What’s better than a scandal? A sex scandal! When the studly star of a TV show about a Los Angeles novelist who can’t keep it in his pants revealed he suffered from the same sex addiction as his character, I had to wonder: Am I still going to enjoy watching David Duchovny hump his was through “Californication?” Would the show that once had his Golden Globe winning character, Hank Moody, getting punched in the face as he orgasms still be willing to go there, in light of his highly publicized sexual addiction problem? Within the first minutes of last night’s season premiere, I had my answer. In the opening sequence, Moody wakes up and whispers to his girlfriend, “I’ve got a godlike erection right now, and it seems a shame to waste it.” Touché, Hank! In this case of art imitating life, the on-screen sex has turned truly compelling. And here’s the kicker. Now, Moody’s trying to be monogamous. Oh, the irony. Maybe “Californication” fans like me are the ones who need the intimacy fix? It’s a good thing they’re not writing off Duchovny or Hank Moody yet. How else would the rest of us get off vicariously?

For the last few weeks, and up until this Sunday, it’s been a big time for TV addicts — so many shows are back! And with them comes the hot dudes that make the shows worth watching (well, in addition to awesome stories, great acting, etcetera). After the jump, 10 TV actors we’re so psyched to have back in our lives, including John Krasinski (“The Office” returns tomorrow night!) and Gale Harold, a new addition to “Desperate Housewives” (premiering this Sunday) whom we’ve loved since “Queer As Folk”.

Ever since David Duchovny checked into sex rehab, the internets have been abuzz about infidelity. And, not surprisingly, when it comes to sex, men and women have different takes on what constitutes cheating in the 21st century. According to Details, masturbation is “the new infidelity.” Over at the Atlantic, watching pornography may be tantamount to committing adultery. So, what’s cheating and what isn’t? Keep reading »
All across the Internet, headlines are hollering: “David Duchovny: SEX ADDICT!” According to Duchovny’s camp, the actor checked himself into rehab for sex addiction this week. Some say the shocker is nothing more than a publicity stunt, designed to promote the September 28th premiere of the second season of Showtime’s “Californication,” in which he stars as a writer with a problem keeping his penis in his pants. But considering Duchovny is married to actress Téa Leoni and the father of two, it’s unlikely even a Hollywood actor looking for a ratings boost would go that far.
Now that I am so used to him playing horny rabble-rousing a-hole Hank Moody on Californication, it’s easy to forget that there was once another role that David Duchovny was known for — Fox Mulder, from hit series The X-Files (the new film comes out this weekend). I have to admit, I wasn’t the hugest X-Files fan, despite being a total sci-fi nerd. I think it was too serious for me, and I like my aliens campy. But regardless, Mulder was hot. So hot, legions of horny men and women spent their free time writing Mulder/Scully erotic “fan fiction” (a truly nerdy hobby that I may or may not have engaged in myself) and posting it on the internet. Like this one! Keep reading »
David Duchovny, aka Mulder, and Gillian Anderson, aka Scully, were both looking hot and cool at WonderCon, the comic convention in San Francisco, yesterday. They reunited to talk about the highly-anticipated, better-late-than-never, X-Files film. Although maybe it was a little TMI, since Gillian Anderson admitted to wishing they would get an â€œauto-erotic asphyxiationâ€ plot line — like attending a sci-fi convention wasnâ€™t fetishy enough. In addition to the usual suspects, the film, set to be released in July, will also feature rapper Xzibit and actress Amanda Peet. While they didnâ€™t reveal much about the script, writer Chris Carter promises, “It will scare the pants off you. And you’ll get to see Mulder and Scully in a whole new way.” Well, after Duchovnyâ€™s hit sexy series Californication, Showtime has already beaten the X-Files movie to the naked punch (no pun intended). But thereâ€™s at least one mystery left to solve: David Duchovny, why wonâ€™t you love me? [Geek Sugar] Keep reading »
