Strip Club Addiction
About our Strip Club Addiction Treatment
Strip Club Addiction is a sad and lonely disorder, and I have helped clients let go of this expensive and paradoxically isolating behavior. Strip Club Addiction is disruptive to the clients life, actual responsibilities, and interferes with the client developing a reality based romantic, social, and sexual life. My clients who have engaged in this behavior have often had other similar commercialized sexual behaviors they needed my help with. In addiction to the leaving this behavior behind, my other goal I typically have have for clients is to have a real world life, not based on deception by others, self deception, and the client paying person’s for the illusion of a human connection. I have had great success in this.
I will include some description of this behavior below. For many, right or wrong, a visit to a strip club was a right of passage. Sadly, these places and behaviors are often considered a part of our culture. This behavior is not what we want of our sons and daughters to do, but engaging in it does not by itself mean sexual addiction is present. The strip club addicts are the regulars, who know the dancers “stage names”, and maybe even the dancers actual names. The bar staff may know the addicts name, the door staff may know the addicts name. The addicts are there for hours. The addicts are there alone. It’s a ritual for the addict.
Strip Club addicts get themselves confused as to “roles” in the club. Some addicts successfully succeed in socially connecting with a dancer, and then the Strip Club addict thinks they are “friends” with the dancer. Strip Club addicts give away money, do favors, and do strange chores such as long drives state to state to other strip venues, all this seeking the “love” of a dancer. The addict not seeing the dancers don’t really feel for him, and the addict is not seeing he does not actually respect the dancer. She is an object. The Strip Club addict burns through time, money, and energy in this fake environment. All this while actual life is going by, real opportunities ignored, real obligations unattended to, real persons in his live forgotten and suffering and sometimes financially doing without.
