I asked my husband what hisÂ take was on all these celebritiesÂ ( the celebrity du jourÂ being Mr. Duchovny) claiming they’re victims of their sex addictions. And this is what heÂ said,Â “Bottom line they just don’t know the meaning of self-control.”
Because really when you think about it– how many of us married people consider sex with a stranger ( even for just a brief, fleeting moment? I’d gamble and say there are MANY of us. Sure it’s titillating, exciting, but most of all itâ€™s forbidden, which makes it even more titillating. Â And yet- the majority of us- reign in those fantasies and exhibit good old fashioned self control. Because we know- those five minutes ( yes I know some of us can engage in those long drawn out ten minute sex sessions…) are simply not worth risking the yearsÂ , effort and love we’ve invested in our current relationships. In other words we exercise self- control- because we can’t imagine the shame and humiliationÂ it would wreak onÂ the person who we vowed to be faithful toÂ when we solidifiedÂ our marital union.
So bottom line, this sex addiction catchphrase so many celebrities have been using to describe their infidelities, well itâ€™s just a code word for their lack of self control. Don’t you think these celebritiesÂ should just shut up already about their sex addictions and admit they’re just a bunch of self indulgent horses assesÂ who can’t be faithful in their marriages?!
