Thats the Torah truth from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a family counselor who hosts the TLC show Shalom in the Home.
In his new book The Broken American Male and How to Fix Him (St. Martins Press), Rabbi Shmuley says American men are becoming sex and sports addicts so they can numb themselves from the pressures of life.
He says, The American male is broken because he lives in a culture that values money over family. Hes made to feel like a failure because hes not Bill Gates, so he turns to destructive addictions.
And according to Rabbi Shmuley, those destructive addictions also include orgasm addiction, which is when men have sex without emotion or intimacy.
Rabbi Shmuley says, No one cares about a mans heart, and he becomes depressed, so they use sex to dull the pain. Men dont want to feel or show emotion unless its through sports. Men need to learn to not be afraid to cry, thats what its about.
