Will Young confesses to porn addiction

London, Feb 9 (IANS) Singer-actor Will Young has confessed that the “shame” of being gay pushed him into a porn addiction.

The singer admitted that he is still addicted to porn as well as alcohol, and is unable to go on dates without having a drink first, reports dailystar.co.uk.

The 37-year-old spoke about his sexuality at National Student Pride 2016 at University of Westminster, where he made the confession.

He said: “I was a love addict, I still am an addict, addicted to porn, certainly addicted to alcohol.

“I’d never been on a date without having at least two drinks before I’d left the house and I didn’t even notice that was a problem.”

He claimed that his addictions were a result of the shame he felt at recognising his sexuality as a teenager.

He said: “I will keep coming back to shame because it’s such a fundamental thing.

“Until I conquered it I just kept having sex to fill the void, watching porn, shopping, anything, and I think we are told that as soon as we come out everything will be okay, but it’s just not the case.”

He came out at the age of 21 to his friends and family, but was forced to come out again to the public when he won television music competition show “Pop Idol” in 2002.
