Abstract Recent research suggests that romantic love can be literally addictive. The broad view, by contrast, counts even basic social attachment as being on a spectrum of addictive motivations, underwritten by similar neurochemical processes as more conventional addictions. We argue that on either understanding of love-as-addiction, treatment decisions should hinge on considerations of harm and well-being rather than on definitions of disease. Implications for the ethical use of anti-love biotechnology are considered. We need attachment to survive and we instinctively seek connection, especially romantic connection. Love can be thrilling, but it can also be perilous. When our feelings are returned, we might feel euphoric. Lovers can become distracted, unreliable, unreasonable, or even unfaithful. In the worst case, they can become deadly.

Few clinicians are prepared en route for ask about sexual history or sexually compulsive behaviors when this is hardly ever the presenting problem in treatment. Partners most often have little to denial awareness of the extent of the sexual acting out and so accomplish not know to bring it ahead in treatment.
