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.
