'Harvey Weinstein is giving sex addicts a bad name'
This kind of behaviour cannot be excused by sex addiction
– Paula Hall
In a week of shocking revelations from Hollywood, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has had a spectacular fall from grace, with each new sexual harassment accusation bringing with it more shame and anger amongst those who work in the industry. Yesterday, after his wife Georgina announced she was leaving him, news websites reported Weinstein had flown to Europe to check into a sex addiction clinic.
But can Weinstein's behaviour really be explained away as a sex addiction? Or is that just an excuse for his abhorrent actions?
Today we're joined by psychotherapist Paula Hall who says that Weinstein is giving sex addicts a bad name, and Colin Chapman, who suffers from a sex addiction himself.
