Exhibiting unusual or excessive concern with or indulgence in sexual activity is called hypersexuality (Psora). It is defined as a dysfunctional preoccupation with sexual fantasy, often in combination with the obsessive pursuit of casual or non-intimate sex, pornography, compulsive masturbation, romantic intensity and objectified partner sex for a period of at least six months (Psora). Hypersexuality includes excess of sexual activities, the obsession toward sex and its consequences.
Hypersexuality in males is called satyriasis and nymphomania in females.
Sexuality is reliant on many factors, including individual and bond variables, societal values, cultural values, and ethnic as well as religious principles (Causa occasionalis). Sex has been melodramatically controlled by these norms. The individuals engaged in frequent sexual behavior are often considered and pathologized because their behaviors do not follow the norms of their society (Psora/ Sycosis).
Hypersexual subjects try to antagonize their depressive states and death anxiety with the life instinct through sexual activities, although in a deregulated way (Psora). Hence, hypersexual behaviors can be considered to be a defensive behavior against death anxiety (Psora). Some theoretical models are developed based on different aspects leading to hypersexual disorder- the compulsive sexual behavior, the sexual impulsivity, and sexual addiction.
Medical conditions associated with hypersexuality include-
Here frontal or cortical damage is associated with disinhibition (Psora/ Syphilis).
Temporal lobe damage is associated with hypersexuality (Psora/ Syphilis).
It has been associated with hypersexuality, with the suggestion that this condition was due to is inhibition of the limbic system (Psora).
Stroke and frontal lobotomy have been associated with hypersexuality. Frontal lesions are associated with disinhibition (Psora/ Sycosis/ Syphilis/Causa occasionalis).
Methamphetamine, dopaminergic drugs and cocaine are main drugs to induce hypersexuality (Causa occasionalis).
Hypersexual behavior associated with bipolar disorder is also well-known. Mood disorders are often associated with dysregulation of biologically mediated drive states or appetitive behaviors (Psora).
It states that thoughts and images constitute the obsession, while the acting constitutes the compulsion (Psora/ Sycosis).
It states that the hypersexual behavior is due to the failure to resist to sexual drive, and to the inability to delay the sexual gratification (Psora).
This is simply due to an addiction, so called sexual addiction, as in alcoholism etc. (Psora/ Syphilis)
Hypersexuality may be a nonparaphilic hypersexual behavior or paraphilia-related disorder. When an atypical sexual interest causes distress or impairment to the individual or harm to others, it is called paraphilia (Psora/ Sycosis).
Hypersexual behaviors include excess of compulsive masturbation, pornography, sexual behavior with consenting adults, cybersex or telephone sex use and strip club’s attendance (Psora/ Sycosis).
The affected person may show at minimum 5 from below symptoms, continuing for at least for six months-
Other hallmarks of hypersexuality are-
Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one's own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm. The stimulation may involve hands, fingers, everyday objects, sex toys such as vibrators, or combinations of these. (Psora)
Pornography or pornography dependence is the representation of sexual behavior in books, pictures, statues, motion pictures, and other media that is intended to cause sexual arousal and pleasure. (Psora)
This is a protracted heterosexual or homosexual promiscuity. (Psora)
Cybersex has been defined as online sexual talk for purposes of sexual pleasure (Psora).
Telephone sex or telephone sex dependence or telephone scatologia is a paraphilia in which erotism depends on verbalizing sexually overt, usually uninvited, conversation with the listener (Psora).
The contact between dancers and patrons is called counterfeit intimacy. This may be the misimpression of sexual desire or attraction toward the customer given by the stripper in order to get him to spend money (Psora).
Model of Hypersexuality
The following criteria for hypersexual disorder was proposed as an addition to the DSM-5. For a period of at least six months-
Treatment for hypersexuality typically involves psychotherapy and medications. The primary goal of treatment is to manage impulses and reduce excessive sexual behaviors while continuing healthy sexual activities.
The Homoeopathic medicines work on the constitution and not on specific diseases, therefore Homoeopathic medicines cure these disorders more swiftly than any other system of treatment.
