Abstract

This study explored the features of non-paraphilic compulsive sexual behavior (NPCSB) in a community sample of 183 gay and bisexual men in New York City who reported difficulty controlling their sexual behavior. Several diagnostic and face valid measures of NPCSB and Axis I comorbidity were administered. Results indicated that NPCSB is associated with a range of problem behaviors, a fairly coherent pattern of symptoms that can be assessed with good inter-rater reliability, is distinct from other related disorders, and provides a moderate fit to the dependence model but with other unique features. Implications for classification and treatment will be discussed.
