    Wink I Swear, I Can Stop Anytime!

    Note: I put this in the Lounge, rather than Health Info, because I don't take it seriously and I'm just curious about people's score if they want to take the test.

    Just for fun, I did the Sex Addiction Standard Test (SAST), which is supposed to measure how at risk you are of being a ''sex addict''. I am curious to know how high other merbites would score.
    http://www.recoveryzone.com/tests/se...SAST/index.php

    I scored 6, which indicates that I am at risk and am probably very scared about that and should feel relieved that there are therapists willing to help me for a reasonable donation. It's still fairly low, because I do not feel any guilt. (It probably mean that I'm a dangerous psychopath instead)

    The test really is a joke. It essentially measures how much you deviate from traditional vanilla sex and how guilty you feel about that. Like sexologist Marty Klein say, ''It's morality dressed up in clinical terms''.

    I know that many people here often worry about their use of commercial sex, often with good reasons. But I think calling it sex addiction is just a way to avoid searching for the real source of someone's problem. Often, the compulsive sex part is simply the result rather than the cause, of some personal problem.

    The worst part I think: many people who undertake 12-step programs end up being 12-step program addicts for the rest of their lives. I think sex is more fun.

    If alcohol destroys your liver, you better stop before you die.
    If your sex habits destroy your relationship, maybe you're just not in the right relationship.

    BTW, many questions I find very ambiguous and my score fluctuates between 4 and 6 depending on how I respond.

    For example:
    ''Do you often find yourself preoccupied with sexual thoughts? '' Does that mean to be worried about sex questions or just thinking about them philosophically? WHat if you're a sexologist?

    ''Do you believe casual or anonymous sex has kept you from having more long-term intimate relationships? '' I don't WANT a serious relationship! Is that a yes or a no? I'd say it has safeguarded me from marriage.

    ''Do you hide some of your sexual behaviors from others?'' I never told my co-workers that I masturbate; is that a yes? Whenever I have sex with an escort, I make sure to close the door of the hotel room.

    ''Have you maintained multiple romantic or sexual relationships at the same time? '' Does having two regular escorts count as a yes?

    I scored high as well on this test, but again I have answered all the questions very honestly What about merbites who have a high daily average post count (implying a great amount of time spent here) and who got a low score? Could we safely predict that they will score high on the "I am a sex addict but I am in denial test" ? But they might deny that they are in denial and this will degenerate into an infinite sequence of surveys and denials!

    I think i'm in trouble, my score is higher than panthere's which is not good, I think that my worst fears has just been confirmed, maybe I should redo the test just to be sure but I'm afraid that I will score even higher, yikes!!!!

    Funny, i was deciding between Shakira and Selena for the video i posted above. They both sure know how to get the blood boiling in a Man dont they? Shakira is the reason I started watching "The Voice" this season, she looks better than she ever has IMO. Not a fan of the shorter hair in that video but her "hips dont lie" as always.

    But I answered yes to the questions "Do you use escort service?" and "Do you pass to much time on internet for sex sites?"...
    But there were couple of questions that I hesitated...
    I will redo the test cause I want to be a Sex Addict!!! :P
