Skip to comments.Anthony Weiner’s sexual behavior may have underlying issues (No, really? REALLY?!?)
Posted on 07/24/2013 10:06:16 PM PDT by Yossarian
The lewd behavior that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner engaged in suggests he is struggling with more than bad behavior and could be dealing with a variety of issues driving his problematic sexual behavior, experts said.
But doctors, clinical psychologists and sex therapists differ on the role of biology, as well as issues such as anxiety, depression and insecurity.
Fred Berlin, director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said many of his patients exhibit behavior similar to Weiners, although he and other experts cautioned that they could not speak to the former congressmans specific situation.
Its driven behavior, said Berlin, a psychiatrist who has been treating patients for more than 30 years. People are feeling they are pushed to act a certain way even though their intellect and their conscience may be telling them otherwise.

I sincerely suggest that doing this out of the public eye, and when permanently out of public office, is the best way of doing this.
That being said, this headline wins the "Captain Obvious" Award of the week!
He is possessed
Most men with severe porn problems are usually highly isolated in their social lives.
Almost all the politicians today are mentally ill and habitual liars. There are very few good people in any part of the political class.
I agree - of an addiction, at least.
As many have found themselves addicted to sexual aspects of the internet, I actually have sympathy for Wiener that man (ok, the male). Fighting it is difficult - there's a reason it's called an addiction.
However, last I heard ol' Anthony has claimed that he doesn't have an addiction. That doesn't bode well for any real reformation. He's still caught up in his own ego.
People are feeling they are pushed to act a certain way even though their intellect and their conscience may be telling them otherwise.
Or, he could just be a pervert.
The Weiner just ain’t right.
ever read portnoy’s complaint?
He has all the signs of EPE (Excessive Penis Envy)
Yes not just women are afflicted .....men get men can get it too....
“....the politicians today are mentally ill and pathological liars.”
New York deserves a Weiner for Mayor. A pervert city needs a pervert Mayor.
I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
The D’s promised us complete Transparency in government...
and O has done exactly the opposite instead, covering everything up....
so TinyWienie, Democrat, is now delivering on the Democrats’ complete Transparency, everybody can see everything pledge.
We should all be happy....o so very very happy...
"with his physiological and core spiritual problems."
"with his psychological and core spiritual problems."
or as the saying goes,
Let it All Hang Out!
He is a pervert because his wife sleeps with Hilliary and besides, who cares about this Weiner anyways?
If he had self-respect (which he does not) he would drop out of the race. Voters should just brush him aside.
I had never heard of EPE.
I did hear that the Weiner also likes men.
