UCLA sex addiction study

UCLA researchers did a research on sex addiction. They gathered participants who were self proclaimed sex addicts and measured their brain waves by showing them pictures of sexual images. They found that the brain didn’t respond to the sexual images as they predicted it would if they were actually addicted to sex. This also supports the no side of sex addiction.

I am personally indecisive about whether or not sex is considered an addiction. Because of all the readings I’ve done, it makes it hard to make a decision especially since there isn’t too much evidence that supports the yes side argument of sex addiction.

Below shows the brain images done while the sexual images were being shown to participants.
