Thank you for this article. There are aspects that seem well-supported and others we might discuss further, which is probably a good sign of striving for balance.
I just wanted to add the recent information the World Health Organization posted on the ICD-11 online. They believe it is important to distinguish that they did not support sex/porn as "addictive" and that compulsivity is a very different model. They described:
"materials related to the ICD-11 make very clear that CSBD is not intended to be interchangeable with sex addiction, but rather is a substancially different diagnostic framework"
"although the term 'sex addiction' has been taken up by the popular media, the Working Group concluded that available evidence did not support this conceptualization"
