Given the proven effectiveness of virtual reality in other psychopathological disorders, our study aims to evaluate the therapeutic effect of virtual reality in patients treated by cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and virtual reality compared to patients treated only by CBT.
The use of virtual reality should speed up the healing process and treat sexual addiction until complete remission of the symptoms. Normally after 25 sessions of CBT and virtual reality, we should see better therapeutic results than with just the CBT.
