Sex Addiction Self Test
A sex addiction self test, such as the Sexual Addiction Screening Test that follows, is usually the first place the addict or a family member goes to understand the destructive nature of sex addiction, and find direction to begin the healing process. Take your time, answer the questions slowly, and begin your healing journey today.
If you scored 6 or greater on the Core Items, your answers HAVE MET the threshold of six of the criteria that indicate sex addiction is present.
If you scored less than 6 on Core Items, then you HAVE NOT MET the threshold of six of the criteria that indicate sex addiction is present.
In addition to the score on the core items, there are certain subscales to further confirm that a problem exists. The following subscales were measured in your answers:
Total Yes Answers on Internet Items---------------
If you scored 3 or greater on the Internet Items, you have a profile consistent with sex addicts who struggle with sexually compulsive behavior on-line.
Total Yes Answers on Men's Items-------------------
If you scored 2 or greater on the Men's Items, you have a profile consistent with men who struggle with sexually compulsive behavior.
Total Yes Answers on Women's Items---------------
If you scored 2 or greater on the Women's Items, you have a profile consistent with women who struggle with sexually compulsive behavior.
Total Yes Answers on Homesexual Men's Items---
If you scored 3 or greater on the Homosexual Men's Items, you have a profile consistent with homosexual men who struggle with sexually compulsive behavior.
If you answered Yes to 4-6 Q’s – you may have a problem
If you answered Yes to 7 or more questions, we suggest you seek help for cybersex addiction, internet sex addiction or pornographic addiction.
