i remember talking with some dependent on gay o l. he thought i was crazy to be equating sex-fiends like himself with alcoholics. truth is, there is such a thing as sexual addiction. few gay o l men see it as an addiction probably because it is condoned in the media, the media says it's okay for us to be sex addicts or otherwise dependent upon our libidos, that's why it is not viewed as a problem.
tell me, is alcoholism only a problem when it hurts somebody else? that's the state of the nation, "doowutchyalike, as long as it doesn't hurt anybody else".
