My friend and colleague, Marty Klein and I have been on a campaign to eliminate the notion of sexual addiction. I am happy to report that he has written an excellent article debunking the whole notion and was interviewed about the article today by Dan Savage.

I whole heartedly agree.  The label sexual addiction doesn't make any sense at all except to employ television talk shows and fill news media.
