CSBD is an umbrella term that can be used to diagnose people struggling with porn addiction and sex addiction.

The ICD-11 is the most recent edition of the WHO's International Classification of Diseases, used by doctors worldwide. No doubt the DSM-5 (the mental health manual often promoted/used in the States...because the APA makes money from holding its copyright) will have to follow suit...eventually.

Have you read "Cheap Sex" by Regnerus?

I think everyone on this forum would find it fascinating reading. Here's my review from Amazon:

“Cheap Sex” is a clear-eyed assessment of sexual activity, mating and bonding in US culture. Well written, well edited and well grounded in both quantitative and qualitative research, this book expertly and compassionately lays out the less obvious (and largely unintended) effects of reproductive freedom and technologically enhanced “cheap sex.” A recurring theme in the book is that more and hotter orgasms with more partners are paradoxically associated with increasing loneliness across the population.
