SAGE Research Methods Cases
Sexual addiction issues have concerned the evangelical community for years, evidenced by the creation of self-help literature, men's movements, and sex manuals that continue to multiply today. The purpose of this research was to examine the lived experiences of evangelical Christian men who self-identify as sex addicts. This qualitative method was phenomenological, focusing on the lived experiences of participants. Analysis of individual interviews and follow-up individual interviews of eight self-identified evangelical male sex addicts required the creation of meaning units and narratives. Heideggarian philosophy served as the groundwork for this research.
