Sexual addiction huh?
Jeez, can't a guy step out on his wife (a couple of times) without it being labeled an addition?
They got ol' D. Duchovny with this disease and now this ESPN analyst Steve Phillipshas it. Chris Rock says, "a man is only as faithful as his options", can't we just assume a popular dude, T.V. host or say a Senator or even President (God forbid) goes where they go if they can go there because they have the means, money and maybe even popularity to go there, not because they are addicted?
I guess it's the sheer numbers of 'extra curricular' activities in the 'addictive' cases that earns them the label, but I argue that that's not addiction, that's just energy! Here's the deal…and I'm not condoning this behavior but, if one is going to cheat on their spouse, girlfriend, hubby, boyfriend, what-have-you and one can keep more then one affair happening, whether said affairs happen all at once or over a period of time, then one must be quite clever indeed in this age of constant cell phone communication to keep their addiction secret.
That takes guile, smarts and whole bunch of energy man.
I make no judgment on any person's life. I figure if you're in that marriage thang might as well give the monogamy part of it a shot, and if you feel you can't maybe it's best to let your other half know before you cause major ripples by cheating. But calling it an addiction, going to rehab! (dude, rehab!?) just cause you want more then one affair, just cause you're downloading porn to the exclusion of all else? Nah, it's just that you're horny man, that's all it is.
Sorry to say it, but it's unnatural for us to be monogamous, we all crave a little strange from time to time. We ain't addicted, we're horny little monkeys, all of us, men and women alike. So be free and swing man.
