    Perhaps someone knows of a medication that could help me??? I have heard that SSRIs can reduce sex drive and this is exactly what I need! I am 27 and have suffered from a sex addiction for some time. Initially this included viewing pornography and masturbation on average 3 times per day. As time went on I developed an even greater labido and began to engage in random, risky sex. Now I am to the point where I get a gnawing feeling in my stomach if I am not out at the seedy bars cruising around for willing girls to engage my increasingly hard core desires. I have done a lot of things I am not very proud of, and my job performance is starting to suffer. I have a high paying white collar job -- it is a wonder that I have time to get into so much trouble. I have tried counseling, 12 step programs, self help, everything, but must now mastrubate or have sex 7 times per day just to maintain my so-called "equilibrium." Maybe I should have gone into porn? But seriously, I am putting my health and my family's well-being at risk. I am ready to retaliate against this thing with whatever measures are necessary. Don't care if it completely kills my sex drive -- just something to give me my life back!! Please help!

    Hi Ricky...I have never even read this topic untill now it must have been a older one. I know antidepresants mess with ones performance but not sure about the drive itself because I have never been on any. But have heard it messes with the ability to hold an erection.
    I am sorry I can tell this is really bothering you but I know nothing about sex addiction because I have always been the opposite and had a low sex drive even when I was so in love with a man I couldnt see straight I didnt care whether we had sex or not. Strange huh? I love the closeness of it but could take or leave the other part of it.
    I would assume there would be sites here on the net about it but I am not sure. Maybe someone here will come along that knows a bit about it. In the meantime its nice to meet you Ricky and make yourself at home there are wonderful people here that have all become my friends they dont judge and they support everyone. Take care and God Bless.
