The Sex Industry #2

Jed Mercurio – has an interesting piece on ‘sex addiction’. Needless to say ‘sex addicts’ seem to be rich celebs, beating off members of the opposite sex with an ordure-covered shelalagh. Funny that.

Sex addiction has been made “fashionable” by celebrities such as Russell Brand, who claims in his autobiography, My Booky Wook, that his relentless desire for “how's yer father” is a compulsion beyond his control. Well, I've spent the past year living with sex addiction - not my own, you understand, but while researching a book on John F. Kennedy - and the more I study it, the more sceptical I have become that sex addiction is a geniune condition.

No shit, Sherlock. There are plenty of interested parties in keeping the myth of ‘sex addiction’ alive and well – members of the psychiatry and psychology fraternities , happy to make this an area of special interest and charge £200 an hour for a prolonged course of therapy. Wouldn’t do to take a judgemental line, though.

The Church has long had a name for ‘sex addiction’. It’s called lust. It has a very effective remedy: contrition, sacramental confession, prayer, fasting and self-control. Not that you’ll see that advocated in the pages of The Guardian or the British Journal of Psychiatry. Just doesn’t, you know, fit the zeitgeist.
