( An article from Yahoo news: 14th Feb 10)
Several couples at some point or the other have relationship outside their marriage. Most of them are hidden and secret, stirring gamut of emotions, and one of them is GUILT. HT City spoke to a few Delhiites, who confessed feeling guilty and others who defended themselves. The moment of truth Businessman Shailendra Kewalramani is married for four years, and confesses that he shares the most blissful moments and agonies with his ladylove and not his wife. "My wife and I lack bonding. I found the completeness that I always longed for, only after I met my ladylove." Shailendra denies suffering from guilt pangs for cheating his wife, and says, "Guilt would have been there only if I had any feelings for my wife. Shailendra's was an arranged marriage, but Renuka (name changed), who had a love marriage got emotionally involved with another man. Reason? No emotional bonding and her husband's touring job that gradually drew her towards another man. "I respect my husband. He is good and I care for him, but somehow the love and spark has vanished. We don't quarrel over anything and are fine with whatever the other person does." Renuka shares every bit with this other friend she has found. "I get all the emotional support from him," says Renuka, who at times feel being at fault for having a relationship outside marriage. Think rationally. Deepak Dhawan has found a good friend in his wife, but his soulmate is someone else. He says, "My wife is supportive, but there's no sex life. I do feel guilty, but this is how things have shaped up now."

Is the 12- step programme any good for sex addiction? (an article in Yahoo news 10.03.10)
Tiger Woods's public apology for his infidelity has fuelled the long-standing debate about sexual disorders and how to treat them. It was Clinton who first offered us a glimpse of how sex can ruin a person's life. More recently, Tiger Woods's string of sexual escapades has confirmed this idea that 'out of control' sexual behaviour which seems addictive can have far reaching consequences. Sex addiction is being recognised as a problem the world over but in the Indian context, very little research has been done on this problem and its treatment. .. Undoubtedly sex addiction has to be defined carefully as a person might have a high libido, nothing more, and his sexual needs might not match his partners, which leads to him being branded unfairly as an addict. ''There are no clear cut lines to define what too much sex is. If a man with a high libido finds a match in his partner then there is no problem. But when the desire to have sex takes over a person's life and renders it dysfunctional, then the psychological and physical condition should be analysed,'' says DrWadia.

Is the 12- step programme any good for sex addiction? (an article in Yahoo news 10.03.10)
While the idea that anyone can be addicted to sex is still scoffed at, using this as a 'medical' excuse for promiscuous behavior makes the matter more controversial. Especially since this is not even recognised as a disorder by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), considered the psychiatrist's Bible and ''hypersexual disorder'' is under consideration for the next edition. Woods recently offered a public apology for his infidelity, saying he was returning to his religious faith and admitting that he had ''work to do.'' The 12-step is intended to provide psychological, social and spiritual support for addicts. Crucial to this is the admission that their addiction isn't in their control and that there is a greater power that can give strength. Past mistakes are rectified with the help of a sponsor who is an experienced member. The final step is to learn to live a new life with a new code of behaviour and help others who suffer from the same addictions or compulsions. ''We use many of the principles of the 12 - step in our counselling ,'' declares Elizabeth Selhore, director of Sahara, an NGO that runs a rehabilitation programme for drug and alcohol addiction. Selhore admits that while sex addiction is not ''acknowledged'' in India, it is a problem nonetheless. ''Anything can become an addiction, including love and sex.''

Is the 12- step programme any good for sex addiction? (an article in Yahoo news 10.03.10)
One of the arguments against the programme is that it focuses on the emotional and spiritual, and neglects the physical. ..Calling yourself an addict is essential in the 12-step plan. This admission is hard for some, as is the social involvement that is part of the plan. Many people struggling with addiction find this hard to deal with as it makes them uncomfortable or nervous. Some feel that the need for belief in a Higher Power which is integral for those following the plan also comes in the way of its universal applicability and efficacy. ..The programme talks of God or a Higher Power but doesn't give any name to this power, so it's applicable to everyone and it doesn't matter whether you are a Christian or Hindu. The 12-step requires you to call yourself an addict and accept responsibility for your behaviour and actions
