actually, thats true. I have heard stories of meetings for sex addicts (kind of like AA meetings), where after the meeting, they all just go to a motel and bang each other.

My last paragraph states sex addicts still have to suffer the concequences of their behavior. I absolve no one of having to atone for their actions. Sex addiction is no more an excuise than alcoholism or drug addiction.
There is a huge difference in having a healthy active sex drive and an addiction someone can't control theirself. Like other addictions it is self destructive. The tragic thing about all addictions they are also destructive to others. Often the only way an addict is willing to get help is after he or she has destroyed their life and is suffereing the just deserved concequences.
Pardon me if I am trying to shed some light on this addictive destructive behavior. And I am far from a psycho-babbling enabeler. Anyone familiar with 12 step programs knows the addict has to admit to theirselves first and then to others their behavior and make no excuses about it.
I am not defending Mr. Duchovney nor trying to make excuises for him. I am talking about sex addiction in general. And from the comments on this forum it seems that knowledge about this subject is still in the dark ages. I will be one of the first people to step up and say "if you do the crime you do the time".
Why even bother trying to explain something to these perfect, narrow-minded people... Some people will never understand an issue unless they experience it themselves, and even then I wouldn't hold my breath.

I understand what you're saying about this addiction. I don't know a lot about it, but I have read a little about it. It's just like any other addiction whether it's shoplifting, uncontrolled spending, gambling etc... A lot addicts don't even realize they have a problem... It's noticed more by the people around them... family, friends, co-workers.

I'm happy that David D. and Lea T. have a strong enough marriage that his wife is able to understand it's a serious problem and stand by him and be supportive. I just hope the rehab helps, because just like any other addiction, it's very unlikely she will be able to stand beside him forever if he doesn't help himself.

Sexual Addiction is real and nothing to be snickered about. It is no more about sex than alcohol addiction is about alcohol.

I suggest that some of you do research on the topic.
