Dax Shepard thinks he used to have a sex addiction.
The 44-year-old actor - who has been married to Kristen Bell since 2013, with whom he has daughters Lincoln, five, and Delta, four - believes that he once battled an addiction to sex, because he says that following an argument with a former girlfriend, he found himself struck by “horniness”.
Speaking to Dr. Phil McGraw on the Phil in the Blanks podcast, the Parenthood star said: "I'd say I've had what could maybe be called a sex addiction at some point in my life. Not one that I had to seek treatment for, but … Up until then I would just say, 'I've had sex with a lot of people. I like to do it. It's healthy. Who cares? I'm not getting diseases. I'm single. Whatever.’
“The moment that I thought ‘Oh this deserves exploration’ is when I had a girlfriend, she was away, we got in a fight over the phone, I hung up the phone, I was driving in the car and I immediately got horny.”
