Unless the person is acting like a derranged rabbit and producing constantly, then it's all about hormones. Some people have more hormones than others. As I said, if it doesn't affect your life and you do other enjoyable things then there is nothing wrong with a person that is more highly sex than another. There is no evidence that highly sexed people have emotional problems. The only trick is to find a partner with the same hunger for your urges for sex. Marcy Well, since I'm not one this isn't exactly from the horse's mouth. Nymphomania is a condition where the person is highly sexual and this occurs when the hormones are imbalanced in the body. Some people love it and can live with it and men certainly never complain about it. Nymphomaniacs are no different than you or me, but have a much higher hunger for sex. They work, can be highly intelligent individuals, be in different areas of the working world, or even be one of your own family members. As long as their sexual urges don't interfere with their daily lives and routines, then there is no real problem unless their sexual partner just can't keep up. Marcy It is a common misconception embraced by men and perhaps loathed by women that this is just a woman with a high sex drive (bring it on :) ) Actually it is abnormal,excessive and insatiable desire in women for sexual intercourse. It is a form of sexual addiction. Although not well studied it is considered more to do with an attempt to satisfy dependency needs rather than gratifying sexual impulses. Like other addictive or impulse control disorders there is a driven quality that takes on a life of it's own and creates various secondary problems. It can occur in cycles secondary to Bipolar disorder, brain damage, or drug use as well.

What is a nymphomaniac?

A nymphomaniac is woman with excessive sexual desires. Nymphomania is an uncontrolled desire for sex. It is usually not a physical condition. Instead, it is mainly a psychological condition where the victim seeks multiple sexual encounters as a way of self affirmation rather than satisfaction of sexual desire. If you believe you are a nymphomaniac consult a therapist. Do not pursue random, unfulfilling sexual encounters with strangers who may not have YOUR best interests at heart.The concept of hypersexuality replaces the older concepts of nymphomania. Nymphomania was believed to be a female psychological disorder characterized by an overactive libido and an obsession with sex. In males the disorder was called satyriasis (for etymology of the words, see nymph and satyr).

Yes. Nymphomaniacs usually have an uncontrollable urge to engage in sexual acts of some sort. The fact that the urge is uncontrollable, the person in question may feel that their life in general something they cannot control. Though it is possible for them to control their life over a period of time, they would just need to be willing to take that jump from nymphomania to a less sexual train of thought in general. If the person is unable to do that on their own, then seeking help from a trained professional in the treating of nymphomania is always another choice.
