Does Harvey Weinstein Have A Sex Addiction?

Here is a link –

Dr. Stanton Peele and Zach Rhoads engage in a clinical conversaton about Harvey Weinstein and recent allegations of sexual abuse and rape. Several questions have surfaced after this week’s news that Weinstein has diagnosed himself with a sex addiction; Stanton and Zach address a few:

– Is sex addiction real?

– Does sex addiction adequately describe Weinstein’s behavior?

– Is it possible he has some other kind of addiction?

– If it’s true that he’s addicted (to sex or anything else), what does that mean in terms of legal consequences?
