Well, I don’t really keep up on the goings on of celebrity sex therapists
quacks. So many unicorns, so little time. But an alert chump sent word that Douglas Weiss announced his divorce. Which of course sent me down a rabbit hole of “Who is Douglas Weiss?”
What a very interesting little hole that was.
Dr. Douglas Weiss is a psychologist and the founder of Heart to Heart Counseling Center, which specializes in the treatment of sexual addicts, intimacy anorexics and their spouses. He has counseled with sex addicts and their partners for almost three decades. Heart to Heart Counseling Center maintains weekly 3 and 5 Day Intensives that couples fly in from all over the world to attend, dozens of weekly groups, hundreds of weekly appointments with 16 counselors on staff. Dr. Weiss personally continues to provide 5 Day Intensives at the Center. Dr. Weiss has been in recovery for over 34 years, he and all of the counselors at Heart to Heart verify their sobriety with regular polygraphs.
Dr. Weiss has authored more than 40 books and offers 30 therapeutic DVDs for men, women and marriages. He is proud to be the first author to write a book for the partners of sex addicts.
Dr. Weiss was the first to coin the term Intimacy Anorexia which is the withholding of emotional, physical and spiritual intimacy in marriage.
I suspect only chumps are “anorexics.” Blameshifting being the bread and butter of the Reconciliation Industrial Complex. Does your husband have a hooker habit? Hey, your Intimacy Anorexia caused it. (Previously in misogyny, we called this the “frigid wife.”)
I can’t believe this guy is getting a divorce. Hang on Doug, shouldn’t you be sending yourself $399 for the cure? With all your youtube videos and weekly intensives, you couldn’t save your marriage?
Yes, but what do his satisfied clients say, Tracy?
Here’s a review of his services over at Sisterhood of Support, a site for partners of “sex addicts.” (A diagnosis that doesn’t exist in the DSM, btw. But we do believe in fuckwits here.)
“When I stated I was so devastated that I didn’t want to have sex with my husband, he (Doug Weiss) told me that if I didn’t have sex with my husband I would lose him. (I guess nonemotional, objectifying sex is okay with him.”
“He said that I had full blown intimacy anorexia because I did not want to have objectifying sex with my husband after I found out that he had unprotected sex with over 1500 different prostitutes, my sister, his patients, gym members, nurses, drug reps, etc. … and did nothing to rectify the marriage and lie, lie, lie.”
Wow, Doug. What a ringing endorsement. How do I get on Dr. Phil? Or one of those Lifetime Specials?
If you Google around, you’ll read he scrubs his reviews. I don’t know if that’s true, but at wellness.com, a couple people who paid for his costly retreats, tried to leave reviews, but oops, developer problem! when you try to read them. What a cowinkydince.

You know what you need when you find about about your partner’s hooker habit? Sex tips! That’s what you need. Here!
“ALL WOMEN NEED THIS,” says Doug.
Really? Even the gay ones?
ALL OF YOU.
What about those of us living alone in a bunker full of cats?
What if you don’t want a husband? Or if you have one, but he’s presently engaged with 1500 hookers?
ALL WOMEN! Bow down! Suck!
And you’re telling me Lisa got tired of your ass?
Funny how you need space and privacy to heal. But your clients need blameshifting and sex tips.
I’d love to know more, but won’t ask out of respect
