"I like my sex 'semiotically charged'."

"I've deleted Grindr so many times I've lost count."

"My biggest sex organ is my brain."

"I don't understand the world, I live in the internet."

"I'm not entertaining enough for a therapist"

"Grindr, by the way, for a sex addict is really like giving a heroin addict a locked room, and an unlimited supply of needles and smack. "

"I'm chasing something entirely different and certainly much more destructive when I open Grindr."

"Without a strong support system or a dominance over the more addictive parts of my personality, I don't think I could do this for much longer without being hollowed out in some irreversible way."

"But I think these outlier experiences--the really amazing jackpots--are one of the reasons it's been so hard to quit."

"In retrospect, one of the biggest problems with hooking up online is just that you don't have to work for it. There's no elaborate story about how charming you were at the gallery opening, or how your irresistible your dancing was across the room, or even how you just locked eyes across a party with someone and then had one of those instant-on conversations in that way that is so romantic. Instead, you get a walk through the dark up to someone's porch, and the suspense of waiting for them to answer the doorbell. Everything else is (almost) a foregone conclusion, and therefore kind of essentially unexciting."

"One of the most heartbreaking things: seeing someone frustrated by their limitations and not understand they are self-imposed, arbitrary."
