Sex, Lies & Obsession
A seemingly perfect marriage is threatened when the wife discovers evidence of her husband's sexual addiction.
Joanna Thomas, a high school drama teacher, has been happily married for 15 years to Cameron Thomas, a successful orthopedic surgeon. Joanna's life seems complete until she begins to suspect that Cameron is having an affair. Her worst fears are confirmed when her intuition leads her to follow him one morning, ending up at an apartment complex. In horrified disbelief, Joanna watches Cameron embrace another woman. After Joanna tells her husband to leave their home, a distraught Cameron heads straight to the red light district to pick up a prostitute. Weeks later, Joanna allows Cameron to move back into the house, although she's still suspicious of his every move. Things seem to return to normal until one night she gets a call from Cameron, who has been arrested for soliciting a prostitute.
An enraged Joanna breaks open Cameron's locked desk drawer and discovers a key to the apartment where she had followed him earlier. There, she finds stacks of porn magazines, drawers full of condoms, oils, and X-rated videos -- Cameron's very own den of iniquity. Joanna learns that Cameron's double life included frequenting prostitutes for years, visits to strip clubs and frequent phone sex. In order to avoid an embarrassing court appearance, Cameron is ordered to see a pyschologist, who requests that Joanna also attend. Joanna and Cameron learn that he may be a sex addict. Cameron reacts to the news by storming out of the office, and going to the one place where he finds solace, a strip club. He begins to observe the behavior of several men at the club, and eventually finds himself in a porn shop feeding quarters into a peep show. Desperate and overwrought, Cameron runs home to Joanna and admits he has a problem, begging for help.
Cameron continues his therapy sessions with the psychologist and begins attending Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings. Feeling like his life is back on track, Cameron approaches Joanna about moving back in, but Joanna isn't ready, and they quarrel. An angry Cameron heads straight for the red-light district to cruise for prostitutes. Only this time something stops him. He phones the one person who can help him, his sponsor Carl. Three months later, Cameron stands before his group of fellow Sex Addicts to receive his 90-day medallion for abstaining. Joanna arrives at the meeting, but time will tell if she can forgive Cameron's betrayal, if Cameron can live a life free from sexual addiction and if together they can rebuild the life they once knew.
