I don't know how sexual addiction works- it's fairly hard for me to see a biological imperative as an ''addiction'' in the first place. But, I'm guessing that the standards for ''sexual addiction'' are a lot lower among fundamentalists than they are among the rest of us, no? And, indeed Pure Life Ministries, who claim to cure Christian women of sex addiction via a $5,1000 live-in treatment program, consider masturbation to be seriously out of bounds. I don't know how much of a 'crisis' online sex addiction is for some people, but you have to wonder if it's really worth giving up five thousand bucks and half a year of your life to learn how not to diddle yourself.

Like the dude asked, how're you going to keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen Karl Hungus?
Pam's House Blend has an article about the ''growing crisis of sexual addiction among Christian women''. Oh my! It's fairly striking proof that the Internet has mainstreamed porn to hear that evangelical Christian women are claiming to be addicted to online smut, in fact something like 34 percent of them according to Christian Woman magazine. Online sexual addiction often leads to serious problems like masturbating and... um, napping. Maybe carpal tunnel syndrome.
