Last week, a caller on the syndicated call-in radio program “Loveline” prefaced his question by listing the symptoms of his fiancée’s endometriosis. The radio show’s host, Dr. Drew, cut him off:
“These are what we call sort of functional disorders. Everything you mentioned, everything you mentioned, are things that actually aren’t discernibly pathological. They’re…

Dr. Drew Is Mansplaining Your Sexual Desires For You, “50 Shades Of Grey” Fans

Dr. Drew Pinsky is utterly clueless about about bondage, dominance, and sadomascochism in relationships and has no business discussing them on national television. That is my conclusion after seeing Dr. Drew brought in as an “expert,” and yes those air quotes are intentional, on “The Today Show” recently to discuss the book 50 Shades Of Grey. A…

Alana Is Back And Headed For Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers!

I simply must commend the wise minds behind “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers” for concluding that Alana, our latest muse from “Toddlers & Tiaras,” was worthy of appearing on a show with such a name.

Well, the idea does seem pretty silly — on the surface. Addicted to sex? It sounds more like someone can’t keep their…

Am I The Only One Who Cannot Wait For Sex Rehab?

No, I’m not checking into sex rehab. I am waiting with bated breath for the premiere of VH1’s “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew.” Tracking the recovery processes of sort-of-stars addicted to crack, crystal, and booze wasn’t enough for VH1’s hardcore audience, so the shock-reality network is heading into raunchier terrain with a show that take…
