Podcast: Joanne Brodie Explains Why Sex Usually Precedes Other Addictions

People Who Are Addicted to SexJoanne Brodie joined Sue Grant-Marshall for her Reading Matters show on Radio Today to discuss her recently published book, People Who Are Addicted to Sex.

“Sex addiction is not necessarily about sex as such”, Brodie explains, saying that it a commonly misunderstood condition. She says that food and sex addictions usually “precede any other addictions, because one generally starts to look around for ways to make oneself feel better.”

Brodie discusses how her own sex addiction started when she was a young adult and says that it was only after she had been clean for many years that memories of being abused as a child surfaced.
