If there’s one thing Dr. Drew Pinsky knows a lot about, it’s sex! He’s just signed on for a VH1 show called Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew. During the show, Dr. Drew will treat a group of Los Angeles people who have sex compulsion issues. And he thought his work was cut out for him on Sober House! This sounds equally as challenging!
In Sex Rehab, Dr. Drew Pinsky will try to shed light on some of the misconceptions about the issue. Eight one-hour episodes have been ordered and the show will premiere this fall.
VH1 released a statement about their new project:
“In this eight-episode one-hour series, Dr. Drew is turning his attention and cameras on a very widespread but rarely talked about addiction. Sexual compulsion afflicts roughly 6% of the American population and carries the same devastating consequences as any other addiction. For addicts, sex isn’t even pleasurable, but rather a way to escape the pain of past loss, childhood trauma, abuse and abandonment. Like many other addictions, their habits can cost them their jobs, their marriages, even their lives. Despite all this, the affliction is often dismissed because it's not understood how something as natural and beautiful as sex can be an addiction.”
So deep, VH1! We have to give them credit for thinking outside the box on this one. Will you tune in?
