Sex Addiction is NOT Real with Dr. David Ley


Today on That Sex Chick:

  • Challenging claims of sex addiction
  • Issues with sex addiction “treatment”
  • Being religious is a risk factor for developing a sexual disorder
  • The power of self-acceptance & compassion
  • Making sexuality a healthy part of your life

Dr. David Ley is a therapist and psychologist here to de-shame, debunk, and shed light on the idea of sex as an addiction. He unpacks the impact growing up religious or with morally conservative beliefs has on people identifying as sex addicts, discussing why it’s crucial we make sexuality a healthy part of life. David and Alexa break down how after 40 years, the sex addiction model of treatment still has no positive impact, and how leaning into self-compassion and acceptance are actual solutions to sexual disorders.
