This is sad, who wants to hear about someone elses' sex life, get over it.Probably gay anyway, next we're hear he wants a sex change.

Sounds like a public relations ploy to get people interested in the program as the season kicks off. Doubt if there's a real problem judging from being a fan of his for the last 10 "no big story" years.

I'm pretty sure I've got it too! Almost sure of it. What are those symptoms again?

Ha, and all this time we thought it was Mulder that was the creep on X-files watching porn and calling sex hotlines. Well, I guess it's easier to act if you are just being yourself. Nonetheless, still a fan of his work.

Please this 3-point checklist. Do you have a show on tv that desperately needs publicity? Have you pulled a transparent publicity stunt, "checking in" to a facility that treats the disorder your character has? Have you then oh-so-coyly spread the word about it, then adding that your family wants "privacy"? No? Then you're just fine.

How is this problem treated? Will it be covered under the Obama health insurance plan? Will McCain let anyone with this problem go to the emergency room for treatment? Where does Governor Palin stand on this important issue? Let's hear from Eliot Spitzer on this issue.

Michael Douglas went to sex rehab too. Do any hot actresses check into these programs too?

Sex rehab may be a good place to scope out potential sex buddies.

Oh, come on. Aren't we all addicted to sex, biologically? If you want real funny sex addiction read this girl-boy-girl sex romance written by a Harvard Grad about his wife and Romanian strippers "Caribbean Dreams: TRUE STORY of an Ivy League Couple who Bought a STRIP CLUB in the Caribbean" www.caribbeanstripclub.com . It's like being addicted to food or water, necessary for survival and how we evolved! Read a little Darwin!

No news here. After all, this is Hollywood - they don't live in the real world.

How do these things get out in the news? True confession isn't always good for the heart or the family. I don't mean not to tell your spouse, you just don't need to air your family problems to the public. I feel sorry for him and hope he can rebuild some respect back from his wife and therepy helps. Is this cureable? No one wants to be addicted to anything...I guess if you want something bad enough, you can over come anything. Good Luck!

I was thinking it was a publicity stunt as well....
But it is presented in a fairly serious light...then again, DD has a very dry sense of humor, this could be the sort of thing he would find funny.
If it isn't a stunt, I hope he didn't have an affair...that would make me sad...he had one of the longest marriages in hollywood.
Even if he is a sex addict (which i find to be a stupid diagnosis anyways), who cares....its not a crime to like sex....we ALL DO!
I STILL LOVE DAVID DUCHOVNY!!!!!!

Maybe the real problem is feeling bad about what comes naturally to humans? Be a careful honest slut and enjoy. Want to feel bad? Feel bad if your not playing safe, or lying about sex. There are plenty of open relationships that do just fine.
