No More Sex In The City for My Sex Addict Hubby

I’ve been married for several years and thought my husband had lost his libido just from getting older. After all, he was 48 year old when we got married.

Is sex addiction real or is it just the latest cop-out for bad behavior?   Dr. David Ley is garnering attention investigating precisely that question. He’s advocating that sex addiction is a myth.

Stop Mocking Sex Addicts by George Collins

Dr. Ley, stop trivializing the pain and suffering of sex addicts to promote your book and most recently your article in the New York Post called “The Myth of Sex Addiction.” It’s irresponsible and demonstrates how little you actually know about how sex addicts suffer and the stranglehold their compulsion has on them, let alone the increasing weight of science …

Dr. David Ley’s recent article called the “The Comforting Fiction of Sex Addiction” reads like, well, . . . fiction.  In it he talks about what he calls “the myth of sex addiction” which to me is, well, . . . a myth.   In fact, little in Dr. Ley’s sex addict bashing tome reflects my reality as a counselor …
