Sample text: Applicants must translate the following text
Sex addiction is a disease affecting the mind, body, and spirit. It is
progressive, with the behavior and its consequences usually becoming
more severe over time. We experience it as compulsion, which is an urge
that is stronger than our will to resist, and as obsession, which is a mental
preoccupation with sexual behavior and fantasies. In SAA, we have come
to call our addictive sexual behavior acting out.
