That news was not unexpected. And, reading up on the subject, I find a lot of acronyms and dense terminology which probably nobody understands. Think about terms like Relational Trauma (RT) Model. I guess that’s like as in realizing that your partner doesn’t want to have sex with you anymore and it causes you trauma? Then I’ve read about treatment for partners of sex addicts. I think the people who need treatment are the ones who have not found a partner who is a sex addict, another very traumatic experience indeed! We have The Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS), and I hope to find such a partner and thereby become eligible to join this Association, djupppie! Also noteworthy is Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), that too could be a difficult occupation. And consider that avoidance of sexual stimuli does not meet “section C of PTSD code F43.10 of the DSM-V” and that there is a hair raising problem right there. And should I dare mention “hypervigilance”? That’s a term which defines the act of watching or spying on your partner due to a lack of trust. I wouldn’t trust a partner that’s a sexual addict and avoids sex with me too! And so in closing, I guess the moral of the story is: Make sure your partner knows nothing about RT, is a sexual addict with you, has never heard of CSAT and does not fall within the jurisdiction of “section C of PTSD”, and you will have a long and blistering, err I mean, blissful marriage.
