This is an interview you want to hear!!
Of course, it would be great to end the conversation here, but we can’t! Yes, Addicted has a star studded cast, Sharon Neal, Boris Kudjo, William Levy, Tasha Smith, Tyson Beckford, just to name a few. And, this movie has plenty of spicy scenes that will keep you at the end of your seat, but let’s not forget that behind all the glitz and glamour there is a subject that doesn’t get enough attention.
Addicted is a movie about a topic that we don’t talk about as much as we should, sexual addiction. It is a big problem and many people suffer from it silently, filled with shame and embarrassment, if they even identify the problem. It is so real, it breaks up families, marriages, and just like any addiction, it can be incredibly challenging to the people whose lives are touched by it. Even more alarming, are some of the stats, there seems to be a tie between sexual abuse victims and sexual addiction.
Some people have experience with addiction, but if it’s not a problem that you have you may not understand it, or the destruction it causes. This movie shows first hand the cost of addiction, how no one is safe from it’s touches, and how to identify it.
I hope you go out and support the movie, and take the time to find out more about this issue.
