Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Drawing from his professional experience working with sex addicts and their partners, Magness (founder, Hope & Freedom Counseling Svcs.) defines what sex addiction is and describes what is needed for successful recovery. This sometimes involves significant life changes, including actively working with an experienced sex addiction-experienced therapist, becoming involved with a 12-step sex addiction program, establishing lifetime accountability, and more. Magness also describes the challenges partners of sex addicts face; he includes a collection of survey responses from partners. VERDICT Sex addiction is a complicated subject in psychotherapy and has not yet been officially recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). Clearly, many aspects of Magness's approach to sex addiction and recovery are informed by contemporary American Christian beliefs about family, gender, and sexuality, but that's true of our culture at large, too. It is this subtlety, turning the description of compulsive-impulsive-destructive behavior into the moralization of sexual behaviors and the limiting of sexual expression to a traditional, conservative Judeo-Christian framework, that is a problem for this book. Despite the author's intention to help individuals and relationships, he cannot avoid these pitfalls, and therefore this book is not recommended.—Scott Vieira, Sam Houston State Univ. Lib., Huntsville, TX
From the Publisher

“The most comprehensive text since Out of the Shadows. A must-read for every sex addict, their partner, and their family. Each page instills hope for those struggling with sexual addiction, while not minimizing the pain involved in the process. It will help newcomers and old-timers alike.”—David L. Delmonico, Ph.D., Author, In the Shadows of the Net and Cybersex Unhooked

“I’ve worked with many women who, along with their partner, have done a weekend intensive with Dr. Magness and I consistently see these marriages having higher success rates than those who don’t utilize his services. I’m delighted that now, between the covers of this book, many more couples and individuals will be able to take advantage of his wisdom, experience and guidance as they grapple with sexual addiction in their lives and marriages. This is a must read for anyone who falls into that painful category, and for everyone who seeks to help others dealing with this issue in their lives. I often tell people this is only book they really need to read if they want to know about sexual addiction. It is the best ‘bible’ on the subject.”—Marsha Means, MA, Author, Your Sexually Addicted Spouse and Living with Your Husband’s Secret Wars
