Where do I go from here?
You are not alone. Thousands of unsuspecting people wake up
every day to discover their loved one, the one person that they
are supposed to trust completely, has been living a life of lies
and deceit because they suffer from a disease - a disease called
sex addiction. Stefanie Carnes brings together several authors
to guide the reader through an assortment of topics like “How Do
I Handle This?” and “What Do I Tell the Kids?”
Authors included are:

The chapter I wrote is Straight Guise: Is My Partner Gay?
This chapter will help the partners of these men, first by
separating the two types of men: men who are gay and bisexual;
and men who are heterosexual who seek sex with other men. The
difference is one of sexual orientation versus sexual
preference. It will also help women develop a deeper
understanding of their partners’ behaviors and recognize that it
can have many meanings, and that it may not mean the
relationship has to end.
It will answer the following questions:
What does it mean when men seek sex with other men?
What are some reasons men have sex with other men?
What is erotic intelligence?
Why did I marry a gay man?
What does my family history have to do with this?
“The Seven-Year Switch”: The Gradually Gay Husband. Why do
Marry Straight Women?
Disclosure: How Do I Go From the Down Low to In The Know?
On some level, I feel as though this is my fault. How do I
keep from blaming myself?
Now that I know, where do I go from here?
