Understanding Compulsive Sexual Behavior in Underrepresented Groups

Research examining predictors, outcomes, and covariates of Compulsive Sexual Behavior (CSB) has increased in recent years. Despite these advances, the extant scientific literature has overwhelmingly examined CSB from the perspective of White (European), Heterosexual, Cisgender Male participants. While such research has led to the development of empirically supported models, significant gaps remain regarding the validity of these models in underrepresented populations (including, but not limited to, gender, sexual, and racial minoritized groups). Moreover, sophisticated CSB models that better account for the diversity of identities represented across societies are needed.

To address this issue, we are inviting original article submissions for an upcoming special issue in Sexual Health & Compulsivity entitled: Understanding Compulsive Sexual Behavior in Underrepresented Groups. We are specifically interested in research articles that extend established theoretical models to underrepresented groups or propose alternative models that better account for CSB in diverse groups. Particularly, we are seeking research that advances our understanding of CSB in populations of women, gender nonconforming, non-heterosexual, and ethnically diverse individuals. Studies that examine CSB from an intersectional perspective are especially welcome.

Multiple study designs are invited, including quantitative, qualitative, experimental, case study, and mixed method frameworks. Submissions that report original data are preferred.
