Out of the Shadows was well written and informative. It helps to explain why those with sexual addiction do what they do. I don't like the theory that they can't help It or that they are too ashamed to get help-but I don't believe that has any bearing on the content written by this author.

Good for basic knowledge of sex addictions and co dependents! It summarizes the category, classifications and types of sex addictions! Even normal people should read this book to understand that everybody is prone to this kind or any kind of addictions!

American lecturer and behavior therapist for addiction/recovery Patrick J. Carnes, Ph.D. (counselor education/organizational development), C.A.S. (1944- ), authored "Out of the Shadows" (formerly "The Sex Addiction") in 1983. It is 173 pages and includes diagrams and charts, but no index.

In his book he outlines the sexual addiction cycle of preoccupation, ritualization, compulsive behavior and despair.

The levels of addiction are then probed, which could start with and involve self stimulation, promiscuity, prostitution, or pornography. Note that pornography does not make people what they are; people make the pornography. (Carnes says addicts can even obsess over innocent, artistic photos of nudes.)

It should be pointed out then that what one could extol pornography for is the fact that its sexual phantasmagorias exemplify at least some truth found in the interactions between human beings. Where there is sincere expression in the genital embrace captured on a film or picture, there might be some affection and warmth, however specious, regardless of the usurious intentions of some pornography producers. It might also be said that one with a florid imagination could project some feeling onto what is seen, or make a meaningful introjection of what they see being done. One can never expect such powerful emotions to be spontaneously evident in actors or actresses who have just met before the filming of a pornographic production. It is up to the viewer to transcend the mundane biological by creating a mystico-euphoric solitude, though their ego is isolated from the real event. A retrospective awareness of any former real experience one has had may cement a union in thought with one's present state of sexual being. Pornography then serves to complement and enrich one's fantasies in lieu of bowdlerizing them. This would preclude some of the alienation described below. Such a pseudo-preservation of immortality could hardly be considered obscene either. What is obscene is man's truculence towards his fellow man, which paradoxically, has always been not only condoned, but rewarded as well.

In the second level of sexual addiction one could graduate to peeping, exhibitionism, or making obscene phone calls. The third level is most damaging, wherein the addict could perpetrate pedophilia, incest, or rape.

Carnes then delves the role of the family in the sexual addict's life, with the issue of co-addiction following.

Then the author describes the addict's core belief system and impaired thinking, wherein he avouches, "...addicts do not perceive themselves as worthwhile.... Nor...believe...people would care for them or meet their needs if everything was known about them....they believe...sex is their most important need. Sex...makes isolation bearable." This aloneness leads to alienation, and, "...as a way of life is an expression of our inability to relate to people...." according to American clinical psychologist/therapist Allan Fromme, Ph.D., in his work, "Our Troubled Selves" (1967).

Discussed next, Twelve Step group programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and its outgrowth--which detects sexually addictive behavior(s)--through the "SAFE" formula: SECRET - not publicly sanctioned; ABUSIVE -deleterious and exploitative; FEELINGS - mood altering; EMPTY - uncaring and uncommitted. Such groups bolster the addict's self esteem; communicate acceptance of him, by allaying his fears; convince him that dependence on others is fine, by maintaining intimacy and that sex isn't paramount (but, unlike AA, one needn't be an abstainer, either).

And lastly, the future for the addict is covered.

"Out of the Shadows" by Patrick Carnes is the quintessential volume on dealing with sexual addiction, where "loneliness wheels itself across the American landscape."
