Anthony Weiner really can’t seem to keep it in his pants! And as shocking and shameful as it is, the former congressman has allegedly taken his sexting to the NEXT level, sending inappropriate pics WHILE next to his son Jordan, 5. Yuck! Sex experts have EXCLUSIVELY revealed to us just how ‘deep’ his problem may go.
Anthony Weiner, 51, has already lost his political career and now his wife, Huma Abedin, 40, announced on Aug. 29, that she is officially leaving Anthony. In an effort to understand why the former congressman would reportedly continue to cheat even though it hurts those around him, HollywoodLife.com reached out to a sex expert and an addiction expert, who revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY what may be at the root of Anthony’s issues.
“Anthony Weiner simply cannot help himself because what he suffers from is a compulsion and what drives the compulsion is underlying deep-seeded feelings of self-contempt,” New York sex expert Fern Arden told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The compulsion satisfies his need for power. He really feels powerless within himself.”
Wow — pretty deep, right? And according to Fern, sexting is what makes him feel “powerful,” which is why he’s allegedly “addicted.” “I would say he is a narcissist. I really don’t think he thinks he’s going to get caught. The compulsion is so powerful that it needs to be treated in therapy,” Fern added. And we honestly agree — therapy is never a bad idea, especially when your marriage is on the rocks!
Another major problem of Anthony’s, these experts believe, is that, he simply doesn’t think what he’s doing is wrong. “He most likely rationalizes his sexting behavior as not really cheating,” Fern concluded. “I suspect he’s not actually having sex with other people, which provides a narcissistic justification for his behavior.”
And addiction expert Steven Ornstein agrees. “He’s under the illusion that sexting doesn’t really count because it’s not actual sex,” Steven explained. “And this makes no sense because it IS cheating, sexting is cheating. He is in denial and needs professional help.” There seems to be a similar theme here! And while we can’t accurately diagnose Anthony ourselves, a sex addiction does NOT seem too far-fetched at this point. In fact, Steven believes that Anthony is most definitely an addict.
“Anthony Weiner suffers from sex addiction,” he told us. “He’s in complete denial and continues to demonstrate high risk behavior, even in front of his young child. This shows the severity of his sexual deviancy.” The allegedly incriminating photo, which surfaced on Aug. 28, reportedly shows a selfie of Anthony in his bed NEXT to his sleeping son wearing nothing but a pair of boxer briefs. Even worse, he’s clearly aroused as he was reportedly having a hot sexting session with a 40-year-old brunette divorcee, according to the New York Post.
“He continues to lose everything and this is what addiction does. He lost his political career the first time. Now he’s going to lose his family,” Steven concluded. “A person who is a non-addict would have figured this out a long time ago and would have stopped. He is incapable of stopping on his own.” We certainly hope Anthony gets the help he needs if that’s what’s best.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you completely disgusted by Anthony’s actions? Do YOU think he has a problem?
