Hooked On Love: Developing An Addiction To Sex

As our series on addiction continues, we focus on sex and love dependencies.

There's still a lot of skepticism surrounding whether or not people can be addicted to love. But Farai Chideya gets insight from two authors who specialize in the topic: Rachel Resnick and Kelly McDaniel

Resnick wrote Love Junkie, a memoir documenting her own struggle with love addiction. McDaniel is a counselor specializing in sex and love addiction. She authored the book Ready to Heal.
