Our expert says:
I think the term "sex addict" is profoundly unhelpful, especially as it implies that you are helpless to change your behaviour, when this is definitively not true. You don't mention whether you have ALWAYS had a very high libido ( it varies amongst us, like height and weight ) or whether this has been a recent development. There are numerous possible causes for such a change, if that is the case ; and maybe it's simply that you have a higher level of libido than most, and maybe more than your husband. Either way it would be worth seeing a shrink or family counsellor to explore the nature of the problem you experience, and to explore options for changing it to the degree that it is inconvenient
