Poly or Sex Addict or What?

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…

    Definitely two separate things! Poly is your ability to love and have relationships with more than one person, sex is just a side note. It’s possible to be poly and asexual.

    Ain’t nothing wrong with a high sex drive! 😀
