Background and aims

Compulsive sexual behavior (CSB) is a common disorder featuring repetitive, intrusive and distressing sexual thoughts, urges and behaviors that negatively affect many aspects of an individual’s life.

Methods

We reviewed the literature regarding the clinical aspects of CSB and treatment approaches.
