This chapter will examine the existing literature regarding the impact of sexual addiction and compulsive (SA&C) sexual behaviour on the couple relationship. As referenced in the introduction, the term ‘couple’ refers to two people who have a romantic or sexual relationship. This definition may include a wife and husband, boyfriend and girlfriend or a same sex couple, to name a few examples. This literature review will first aim to provide the reader with some context by defining the key operational and definitional terms for sex addiction, compulsive sexual behaviour and hypersexual disorder. This definition will extend to examining relational betrayal (infidelity) in the context of the couple relationship. Secondly it will outline a range of therapeutic perspectives that attempt to explain the influence of addiction on the couple relationship. These are, namely: (a) psychoanalytic and psychodynamic (b) systemic (c) cognitive-behavioural (d) and existential perspectives. The final part of this section will review literature relating to theories of trauma, posttraumatic stress and neuroscience and dopamine dysregulation in addition to more recent literature on attachment and shame. Consideration will be given to a range of diverse sexualities. Contemporary research that is focused away from the traditional medical model of mental distress and instead includes a renewed focus on developments in positive psychology such as the links between trauma and posttraumatic growth will also be elucidated. The review will conclude with a consideration of some of the limitations and gaps in the literature. It will cover a period stretching back from the present day until approximately 25 years ago because there was little, if any, literature on the subject before then.
