The Sure-fire Recipe for Creating a Sex Addict

How and why do people get addicted to Sex

There is cook book recipe that works every time, in every kitchen. It’s a no fail recipe for creating a sex addict.

Sex addicts are not born, “they’re created”. They’re mixed up and baked like a cake. And for anyone out there who would like to create (or to avoid creating) a future sex addict or possibly to better understand how their own addiction(s) came about, I have provided a time-tested recipe below. It’s an old family recipe, passed down through the generations.


  • One small human, preferably an infant or a toddler, either gender
  • One or more unavailable, avoidant, unstable and/or critical caretakers
  • Neglect (emotional and/or physical)
  • Abuse (emotional, physical, and/or sexual)
  • Consistent and profound stress within the home (financial woes, fighting, moving around a lot, chronic and/or serious physical ailments, infidelity, etc.)
  • One very large helping of “don’t talk about it and pretend our life is peachy”
  • Iffy genetics (most likely evidenced by a family history of addiction and/or mental illness)
  • One package yeast


  • Mix ingredients in a very large bowl (or a confusing and tension filled household) and set aside until the small human expands (this is what the yeast is for) into a disconnected, unhappy child with low self-esteem.
  • Push the disconnected, unhappy child with low self-esteem into a greased, floured, and highly dysfunctional social and school environment.
  • Heat in life’s pressure cooker until the child starts to compulsively drink, get high, look at porn, or engage in other addictive behaviors.
  • Do not supervise or provide guidance about handling life’s difficulties.
  • Allow the unhappy child to assume that everything is his/her fault.
  • Add one tablespoon of poor parental relational skills create a source that upsets and hurts children that can result in the child internalizing negative messages about relationships that follow them into their adult life.
  • Do not talk, provide guidance or otherwise engage in open dialogue nor offer insight into problems that the child or the family might be having.
  • Season to taste with generous helpings of “ignore it and maybe it will go away,” “enabling,” “covering up,” “letting the addict run roughshod over the family,” “pushing the blame onto any person who dares point out the problem,” and any other form of dysfunction in your cupboard.

To Serve

  • Open the front door and unleash this unprepared, troubled, insecure person on the world. If the neighbours are watching, act as if everything is perfectly okay, thank you very much for asking, now please go away and leave us alone.

This ‘recipe’ for addiction is scientifically verified.

In fact, huge amounts of research confirm that problematic genetics combined with a dysfunctional upbringing and various forms of early-life trauma significantly increase the risk for addiction. For instance, a combination of genetic predisposition, addictive behavior parent(s), childhood trauma, and early exposure to an addictive substance or behavior occurs relatively often, nearly always creating a witch’s brew of ongoing life problems, including addictions and numerous other emotional and psychological issues.
