Could you be or is someone you know a sex addict? Is sex an addiction? David Ley, PhD is a a clinical psychologist practicing in New Mexico. He first began treating perpetrators and victims of sexual abuse, but expanded his practice to include the promotion of healthy sexuality and awareness of the wide range of normative sexual behaviors. Dr. Ley discusses the root causes of addiction, brain chemistry, and pleasure chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin. How does sex affect the brain vs a drug or alcohol’s effect? What is addiction? What are the real dangers of the diagnosis of “sex addiction” to free will, your relationship, and to society? What if sex-offenders & rapists get sentenced to sex-addiction treatment facilities rather than prison? What happens when sex is viewed as a disease and too much is believed to be dangerous? Why is sex-addiction dangerous? It’s a discussion critical to the sexual issues facing our society and it’s not what most people think.
