Addicted to Sex

Sangita Myska delves into the secretive world of porn and sex addiction.

The term 'sex addiction' is bandied about the news and on therapy couches. But can you really be addicted to sex in the same way a smoker is addicted to nicotine or is it just a good excuse for bad behaviour? And if it is a disease, can it be cured through treatment? What exactly happens in a sex clinic?
With exclusive access to the Laurel Centre, one of the UK's leading sex addiction treatment centres, journalist Sangita Myska meets the patients, their partners, and the therapists attempting to cure them.

Producer: Sarah Shebbeare
