Resourcing the article[edit]

I'm just making a new thread on this topic because the previous one has three tangential subthreads.

Here's the current reviews on this topic that I found:

I'll download the first three and upload them for anyone interested to download... should have that done over the next day or two. Been a bit busy the last two days, so I didn't have a chance to finish this. I didn't find anything on the topics in the causes section in relation to sex addictions, so that will need to be rewritten with the content of these reviews (assuming there is anything on causes).

Model-specific organization of the article[edit]

@The Anome: I just finished doing a lot of editing to try to clarify that there are two frameworks of addiction covered in this article as well as indicate which framework is used in model-specific sections of the article.

Let me know what you think. I'm open to revising it; I feel like it could use additional copyediting, mainly because there was a large amount of text that I added/changed. Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained) 21:38, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

This article is much improved by your edits. I think the current article better serves anyone from the general public coming to this page now for information to write a report or learn about sex addiction. I would suggest a section about sex addiction in popular entertainment citing recent films like Shame, Thanks for Sharing, etc. Also it seems a section about Patrick Carnes' book Out of the Shadows would be appropriate in the history section because this was the first public mention and exploration of the concept of sex addiction as it is currently known. In general, it would be helpful for the casual reader to get a sense of how the concept of sex addiction has evolved since the publication of that book. But great work cleaning up a difficult subject!TBliss (talk) 18:39, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
