1777 men surveyed. This study examined the prevalence of the risk for sex addiction within the context of sexual orientation and personality in Israeli men and validated the Hebrew Bergen Yale Sex Addiction Scale (HBYSAS). Results showed that the HBYSAS is appropriate for assessing the risk for sex addiction in Israeli men. Furthermore, results showed that sex addiction varied with individuals’ sexual orientation while being modestly associated with neuroticism and conscientiousness.
