It’s become so mainstream that Jason Sudeikis starred in a film with a character suffering from sex addiction and it barely raised an eyebrow.
There are still people who believe sex addiction isn’t a real thing, or if it is real, it sounds like a lot of fun to have, but both mental health and addiction specialists seem to agree across the board it is a real condition, with a brain reaction similar to that of other addictions such as drugs, alcohol, gambling and eating disorders. Sex addiction isn’t a fun thing and it has ruined a lot of lives.
Cases of sex addiction have exploded with the expansion of the Internet over the last 20 years. At any given moment, more than 29,000 people are viewing adult entertainment on the Internet, at that is likely a conservative number. While numbers of consumption is growing among both genders, women now make one-third of the people viewing erotic content online.
In-patient treatment facilities have seen a boom in numbers as adult entertainment has expanded on the Internet. Similar to the way marijuana is called a gateway drug, some experts believe erotic content is a gateway behavior to riskier sexual habits. Here is a list of 15 celebrities who have come forward, or were forced to come forward, about their sex addiction.
15. Tom Sizemore
Known for his edgy roles in some of the mid-90s most popular films such as Natural Born Killers, True Romance and Born on the Fourth of July, Sizemore is perhaps most known for playing himself during the third season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, a television show designed to show the outside world what it’s like in rehab. Sizemore’s sex addiction was linked with his drug and alcohol abuse, which resulted in a rare condition called priapism, which is the medical term for prolonged erections that can’t return to a non-aroused state. In 2005, a sex tape featuring Sizemore and multiple women was released. While he is supposedly drug and alcohol free now, being clean certainly hasn’t helped his career.
