5:00 Interview: the Myth of Sex Addiction
Dr. David Ley is a clinical psychologist and the author of a new book on sex addiction to be released next week!
- First book was Insatiable Wives about permissive female infidelity and the hotwife lifestyle
- Why the book was necessary
- Is “sex addiction” just a label for celebrities who have more sex than me?
- If sex is a biological imperative, how can it be an addiction?
- Why has this arisen in our culture now, this idea that people can be addicted to sex? What brought this about?
- TigressBooks asks: but is this behavior typical of alpha male? Not pathological, but personality type?
- Nissyen asks: there are lots of compulsive behaviors. Does sex gets the addiction label because it’s so culturally taboo to be promiscuous?
- Irish8m asks: isnt any action/behavior done to a degree that pushes other aspects of life out of balance an “addiction,” including sex?
