Caller Question: "How can I be a Sex Addict and a Sexual Anorexic? In a recent podcast about increasing sex drive, sexual anorexia was mentioned, and I looked into it. As a sex addict it seems confusing that I would also be a sexual anorexic, but the criteria seems to fit. My wife and I were physical while dating, but as soon as we got married the desire for sexual intimacy disappeared. The pornography addiction remained, but despite my wife's desire for sex, I struggled to be intimate with her. I assumed it was the addiction, but 3 years of recovery has not increased the sexual desire for my wife. Is it Sexual Anorexia? Intimacy Anorexia? Or something else entirely?"
