I have been dealing with this issue with my husband for 7 years, and have only now begun to understand it. Sexual addiction is becoming more widely diagnosed. It is really not about sex, rather it is a coping device for emotional issues stemming from many years back. I suggest that you seek a therapist for not only him, but for you as well. I can tell you that until he sees it as a problem, he will not seek help. It IS an addiction, not too far removed from alcoholism and drugs. Check on-line to using "sexual addiction and recovery" to find national groups as well. Do NOT just shrug this off and think it will fix itself. Good luck.
