Serial “cheater» asked Reddit users if he should become a “Neuralink hamster” to get rid of the constant need to cheat on his wife, writes the Daily Mail.

A user who signs up as Electronic-Camera277 wrote in a post on Reddit that he hopes Elon Musk's company's Neuralink brain chip can cure him of his endless bouts of infidelity and save his marriage.

Although serial cheating, otherwise. known as sex addiction, is considered a disease that psychologists say can be dealt with through therapy – this means that implanting a brain chip may not be the most effective way to remain faithful to your partner.

"Reddit – It's a hotbed of conversation and opinion about adultery – it's one of the first platforms scammers turn to for advice, but response and support have been mixed, Jessica Leoni, an infidelity expert at Illicitencounters.com, told the Daily Star. – There is no doubt that Neuralink is to some extent not a solution to the problem of serial adultery and addiction treatment in general – no matter how great Elon Musk's claims are.

As the Daily Mail recalls, Neuralink successfully implanted its first chip last month as part of the PRIME study, which aims to allow people with quadriplegia to control devices with their thoughts, such as opening an app, pressing or moving a cursor up and down.

“The device is designed to interpret a person's neural activity so they can control a computer or smartphone simply by thinking about movement— no wires or physical movement required,” the company says.

However, Despite all the potential capabilities that the Neuralink brain chip has, treating someone's mental health, and especially their needs for adultery, is not one of them.

Reddit user said he cheated on his wife &quot ;more times than I can count,” and claimed that he had been in therapy to treat his sex addiction but was still having trouble stopping.

This thought process led him to research and consider alternative treatments, he said, adding: “I'm so desperate that I'm even considering Elon Musk's Neuralink implant to treat addiction.”

He then asked the Reddit community: "Will my wife ever forgive me? Should I tell her? Should I be a Neuralink hamster/is it worth a try?'

Elon Musk has boasted for years that his Neuralink brain chip could be used to regulate people's hormones and emotional well-being, and could ultimately be a breakthrough for people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or treatment-resistant depression.

In 2020, the tech giant said that the Neuralink chip actually has the ability to control emotions and mood and could even be used to treat addiction.

A Twitter user then asked Musk: “Can Neuralink be used to retrain the part of the brain that is responsible for addiction or depression?”, reports The Independent.

Musk replied: “Of course.” It's both great and scary. Everything we ever sensed or thought about were electrical signals. The early Universe was just a soup of quarks and leptons. How did a very small part of the Universe begin to consider itself intelligent?

The reality is that the technology is not there yet, and those seeking treatment for sex addiction, such as Electronic-Camera277, should explore more effective and well-established methods such as counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy, notes.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is the most common form of therapy for sex addiction because it helps the patient identify and process the thought patterns and beliefs that have led them to this point.

But many Reddit users reached out to Electronic-Camera277, advising him not to blame his infidelity on “sex addiction,” a sentiment shared by the Center for Positive Sexuality (CPS), the Alternative Sexuality Health Research Alliance (TASHRA), and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF).

These groups wrote in a 2017 statement that so-called sex "addictions" may be a result of a person's cultural or religious beliefs rather than based on actual scientific evidence.

The concept of sex addiction “emerged in the 1980s as a socially conservative response to cultural anxieties,” the authors wrote, “and gained recognition through its reliance on medicalization and visibility in popular culture.”

Compulsive sexual behavior is not listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) – reference manual of mental illness published by the American Psychiatric Association. She rejected a proposal to include sexual addiction (hypersexual disorder) in the DSM-5 manual, citing “a lack of evidence and potential consequences for labeling excessive sexual activity as a 'pathology.'” (calling it a disease or disorder),” according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Reddit users seemed to echo this sentiment, with one writing: “Every time you cheat on her, you're making a conscious decision do it. You meet people, save their phone numbers, go on dates, arrange places, make up lies for both your wife and the people you meet. It rarely just arises or “happens”.

While Electronic-Camera277 shares the problems faced by many others and seeks help from Neuralink, the reality is that implanting brain chips is not and reportedly won't be a solution for some time, the Daily Mail concludes.
