September 23, 2020, 12:06PM 2 of 8 Mike Caussin Sipa USA via AP Mike Caussin discussed his sex addiction in his joint memoir with wife Jana Kramer, The Good Fight. The couple separated in 2016 when he entered rehab for his addiction, and reunited the next year. “”I want to be very clear about something: society has had the nerve to call sex addiction a ‘married man’s excuse’ to which I say bull…(wait for it)…s**t,” Mike writes in The Good Fight. “Addiction is not an excuse at all, and I make sure to never use it as such. However it is an explanation.” September 23, 2020, 12:06PM 3 of 8 Jada Pinkett Smith Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP Jada Pinkett Smith confessed on Red Table Talk that she’s suffered from a sex addiction in the past, saying that she “went cold turkey” to conquer it. “I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things,” Jada said. “It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behavior that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at.” September 23, 2020, 12:06PM 4 of 8 Lamar Odom AP Lamar Odom wrote in his 2019 memoir, Darkness to Light, that he has had sex with over 2000 women.
