Good TV movie that deals with an issue(sex addict) that deserves more attention.
24 July 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

A few months ago on Lifetime I watched this educational and informative TV movie, and it was great! The acting was well done by real husband and wife Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna. I'm sure many men suffer from the problem of being a sex-addict and don't want to receive help. While the life of their many love ones are destroyed including the many marriages it breaks. Sex, Lies & Obsession shows it all the chronic problem of addiction and family problems, but most of all the courage to seek help with treatment. I'm sure this will show again on the Lifetime Networks please watch it you will enjoy.
