Technology has significantly changed our world. Sexual imagery and encounters can now be accessed anywhere, anytime, using portable electronic devices. Users can generate a stream of graphic pornography, a wide variety of virtual sexual activities, and casual, anonymous, or paid-for sexual encounters with a click or a tap. We now have greater access to highly stimulating sexual content and potential sexual partners with much less built-in accountability. Porn addicts are especially vulnerable to the lure of digital technology and the seemingly endless array of stimulation it provides. Research suggests that cyber-porn addicts spend at least eleven or twelve hours per week online viewing porn. Today, all forms of sex addiction are technology driven—from porn websites to webcams to casual sex hook-up apps via smartphones. Sex addicts organize their lives around the pursuit of sexual activity with self or others, spending inordinate amounts of time viewing and masturbating to porn or planning, pursuing, and engaging in sex acts. At the same time, they neglect important relationships, work, and personal responsibilities. Overwhelming feelings of guilt, shame, and remorse invade when the acting out ends. While it's complicated, recovery is possible. Always Turned On shows readers how to turn those temptations off while providing practical long-term solutions for recovery.

As technology and the internet have become more accessible, the number of affordable, easy links to pleasurable sexual content and activity has increased with it, and so too has the number of people struggling with sex, porn, and love addiction.

Sex Addiction 101 is intended to enlighten the clinical population as well as actual sex addicts and their loved ones. Along with his mentor Patrick Carnes, Weiss has become the face of and driving force behind understanding and treating sexual addiction; this book should be a core title in every addiction collection.

The concept of sexual addiction has gained increasing recognition in the academic and healthcare communities since the 1990s. It has also captured the attention of the media, where there has been much debate over whether it can truly be described as an addiction. What is certain is that many people struggle with out of control sexual behaviour, which takes over their lives and has harmful consequences for their relationships, careers and finances. The Routledge International Handbook of Sexual Addiction brings together a comprehensive range of perspectives on sexual addiction from a worldwide selection of scholars and therapists. It sets out to define sexual addiction and to study its causes from a range of different psychological perspectives. A series of presentations of sexual addiction are outlined, including internet sexual addiction and the relationship between paraphilias and sex addiction. The handbook considers both individual and group treatment strategies, drawing on a wide range of approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and 12-step programmes. The book studies sex addiction in specific populations including women, adolescents and men who have sex with men. Finally, it considers some of the alternative discourses surrounding the concept of sexual addiction. This is the first comprehensive reference book to bring together global viewpoints on advances in research, theory and practice in one volume. This handbook provides an essential guide for academics and students of psychotherapy, counselling, nursing, addiction, sexualities, social work and health and social care, as well as professionals in practice and in training working with sexual addiction and related issues.

Drogen im Dritten Reich – »dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild« (Hans Mommsen) Über Drogen im Dritten Reich ist bislang wenig bekannt. Norman Ohler geht den Tätern von damals buchstäblich unter die Haut und schaut direkt in ihre Blutbahnen hinein. Arisch rein ging es darin nicht zu, sondern chemisch deutsch – und ziemlich toxisch. Wo die Ideologie für Fanatismus und »Endsieg« nicht mehr ausreichte, wurde hemmungslos nachgeholfen, während man offiziell eine strikte Politik der »Rauschgiftbekämpfung« betrieb. Als Deutschland 1940 Frankreich überfiel, standen die Soldaten der Wehrmacht unter 35 Millionen Dosierungen Pervitin. Das Präparat – heute als Crystal Meth bekannt – war damals in jeder Apotheke erhältlich, machte den Blitzkrieg erst möglich und wurde zur Volksdroge im NS-Staat. Auch der vermeintliche Abstinenzler Hitler griff gerne zur pharmakologischen Stimulanz: Als er im Winter 1944 seine letzte Offensive befehligte, kannte er längst keine nüchternen Tage mehr. Schier pausenlos erhielt er von seinem Leibarzt Theo Morell verschiedenste Dopingmittel, dubiose Hormonpräparate und auch harte Drogen gespritzt. Nur so konnte der Diktator seinen Wahn bis zum Schluss aufrechterhalten. Ohler hat bislang gesperrte Materialien ausgewertet, mit Zeitzeugen, Militärhistorikern und Medizinern gesprochen. Entstanden ist ein erschütterndes, faktengenaues Buch. Der totale Rausch wurde von dem bedeutenden Historiker Hans Mommsen begleitet, der das Nachwort beisteuert. Sein Fazit: »Dieses Buch ändert das Gesamtbild.«

It's a loving spouse's worst nightmare: standing by, helpless, as your partner seeks sexual attention from others-a discovery that quickly turns to shame and regret. If only you were prettier or more exciting, maybe you could keep his attention. If only you earned more money, maybe she would be attracted to you. But the truth is that, for many, online and real-life infidelity is an addiction-a compulsive need for other sexual partners, as intoxicating as any bottle or pill. And with the rise of websites and smartphone apps, getting the next fix is often just a click or screen tap away. Author Jennifer P. Schneider, MD, broke new ground in Back from Betrayal as one of the first to address sex addiction in relationships, as well as the traumatic experiences faced by the partners of men and women who compulsively lie and cheat. Now in its fourth edition, the book is updated to reflect the latest knowledge regarding infidelity and contains chapters covering the unique challenges of sex addiction in the digital age. Now more than ever, Schneider provides a voice for those struggling with this devastating issue-and offers much-needed hope toward recovery and healing.

Google, Facebook, E-mail und Online-Games haben unser Leben fest im Griff. Wie wird unsere Zukunft aussehen? Wir wollten sie als smarte „Diener“ unseres Alltags, nun sind sie unsere Herren. Sie sollten uns helfen, Zeit zu sparen, nun sind sie zu Zeitfressern sondergleichen geworden. Wir wollten sie programmieren, jetzt programmieren sie uns. Wenn insbesondere junge Leute hemmungslos in Blogs, Chats, Kontaktforen und Onlinewelten abtauchen, hat das einen tieferen Psychologischen Grund: Menschliche Beziehungen erscheinen zunehmend kompliziert und verletzend. Dafür bietet das Netz Kontakt ohne wahre Intimität, Gemeinschaft ohne Risiko, Nähe mit ausreichendem Sicherheitsabstand. Der moderne Mensch hat oft 100 Facebook-Friends, aber keinen einzigen echten Freund. Computer und Internet geben uns die Freiheit, überall zu arbeiten – in Wahrheit sind wir überall „gemeinsam einsam“. Sherry Turkle zeigt, wie Technologien zunehmend die Funktionsweise unseres Geistes und unser Gefühlsleben beeinflussen. Sie führt uns mit aktuellen Studien und drastischen Fallbeispielen vor Augen, welche ernsten Konsequenzen die gedankenlose Hingabe an die digitalen Verführer hat. Aber sie verdammt die Cyberwelt keineswegs als Teufelszeug. Denn wir haben durchaus die Chance, ihre immer grenzenloseren Möglichkeiten verantwortungsvoll zu nutzen.
