Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men


Robert Weiss, LCSW


Topic: Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men

Gay men live in a world of deeply conflicted sexual messages: liberated, responsible, experimental, safe, cutting edge, traditional, dominant, submissive, sex-positive and celibate. Given all that, it's no wonder that one of the most complicated aspects of recovering from sex addiction is determining if the individual is even suffering from it.

From the director of the Sexual Recovery Institute in Santa Monica comes this timely and important contribution to the body of recovery literature. Hopefully this book will provide understanding to gay men seeking healthy sexual expression.

Guest: Robert Weiss, LCSW
