Gay Men, Sex Addiction and Depression

A new report compiled by the Medius Institute for Gay Men’s Health — a small, New York-based organization founded in June 2005 — suggests that since gay men have higher rates of depression than the general population, they inevitably also are more likely to engage in high-risk behavior associated with depression, including unsafe sex and drug use.

Can Love Be An Addiction?

Can love really be an addiction?  Stanton Peele says this:

There is an understandable resistance to the idea that a human relationship can be equivalent psychologically to a drug addiction. Yet it is not unreasonable to look for addiction between lovers when psychologists find the roots of drug addiction in childhood dependency needs and stunted family relationships. Chein, Winick, and other observers interpret drugs to be a kind of substitute for human ties. In this sense, addictive love is even more directly linked to what are recognized to be the sources of addiction than is drug dependency.

Teen Prostitution on the Rise

According to this article, teenage prostitution is increasing in numbers with approximately 650,000 teens having prostituted themselves.  These are sickening numbers and most of them are runaways and come from homes where they have been abused in some way.

Teens today are so much more sexually advanced, in part, because of the availability of pronography and because of the endless sexualized images they see in the media.  The world of porn gets glamorized and offers promise of money, “fun” or a “cool” life.  Those who end up on the streets find anything but fun.  They are tragically abused by older, predatory men.

When are we going to grow ourselves up as a culture and stop the madness?  When are people going to deal with their dysfunction and stop passing it down to their kids?  Why have our kids become disposable, throwaways?
