it is regret to tell that, i am always browsing internet and looking the sexual sites, similarly TVs also continuously watching. when i see the breast of girls i will become crazy and continue watching. i thing this is a behavioural case. due to this, now i cannot concentract in any activity even i can't make prayer on time. everything i will postpond it. finally i will realize it on what i did is very bad, and i will decide that i will not repeat again, but i will continue this habit again. many time i was decided i willl not watch such things, buyt now everything become out of my control. please advise, should i consult with any doctor, some times i will thing why the God given such sexual power to the human to lead the people do the mistakes?. is there any treatment available to overcome this issue and become a pefect man.

Hi shafiktp,

Thank you for your question-- It takes a lot of courage to accept that you may have a sexual addiction. I would encourage you to bring this up to your doctor, perhaps s/he can refer you to a therapist that can definitely help you. One thing I do want to say, though, is that there is no such thing as a perfect man or woman. Most men and women do get aroused at the site of the opposite sex nude and this is normal-- the only reason why this may be considered an addiction is because it is affecting your other activities of daily living. However, I don't want you to believe that thinking about sex every now and again is not normal when in fact it is. 

Wishing you the best,
