A woman who reckons she rooted more than 370 men now claims she has been celibate for 4 years.
Probably because her box is well wrecked and still in recovery.
APPROACHING a man at a bar, Seyi Kolade had only one thing on her mind as she chatted with the stranger â€“ SEX.
Within hours the pair were in bed together and she was delighted at how her evening had panned out.
And this was not a chance encounter, for Seyi was a sex addict and it was what she did almost every day forÂ 13 YEARS.
Last night she said: â€śSex addiction took hold of my life.â€ť
Seyi, 35, was just 17 when she became dependent on sleeping with men. By 19 she had had 40 partners and she says she has bedded a shocking total of 370 men.
Her dangerous addiction led her to a life of destruction â€” catching sexually transmitted infections, being evicted from her home and having two terminations. Â
By the age of 30, Seyi had hit rock bottom and needed help. Today, after attending numerous sex addiction meetings and 12-step programmes, Seyi has been celibate for four years and is helping others like her.
She explains says: â€śSex addiction is something people associate with men, but it took hold of my life for more than 13 years.
â€śIt was a craving and a fear of how Iâ€™d feel if I couldnâ€™t get it.
â€śOnce I did, it was a huge relief, like a weight was lifted.
â€śItâ€™s like any addiction. It made me selfish, self-destructive and depressed but it was a cycle I couldnâ€™t escape.â€ť
She adds: â€śI lost my virginity when I was 13 with my first boyfriend.
â€śI was shocked when I fell pregnant. I gave birth when I was 14. It was a very difficult time.â€ť
Social services arranged a nanny to look after her daughter, Sarah, from six weeks old.
Being a young mum scarred Seyiâ€™s childhood. She says: â€śI moved out of home when I was 16 with Sarah and lived in a mother and baby unit. I felt terribly lonely. I craved affection, I was miserable.â€ť
