‘Don’t think of a naked elephant’ - Sex Addiction

Comedian Jacob Hawley explores the world of love, sex and intimacy - and the people that make money from it.


This week he explores sex addiction - does it exist, what causes it, and how bad can it get? He hears from Paula Hall from The Laurel Centre and counsellor Owen Redahan about the causes of sex addiction and how they work with patients to help them recover from it, Youtuber Courtney Daniella Boateng and musician Triple O about their experiences with addiction and compulsion, and Dr David Ley about ’The Myth of Sex Addiction’ and how else we can frame addiction.
