People tend to snicker about sex addiction, but it can destroy relationships, break up families and derail careers. You just have to look at Hollywood to see prime examples of this. Some so-called sex addicts may just be making excuses for being unfaithful, but others seem to have a legitimate compulsion. It’s more akin to the gambling rush than the chemical dependency of alcohol or drugs. Often its a symptom of deeper issues that require therapy and rehab to “cure” or manage. Here are 10 famous sex addicts whose overactive libidos have gotten them into big trouble.
1. Dean McDermott
Having Tori Spelling as wife and four young children isn’t enough to keep this man’s libido under control. Her cheating hubby Dean McDermott was caught red handed when his one night stand took details of their tryst to the tabloids. Spelling gave him an ultimatum – rehab or get out. Somehow she thought it was a good idea to put their couple’s therapy on reality TV. The 6 episode True Tori documented their sessions where McDermott admitted he was a sex addict.
2. Tiger Woods
Woods’ fall from a happily married golf icon to a sex addicted two-timer is legendary. The trigger was news of his affair with Rachel Uchitel in 2009. Before the year was over, more than twelve women had come forward, sending Woods’ wholesome image into the trash can for good. Early next year, he publicly admitted to his mistakes, claiming that he thought he could get away with impunity. Not surprisingly, this honest admission was followed by an expensive divorce with wife Elin Nordegren. He’s one of the famous sex addicts it’s hard to feel sorry for.
