I had Playboy. My boys have Laguna Beach art. It's OK. It relieves me of my fatherly duties, which, let's face it, are sometimes painfully awkward. Besides, my boys cringe whenever I play dad anyway.

When I say it's a "surprise," they know it's going to be "some stupid art thing. " "But it will have naked women," I said, trying to find parking. They mumbled something from the back seat, then chuckled.

While many associate sex addiction with the high-profile struggles of celebrities like Tiger Woods or David Duchovny, Laguna Beach-based New Life Ministries says the issue isn't just a problem for those in the public eye. Instead, they say, it's an addiction that everyday men suffer in private. Founder of New Life Ministries Steve Arterburn said he didn't realize the demand for sex addiction counseling until he co-authored the book, "Every Man's Battle: Winning the War on Sexual Temptation One Victory at a Time," with Fred Stoeker more than 10 years ago. With more than 3 million copies sold, Arterburn decided to start an intensive workshop to address the needs of thousands of men who claimed to be struggling with sexual addiction.
