Your experience with hypersexuality.

Postby helloagain » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:35 pm

Hypersexuaity is a common feature of a hypomanic/manic episode, but is also the least discussed,
since one is embarrassed to talk about it, particularly since it happens unintentionally and one feels intense guilt over it after one returns to the normal phase. Nevertheless one should recognise it and learn to control it. Would you like to share your experience with it?

The only thing I really have to say is I am asexual, and have no libido. When hypo-manic/manic I get very sexual and make.. questionable choices. I always regret what I did, and with who after the fact. I look back on and think, "that is not me" and I'm very upset with myself over most of the people I have been with. I don't just sleep with them, though. I become infatuated. It disgusts me, tbh.

I have been lucky in-so-far as it doesn't cause me to make bad choices. But it gets very tiring when all you think about is sex, and all your body can feel is a pulsating electricity that you want to satisfy. And even if you do (in some way) it isn't enough.

Nons, for a lack of a better word, think this is a good thing. And yes, at times, it does feel good - but once it ramps up - it is too intense, too long.

One of the perks of a mania I guess. Especially considering the libido sapping depression. Not done anything wild or reckless during a mania sex wise but if I was more socially outgoing I can imagine plenty of bad scenarios I might have been involved in. It\'s never converted to promiscuity as I have only been with a gf once while manic and the sex was great but as a singleton I\'ve never even got with anyone while manic.\nHyper sexuality is one of the few perks I\'d say but I hear a lot of stories of people cheating etc but for me it\'s been a positive thing - too bad about all the other things!Lol.

I was sitting alone in my friend's visitor's room waiting for his return from office when his wife, aged around fifty, approached me and announced that she badly needed a second child and made as if to climb onto my lap, and when I refused on the grounds that I would be in trouble, chided me for being a coward, even when she was prepared to take full responsibility!

This is really bad for me. I develop a ridiculous facination with porn, prostitution, and other women besides my wife. This has nearly destroyed my marriage. I always feel bad later, but at the time the desire is absolutely consuming. Nothing appeases it. Like being parched and you only have salt water. You take a sip and immediately regret it.

Mine goes into over drive and drives my wife nuts. It doesn't help that she has no desire to have sex either and has told me the only reason we had sex was for her to get pregnant. I could probably masturbate at least once a day and feel OK. I want her to dress in sexy clothes and all those kinds of things but it just puts a damper on things when she doesn't want to partake.
