Although there are some people that would require libido boosters just for them to get in the mood for sex, there are others that are actually quite sexually active. Hypersexuality is a condition where a person not only thinks about sex all of the time, but it’s as if it is their life’s mission to continually have sex with the same or so many different partners.
Now, you might think that this isn’t a problem, but it actually is. It can affect not only the person who is affected by it, but it can also (possibly) destroy interpersonal relationships, career, and even your psychological well-being, among other things.
It is best that if you have an insatiable appetite for sex that you consult a therapist immediately to ensure that you are not experiencing such a condition.
Hypersexuality is actually a condition that can be a result of other conditions. Here are just some of the things that might put your sex drive in overdrive:
Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder
This condition is more common in women than in men. Persistent genital arousal disorder is characterized by an insatiable feeling of arousal that not even orgasm can quell.
This intense sensation could last for days and even weeks, but despite the strong feelings of arousal, it is actually quite treatable.
Treatment options for this condition include the use of antidepressants, anaesthetizing gels, hormonal therapy, and behavioral therapy.
People who suffer from dementia may also lead to hypersexuality. According to a study that was published by the Journal Advances in Psychiatric Treatment, dementia may lead people to exhibit sexually inappropriate behaviors.
Dementia is common in older folks, but may also be experienced by young ones as well. Taking medications, in combination with therapy, may be required to treat people with such cases.
This condition is characterized by a sudden shift in mood. As the name implies, ‘bipolar’ in this sense refers to mania and depression. Hypersexuality is just a common symptom of the mania phase. It can be controlled using a combination of drugs and therapy.
This is a rare condition that is a result of brain damage. One of its potential symptoms is hypersexuality and although there are no medications that can directly fix the problem, some therapies may somehow fix it.
Sexual addiction, to the surprise of no one, can actually lead to obsessive thoughts about sex and may also lead to an overactive sex drive.
According to sex therapists, sex addicts constantly think about sex because the increased dopamine production as a result of coitus is the ‘high’ that they are constantly looking for.
There are also others that say that sex is a means for addicts to forget about the problems that may plague them in their lives.
The good thing is that hypersexuality is a treatable condition that mainly revolves around the use of certain medications, in combination with therapy.
So, if you happen to have an insatiable appetite for sex, you may want to get yourself treated, stat!
