What the Experts Say About Tiger and Sex Addiction
Noted expert ,Dr. Drew Pinsky, who has his own show on VHI called “Sex Rehab” says that sex addiction might be a part of Tiger’s problem. Pinsky stated that Tiger Woods’ serial sexual seduction of various women during his marriage to Elin Nordegren had all the makings of a sex addiction.
United Kingdom health and relationship expert Claire Hegarty is quoted as saying the following: “Tiger Woods is showing all the signs of being a sex addict which is not just a word that people use to explain them having affairs but is a real illness that needs to be treated. Tiger Woods needs help and he needs it now before he can even think about saving his marriage.”
David Smallwood, an Addictions Manager at London's Priory Clinic, believes the exposure of the Tiger Woods’ affairs hint at his uncontrolled craving for sex. Says Smallwood, "All of the things Woods is alleged to have done point to him having a sex addiction.”
Infidelity and Sex Addiction
As an infidelity expert, who has been researching infidelity for almost 16 years, I’ve interviewed thousands of infidelity victims and cheaters of both sexes. I’ve found that many serial cheaters use sex addiction as an excuse for their infidelity.
There are men who will grasp at any excuse to explain why they cheated on their wives – after they get caught. See the article entitled Is There a Gene That Makes Men Cheat? However, this doesn’t appear to be the case with Tiger Woods.
Nevertheless, for every legitimate case of sex addiction, there are probably 50 to 75 other cheating men who are merely using sex addiction as an excuse.
If Tiger Woods is truly a sex addict, I hope undergoing sex addiction therapy will help him save his marriage, get it back on track, and restore his tarnished reputation. I certainly wish Tiger and his wife the best.
