Civil servant looked for prostitutes every 2 hours to satisfy his sexual urge during working hours

Posted by temasektimes on May 7, 2012

A former civil servant afflicted with sex addiction lost his job after being caught being absent from his desk several times during the day with no good reasons given.

In an interview with Lianhe Zaobao on Sunday, a Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Li Jiaming revealed the plight of his patient who had to slip off from work to find prostitutes every two hours. If he was unable to go out of office, he would masturbate himself in the staff toilet.

Another researcher began by watching pornographic magazines and subsequently got hooked to watching pornographic video clips on the internet. He was eventually caught by his boss after downloading too many porn on the office computers.

Sex addiction is not an uncommon form of addiction problem in Singapore, but few sufferers step forward to be treated either due to ignorance of the condition or fearing embarrassment and being ostracized by their loved ones.

Psychiatrists interviewed by Lianhe Zaobao described sex addiction as similar to addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling, characterized by uncontrolled and repetitive behavior to satisfy the desire. Occasional causal sex with strangers or prostitutes is not considered a form of sex addiction.

If you think you may be suffering from sex addiction, you can contact the following agencies for help:

National Addictions Management Service: 6-RECOVER (6732 6837)

We Care family service center: 62946352

    Dear Sir/ Madam, I frequently come to your website for news. I find this article you post amazingly contradictory to your readers. On one hand you are trying to provide avenues to help others who might be addicted to sex but on the other hand you are providing this picture of a sexually provocative women in scantily clad underwear to entice your readers…I find it amusing…

    Bro, I think you got some sex problems.
    Cause you keep writing about prostitutes and sex.
    Maybe you’re old and can’t do it anymore, I don’t know.

    Get away from the computer and get yourself a girlfriend, a mistress or something.
    Not a prostitute ah.
