As reported by the Daily Mail, Brand describes in his autobiography that he had been treated in a clinic for 30 days for his sex addiction in 2005. Before that, he had regular sex with ten women and numerous one-night stands. “It is very difficult for us men to have a healthy attitude towards sex. I grew up as the son of a single mother in a small town. There wasn’t much to do there but get drunk and watch porn. Everything I could about sex know, I learned from porn, “he said in 2014 in an interview with “Bild am Sonntag”.

It lets you escape from your emotional and psychological self and gives you a kick that can become addicting.”

A decisive moment in his childhood was “the starting point of an absolute porn addiction,” says West: “When I was five years old I found a ‘Playboy’ edition that my father left lying around. Since then, almost every decision has been made that I’ve met in my life so far. ” The addiction even increased after his mother Donda passed away in 2007: “Some people drown their grief in drugs. I drowned them in my sex addiction.” He believed that sex was even a tougher drug for him than opium and heroin could have been. How did he finally get away from it? “I thank God for saving me physically, mentally and spiritually.”
