Sex addiction takes many forms. In other words, there are many types of sex addicts and sexual addiction. If your sexual behavior is causing problems in your life (personal or professional), take the free and anonymous online test to determine if sex addiction is a problem.

If you find that your behaviour is problematic, please get help by going to our contact page and send a message about setting up an appointment with Wings of Hope.
