Top 5 Modern Human Addictions | Top5's | Sex  Addiction | Scoop.it

"Sexual addiction is not as uncommon as you might think."

-----

Curator comment: this interesting list of the "top five modern human addictions" places "sex" at #4, between "idolization" (#5) and "being cool" (#3).  ("Technology" is #2 and "being right" is #1.) It also makes the brief but potentially useful distinction between sex addiction and "sex adulation".  (Note that some entries on this site are NSFW and may be triggering to some sex addicts.)

Literary supplement: Apologies of a Sex Addict - Ubyssey Online | Sex  Addiction | Scoop.it

“You’re claiming to be a sex addict,” says Barry, “I really doubt you have a true addiction.”


“Which makes you the worst sponsor ever. How am I supposed to accept my disease if you don’t?


“It’s hardly a disease, more just a lack of self-control. To be frank, I only agreed to be your ‘sponsor’ because I happen to be the only person who can tolerate you for longer than an hour.”

Curator's Commentary: Humor

The issue of addictive or compulsive sexual behavior is very serious.  Sex addiction destroys careers, marriages, the well-being of families and children, and at times peoples' very lives.


Because of this tragic reality, it is helpful to have opportunities to lighten up and even laugh.  The items in this category fill this need.  This category is also important because humor speaks to the cultural 'zeitgeist' or spirit of the times.  As such, it is as viable of a topic for consideration as any other category on this site.


Because of the nature of the subject, some of the content contained in these items (mostly videos) includes material that requires a broad tolerance for ireverence and biting satire.  While most of these items contain no overtly pornographic or decidedly profane content (exceptions are noted), they generally require adult and liberal sensibilities reflective of the subject matter.

"Addicted to Sex Addiction" (Humorous Video)

"Addicted to Sex Addiction"     (Humorous Video) | Sex  Addiction | Scoop.it

This is a two-and-a-half minute satirical news clip from 2010 that accurately skews much of the way new media cover the "ratings gold phenomenon of sex addiction".  (Curator's favorite line: "they inevitably all feature Dr. Drew".)


It's from InfoMania motto: "Making Sense And Nonsense of the Media Madness"), a satirical news show that "puts a comic spin on the 24-hour chaos and information overload brought about by the constant bombardment of the media."

Sex addiction? Damn attractive … | Financial Times

Sex addiction? Damn attractive …  |  Financial Times | Sex  Addiction | Scoop.it

"For my next career move, I’ve decided to become a sex addict. I’ve been considering my future for some time now and it seems like the logical next step. So many of its victims are rich and successful that it’s something of a status indicator. It’s clear from movies and the media: nothing says “winner” like sex addiction."


Curator comment:  This generally wry commentary sours when it relies on tired myths, such as "the best thing of all is the total lack of personal responsibility. Until you are caught, you are just a love rat, but once your priapic, narcissistic betrayals are exposed you get to play the victim."
