Experts of Sex Addiction Rehab say, if left untreated sex addiction can lead to broken relationships, financial ruin, substance abuse, depression and even suicide in some cases. Sexual response is one of the most powerful triggers of feel-good chemicals known as endorphin in the brain system; this is the primary cause of sexual addiction.

Relationships are also broken because of this addiction. Most of the phone sex operators who were interviewed also said, “Phone sex is an emotional drain”.

“Sometimes men need an outlet that is more than what they feel comfortable with telling someone they love”

“On the flip side, I do not condone abuse nor do I support it whether it is mental, physical or emotional. I am not saying accept his behavior as ultimately you have to do what is right for you”

Cameryn* another phone sex operator says,

“I don’t think that sex of any sort can be an addiction. Someone can be neurotic or insecure or needing approval, but those are the underlying psychological problems, not the sex itself”.

“If someone is using phone sex a lot, and they were worried about the amount, then hopefully they would go to a psychologist who understands that distinction”.
