Dating sexaholics

I'm going to hit up the sex addicts anonymous on tuesday, and see whats up. I probably should be in one of those meetings to get help, but instead i'm going to try to use it as a hookup.

"Maybe Samantha in Sex and the City is having a blast, or maybe she's obsessed and her whole life is controlled by sex," she says, adding that, to her mind, many familiar sexual behaviors — the woman in a series of destructive relationships; the myth of nymphomania — can be symptoms of addiction.

Equally subjective is what may constitute "sexual sobriety." For Veronica, whose new boyfriend knows her history, it "doesn't mean never having sex again.
