Those of us who are married and have sex with people who are not our spouses are usually referred to as cheaters or adulterers...just like people who steal are thieves. If I like to steal a lot, uncontrollably even, am I a theft addict? Should this be a criminal defense strategy? Rehab for theft addiction instead of jail?
Tell me, why does this condition only affect men? Geraldo Rivera, Charlie Sheen and now Tea Leoni's man, David Duchovny. Can you name a female sex addict? Or are they just sluts? How is it that professionals are helping men validate their love of sex with a "condition?" Will employers have to accommodate this condition? Say... give a sex addict an extra hour for lunch to maybe bang a co-worker? Perhaps Mr. Duchovny can speak before.
Congress on the issue. I'm sure many a Congressman would be interested in the subject matter. In the meantime, I am going to begin my research to find the cure for sexaholism. I am even going to rally my friends to "Stand Up For The Cure" so all men can "Beat It".....no pun intended.
