3 Million Men Are Just Like Buzz Bissinger

Buzz Bissinger, besides his bipolarity, self-loathing, and mid-life crisisdom, seems also to have a bad case of Compulsive Buying Syndrome. It’s a real thing, says Dr. April Lane Benson, and what’s more, 3 million dudes have it too; of the 18 million or so Americans who suffer from the disorder 20% are men. It’s unclear if any of these shopaholics buy only one brand, however. Or how many of their addictions are linked inextricably to a leather/BDSM fetish. Or how many of them like to wear heels. Not to suggest Buzz’s issues are more serious, of course. [New York]
