Sangita Myska meets Paul, he’s slept with a thousand people but can’t have sex with someone he loves.

Sangita Myska meets Paul, he’s slept with a thousand people but can’t have sex with someone he loves.

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? Through a series of raw, barely edited interviews, this podcast is a search for that answer. Sangita Myska goes behind the scenes at a sex addiction centre to meet the patients, their partners, and the therapists attempting to cure them. It’s not for the faint hearted, we've kept in the explicit language - no BBC bleeping here - because we think it helps you understand the people you're listening to.
