see this page ( http://www.jenniferschneider.com/articles/diagnos.html )
for an explanation of why sexual deviancy isn't included in the DSM
guidelines.

[i found it with google, know nothing about the site owner, and am
referencing it because it cites the DSM-IV directly.]

also note table 4, which gives a brief schema for determining whether
something "counts" as an addictive behavior or not.... :)
