On a break at my work, I check my phone and I see a WhatsApp text from my girlfriend. I open WhatsApp and I see this. 👇👇

Nymphomania and Satyriasis 2

Initially, I found it romantic and felt really blessed to have such a person in my life who loved me so much. However, all that happiness came crashing on my face when I later found out the whole story behind the WhatsApp text.

“You went crazy over WhatsApp today!” I said when I met her in the evening.

“Yeah! It was all because of my ex-boyfriend. He’s about to get married and have been uploading pictures of his fiancée. I got extremely mad at him when I saw the pictures and then starting texting that to you.” she explained.

Not only that, there were situations wherein she was extremely angry, upset, sad or stressed out and suddenly she wanted to have sex.

“Why do you always like to have sex when we’re going through a tough situation?” I once asked her.
“I don’t know I just feel like doing it… It relaxes me and calms me down for a while.” She said. I found that behaviour extremely weird but didn’t give much importance to it.

We broke up after dating for a while due to some reason, but I was in touch with her roomie who used to stay with her. I received a call from her roomie one day and she said, “Just wanted to let you know that she has started taking sessions for her illness.” She said.

“What illness?” I asked.

“For nymphomania. I thought she told you?” her roomie said. I was in a shock for a while but that explained the whole thing about her behaviour.

I started reading and searching things about nymphomania and nymphomaniacs to find out what exactly it is apart from the regular definition which says, “A woman with uncontrollable or excessive sexual desire.” because after my experience I knew it was different than what most of us think it is.

It’s a psychological condition that Women and Men suffer (known as Satyriasis when it comes to Men).

In today’s time, it’s called Hypersexual Disorder or Sexual Addiction (in some cases) which is seen in both Men and Women. It’s usually caused because of Chemical Imbalance in the Brain, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. Men and Women suffering from this aspire to constant sexual contacts (up to 10-15 times a day), indiscriminate in sexual partners and cannot be easily satisfied by anyone. This is because of certain neurological disorders wherein they’re left unsatisfied even after multiple orgasms and hence start building further connections to get themselves satisfied. Symptoms also include excessive masturbation, watching pornography and cybersex.

According to Kelly McDaniel, a professional counsellor in San Antonio, Texas, and author of Ready to Heal: Women Facing Love, Sex and Relationship Addiction. She states, “For many addicts, [it] becomes a way to numb out painful feelings & anxiety, kill time or stop feeling lonely.”

The above mentioned are the symptoms you might have read about previously. There are some more symptoms which might or might not be observed in everyone suffering from Hypersexual Disorder. Some of them are incapability of giving positive emotions or vibes, incapability of self-healing, lying all the time, getting bored or fed up too soon and they show a higher tendency of being manipulative in every situation.

However, I don’t want to create confusion here. There’s a difference between being a Sex Loving Person and a Sex Addict. In the first case, a person can control his/her sexual desire; it is not difficult for them to abstain for several weeks or months or even years. Whereas for a person who is suffering from Hypersexual Disorder, it’s like an obsession and he/she needs it every time.

Nymphomania and Satyriasis is something that exists since Victorian times but very less has been spoken about it because of the Taboo surrounding it. Moreover, there was a myth that it cannot be cured but it is curable and the first and foremost thing to do is not to deal with them when they’re angry. The rest… There are doctors to guide you for that.

People, who know the essence of the matter superficially or don’t know the exact definition of Hypersexual Disorder, perceive it (especially nymphomania) negatively, exposing (girls) to criticism. No doubt about the fact that, there are negative aspects of this disease, but no one can blame women for this. You, as a loving partner, must help your lover if he or she is a victim.

Sharing the little you have with those in need can turn around a life without you realizing it..
