To mark the video release of the so-real-it-hurt movie on sex addiction, Shame, some of the world's leading sex addiction experts will be hosting a screening and panel discussion. On April 17 at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, Clinical Director of the Center for Healthy Sex Alex Katehakis, Logo TV's Bad Sex host Chris Donahue and Love Addict: Sex, Romance and Other Dangerous Drugs author Ethlie Ann Vare will be discussing sex addiction as it's displayed in the film. "I love the idea of combining cinema and psychology to get people thinking about the cultural problems we face and how cultural and psychological forces co-create how we're evolving as human beings," says Katehakis, who is also the author of the sexual sobriety tome Erotic Intelligence. "I'm hoping this event inspires people to take SLAA more seriously, identify it in their friends and family so as to encourage them to get help, and for therapists to pay more attention to the signs and symptoms." Tickets can be purchased in advance here
