Sexual Addiction or Bipolar Mania? Facets of Sexual Compulsivity in Those Experiencing Bipolar Mania.
This will be a roundtable discussion about sexual compulsivity in those experiencing bipolar mania and if this sexual compulsivity is tantamount to sexual addiction or sexual trauma and if it should be treated as such or as separate entities. We are aware of universal themes of bipolar disorder. However, those who deal with it do so in their own unique way of how they experience it for themselves. Bipolar mania can take many different shapes and forms for those who deal with or suffer from it, and as we know, there are many different types and levels of severity of bipolar disorder. In this round table discussion, we are trying to pinpoint sexually compulsive behavior in those with bipolar mania and if this behavior could or should be classified and treated as a sexual addiction. The moderator will submit research supporting the existence of sexual addiction and attendees are encouraged to bring supporting research to discuss their position on how sexually compulsive behavior in those with bipolar mania should be treated.
