Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Diary of a Sex Addict

A middle-aged restaurant owner and chef named Sammy Horn (Des Barres) is living a double life. He is a devoted family man who loves his wife Grace (Arquette) and his son very much but he's also a self-confessed sex addict who seeks pleasure with any woman, any time. In his free moments he goes in search of his necessary sexual fix. He reveals his secret to his therapist (Kinski) when feelings of guilt and self loathing begin tearing him apart inside and interfering with his day to day life.
