Sexual Addiction Self-Assessment:

Patrick Carnes, one of the nation's leading experts on addiction, has developed the S.A.F.E. Formula that is suggested as a guideline. Signs of compulsive sexuality are when the behavior can be described as follows:

It is a Secret. Anything that cannot pass public scrutiny will create the shame of a double life.

It is Abusive to self or others. Anything that is exploitive or harmful to others or degrades oneself will activate the addictive systems.

It is is used to avoid or is a source of painful Feelings. If sexuality is used to alter moods or results in painful mood shifts, it is clearly part of the addictive process. 

It is Empty of a caring, committed relationship. Fundamental to the whole concept of addiction and recovery is the healthy dimension of human relationships. The addict runs a great risk by being sexual
outside of a committed relationship.
