From The Times of India, no less, comes a story about sex addiction in the U.S. Can't wait to see what Cage has to say about it...
"Sex addiction affects 3% to 5% of all Americans, according to the latest estimates. The disorder has come into the spotlight, thanks to celebrities like Russell Brand and David Duchovny, who checked into rehabilitation centres in the US to get treated.
Today there are more than eight clinics in the US offering specialist treatment to those who suffer from the disorder.
The Life Healing Centre (LHC) is in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and it offers two sex addiction programmes: one for men and the other for women.
Addiction specialist Rob Weiss,who created the sex addiction programme at LHC, said: 'Sex addicts are people who lose control over healthy sexual choices. They say things to themselves like, 'I'm not going to go to that place for sex' or 'I'm not going to see that person for sex' but they continue to do it anyway.
They show behaviours that are common to all addicts and they show consequences and thinking that is common to all addicts.'
Psychologist and author Patrick Carnes estimates three to 5% of Americans suffer from the disorder. Their behaviour can vary from compulsively watching porn online to visiting prostitutes at every opportunity.
Andy is 31 and is enrolled in the programme. He claims to have been a sex addict for years. He said: 'I was compulsive self-pleasuring, using pornography, going to prostitutes and having people sexually abuse and torture me for my pleasure.'
His addiction got so out of control that he was unable to walk for a month after a dominatrix severely sexually abused him at his request."
