The news article this blog entry is devoted to reports on a the subject of Sex Addiction. The article discusses how there is disagreement about sexual addiction even being a real medical problem, then lists various hypothesized causes for sexual addiction by scientists who believe the problem is real.

This is another example of that shows Scientists R Stoopid.

Sexual addiction is a real health problem. Sexual addiction is caused by the physical changes the body undergoes during sex becoming semi permanent. The body will “freeze” or “get stuck” in a posture that is associated with sexual excitation.

The sex addict is literally feeling sexual stimulation every moment of every day from the posture they hold when they sit and stand, and the way they move during the day to accomplish tasks. That constant sexual stimulation is so strong that the individuals naturally want to engage in some sort of sex act to relieve the feelings of stimulation.

“Curing” a sex addict would consist of having the individual engage in any kind of physical activity that softens and relaxes the body. The areas of the body that have hardened because of sexual activity would need to be identified so special attention could be given to them.

The process will take quite a while. The general rule of thumb for physically changing a human body is that however long it took to produce a change in the body, it will take an equal amount of time to remove that bodily change.

The original news story is reprinted next.

Is extreme sexual acting out an obsessive-compulsive disorder, a sign of depression or just bad behavior? ‘If we are looking at a disorder, it’s not clear what that disorder is,’ one expert says

Tiger Woods, who recently admitted to multiple extramarital affairs, said he is receiving treatment. David Duchovny, who plays a sex-obsessed professor on the TV show “Californication,” underwent rehab in 2008. Dr. Drew Pinsky has launched a reality series dealing with the subject.

Sex addiction talk seems to be everywhere. But mental health experts are split on what underlies such behavior.

The American Psychiatric Assn. has proposed that out-of-control sexual appetites be included as a diagnosis in the next edition of the psychiatrists’ bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, to be published in 2013.

Unlike compulsive gambling, which also is proposed for addition to the new DSM (to be called DSM-5), the proposed diagnosis — hypersexual disorder — stops short of categorizing the problem as an addiction, and for a reason.

“If we are looking at a disorder, it’s not clear what that disorder is,” said Michael Miner, a professor of family medicine and community health at the University of Minnesota who advised the DSM-5 committee on sexual disorders. “There is not an agreed-upon name. The research is in its infancy.”

Patterns of extreme sexual acting out are described variously by therapists as an addiction, as a type of obsessive-compulsive disorder or as a symptom of another psychiatric illness, such as depression.

The lines specialists draw between what is sexually normal or abnormal have long been in flux. Some behaviors, such as pedophilia, are almost universally considered abnormal and have been described in the DSM for decades. Homosexuality was once considered deviant, but that reference was dropped from the DSM decades ago.

Therapists who see patients — mostly men — with problems caused by repetitive sexual behaviors, whether sex with consenting adults, pornography or cyber-sex, said the addition of a hypersexual behavior category was long overdue.

“There is no doubt in my mind that this condition exists and that it’s serious,” said Dr. Martin P. Kafka, an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard University who was a member of the DSM-5 work group on sexual disorders.

“There are definitely men who are consumed by porn or consumed by sex with consenting adults — who have multiple affairs or multiple prostitutes. The consequences associated with this behavior are very significant, including divorce, pregnancy” and sexually transmitted disease, he said.

Some studies suggest that hypersexual behavior is indeed similar to an addiction, akin to the loss of control that seizes compulsive gamblers or shoppers.

For example, in a 1997 survey of 53 self-identified sex addicts in a 12-step recovery program, 98% said they had three or more withdrawal symptoms, 94% that they had tried unsuccessfully to control their behavior and 92% that they spent more time engaging in sexual behavior than they intended to.

In addition, screening tests designed for sexually addicted individuals have also been shown to accurately identify people with substance abuse problems, implying that the disorders have similarities.

Based on the addiction model, several sex addiction treatment centers have opened in recent years — including Pine Grove in Hattiesburg, Miss., where rumors have placed Woods. Twelve-step programs, often the foundation of substance abuse treatment, are a staple of such facilities.

But they may not reach far enough, Kafka said. Many patients with hypersexual behavior relapse after 12-step programs, he said, because they haven’t addressed other issues in their lives. He believes that certain moods or psychiatric conditions cause sexual behavior to become disinhibited and abnormal.

In a 2004 study of 31 self-defined sex addicts, for example, researchers at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University found that most of the individuals had an increased interest in sex when they were in depressed or anxious emotional states.

The ramped-up sexual behavior may be linked to changes in levels of key brain chemicals, such as serotonin, that occur when people experience mood disorders, some scientists think. These chemical changes might lift sexual inhibitions.

Impulsivity scores are also higher in sexually overcharged men, Miner and colleagues found in a study comparing eight men with compulsive sexual behavior to a control group.

The report, published in November in the journal Psychiatry Research, was one of the few studies to examine the brain physiology of such individuals. It showed that the hypersexual men had distinct patterns of activity in the frontal lobe region of the brain. The pattern, however, did not match that of patients diagnosed with other kinds of impulse control problems.

Maureen Canning, director of the sexual disorders program at the Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg, Ariz., has another theory.

Based on anecdotal experience, she said, she believes that trauma in childhood, such as sexual abuse or witnessing of sexual behavior, disrupts normal development and drives hypersexuality in adulthood.

“When these children grow up . . . they become obsessed about correcting the trauma,” said Canning, author of the 2008 book “Lust, Anger, Love: Understanding Sexual Addiction and the Road to Healthy Intimacy.”

Attempting to understand what causes hypersexual behavior goes beyond curiosity: It lies at the heart of crafting effective treatments. But there are few studies on what works, Kafka said.

Meanwhile, some outspoken critics doubt that hypersexual behavior is a disorder at all. They argue against creating a label that can stigmatize people or provide excuses for what is plain poor conduct.

It’s alarming “for a group of psychiatrists to try to legislate how much sex we can enjoy before we’re labeled mentally ill,” said Christopher Lane, a Northwestern University literature professor and author of a 2007 book criticizing mental health professionals for ever-expanding ideas of what constitutes abnormal behavior.

Lane suggested that the rush to reclassify some behaviors as treatable conditions was driven in part by business interests: Treatment centers pop up. The pharmaceutical industry offers pills as remedies.

What is out-of-bounds sexual activity varies by culture, Miner said.

“Sex in the United States is a very odd phenomenon. We are probably one of the more sexualized societies in the world and also one of the most puritanical,” he said. “You wonder, if Tiger Woods was a French golfer, whether this . . . would have been such a big deal.”

A Primer on how the Human Body works

by

Jalon Anderson

This book was written for people involved in Martial Arts, Yoga, Pilates, or other physical disciplines that are designed to move people to a higher level of existence. Those exercises will change a person’s body dramatically, causing many new and unfamiliar sensations.

The body views contained in this book provide a way to verbalize or conceptualize the new physical sensations the practitioner may be feeling. This is not trivial. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the physical sensations that the practice of Yoga, martial arts, Pilates, or a similar practice can produce. The exercises are also designed to cause emotional upheaval and intellectual confusion as part of the process of uplifting the practitioner. Those are normal and expected effects.

For various reasons, the normal emotional upheaval and intellectual confusion can be too much for the practitioner to deal with. Excessive training, a weak constitution unable to handle the training, illness that changes or interferes with the effects of the training, a natural sensitivity to the exercises, or performing the exercises incorrectly, are all reasons that the normal positive changing effects of Yoga, martial arts, etc, can cause the practitioner problems in their life.

The body views presented in this book offer a way to alleviate any confusion or emotional overload the practitioner may be feeling. The simple act of putting words and pictures to the complex physical sensations the practitioner is feeling will calm the mind. The calm mind can then deal with the emotional upheaval more effectively.

The body views in this book also have a concrete and practical use. They can be employed in everyday life to evaluate the body of another person for strength or weakness. They can be used to diagnose health problems in people. They can be used to explain various legends and ideas from human cultures around the world. They also offer insight into the properties of the human body that are the basis for martial arts, Yoga, Pilates, and other body changing disciplines.

This book is interesting and useful to anyone. Not just people who are currently training in one of the arts listed, or people experiencing problems from that training. There are ideas in this book that should make a person’s eyes open in wonder. The ideas in this book could spur the curiosity of the casual reader enough that they may decide to do some serious investigation of these body changing disciplines for themselves. That is a life changing decision to make.

All Human Inventions

are based on the human body

by

Jalon Anderson

Happeh Theory is a collection of theories and insights into the construction and function of the human body. According to Happeh Theory, all of the inventions ever created by human beings are based on the human body. These inventions can be based on actual physical structures within the human body. Or the inventions can be based on sensations produced by the human body.

This book is devoted to examples of this theory.

Happeh Theory – A Linear Approach

by

Jalon Anderson

———————————————————————————————-

Happeh Theory is concerned with the function and construction of the human body. Happeh Theory employs a combination of real life facts in conjunction with purely theoretical models, to provide insight that is useful to regular people into the function and construction of the human body.

Happeh Theory is heavily influenced by Asian philosophy and culture. Asian culture and thought is difficult to comprehend for many western people. The Asian way of thinking is almost completely opposite from the way that western people think.

Many concepts from Happeh Theory are an attempt to translate Asian thought into something more familiar, or more suited to, the way a modern technological minded western person thinks. These ideas have been accepted and believed by Asian people for centuries. Their entire culture and their daily lives are influenced
by these ideas.

Happeh Theory is focused on the martial arts and the affects on the body caused by performing martial arts. The inspiration for Happeh Theory was the author’s own confusion at the sensations his body provided him with after years of martial arts practice. The explanations provided by the author’s Asian instructors made
no sense at all according to the western scientific view of the world.

This particular book is an attempt to reach people who think in a scientific way. Happeh Theory is usually presented as a random collection of seemingly unconnected ideas. That method will train a person to think in a beneficial way. Information presented using the random method can be hard to accept for scientifically minded people who are trained to be linear thinking and organized.

This book has been written in a style that mimics a simple lab manual for a school science class. The concepts are presented in a linear way with simple pictures for illustration. Perhaps the familiar style and simplicity of the book will make the information more palatable for the scientifically inclined reader.
