus now controlling global scientific endeavour. By applying their published electromagnetic field properties to Newton’s non-mechanical gravitational principles, the problem is solved. We now know how to balance research with mainstream science in order to develop such things as replacing fossil fuel with the previously mentioned omni-science and technology that Ralph Waldo Emerson predicted in the name of liberty.

Art can be seen to inflict unethical messages upon society. For example, the Roman Colosseum was considered to be an art form that superceded all of Greek art. Its insatiable lust for slaughter made it an unethical monument to artistic aspirations. Beautiful religious edifices using grandiose pomp and circumstance as an artistic pageantry to evoke a lust for warfare against foreign gods, can be seen as being unethical. Plato’s warning, that unethical mathematical science using artistic rhetoric and art forms, could enslave the populace into a mindless consumer society, predicted the present reality of nonstop televised commercial advertising.

The mathematician, Plato, considered that art was an irresponsible and unethical practice, lacking a crucial spiritual ethic. Kant and Levinas agreed with that observation. They devoted in-depth research into the matter and classified the electromagnetic field reality containing the crucial spiritual ethic. They published that an asymmetrical electromagnetic inner vision within in the artistic, creative mind was the spiritual ethic that Plato sought to define.

That message from the Golden Age of Danish Science is the most important human survival discovery ever made. Harvard University, Massachusetts University and the Royal Danish Consulate in 2004, held an international symposium to tell the world of the importance of the work of the electromagnetic Golden Age. They noted that it had been written mostly in Danish and not translated, making it invisible to English speaking scholarship.

Simply by viewing paintings over the centuries through Kantian asymmetrical electromagnetic glasses, the evolution of inner stereoscopic vision is revealed. The evolutionary development of the new human survival neurological science, that Guy Deutscher’s book of the year established from 19th Century linguistic colour perception theory, can now be observed.

Two years ago what was considered to be junk DNA was found to be another DNA strand communicating with the genetic system in the inner stereoscopic language of evolving health and wellbeing. The solution to quantum mechanics’ greatest problem, called the uncertainty principle, was published by the journal Nature, in a paper entitled Sorry Einstein, the Universe needs quantum uncertainty. That paper demonstrated that humanity is now poised at the threshold of Utopia despite being completely addicted to the process of second law extinction.

The present acceleration of chaos can be seen to exhibit the properties of cancer growth and development. Countries using trade embargoes to damage other nations are but one example of this contagious carcinogenic behaviour upon the human species as one leading toward a terminal condition.

Interference with the normal inner stereoscopic vision’s evolutionary process can produce both heroin strength addictions and short circuit the functioning of the vagus compassionate nerve system. Recruiters for jihad terrorism can simply push the right buttons to evoke what was known as the selfish gene activity, to escape extinction at all costs, without a single thought about normal mercy and compassion.

During the 12th and 13th Centuries, the Golden Age of Islamic Science welcomed Jewish and Christian scholars to translate the ethical message of ancient Greek science, at the Translator School in Toledo, Spain. As religious hostilities eroded that research objective, Sultan Memhed II transferred the Renaissance to the Medici Scholars in Italy. 200 years later Christian hostilities associated with Christian Inquisition’s merciless dogma, had nullified all relevant human survival research discoveries in a mindless bloodbath of torture and burning people alive. It is now time for Western culture to re-establish the Islamic inspired Translator School mentality for the protection of all scholars seeking the application of the new human survival and technology outlined in this paper.

What We Know About Poker Pro Fred Sarge Ferris

When you think of all-time greats in the poker world Fred “Sarge” Ferris has to be at the top of your list. Ferris played poker and played it well. Realizing that some people play poker for fun and some played it as a hobby, few of them had what it took to play for a living. Fred “Sarge” Ferris knew he did.

Fred “Sarge” Ferris grew up in the Great Depression and his father did everything to put food on the table. Living in poverty, his brother enlisted in the Navy and later became a well-known watchmaker and jeweler. He wanted to choose a different path. So he picked up gambling. He didn’t call it gambling. He was a consummate professional, never showing off his cards or giving away any information.

Although not much for publicity, Mr. Ferris started getting the attention of the other players and media as well. He started winning big pots, and high stakes cash games garnering the respect of his peers. His first big win came in a deuce-to-seven draw in 1980 winning $10,000. He then won $150,000 and a gold bracelet in the World Series of poker. After collecting his winnings, Fred Ferris was approached by a man named Stu Ungar.

Ungar did everything he could to convince Ferris that he could win the World Series Of Poker, but needed Fred’s help with the entry fee. Fred was unconvinced at first to help him out, after Ungar told him he had never played in a tournament before. Never the less, here stood a man so convinced he could do that Fred gave him a shot. Fred approached it as no different than playing cards; to him it was just another gamble. Ungar played masterfully, out dueling Fred’s arch rival Doyle Brunson to win the World Series of poker.

On April 22nd 1983 IRS agents approached Ferris in the card room and seized $46,000 in chips. It made headlines in on news circuits while sitting at Binion’s Horseshoe at high stakes games. The money was then reportedly seized because of back taxes Ferris owed to the federal government. One of the agents told Ferris to use the remaining money and buy a taco.

Fred “Sarge” Ferris and his scandal outrage the local Hispanic communities. Protesting that one of the agents mocked Ferris’ ethnicity. His parents were born in Lebanon but he was somehow mistaken for a Mexican. This was all a misunderstanding. Ferris said the agent was trying to be nice. The incident died off eventually.

During most of his life, he spent all of his time at the poker table. It seems appropriate to have his tombstone made out of a poker table, he died there. On March 12th, 1989, after playing in a high-stakes cash game, He suffered a massive heart attack. His funeral was held in Las Vegas. Many people attended his funeral. People came to show their condolences, some were happy he had died.

However after everything Ferris brought to the game he became the 18th inductee into the poker hall of fame. Later that year after a long investigation by both Las Vegas casinos and the Indian gaming commission, Ferris would be linked as one of five men who was in debt to the mob. To Fred’s credit the mob would never see their money.

He will be remembered for his accolades and achievements in the world of poker. His intelligence for the game and his techniques have earned him the respect of future poker players. Fred “Sarge” Ferris was called a “consummate pro” for a reason.
