I’ve been watching with interest the debate that’s been raging in the mental health community for a number of years now about whether sex addiction actually exists. I was recently inspired by an article my colleague Dr. Joe Kort wrote (I’ve interviewed Dr. Kort on this blog about his book called, 10 Smart Things Gay Men Can Do to Improve Their Lives).
One of the topics that frequently comes up with my gay private practice clients is the issue of using Grindr to meet other gay men. I’m always interested in the wide range of reactions to this app and what men think and feel about it. Some of my clients have occasional fun using this app, while others get hooked on constantly being online and cruising for other men- often leading to lots of frustration and despair.
