Writer Ethlie Ann Vare is a woman of many hats: a prolific TV and film writer, she’s also the author of Love Addict: Sex, Romance and Other Dangerous Drugs, as well as 10 other books. Her popular blog, AffectionDeficitDisorder, expands on much of what’s in Love Addict—namely, her own experiences with sex and love addiction, her recovery from it and information for potential SLA’s out there. Have I mentioned that she’s also been a rock critic for Billboard, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter as well as an E! TV talking head, not to mention the fact that she’s a serious historian? Oh and guess what? You, dear reader-slash-listener, can get answers to your sex and love addiction related questions on that aforementioned blog of hers. (Teaser: she’s also going to be answering some questions soon enough on this very site.) In this episode, she and I discuss bottoming out on love addiction, the time she spent in jail for drug dealing, the husband that got her into that and much, much more.
