And don't EVEN get me started on the whole "sexual addiction" thing. It seems to be quite in vogue now to be a 25-35 year old male having lots of sex with different people, get caught, and then go to rehab for "sexual addiction".
First off, the very existence of the disease or condition "sexual addiction" is NOT universally accepted by sexologists. I happen to believe it does exist in rare cases, but is often incorrectly diagnosed so that sufferers can feel they are less/not responsible for their behavior. I mean, being diagnosed with alcoholism doesn't remove the responsibility of one's actions, so why would someone with sexual addiction be any less responsible for theirs?
Take Tiger for instance. He's young, handsome, talented, and rich. He's the complete package; the proverbial captain of the football team. He can probably have as much sex as he wants with as many people as he wants. To me, that is not "sexual addiction", that is simply taking advantage of his situation.
But even if celebrities ARE sexual addicts or sexual compulsives, why do so many regular everyday people care? Why do tabloids and 'entertainment' tv shows stay in business by reporting such info?
I don't understand it. I just don't get why anyone cares.
