Most people are familiar with sex. Some like it. Some like it a lot and seek to engage in sex more than others.
Some people are inclined to think that the desire for “too much sex,” however much that may be, is due to a mental disorder.
In this edition of Radio Curious, host Barry Vogel visits with David J. Ley, Ph.D. the author of The Myth of Sex Addiction. In this first of two conversations with Dr. Ley, the argument that “sex addiction” is a fraudulent concept is presented. In part two we discuss the evolutionary development of human sexuality and the many cultural approaches to sexual expression.
Barry spoke to Dr. Ley by phone from his office in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 6, 2012. They discussed why he characterizes “sex addiction” as a fraud, not as a disorder.
