I just turned 39 last month and am only now starting to understand what is wrong with me. I have OCD and a part of it has always been sexual obsession/hypersexuality with intrusive thoughts that I end up turning into fetishes or fantasies in order to cope with or combat the initial anxiety and depression caused by any new "taboo" or wildly dangerous sexual thoughts I have. I've been a sufferer of anxiety and depression most of my adult life. I have been diagnosed with ADHD as well and just recently learned I might be bipolar. I've also abused drugs for nearly my whole adult life. So idk which is the chicken vs the egg, what came first or caused what, and I don't know how to handle any of it. I'm in a straight long-term relationship with children but have cheated numerous times with women, men and even trans women who are usually the focal point of my more wild fantasies that I seek to fulfill now and then. *mod edit* Biggest problem though is that I absolutely love every minute of my escapades. The more risky, dangerous or taboo, the better. But by day I'm a normal 9-5 guy with a home and a family. You'd never know if you met me. And I get a kick out of that too.

This is a topic I would like to bring up again. Feel free to share, or not to share. Feel free to read, or not to read. :wink:

I experience hypersexuality but not often. I feel a need for sex for many days in a row. I will have sex and it's never enough to satisfy me. I have even sought out sex just for sex alone. Nevermind the closeness we crave or desire as a woman, as a person, sex is sex, is sex... :mrgreen:

In not so many details, my orgasms don't end. It's like this huge orgasm that won't end. I have ADD. I've read that some people with ADD or ADHD can be hypersexual like on a regular basis. I've read that those with bipolar can be hypersexual when manic. I experience both. On a more regular basis and especially when majorly manic! Best of both worlds...sometimes it's a good thing, sometimes it's a curse...

And other things that are more explicit in detail. Not that it really matters here. Feel free to share.
No judgment passed on here. We are all grown adults and we experience similar things...

How about you?

I think I chimed in on this once before but I'll participate again, as it's a problem at the moment.

My hypersexuality occurs in times of hypomania. Unfortunately, my hypo strikes once or twice every month and it can last for days, meaning half the month I can be hypo.

I have lived with this for so long that I have learned to control my impulses regarding looking for casual sex. I stay away from porn (which hasn't been the case in the past). I also have to stymie any normal talk about sex with my female friends for fear of saying something inappropriate.

None of this changes the fact my hypersexuality is a torrent of energy that flows through my brain and body so much that I want to ram my head through a concrete wall.

Changes in medication made me a slug. Masturbation is a temporary fix, as in 10 minutes of relief after an orgasm. So essentially it's useless. Better diet and exercise has helped but I am still looking for something that will reduce it to a few days a month.

If anyone has any tips...

I usually end up with the same problem and my only solution have been to take my mind of the sexual urge. If you've got any kind of hobby, except maturation :roll: you could try that. I Wright songs and play guitar and it usaully help.if you've haven't got a hobby i strongly suggest that you try to find something to your liking.
What is the meaning of life you ask? The best answer I got for that is my own meaning. Instead of asking you should be searching for yours.

I've been really struggling with this symptom lately, although it's not coming out as destructive as it used to and I've been "busy" masturbating instead of screwing people in the police parking lot (can't believe I did that, can't believe I wrote about it online). That's good in this day and age with quarantine and such, but those it's keeping me awake at night because I can't get my focus off of those urges, and I know not sleeping is just going to make the mania worse.
All I saw was the Devil's soul
And it looked a helluva lot like my own
