24 Celebrity Sex Addicts – Self-confessed or rumored by the media

For all those people who have some sort of sex addiction and are looking for a good guide to sex addiction treatment and recovery, keep in mind that you’re not alone.  There are celebrities that seem to be sex addicts, if you believe the media.

These 24 stars have all been named as sex addicts by the media at one point or another and they’ve since addressed the mad rumors about their supposedly uncontrollable urges. They all claim that reporters misquoted or misconstrued their personal situations in order to make more shocking headlines. Some had treatment or checked in to rehab and made headlines for supposedly being completely addicted to sex, so much so that they needed professional help. Refuting the stories, these celebrities all say they’ve never really been sex addicts at all.

Wilt Chamberlain: In 1991, the late NBA player wrote his second autobiography, A View from Above. It was in this detailed biography that Chamberlain claimed he had sex with 20,000 women. HOLD UP! Let’s do the math here. For this to be true, good ol’ Wilt would have had to have sex with more than nine women a week, starting from the tender age of 15 continuing for 40 years. Ain’t nobody touching this man’s record.

Michael Douglas: In the early 1990s Douglas was labelled a “sex-addict” by his ex-wife and sought treatment in a Los Angeles clinic. It has been widely reported that his current wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones’s will receive a “straying fee” if Douglas ? a self-confessed “recovering sex-addict” ? cheats on her. Nice.

Robbie Williams: The singer has admitted to sleeping with countless call girls and has also bedded a number of fans. Williams, who has dated a string of celebrities including Nicole Kidman and Rachel Hunter, says he couldn’t control himself on set of his ‘Come Undone’ video where he is seen in bed with two porn stars: “I was thinking some of the sex stuff in there should be performed. There was lots of naked breast touching, us three kissing altogether.”

Gene Simmons: This list just isn’t complete without him. This Kiss frontman has reportedly slept with over 4,600 women.

Billy Bob Thornton: According to British tabloid the Daily Star, Billy Bob Thornton cheated on estranged wife Angelina Jolie with his sex therapist. The newspaper claims Angelina ordered Thornton to attend sessions at a clinic after discovering he had cheated on her with a string of groupies and members of their household staff. But rather than use the counseling to cure his sex addiction, the newspaper claims Billy Bob seduced the therapist. Bet your kicking yourself now hey Billy boy.

Eric Benet: In 2002 actress Halle Berry’s estranged husband, Eric Benet, reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation center for treatment of a sex addiction. Benet later told Primtime Thursday’s that he was “not a sex addict. I am a person who … through a series of emotional events, troubles, challenges, made some really, really stupid, painful mistakes.” Nice try Eric.

Ozzy Osbourne: The rocker has been likened to a battery-powered Duracell bunny by wife Sharon, because he’s always up for sex. Sharon claims: “He’s like a rabbit, he’s terrible. Every song gets him in the mood for love. “He’s just like that battery. Instead of that little rabbit they should have Ozzy’s willy banging a drum.”

Lindsay Lohan: The UK’s Metro newspaper ran an article claiming the actress was addicted to sex: “The 20-year-old actress, who has been linked with dozens of men, even hinted that she may be a sex addict. ‘Being an actress is lonely, and I never want to be alone,’ she said. ‘I hate sleeping alone. I like being able to be in different relationships – being able to see a few people. ‘I’m not really like a crazy addict. I mean – I enjoy having sex’”

Calum Best: While we’re on the topic Calum ‘La Lohan’ Best once told the UK’s Sun newspaper: “I’m a bad boy. I go out and get drunk, I get high on cocaine and I do stupid debauched things with the wrong women. When I’m high I do wild stupid shit. I’m a red-blooded male and I’m addicted to sex. I don’t have to be like my dad, but I feel his blood running through my veins. I need to sort out my problems before it’s too late.”

Kanye got caught up in a sex addict rumor when he told Playboy magazine that he loves porn so much he has some on him “at all times” but he bashed the rumors by commenting following the interview: “You sit down with these f**king journalists and the second you say what you think, they use it against you. I say, ‘yeah, I like porn’, then it’s all: ‘Kanye West: Sex Addict.'”

Britney Spears: A source close to Spears once claimed that the pop-tart induldged in sex marathon’s with now ex Kevin Federline. The insider is quoted in the India Daily as saying “Britney says sex with Kevin is ten times better than with her ex-lover Justin Timberlake. They’re constantly in bed together in one long sex marathon.”

Angelina Jolie: Who can forget the Tombraider stars ex lesbian lover Jenny Shimizu, who told the UK’s Sun newspaper, that Angelina had a collection of knives that she liked to use in the bedroom. Hot.

Tom Sizemore: Troubled actor Tom Sizemore is reportedly battling a rare medical condition called priapism – a form of sex addiction which doctors believe could have been caused by years of alcohol and drug abuse. Sizemore’s manager was quoted as saying, “He can have sex nine times without stopping. His condition explains his sexual addiction. He’s in the midst of a massive depression, but he’s making tremendous progress.”

Colin Farrell: The drugs, the sex tape, rehab. Do we need to say anymore? Really?

Usher supposedly once said he is a “Sexaholic” but he refuted claims that he is addicted to having sex: “I never said I was a sex addict. I don’t even know what that means really. I’m not addicted to it because I can control my hormones. I don’t have sex if I don’t want to, but do I enjoy it? Absolutely. If I could have more of it, I would, because it’s great. Meeting women is the easiest thing in my life.”

Paris Hilton: Her sex video ‘One Night In Paris’ should quite simply be changed to ‘Everybody’s Been In Paris.’ There’s no denying that the Hilton heir is known for her rather insatiable appetite for sex.

Jack Nicholson: We all know good ol’ Jack loves sex. According to his attorney he has four illegitimate children (that we know of) and claims that wearing a condom is like wearing a “warm garbage bag.” The man has a point. 

Bill Clinton: Why would a popular president facing intense media scrutiny jeopardize his administration and his place in world history by receiving oral sex from a 21-year-old White House intern?
