Swedish sex addict seeks help, molests therapist

Swedish sex addict seeks help, molests therapist

The man, who had sought out the female therapist hoping to be able to shake off his rampant sex addiction, was unable to contain his pent up passions for long, according to newspaper Metro.

Before they even began their conversation, the man allegedly made a run at the woman, proceeded to hold her arms down, and covered her face and neck with passionate kisses.

According to the paper, the man, reportedly in his fifties, then became more aggressive, making verbal demands that the therapist have sexual relations with him.

When she seemed less than keen to acquiesce to the man’s sordid suggestions, he tried to keep her from leaving the room, but she managed to push through and escape, running out of the room.

The man denies the allegations, saying that the whole thing is a giant misunderstanding.

However, the Helsingborg District Court found that the woman’s version of events was more credible, taking into consideration the fact that she has been working as a therapist for over twenty years.

The man was convicted of sexual molestation and has been sentenced to serve fifty hours of community service, according to the paper.

As the great philosopher Homer would said "Duh!"

Who in their right mind would agree to a sex addict being alone in a room with a female tharapist. Equally of the sexes has its limits. This surely is one where same gender counselling should be mandatory.

Do you really think the guy would do his job properly in the community service? I hope there are no female co-workers along. I would not like to say this but seriously, I sometimes don't get where the hell all these kind of decisions come to swedish mind?

I am the cure for this poor guy. He must marrie, or contact, Madam Christine Lagarde, President of the International Monetary Fund. The women suffers from anorgasmia and, therefore, urgently needs a sex- addict man. Now, the guy must be very carefull with Lagarde, she can eat up him.

@Cephalectomy

His requesting the woman therapist that should have started alarm bells ringing; not least with the therapist herself. There are occasions when sexuality-equality should not be followed. A self-confessed sex addict looking for a therapist of the opposite gender is one such occasion.

@Stonehenge

Yes, what an opportunity he's being given. Instead of just one woman to grope and attempt to rape he's being forced to go out into the community where there are many unsuspecting woman for him to prey on.

One more of the misleading items from The Local. Question:

The picture in this "story" portrays "something" with pants wearing women's shoes, so? Is than "something" a he, a she or an it (hen) according to the new Swedish definition of genders? Perhaps it is TL's way of showing us what gender equality is?

@iraniboy. In my opinion, you too, need a shrink.

The therapist needs to be a male next time!!

Will he be 'servicing' the community by helping other sex addicts?

He needs Lord Jesus in his life. Simple! The spirit of God will make him clean and whole again.

Haha - sex addict? What the heck is that? Somebody who likes sex a lot? Don't we all. Pathetic.
19:38 April 16, 2012 by PeterGr
The therapist's gender is irrelevant as sexual addiction doesn't distinguish between straight or gay patients.. As for the penalty for such lewd conduct, I hope he has learned his lesson...
12:11 March 19, 2013 by janeway
50 hours of community service? That's the meted out punishment for attempted rape. So, the next time, when he has a defenseless victim, will he then get 100 hours? Swedish courts are a disgrace!
