A few weeks ago I saw a commercial on TV about a reality show with people who are sex addicts.
Today they are talking about Tiger Woods and the possibility of him being a sex addict..... since there are now women crawling out of the wood work admitting to affairs with him and how huge his sexual appetite is.
No, this is not a debate about if he is or not... nor is it meant to be another Tiger Woods blog.

But it did make me wonder how many people have used this as an excuse when they've gotten caught cheating. Or if they really are addicted to having sex.

Do you think that some people are honestly what would be considered sex addicts, addicted to having sex like any other addiction? Or do you think it's an excuse that some use when they've been caught cheating...... sometimes on numerous occassions?

If you were with someone you really cared about and discovered they were addicted to having sex... although they honestly loved you..... would you stay with, or continue to have sex with that person?

I actually dated a woman that was addicted to sex. Not to the point she cheated... that I know of. But she wanted it three or four times a day, everyday. Sounds like a dream come true to most men I'm sure, but after day three... mini me was screaming for I was hung like a donkey until she wore it down... seriously...

Honestly though, I like sex, but you have to have a break from time to time.

I think too many people use that as an excuse for their bad behavior, but that's my opinion... just seems to be an escape for a "transgression" LOL

I agree with PTN. I think too many use it as a cop out for cheating. Not saying it isn't a real disorder, just saying some find it an convenient excuse.

I don't think addiction to sex is like addiction to alcohol or drugs, where you have actual physical withdrawal that requires medical intervention.

I think there probably are people who engage in sex compulsively and need to help to stop. And I'm sure there are also people use "sex addiction' as an excuse when they get caught.

I wouldn't stay in a serious relationship with anyone who felt they couldn't stop having sex wiith other people. My view would be that they need to get help before they enter into a relationship with someone who expected them to be monogamous.

There are actual sex addicts, I claim to be one from time to time but in honesty.. I'm just horny all the time.. but there are actual sex addicts who cannot go without.

I don't believe that most of the people who say they are .. really are.. cuz if you are an addict the last thing you're going to do is admit it.

As for Tiger and his ilk? Come on.. he's famous.. fame breeds groupies.. power breeds groupies.. it's awfully hard to expect any person, male or female to have the self-control to say no to everyone that comes on to them. Hell.. I'm not even famous and I have a hard time saying no.

Wait, I missed that last question..

I am now taking applications from true sex addicts who cannot go more than 8 hours without. I want references and a medical report to prove that you truly are an addict.. I also wanna know that you aren't likely to take that 12 step program and stop it soon either.

I wonder if the term is just thrown out there without real cause. From what I have read TW is not an addict, just a horn dog.

I had to do a little snooping to find out what defines sexual addition behavior.

Behaviors associated with sexual addiction include:

•Compulsive masturbation (self-stimulation)
•Multiple affairs (extra-marital affairs)
•Multiple or anonymous sexual partners and/or one-night stands
•Consistent use of pornography
•Unsafe sex
•Phone or computer sex (cybersex)
•Prostitution or use of prostitutes
•Exhibitionism
•Obsessive dating through personal ads
•Voyeurism (watching others) and/or stalking
•Sexual harassment
•Molestation/rape
Generally, a person with a sex addiction gains little satisfaction from the sexual activity and forms no emotional bond with his or her sex partners. In addition, the problem of sex addiction often leads to feelings of guilt and shame. A sex addict also feels a lack of control over the behavior, despite negative consequences (financial, health, social, and emotional

Nah! He's not a sex addict. He just wants a little 'strange' now and then.
My girlfriend is more addicted to sex than I am, sometimes she wants sex three times a day and at least an hour at a time. I think it's great....most of the time.

Sex addiction is a sign of insecurity. People feel accepted by other people when they have sex with them. I think some use it as an excuse. You would think someone famous would not have that problem because they have women or men throwing themselves at them all day long. But they have to wonder if the people are throwing themselves at the name instead of the person. As for all these women in the Woods case. I would say some are telling the truth and the others are after their 15 minutes of fame. The numbers are getting just a little too high to be believed. I mean when did he find time to play golf if all that is true?

ALL addictions involve an area in the midbrain called the

nucleus accumben septi. I took a course on the human brain.

Rats with electrodes attached to this area and given access to a switch
to activate the stimulation will continue pressing the switch, not drinking

or eating to the point of death.

Here's the course:

I usually watch golf only when Tiger is playing..
I don't believe I've ever seen a tournament when his wife wasn't in the gallery
Her and the kids..
Makes me wonder when he had the time???

I use to be addicted to sex but while going through withdrawals I figgered out how to use the twitching in my right hand to satisfy some of my pent up sexual desires.

I would disagree with your statement that this is how most people seem to be. There are certainly a lot of people who behave badly and use stupid excuses for it. But I wouldn't say most of the people I encounter fall into that category.

I personally don't know a single person who used sex addiction as an excuse for infidelity. Most have simply said they acted stupidly. And they were right in that assessment.

And you're certainly entitled to your opinion, as I stated my opinion.
