Sex Addiction: The Interface Between Insecurity + Consumerism

“Weiss quotes the distraught partner of a sex addict: ‘I realize now that many of the things he liked and requested when we made love were re-creations of images he had viewed online. He is no longer able to be intimate. He objectifies me, other women, and girls on the street. When we go out, it’s like his head is on a swivel, staring at every woman who goes by. When we’re together in bed, he fantasises about the women he’s seen online and imagines that he’s having sex with one of them. I know he does; I can feel it.'”
