Plot Synopsis

To deal their emotional demons, people often turn to a compulsion. Sometimes their habits are quite odd. Each half-hour episode of MY STRANGE ADDICTION features two individuals with unusual urges, including: Crystal, who is addicted to eating kitchen cleanser; Samantha, who is addicted to tanning; Lori, who is addicted to sleeping with her blow dryer; Kesha, who is addicted to eating toilet paper; Davecat, who is married to a doll; Lauren, who is addicted to bodybuilding; Rhonda, who is addicted to sucking her thumb; and many more strange addictions. This series returned for its fourth season on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 10pm ET on TLC, with back-to-back episodes featuring: Trina and her husband Mike, who have had nearly 7,000 coffee enemas over a 2.5-year period; Lisa, who for three years has been addicted to licking her cat; Mark, who eats with, sleeps with and bathes with inflatable pool toys; and Karmello, who has been getting butt injections on the black market for the last three years. MY STRANGE ADDICTION returned for its fifth season on Wednesday, January 1, 2014. At 9pm ET/PT, TLC debuted a one-hour special, I'm a Living Doll," which follows three individuals who undergo extreme physical and psychological measures to look and act as full time human dolls, doing whatever it takes to look doll-like, including obsessive diets, wearing tight corsets and eye-enlarging contact lens, and getting radical plastic surgery procedures. Immediately following the one-hour special, TLC aired back-to-back, new, half-hour episodes, each featuring two shocking cases.
TLC premiered the sixth season of MY STRANGE ADDICTION on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "Men in Doll Suits," men who get dolled up in secret are stepping out in public for the first time at rubber doll rendezvous. The season premiere is an insider's look into the world of female maskers: men who dress in rubber suits and masks to look like life-sized, shapely female dolls.
