Harvey Weinstein who doesn’t recede from the headlines of the media all week because of accusations of harassment went to get treatment for sexual addiction.
The Hollywood producer is not the only one who has to fight with an irrepressible love of sex. We tell about men who became hostages of their own libido.
Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, accused of harassment, arrived in Arizona to treat sexual addiction. As reports TMZ he will probably choose the Meadows clinic.
There are some programs for the treatment of sexual addiction and anger management, including the Gentle Path - a 45-day course, which the patient is taking in the hospital. A month of stay in the clinic, according to Rehab Reviews website, costs $ 37,710.
consists of consultations, taking medication, yoga and hippotherapy. But, whether
the horse racing and talks with a psychologist help to temper increased libido,
only the patient could tell us.
Sexual addiction as a disease really exists, according to the psychologist Arina Lipkina. "Sexoholism is difficult to cure because such a person often justifies his behavior and thoughts.
sexual addiction can deny that they actually have such a problem.
The difficulty is also in identifying the difference between the fact that people have different sexual needs (libido), and the fact that it already becomes an addiction.
Problems begin when a person is unable to control his sexual arousal and crosses the personal boundaries of another person to please himself or herself (during sexual intercourse). At the same time, realizing the consequences - ill health, loss of career or family - he still regularly does it, spends excessive amounts of time and energy on getting sex, refusing from work or some important events."
There are no exact causes of the disease. Some psychologists suggest that dopamine (the hormone of pleasure) secreted during sex is mistakenly placed at the forefront as the main for survival.
There are also studies that the frontal lobe of the people with sexual addiction, which is responsible for
logic and morale, is weakened by the middle brain. Sometimes this is associated
with the sexual upbringing of children in dysfunctional families.
While doctors are looking for the causes of the diseases, there become more and more men suffering from sexual addiction. In particular, famous men.
One of the star patients of the Meadows clinic was the golfer Tiger Woods. In his attempt to recover from sexoholism, the sportaman took the same 45-day Gentle Path course. Woods, as well as Weinstein, was in the clinic because of the sudden revelation of the facts of his intimate life in the media.
After a public scandal with his wife, women who wanted to share stories about the endless betrayal of Woods began actively contacted American media. Some of them attached voice messages with evidence, others described in detail the orgies involving 15 prostitutes. According to rumors, Tyler had 120 mistresses over six years of family life.
The popular English humorist Russell Brand also had to cure from sexual addiction. Stand-up comic spent almost a month in a rehab clinic in Philadelphia. Brand decided to take this step on hos own - several times he admitted in public that the attacks are stronger than him.
"My sexual addiction grew every day, when I was offered to take part in an orgy, I agreed without even thinking about it," the comic told in an interview.
In 2007, Russell published his autobiography My Booky Wook, one of whose chapters is devoted to his sexual weaknesses. The humorist admitted that there were moments in his life when about 80 women were getting into his bed in a month.
After the first season of the series "Californication" ended in the US, the tabloids suggested that the actor started to get divorced with his wife, actress Tea Leoni. And they were right: in 2008 David Duchovny publicly admitted that he was suffering from sexual addiction and was going to fight it.
"I voluntarily went to the medical institution to treat my sexual addiction," he claimed through his lawyer. "I ask respect and inviolability of the private life of my wife and children, since we consider this situation as a family problem."
David admitted that he hated his "diagnosis", but the course of treatment did not save him, and the couple divorced in 2014.
Unlike the others, a sexoholic Sheen is not going to be treated for his illness. Doctors repeatedly recommended the star to go to the rehab clinic, but Charlie preferred not to pay attention to public opinion and participate in orgies.
According to the actor himself, he is a sex machine, and 5 thousand women has already been in bed with him. "I pay for sex, because I can’t stand any foreplay," he said in an interview. In addition, Sheen dreams to build his own porn empire.
