Gender and sexuality are to make only at the beginning of the "taboo" families and relationships; However, it is to know about the number of people with sexual proclivities.


The question whether there is know more can be endlessly argued inclinations or more actual tendencies, but the fact that there are a large number of sexual addicts in our public and very few counselors with the knowledge with these addicts work must be focused.

Carnes is called it: "a moment comes for every addict, if the consequences are so large or the pain is so bad, that the addict admits life is out of control because of their sexual behavior" (p 1). This moment is different with every addict. As seen on Dateline: to catch A predator, some people are arrested and never again after minor but some are arrested and back again.

Many of the people in the level a category feel a sense of control over their searches to engage that including spans of time, they not in the behaviors and then other times binge.


Level two gets more in the illegal aspects of looking. Level two are Exhibitionism, voyeurism, indecent phone calls and indecent liberties. Most of the company would see them as a nuisance, but as a serious crime. These actions relate to violate without their consent on the start on others.
