With all the recent media attention on the Harvey Weinstein scandal—numerous revelations by movie stars about the powerful Hollywood film producer’s sexual harassment and assault habits—we’re seeing many references to his behavior as “sex addiction.” Cleverly, Weinstein has taken the easy path—rehab instead of prison—checking himself into expensive “sex-addiction rehab” programs for the foreseeable future.
Years ago, I saw a cartoon that really made me laugh: In a therapist’s office, a woman is lying on the typical Freudian couch, and says to the therapist, “You know, doctor, there are some things I don’t tell you.”
And the therapist responds, “I want you to know, Mrs. Jones, that I really appreciate that!”
Like most of the best jokes, it hits on a deep truth that we rarely acknowledge—we don’t know what we don’t know, and maybe don’t even want to know.
I'm really proud about what we are creating with the, "Smart sex-Smart Love" discussion series at my psychotherapy offices. Last night we had men and women, straight, bisexual and gay, caucasian and people of color. Next month we are talking about pornography and gender differences/similarities reacting to porn as well as how it affects or impacts sexual behavior.

Others include Joe Kort, a sexologist and former sex-addiction therapist who has defected, and who wrote a blog in late 2015 renouncing the sex-addiction model. “I think it is... very harmful to gay and bisexual men,” Kort, who is gay, told The Daily Beast of the sex-addiction model. “It’s gotten a lot worse in the last five-to-seven years because it has gotten more religious. So they are looking at sex from a moral lens.”

@drjoekort @Timmy________ @PsyPost Thank you very much. There’s an article similar to this one by David Ley and Psychology Today you could find.
@drjoekort @Timmy________ @PsyPost I have heard variations of this. I don’t know how exactly true it is but I’ve heard of it.
