    David Duchovny enters rehab... say it isn't so, Mulder...

    David Duchovny, best known for portraying Fox Mulder in The X Files, has entered rehab for a sex addiction.

    I do remember that the character of "Mulder" was in to porn, big time(mags and movies)... kind of makes you ponder where David ended and Mulder began. I am wishing him and Tea the best... I was kind of shocked when I read the blurb on MSNBC. Hopefully he will get the help he needs and his marriage with Tea will stay on solid ground...

    I'm not surprised. I recently read that he was getting busy with his tennis instructor. I love him and Tea and their family and hope they will weather this storm. My prayers for all of them.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I've always liked Tea; didn't care much for David but I wish him success in his recovery and also wish the best for Tea and the kids.

    Did you know that he used to star in the Red Shoe Diaries? (Not that I ever saw them) I read it on IMDB.

    Color me really naive but how in the world would you treat a sex addict?

    Isn't it all in the brain? It has to do with chemicals in being released right?

    What could the clinic do for David? Teach him how to widdle to take his mind off of sex? Perhaps basket weaving would do the trick.

    Don't get it. Chime in if anyone does.

    I remember my husband telling me this when David was on the x-files, although I don't know if IMDB was his source! He really does the hypersexual role on Californication with ease, I hope his family can withstand this, it's got to be devastating for his wife. It reminds me of Eric Benet and Halle Berry. Part of me wants to believe that it is simply a matter of the man keeping it in his pants, but I guess addiction is addiction, and it is not as simple as that for some people. I don't know what would be worst, a partner who is just a selfish jerk or one who just doesn't have control of their compulsions. Either one would be difficult.

    Man, I had such a huge crush on him when I was 12-14.

    ..Awkward....

    But I hope he gets help for his issues.

    I ponder the same thing, Tricia. Maybe it is intensive therapy, perhaps?

    Very well could be Elphaba. Sorry, I was very flip in my post. I am sure it is not funny to people who suffer from this. My ignorance is showing through.

    The man I know who was treated for sex addiction was using porn to avoid dealing with other issues in his life, like his relationship with his ex-wife, their children, his parents and his current wife. He wasn't actually sleeping with anyone else but he spent literally thousands of dollars a month on porn, both print and online, plus 900 lines. The straw that broke the camel's back was when his wife discovered he'd max'd out two $15K credit cards and they were denied a home equity loan because he'd fallen behind on mortgage payments.

    Going into residential treatment cut off his access to porn and forced him to concentrate on the emotional issues he had been avoiding. For the first two weeks it was intensive therapy for him. For the last two weeks it was intensive therapy with his current wife and with his ex-wife and children. They had to learn how to communicate, ground rules for dealing with each other (like "no badmouthing the other parent to the children"), etc.

    He also had to learn how to be a father to pre-teens because he'd allowed his addiction to porn get between him and his children.

    It wasn't exactly a happily ever after ending; his second wife divorced him. But he did re-build his relationship to his children and develop a civil relationship with his first ex-wife, which was really important for the children.

    I think sometimes pre-existing relationships can be necessary casualties to getting better. This is definitely not always the case but I can imagine with sexual addiction, the significant partner would have double the resentment and hurt given that those addicted are compulsively seeking something that the spouse or s.o. presumably is already giving them. Being the loved ones to anybody who is addicted is incredibly difficult, but separating the hurt resulting from this type of addiction to me seems that it would be even harder.
    Anyhow, it sounds like your friend has come a long way, so congratulations to him, and thank you for sharing. It was insightful to hear about a real case of sexual addiction, and how destructive it indeed can be.

    Again, my apologies for making light of this illness.

    Now that you explain it this is all very clear. It's like any addicition. It is only a sympton of the problem. The problem runs deep.

    ,Like a jerk I assumed it was only phsyical but in reality, like any addiction, it has an emotional core.

    Well, it starts out with...um...never mind, I don't know what you're talking about!

    I remember his wife saying that when she met him she liked the fact that he had a reputation in Hollywood for having an insatiable sex drive, then when they got together she said it wasn't so. So now that it appears he does, does that mean he just didn't with her? And how could he not, she's hot!

    I wonder if it has to do with the adrenaline rush of being secretive or being with someone that he really doesn't know?
