Hypersexuality

PsychCentral has an article of the signs and symptoms of hypersexuality.

Sexual addiction or hypersexuality 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.

By definition, this adult obsessive pattern of thoughts and behaviors will continue despite:

  • Attempts made to self-correct problematic sexual behavior
  • Promises made to self and others toward sexual behavior change
  • Significant, directly related negative life consequences in life and relationship stability, emotional and physical health concerns, or career and legal problems.
