Description

Sex is at the core of our identities. And when it becomes a compulsion, it can unravel our lives. Out of the Shadows is the premier work on this disorder, written by a pioneer in its treatment. Revised and updated to include the latest research - and to address the exploding phenomenon of cybersex addiction - this third edition identifies the danger signs, explains the dynamics, and describes the consequences of sexual addiction and dependency. With practical wisdom and spiritual clarity, it points the way out of the shadows of sexual compulsion and back into the light and fullness of life.

Very Extreme

This is a good book. I have struggled with fetishes and porn and wanted help. The issue is while I felt like I couldn't relate to other books wherein the person struggled with masturbating once per week (seemed minor compared to my problems) I found I couldn't relate to this book for the exact opposite reason. The examples and illustrations are oriented for the extremely advanced sex addict. This book is geared towards not just child molesters and rapists but to those who do it non stop for years. This book contains the stuff nightmares are made of. Don't even think about it if you have a weak stomach.

expertly explains sex addiction

I am so glad I bought this book because it is giving me so much Insight on my husband's disease and how I contribute to it also how I'm codependent. I remember listening to one of the chapters and I just ended up bawling crying because of all the compassion I felt for my husband and his struggle. this book has been a turning point for me

Helpful

Great book. very helpful. most cases were very extreme that made me seem as if I don't be long in this type of community. but I will trust that if I attend the sessions, I may realize my belongingness.

Good read for if trying to understand sex addictio

Narrator was just ok. Section on co-addicts was not that relatable to me since their actions are portrayed were quite extreme. I am definitely a trauma survivor as the partner of a sex addict but few traits described related to me personally.

Too graphic, not practical

I read this book to better help others with addictions. however the book goes into so much detail with events like rape and incest, it disgust me. You can learn about addiction without that

a below average book about sex addiction

to be honest I think the book deserve a lower rating than 3 stars. but I don't want to discourage other people who might suffer from this addiction to read this book or any other book as a mean of getting help. just keep in mind there are better books about the subject out there.
first the story teller speaks in a very emotional way, which I think is not appropriate for such a sensitive subject. second he spends some time telling small unnecessary details. third he focuses too much on two types of sex addiction but didn't talk about many other subtypes at all.
I wiah the author have spent more time talking about the therapy.
