Oh man. That is an absolutely classic episode. I love that one.
I think from a biological perspective, men become "addicted" to sex because there is a relatively small chance of a woman becoming pregnant in just one time (isn't it like 1 in 10 or something?). That's why it's easier to be on either a frequent schedule or completely celibate. In "nature," a man would have spells where he did not have sex at all, then form a relationship, have a bunch of sex (in this period he would become addicted, so that nature makes sure the woman becomes pregnant) and then have another long dry spell.
This makes sense based on my personal experience, because I've done 30 day trials and such. It is hard at first, then it's really easy, but once I start again I immediately get "addicted" again. This emulates the natural relationships that I described above.
