Is Silvio Berlusconi A Sex Addict?
How convenient. According to Fox News, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is being encouraged by those closest to him that he needs to seek help for his “sex addiction.” The PM has been embroiled in molto controversy ever since he attended an 18-year-old’s birthday party, engaged in sexy phone calls with her, allegedly had sex with a call girl, and supposedly tried to fill parliament seats with actresses and showgirls. His wife has since filed for divorce because of these icky shenanigans. While Berlusconi certainly has an over-the-top sexual appetite, I’m a little sick of boys behaving badly using the “sex addict” excuse. There’s been some debate as to whether “sex addiction” is for real — I tend to think it definitely is, but I also don’t think it’s nearly as prevalent as the David Duchovnys of the world would have you believe. Some dudes can, but instead refuse to keep it in their pants. [Fox News]
