Clinical psychologist Dr Tanya Byron explores the fine line between eccentric and pathological behaviour
Dr Tanya Byron asks why we judge some expressions of sexual desire as eccentric but within normal bounds, and condemn others as repugnant and dangerous? Tanya spends time with a self-described sex addict who has had more than 5,000 partners. He insists he is normal and argues that most men would do the same if given half the chance. Tanya also meets with a woman who insists that a low libido is the norm, and that most women want far less sex than their male counterparts. Tanya also confronts the case of a man who believes there should be no age of consent.

Hearing controversial views from those who believe we are in danger of absolving weak and selfish people from taking responsibility for their own choices, she asks how far we should we go with the concept of addiction. Should we believe someone who says they are a sex addict? Or the teenager who claims to be addicted to video games? Tanya examines some unconventional treatments.
