Whoever put reference n. 1 is completely wrong. The reference says that homosexuality (as well as sex between man and woman) can lead to addiction, not that homosexuality is an addiction. I thought that editors in this Trustworthy Encyclopedia could at the very least read! --KaraMel 12:34, 13 November 2008 (EST)

I didn't see that. Why didn't you quote it? --Ed Poor Talk 12:48, 13 November 2008 (EST)
She(he?)'s blocked now, but a literal interpretation of "a homosexual addiction will result" reads that homosexuality can be an addiction, not that homosexuality is an addiction. Additionally, the source says that you can get "addicted" to other sexual relationships, such as those with your wife, or in an extramarital affair, or even pornography. The source isn't limiting to just homosexuality. HelpJazz 14:22, 13 November 2008 (EST)
Here's the quote: "If sexual experiences happen outside of marriage and are constantly repeated, a sex act can move from being a simple pleasure to an addiction. Instead of being bonded with a person, you become bonded to the act itself. If the sexual experiences are pornography, your flesh will instantly recall the images you viewed for "re-lusting" purposes. These images are stamped into your brain with the aid of hormones released during sexual arousal". HelpJazz 14:24, 13 November 2008 (EST)
Neither the article or cited reference explain how homosexual activity is more likely to lead to addiction than heterosexual activity. In fact sexual addiction is fairly common among heterosexuals. Sideways 15:07, 13 November 2008 (EST)
I don't see how this article can be reconciled with the quotes above. Maybe it should be titled "Sexuality and alcoholism". HelpJazz 21:33, 14 November 2008 (EST)

"Professionals treat both addictions as diseases." Which professionals? Ed, I'd like to see a citation for this. --SStaples 21:36, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

I don't see the point of this article. When I read the title I expected to find information on a correlation between alcoholism and homosexuality. People may become addicted to many things, but do we need an article for every pair of addictions? Video games and Opium? Even worse, we seem to have lost the source describing homosexuality as an addiction; I get a 404 error. Yoritomo 19:38, 12 December 2009 (EST)
