Many people ask me if there is such a thing as SEX addiction, yes there is. Sex addiction is also known as hyper-sexuality and it can take over someone’s life and can have serious consequences because of the risks one will take to get their fix. It is a condition where an individual cannot manage their sexual behaviour, have constant sexual thoughts which affect their ability to work, find it hard to maintain relationships and the inability to maintain a normal functioning life because of sexual thoughts. 

Sex addiction is very similar to that of a drug addiction because they release the same chemicals in the brain, the only difference is drugs are substance and sex is an activity, and not getting the help you need can cause all kinds of issues such as depression, anger, anxiety and serious risk taking and unprotected sex, this is caused because the brain reward is not being met.

Sex addiction comes in many forms such as excessive use of pornography, masturbation, visiting prostitutes, excess sex and anonymous sex with strangers. This means it does not have to include penetrated sex as many assume, and neither does it mean a sex addict is a sexual predator. Sexual predators do not empathise with their victims as they do not care about their victims, they are also narcissist and usually someone who has power over others. An addict on the other hand has empathy and usually afterwards suffer self loathing which can manifest as depression or anxiety.


As there are many forms of sex addiction it also means they have different signs, however generally if someone has increasing secrecy issues with their partner, avoidance of family and loved ones, moodiness or frustration because of their sexual thoughts then this could be a sign of a sex addiction. Other signs can include:

An obsession with sex or an abnormally high sex drive

Compulsive masturbation

Persistent use of pornography

Practising unsafe casual sex

Exhibitionist or voyeurism

Becoming sexually but not emotionally involved with people you do not know and confusion between sexual attraction and love

Being involved with more than one person

Using sex to manipulate others

Destructive relationships that you keep going back too or an obsession to attract others

Jumping from one relationship to another

An awareness of your urges not matter the consequences

Sexual rage disorder, where the individual becomes distressed, anxious, restless and may turn to violence if unable to engage in their addiction

If you are concerned you may have a sex addiction the first thing is to seek help, leaving it can cause extensive damage to you and those around you. I offer complete confidential counselling and therapy sessions for individuals and couples on sex addiction.

The Live Vagina Facelift

Squeezing your pelvic floor muscles could soon be a thing of the past ladies! Yes, you have heard me right no more squats or pelvic floor time-consuming exercises to keep you in shape and here I have the evidence to prove it. Many women are eager to enhance their vagina canal muscles to maintain the tightness and muscles from the inside and surprisingly it’s painless, non intrusive and remarkably cheap to do.

Dr.Giorgia Ratta intrigued me when she offered me to join her at the AesthetiQ Skin Clinic in Kingston-Upon-Thames owned by Raheem Dad to watch the first Vagina facelift in person, otherwise known as Vagina rejuvenation. She explained that it is the ideal solution for a list of comprehensive treatments for the internal vagina canal especially as menopause and wear and tear from childbirth can leave women lose, or dry and which women wants that? Not many I can tell you.

Counsellor Kelly Berg embraced the opportunity to have the first Vagina Facelift at the Kingston-Upon-Thames clinic with the well-known Dr.Imran Malik who she got to answer her carefully chosen questions beforehand.

See raw footage below:

To see the procedure for yourself please see the raw footage below as I was surprised to witness that it was completely painless and very quick and could be done in a lunch time. This seriously is a break time treatment with long-lasting effects.

Kelly emailed me after five days with her report: (Kelly, sorry I could not edit out the blue head cover)

Sunday 1st October After treatment I had a little discomfort but nothing major. I also did a 4 hour drive straight after treatment so you can see it really is very easy to continue straight back to everyday tasks.

Monday 2nd October I had slight discomfort when urinating but think that was more to do with the products used to sterilise the area before the procedure. This was gone by midday. After this I was totally back to my usual routine.

I had planned to keep a 5 day diary about the issues I faced after the procedure however I barely encountered any, I was back in my very busy routine school runs gyms running a business etc the very next day. I am only on day 5 but can honestly recommend this very quick almost painless procedure to any woman who is suffering either with incontinence or laxity issues. It really is a life changer that you can have in your lunchtime.

For the full benefit of Vagina rejuvenation it is recommended that you have 3 treatments six weeks apart. Dr. Malik is presently offering a special offer of  417 per session which is 40% off  the original price of 695.
