Publisher's Summary

Sex is at the core of our identities. And when it becomes a compulsion, it can unravel our lives. Out of the Shadows is the premier work on this disorder, written by a pioneer in its treatment. Revised and updated to include the latest research - and to address the exploding phenomenon of cybersex addiction - this third edition identifies the danger signs, explains the dynamics, and describes the consequences of sexual addiction and dependency. With practical wisdom and spiritual clarity, it points the way out of the shadows of sexual compulsion and back into the light and fullness of life.

Very Extreme

This is a good book. I have struggled with fetishes and porn and wanted help. The issue is while I felt like I couldn't relate to other books wherein the person struggled with masturbating once per week (seemed minor compared to my problems) I found I couldn't relate to this book for the exact opposite reason. The examples and illustrations are oriented for the extremely advanced sex addict. This book is geared towards not just child molesters and rapists but to those who do it non stop for years. This book contains the stuff nightmares are made of. Don't even think about it if you have a weak stomach.
