"Perhaps the most interesting thing about the sex addiction movement--and certainly the most telling--is that it did not arise from the field of sex therapy or any other sexuality-related field... 'Sex addiction' has been adopted enthusiastically by the addiction community, and to a lesser extent by the marriage and family profession--the latter historically undertrained and uncomfortable with sexuality. You can, for example, become a licensed marriage counselor without ever hearing the words vibrator, clitoris, spanking, tongue-kissing, or panties during your education."

Marty Klein writing for The Humanist magazine.
