This survey is part of a research study being conducted by Dr. Stefanie Carnes. The purpose of the study is to learn about how sexual addiction impacts the sexuality of the partner of the sex addict, with the long term goal of helping partners and couples recover.
There are several benefits you may experience as a result of your participation in this study. The first benefit is knowing you are advancing research in the field of sex addiction. The second is that you may experience some insights about how your sexuality has been impacted by the addiction. And finally, at the end of the survey, you will receive a brief report, free of charge, that outlines areas of your sexuality that may have been impacted by the addiction.
Here are my results:
|Category||Little/No Impact||Minor Impact||Moderate Impact||Strong Impact||Very Strong Impact|
|Feelings of Victimization||X|
|Body Image Issues||X|
Feelings of Victimization — Strong
This subscale indicates that you may have feelings of betrayal and emotional trauma that could be impacting your ability to be sexually open and vulnerable in your relationship.
Body Image Issues — Strong
Elevations on this subscale indicate feelings of insecurity about your body, such as feelings of inferiority when being compared with others, and a desire to change your body.
If you have an SA in your life, try taking it and saving your results. I’m going to do it again in 6 months and see if anything has changed.
More info on our weekend will be forthcoming soon. I just wanted to get something out to you guys that I found interesting. I hope that everyone had a nice weekend!
