Lack of sexual self-control can manifest itself in the form of excessive use of porn sites, phone sex, and strip bars; it can lead to multiple infidelities, risky sexual behavior, bankruptcy, or the loss of a job due to their out-of-control behaviors. This book is addressed to anyone with a lack of sexual self-control who feels their behavior is interfering with their relationship, job, and reputation.
