The Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) is designed to assist in the assessment of sexually compulsive behavior which may indicate the presence of sex addiction. Developed in cooperation with hospitals, treatment programs, private therapists, and community groups, the SAST provides a profile of responses which help to discriminate between addictive and non-addictive behavior.

We strongly urge that diagnosis and treatment be done with a trained professional. This assessment is designed to help you decide whether you should seek further help.

Thank you for completing the SAST. Your final score, which is the total of all the questions you answered "yes" to, is {{var_score}}. 

This is NOT where you rank on our subjective sexual struggle scale of 1-10 that we sometimes refer to. 

But based on your score, if your responses represent current, ongoing behaviors, your sexual behavior is definitely an area of concern. Your score of {{var_score}} is similar to that of other men who struggle with sexually addictive and compulsive behaviors, many of whom have chosen to seek help.
