English abstract
Internet is today described as a new platform for sex and sexual encounters with unlimited access to anonymous sex, cybersex and pornography due to the expansion of Internet throughout the word. Computers provide new technology and the possibility of constant access via phones, tablets and computers. Even though many people claim this is something positive it has also been discussed in terms of sexual exploitation, abuse and dependence. Risks expected to increase in line with the technological development that is taking place. The purpose of this study is therefore to explore the capacity of different health facilities to cater the need of care in regard to an increased number of people, with risk to develop a behaviour that could be classified as sex addiction. The study is based on interviews with four professionals at three different health facilities in Malmö with the intention to find out how different health facilities look at the concept of sex addiction, when a behaviour transitioning to become an addiction and what treatment they recommend. According to respondents a behaviour become an addiction when the patient/client experience the consequences of the behaviour as negative or when the behaviour becomes compulsive. In addition, all stated that they never would ascribe a patient/client as a sex addict and all were careful in their use of the term sex addiction. Additionally it became clear that there are individual differences in course of action taken by the professionals within these health facilities.
