I read somewhere that a psychologist in 1949 (or somewhere around that) described sexual addiction as a release. I don't remember the author's name nor the title of the paper.

The gist of that paper was that sexual addiction is not about emotions, no intimacy but it's all about a release of a chemical. And I read in the comments that this idea was followed by universities researchers for a long time.

Any help will be much appreciated.

P.S. : Let me know if this question is off-topic.
