I think the big difference is the openness of communication between the partners. What difference does it make to anybody who is not in the relationship? Is it really cheating if your partner agrees to let you have some extra-marital carnal fun? Tiger et. al. went out behind their spouses back and did not have permission. That causes problems. If after giving permission one of the partners decides they don't want to share anymore then the sharing must stop. It is a couple in the relationship it has to be a couples decision to go outside of the marriage for extra fun.

I would have to agree that just because Anna Paquin is bi does not mean she is allowed to go out and have extra fun. It would be up to her and her husband. I don't see a problem with it.

What happens in sex addiction? Do they have to swear off sex forever also? Seems harsh, but if that's what it takes...
I don't think it's like drug addiction - since taking a harmful drug one time can cause addiction, and the drug itself is poison to your system. More like learning to find a balance where your sex life doesn't disrupt the rest of your life. In that sense, it's probably more like kicking "food addiction," since it is not a good plan to stop eating forever.

That would cure the addiction.

Seriously have you ever known any one who went into treatment for sex addiction ? I haven't and I've known some pretty bed hopping people .

From my understanding from a friend of mine who is a physician who worked at one time with sex addicts in a clinical setting like Jesse went to, sex addiction is THE hardest addiction to cure of all. She said it was because it is so primary to the psyche and who we are (vs. alcoholism, say).
Since we both knew someone who was a sex addict, we sat down and she ran thru all the signs/symptoms of a sex addict and he had each and every one. It was an amazing and interesting conversation that I wish I knew even more about as it was that fascinating to study.
Michael Douglas the actor went to one of these clinics and is now "cured." I'm guessing he's around 60-something now...and his libido just ran out with old age. Don't hear about 70 year old sex addicts much do we? Heroin addicts have a phenomenon that--if they live that long--they just stop doing heroin around 45. Guess when your libido starts dying you quit being a sex addict.

Ha

You really need to take a trip to Houston someday....it was so wide open there (or was before I left) that there were big clubs for swingers in the middle of town built there (I'm saying they owned their own buildings with bars, music and other club amenities). As well as, Houston has--and probably always will--the award for THE city with the most strip clubs by far anywhere in this country. Known any strippers? If so, you know that the vast majority of them are bi-...and announce it. No biggie, really...unless you get some unwanted advance but you just learn to sidestep it politely, of course.

Here is a recent article that has some interesting tidbits on sex addiction in it: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/lif...cle7086635.ece
