Alfred Kinsey quote - "A nymphomaniac is someone who has more sex than you do."

Ah. Yes... To be a sex addict (or) To not be a sex addict - That is the question.

From masturbation, to promiscuity, to fetish, to voyeurism, to porn, and beyond - When it comes to the likes of sex addiction, and all of its ups & downs, and ins & outs (pardon the pun) - You can be sure that author/psychologist, David Ley has thoroughly covered all the ground and has certainly come up with some very surprising and, yes, enlightening facts & figures regarding unbridled, compulsive sexual behaviour (and what is really behind it all).

I found it particularly interesting to read Ley's slant on things when it came to sex addiction on the internet and how the immediate accessibility of "cyber-sex" has now completely repaved and altered the carnal landscape, so significantly, like never before.
