Sex addiction. Many of us can feel that it’s only an “issue” that plagues the rich and famous (issue is in quotation marks because many people believe it isn’t even real), and that said rich and famous are just doing what anyone with tons of money and status would do: partying their a**es off and enjoying all of the attention. But, why then, are not all celebrities sex addicts? Why, then, doesn’t every single gorgeous star who could have anyone they wanted sleep around? Because that type of access to sex is only a problem for those who already had issues before gaining fame and money. I heard a wonderful quote once about how money just makes you more of what you already were: if you were sick, you become sicker, and if you were good, you become better. We know that to be true from all of the celebrities that donate most of their income to charitable causes. Money tends to only enhance behaviors that were already present, which is why some celebrities are sex addicts, and some are not. But on a related and important note, it’s not just the stars who are plagued by sex addiction. We just don’t hear of it as often amongst our peers. But it’s there, and it’s often misunderstood. Here are myths and realities about sex addiction.

Myth: It’s not a real problem

Some believe sex addiction is not even a thing. They may say that sex feels great, everyone is highly attracted to sex and driven by a desire to have sex, and so everyone is a bit sex addicted meaning nobody is sex addicted.
