Dysfunctional use of cybersex has often been conceptualized as a ‘behavioral addiction’ sharing common traits with substance addiction. We describe the case of a treatment-seeking man, who displayed addictive use of pornography. The case is presented from two perspectives: (1) a symptom-based approach inspired by the addiction model of excessive se...
