Anthony Weiner Is Not a Sex Addict

My article on Weiner not being a "sex addict" on Psychology Today was put at the top for essential read! 

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/understanding-the-erotic-code/201609/anthony-weiner-is-not-sex-addict

It was an important article for me to write because immediately people jump to that conclusion and over-pathologize  what he did. 

It is so irresponsible and adds to the problems we see in our offices where someone comes in either self-diagnosed just from reading these media-driven simplistic ways someone is diagnosed with "sex addiction"--a diagnosis that doesn't exist in any formal way. 

Yes he has a problem. We need to slow down and keys a trained therapist in human sexuality assess each person with out-of control sexual behaviors before labeling them.
