Scott Disick has said that he is a 'horrible sex addict'. The father-of-three confessed to his 'condition' earlier this month on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Balestrieri added that a major indicator of a sex addiction is when it leads to an end of a relationship because the infidelity or the sex is made known.
The behavior is out of control. Disick pictured with Maggie on Saturday, May 27 revealed his addiction earlier in May Balestrieri does note that some people will use the excuse of being a sex addict to get sympathy or escape a certain situation. Sometimes there is a secondary motive there. Researchers from the University of Cambridge claim that online porn is fueling more and more people to become addicted to sex. Balestrieri also said a sex addict will need more and more stimulation to achieve the same high and will engage in riskier behavior to achieve that feeling.
