- a constant, extremely high sexual desire, which is rarely satisfied, despite numerous sexual acts and a large number of partners. In men, this phenomenon is called "satyriasis" or "don Juanism," in women - "nymphomania." Hypersexuality manifests itself in an insatiable sexual need, often interfering in life. Moreover, often there is no attraction to a particular person, only a physiological need is satisfied without the participation of emotions and psychological moments. The need may not be satisfied even with frequent orgasms. Hypersexuality is a constitutional personality trait, or it results from an illness, for example, in a manic state in patients with manic-depressive psychosis or schizophrenia.
