Anthony Weiner’s sexual behavior may have underlying issues (No, really? REALLY?!?)
The Washington Post ^ | 7/24/2013 | Lena H. Sun and Meeri Kim

Posted on 07/24/2013 10:06:16 PM PDT by Yossarian

The lewd behavior that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner engaged in suggests he is struggling with more than bad behavior and could be dealing with a variety of issues driving his problematic sexual behavior, experts said.

But doctors, clinical psychologists and sex therapists differ on the role of biology, as well as issues such as anxiety, depression and insecurity.

Fred Berlin, director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said many of his patients exhibit behavior similar to Weiner’s, although he and other experts cautioned that they could not speak to the former congressman’s specific situation.

“It’s driven behavior,” said Berlin, a psychiatrist who has been treating patients for more than 30 years. “People are feeling they are pushed to act a certain way even though their intellect and their conscience may be telling them otherwise.”

I honestly wish Anthony Weiner the best of luck in dealing with his physiological and core spiritual problems. We all have our problems, myself included - no joke.

I sincerely suggest that doing this out of the public eye, and when permanently out of public office, is the best way of doing this.

That being said, this headline wins the "Captain Obvious" Award of the week!

Most men with severe porn problems are usually highly isolated in their social lives.

Weiner is a sick pervert and pathological liar.

Almost all the politicians today are mentally ill and habitual liars. There are very few good people in any part of the political class.

I agree - of an addiction, at least.

As many have found themselves addicted to sexual aspects of the internet, I actually have sympathy for Wiener that man (ok, the male). Fighting it is difficult - there's a reason it's called an addiction.

However, last I heard ol' Anthony has claimed that he doesn't have an addiction. That doesn't bode well for any real reformation. He's still caught up in his own ego.

Or, he could just be a pervert.

I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
The D’s promised us complete Transparency in government...
and O has done exactly the opposite instead, covering everything up....

We should all be happy....o so very very happy...

He is a pervert because his wife sleeps with Hilliary and besides, who cares about this Weiner anyways?

If he had self-respect (which he does not) he would drop out of the race. Voters should just brush him aside.

I don’t think he has a sex problem, I don’t think Clinton or Spitzer did either. I think their/many lib/Dems ‘problem’ is summed up totally in three words.

‘Because I can”.

If Weiner could he’d have a string of babes, like Bill Clinton, instead of being limited to dirty texts and email.

That's pretty much my take on it all. It shouldn't be all that complicated to see that.

But he ‘can’ do whatever he does and knows there is no blowback...only benefit. His ouster became a political move as he knew full well he’d get taken care of. And he has. So he kept right on doing it.

Besides, If I was forced into a political marriage to a lesbian muslim, I’d probably take up porn/sexting too. ;)

I never understood why some dudes take a picture of their wieners and sent it through the phone. Besides it being a harassment suit waiting to happen, Wiener may end up on the internet.

New York Times:

“Bill Clinton to Officiate at Congressman’s Wedding”
Published: July 9, 2010

“Bill Clinton is not giving away his daughter Chelsea’s hand in marriage for another three weeks. But he is going to get a little practice at the altar on Saturday, when he officiates at the wedding of Representative Anthony D. Weiner and Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

Anthony Weiner’s sexual behavior may have underlying issues (No, really? REALLY?!?)

Not sure. Is being a typical slutty self-centered liberal dickhead considered an "underlying issue"?

I'm not even a psychiatrist and I can tell that Weiner’s problem is nothing new - it's just exhibitionism - a plain, old-fashioned flasher using modern technology - accompanied with narcissism. That's why he is in politics!

Yes it was. Weiner is an arrogant little prick. Back when he resigned I was applauding the move because I remember this video and what an ass he made of himself and how he deserved his fate. I can't believe the worm is back.
