The distributors of "Choke," a forthcoming film about a sex addict's struggle to overcome his demons, have been handing out a strange promotional gift at preview screenings. Attached to a bookmark, the gift is a set of beads typically used as a sexual toy. In "Blades of Glory," last year's ice-skating comedy, Will Ferrell 's character attends a sex addicts meeting where the step serenity prayer has been rewritten: "God, grant me the serenity to not have sex with my friend's girlfriend, the courage to go home tonight without having sex with my friend's girlfriend, and the wisdom to walk away from my friend's smokin' hot girlfriend. Move over, tubby; take a break, old maid, there's a new straw man available for theatrical ridicule: the sex addict. Even as Hollywood has learned, slowly, not to mock the handicapped or brand all Middle Easterners as terrorists, and has turned a more sensitive eye toward alcoholics and drug addicts, it has shown little tact in portraying people diagnosed with sex addiction.
