We used to call them perverts or deviants. Now they're sex addicts. What's the difference? And can they really be "rehabilitated" - short of castration? He must have gotten caught doing something really twisted by his wife, and this is his last chance to save his marriage...er, keep his house and half of his assets. What do you tell your children about this? They must be proud - gonna catch hell at school on Monday. Way to go Dad!

How embarrasing. Having Tea Leoni for a wife, somethings gotta be wrong. Who knows what these head cases are doing or thinking. Everything you see on TV, MAGS , Advertising promotes sex. No wonder all our kids are FOOKED UP!

why is it a problem???? Sex is a given to us to bring feelings that uplift our life. To say how much one likes it or needs it is a problem????? What have we become. It's only a problem when a person has a high drive and can't find a release.(sounds funny but) Being serious how is this a problem? The real problem is that we can't just go to a place and get what they need. Our country has become to stuck on a prudest mentality. Live and let live as long as you don't hurt anybody. Come on people we only live once!!!

Married to Tea Leoni and NOT a sex adict? If yes, cut it off and marry Rosie O'Donnell.

I love how in today's society where there is absolutely zero personal accountability for your actions, everything a person does that is unacceptable is deemed an "addiction". Just beautiful how instead of being deemed a "selfish jerk who doesn't want to keep it in his pants" he is now a "poor unfortunate soul who is bravely battling a serious addiction." And no, this is not the opinion of some religious nutcase. Far from it. I'm about as non-religious as you can get. But I'm just a person who is sick and tired of a society in which everyone gets a free pass for unacceptable behavior by explaining it away as an "addiction". What's next? "I had to mug that old lady because my daddy didn't hug me enough when I was a kid."

So, what does that mean? Most sex addicts don't stay with one partner to get their fix? So who are all the women he's been bangin'? Or maybe it's men too?!

I agree. It's more of a scheduling problem.

I hope this opens up dialogue about sex addiction. For too long it has been shoved to the back and the people who have it have been labeled as deviants or worse. Addiction is addiction regardless of it's label. But in the USA, sex is considered a dirty word. There are those who don't want people educated about sexuality and the issues surrounding it like addiction, diseases and preventive measures to not get pregnant or sick. Some parents don't want to talk to their kids but instead want the govenrment interaction. Then when schools do try to teach sex education, some of the parents or right wing nut jobs scream that the schools are trying to pervert their children. Sex can kill, ruin lives or be a pleasureable thing. It's time to start stop treating it as a taboo.
