You are about to complete the Sexual Addictions Screening Test (SAST) designed by Patrick Carnes.  The SAST is designed to assist in the assessment of sexually compulsive behavior which may indicate the presence of sex addiction or problematic sexual activity. Developed in cooperation with hospitals, treatment programs, private therapists, and community groups, the SAST provides a profile of responses that help to discriminate between addictive and non-addictive behavior.

The SAST consists of 26 yes or no questions.  Do not spend a great deal of time trying to analyze the question.  It is probably best to go with your first thought.

You may begin the assessment at any time.
