From Patrick Yaeger of Queer Visions:
Many in the gay community still equate sexual promiscuity with gay liberation in general. Irresponsible nonsense.
Within the gay community, sexual addiction runs rampant. The reasons are obvious given the history of our treatment and ostracization by society. Nevertheless, now that we are gaining inclusion and being welcomed as equals, we need to face it as the chronic serious problem that it is.
While antigay activists con exgays into believing same-sex attraction and addiction are synonymous, some advocates for equality are constructively educating people about compulsion and offering them the practical means to change.
Sexual Compulsives Anonymous offers a 20-question test, 14 characteristics of compulsion, and steps toward recovery.
