ALMOST 50 per cent of Americans think President Bill Clinton needs psychological therapy over his admitted affair with a former White House trainee, according to an opinion poll published yesterday.

The survey of 1,013 adults by the national polling firm Leflein Associates, found nearly nine out of 10 Americans believe Hillary Clinton should not leave her husband.

Asked about the debate over the definition of sex, 84 per cent of those polled said they believe oral sex is sex, with men and women holding that opinion equally. The survey revealed that 44 per cent agreed that Mr Clinton needed therapy because of his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Psychotherapists familiar with sexual disorders have described Mr Clinton as a powerful, charismatic, isolated and bored character who fits the profile of a man ripe for sexual compulsion.

They have said he could benefit from therapy.
