Sex addiction IS a mental-health disorder, declares World Health Organization and treatment
"Known as compulsive sexual behaviour disorder, it is defined as an inability to control intense sexual urges leading to people neglecting their health despite often deriving no pleasure from being intimate, according to a report issued by the WHO."
Can child molesters claim mental illness now? The inability to control intense sexual urges..
I'm not sure how this fits into the big picture but it seems that this is heading in the direction of justifying any sexual conduct as a mental disease.
I hope I have not already gone over the line on what is allowed on this site - if I have I apologize to the staff!

Of course its a disorder.. wonder how long till the wonder pill appears to treat it, that will only give you 6 side effects that each require a different medication to treat.

So, the treatment for sex addition would be what....Sex? Now the medical trade will be prescribing sex to ween people off of sex? Of course a Pharma company can be the only one supplying this service, and you will need a doctors prescription every month to actually have the insurance pay for it.
Where do I sign up?

Wait, so are you born that way, or is it a mental disorder?
or do you just pick and choose which ones are which based on your political party?
