What to do
Understand that sex addiction is real. The consequences on the partner of a sex addict are typically lower self-esteem, depression and weight gain. In some cases, you might contract one or more STDs.
Empower yourself. Ask him how often he is masturbating and viewing porn. If he thinks he might be a sex addict, ask him to take the 6 Types of Sex Addicts Test. Once he knows what type he is, he can get real help.
If he doesn't want help, strap yourself in for the ride of your life because addictions only get worse over time. He will find it easier with time to cross the lines into cheating and creating pain for you.
