Sexual compulsivity means any sexual behavior in an individual, persisting over time despite numerous repetitive attempts to stop it, causing clinically significant levels of stress to the individual (Del Giudice & Kutinsky, 2007).
Pathological gambling was also found to be highly correlated to sexual compulsivity, significantly higher in male than in female gamblers (Grant & Steinberg, 2005).This kind of study is particularly interesting since, in the Balkans, such a phenomenon is not well recognized as problematic and uncontrolled sexual behavior is seen as extremely negative in females, but extremely positive in males, which is also the case in other cultures (Caroll, 2007).Emphasizing this problem among young students could motivate other researchers to broadly explore sexuality issues in young populations in these two countries on an even wider scale, especially since sexual compulsive behavior does not have a place in the current mental disorders classification systems.Results indicated positive, significant but low correlations between sexual compulsivity and depression; sexual compulsivity and anxiety; and sexual compulsivity and substance use; whereas a low, negative but significant correlation was obtained between sexual compulsivity and self-esteem. *Corresponding author at: Dragodol 27, 75 000 Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina.The strongest predictor of sexual compulsivity was drug use; two other significant predictors were alcohol and depression.

However, we must consider the fact that depression is frequently comorbid with other psychological disorders (First, 2005), not only with sexual compulsivity.
Anxiety reduction can be linked to sexual behavior through early learning processes, meaning that, when anxiety levels increase, a need to reduce it through some kind of sexual behavior or encounter becomes strong (Gold & Heffner, 1998).
However, reduced anxiety is only temporary and when it reoccurs, previous sexual behaviors are not sufficient to reduce high anxiety levels, so additional sexual practices may occur (Berberovic, 2012).
Blankenship and Laaser (2004) revealed several common characteristics in ADHD persons and sexual compulsives.
Moskowitz and Roloff (2007) proposed two sexual compulsivity etiology perspectives.
Its importance lies in the fact that it explores only young people from 19 to 25 years of age, while previous studies used a broader age range (i.e., from 18 to 65) when exploring sexual compulsivity.
