I’m wondering how many people who claim to be polyamorous are actually sex addicts?
Or is it just denial? There are things wrong with this relationship, I don’t want to face them, so I will run around finding others who can balance that out.
I always thought a main guideline for “doing poly right” was to have your current relationship in order first.
But who am I to talk, I was in denial of how much my marriage hurt, and when a partner tried to protect me I pushed him out of my life because me denial was so entrenched.
A partner once accused me of being a sex addict. Even bought me a book on it. As I learn more about the “condition” I am convinced I was right to laugh at it then.
Having a high sex drive is not an addiction to be cured if it does none harm. I enjoyed sex instead of sitting in front of the TV (or computer), yet we don’t call those folks addicts as long as they get done what needs to be done…
