Several years ago the world was agog at the discovery that Tiger Woods had cheated on his wife.. Anyone who could cheat on Elin Nordgren, an exquisitely beautiful blonde Swedish socialist, must be sick. Don’t you think?
So, everyone decided that Tiger Woods was a sex addict. Woods himself offered a therapy-speak laden apology and packed himself off to sex addict rehab.
In them I suggested that sex addiction was not a real addiction and that sex addict rehab was, basically, a fraud.
It turns out that I was right. It doesn’t happen all the time, so it’s noteworthy.
Yesterday, the Daily Mail reported on the latest research:
Sex addiction may not exist, according to a study.
Many celebrities - including Russell Brand, Kanye West, and Tiger Woods - have claimed to suffer from the addiction and even used it as an excuse for infidelity.
But new evidence suggests that 'hypersexuality' is not a real neurological or physiological disorder, but just a case of heightened sexual desire.
