Hypersexuality?


Recommended Posts

How on earth do you deal with it?

 

Taken me a bit by suprise this one, but it's rapidly becoming a massive problem. I just can't think about anything else. I mean - it really is pretty much all the time. Venturing into things that probably aren't entirely sensible. Spoke to a psych nurse on a helpline about it last night and she said that however much I thought I could look after myself if I was feeling unusually disinhibited and my judgment was impaired I was making myself vulnerable. Not sure I'm going to be comfortable speaking to my community psych nurse about it because it's rather embarassing. In fact I've been having lots of thoughts about trying to seduce my psych nurse, which is even more embarassing!

 

What do you do when you feel like this?

Masterbation, it's not a complete solution, but it does help, however slightly. Just lots and lots of that I guess, there's not much else you CAN do, obviously without going round and sleeping with everyone, which is a bad idea. 

Also have something really sour with me, like EXTREMELY sour, like, eating a raw lemon sour (actually found something worse than that that's AMAZING when it's super bad but don't know what it's called) and whenever my brain starts to go off on a tangent and start undressing someone and wanting to do stuff with them you eat another one/take a bite of your lemon. I don't know, I guess the shock and unexpectedness of it makes your brain go "HOLY SHIT WHAT DID I JUST EAT?" as well as it being the opposite of sexual so you have semi-proper judgement back for a bit.

I find that helps, still horribly frustrating, but it at the very least stops me leaping onto every guy I see.

Yeah, I'm trying to satisfy myself, but we're talking every half an hour or so, and it isn't enough. Have ordered some sex toys to see if that will help but feel pretty compelled to start hooking up with strangers. Will have to try the lemon - thanks!

What is it you want?  Is it the sex?  Is it the emotional?  First figure out what it is you want and then think about how to get it in more healthy ways than hooking up.  If you want the sex then buy and use condoms and play it safe in all areas.  If you want the emotion realize you don't have to go through sex to get it and find someone wanting the same.  Also this can be from mania so be sure to ask this of your pdoc.

Masturbation, porn, fantasizing, dancing. That all helps, but in the end, it doesn't shut down the urges. For me, it is often not about the actual sex, but the flirting and the 'trying to make someone want you' part (which at certain levels of mania is a scaringly easy task). This is much harder to deal with, actually, I have found no good way to deal with that part but benzos, and I hate those.

 

 Are you alright? You seem to have been going through this for some time now. Are the meds kicking in yet?

I don't want anything emotional, just no-strings sex and lots of it. I've actually met someone recently through an online site who I really like and am having some excellent conversations with, that might turn into something more emotional and long-lasting, and I probably shouldn't screw that up, but the urges are very strong.

 

Just trying to think about ways I can deal with all this without actually putting into vulnerable situations. I'm excited about the new sex-toys and thinking about getting a webcam, at least then I wouldn't be risking physical danger by meeting up with strangers.

 

I think I may need a meds increase!!

Hmm, well I'm very torn right now. I have this potentially more serious relationship developing that I don't want to screw up, yet I've also started talking online to a couple who want to meet up with me, and I don't know whether I'm going to be able to stop myself doing it. 

 

And I could really do without the sexual thoughts about my treatment providers!!!

Please don't meet up with that couple if you have something potentially more serious in the works. I know it's really hard not to do something like that because it feels so adventurous and freeing and like confirmation of how sexy, sexy, sexy you feel when manic, but if you might lose out on something more meaningful, it's not worth it. Play with your new sex toys while fantasizing about it, multiple times a day if you need to.
