The following is taken from ICD-11 CSB page:

All Index Terms:
- Compulsive sexual behaviour disorder
- sex addiction

CSB may be in the impulse control disorder section, but Pathological Gambling was in the DSM impulse control disorder section before being moved into the "Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders" section.

Anyhow, the forces that be (and the research) is moving in the direction of addiction (even though DSM and ICD never use the word addiction for anything). By the way the ICD-11 will also include a section called "Disorders due to addictive behaviours", which exists for behavioral addictions. Only a matter of time.....
