Skip to comments.Anthony Weiner’s sexual behavior may have underlying issues (No, really? REALLY?!?)
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 Weiners, although he and other experts cautioned that they could not speak to the former congressmans specific situation.
Its 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 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!
He is possessed
Most men with severe porn problems are usually highly isolated in their social lives.
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.
People are feeling they are pushed to act a certain way even though their intellect and their conscience may be telling them otherwise.
Or, he could just be a pervert.
The Weiner just ain’t right.
ever read portnoy’s complaint?
He has all the signs of EPE (Excessive Penis Envy)
Yes not just women are afflicted .....men get men can get it too....
“....the politicians today are mentally ill and pathological liars.”
New York deserves a Weiner for Mayor. A pervert city needs a pervert Mayor.
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....
so TinyWienie, Democrat, is now delivering on the Democrats’ complete Transparency, everybody can see everything pledge.
We should all be happy....o so very very happy...
"with his physiological and core spiritual problems."
"with his psychological and core spiritual problems."
or as the saying goes,
Let it All Hang Out!
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 had never heard of EPE.
I did hear that the Weiner also likes men.
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.
Well, Weiner, “can’t.”
He has to resort to Internet photos and phone sex..LOL.
Clinton had “babes?”
Never mind. I’m done with this thread.
That's pretty much my take on it all. It shouldn't be all that complicated to see that.
I never understood why Houma married him. Besides the jewish-muslim thing, she is attractive and well connected while he is ugly, perverted and really annoying.
That is a resume enhancement for Libs.
Can we at least stop electing little boys who like to show their wieners to office? That would be a start.
Hahaha! Those two could pass for brothers.
I think so. LOL
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. ;)
He looks a lot like Josef Goebbels.
But who says he hasn’t? I’d bet he has any number of vices. We just heard about one of them.
Says a lot doesn’t it?
Meet the new perv in town, Filner WeinerSpitzer.
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.
Weiner is a pathological liar, just like all Democrats..he is just doing what is in his DNA..plus he loves feet, primarily progressive women’s feet
and just think what city council meetings will be like if Spitzer becomes the pervert City Comptroller.
New York Times:
“Bill Clinton to Officiate at Congressmans Wedding”
Published: July 9, 2010
“Bill Clinton is not giving away his daughter Chelseas 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.”
You don’t understand. He is the victim here. It is not his fault. ;-)
It’s impossible to find a liberal politician who is a decent human being.
This guy is a real sicko.
He is a “F’n Pervert! Enough said. His wife is “Dog Ugly” Not her fault but to be stuck with that “twit” WE WE pounder is more than any woman deserves. Lust for power is a prevision in itself.
Not sure. Is being a typical slutty self-centered liberal dickhead considered an "underlying issue"?
*So that “I” can heal from the damage that I have caused.*
I think a ;lot of libs are good at heart, but highly misguided and warped, by the ones that are NOT.
True enough. They don’t understand that they are being used and that’s why they’re Useful Idiots.
