Abstract: Considerable attention has been given to the subject of Compulsive Sexual Behaviour (CSB) by public and academic interests in the last five years. Much of this attention is highly negative. However, CSB a s a personal and societal problem is widespread in western culture. It can be broadly linked to family violence, societal sexism, and to major criminal activity. This study identifies the lived realities of three men which are key to their recovery from various manifestations of compulsive sexual behaviours. The participants are all from local twelve step programs oriented towards healing from CSB . The study uses life history interviews and critical incident identification to gather information, and hermeneutical analysis to distill it. The key elements of recovery found in these men are compared with those proposed in available conceptual and theoretical research.
