Some people find it surprising that in virtually every culture across the world, there are large numbers of individuals who struggle with unhealthy sexual outlets and behaviors. Why has this trend become so prevalent?
Sexual thoughts and desires are very normal and natural. God gives all men and women erotic energy, which we call the sex drive. We have a passionate inheritance! It's only when these thoughts and desires become exaggerated or engaged in outside of marriage, that they turn destructive.
A term commonly used to describe an exaggerated or highly elevated desire to pursue sexual outlets and behaviors is "Hyper-Sexuality." At this level, human sexual behavior causes great disruption to the individual's life and harms relationships, productivity, spirituality and self- image.
Sexual encounters are powerful because they tap into and trigger intense emotional, biological and chemical responses throughout the brain and body. In fact, the neurochemical release triggered by illicit sexual behaviors is so intense, many scientists refer to it as the most powerful drug in history.
Many people get caught up in hyper-sexuality or sex addiction making it their "drug of choice" for escape, self-medication and an attempted replacement for real human intimacy. The struggle against this twisted sexual energy is a struggle against the forces of evil. Read more about the Brain Science of Unwanted Sexual Behaviors.
