Yes, he has the sex addiction. Not to mention the misogyny pandemic and the sociopathy syndrome.

To monsters of this sort, compassion and morality are weaknesses. Charm is a skillset best understood in its original meaning: an element of evil magic used to control and manipulate others.

Most sex addicts are not sociopaths, and most do not rape anyone, but all are bad news to anyone involved with them. Their craving for sexual stimulation is unquenchable and divorced from joy or even actual pleasure. They are not capable of experiencing true mutuality in their compulsion.

I'm so sorry this happened to you, Roxana. Thank you for sharing your cautionary tale.
