- 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 "satiriasis" or "Don Juanism", in women - "nymphomania." Manifests hypersexuality in an insatiable sexual need, which often interferes with life. At the same time, there is often no attraction to a particular person, only a physiological need is satisfied without the involvement of emotions and psychological moments. The need may not be satisfied even with frequent orgasms. Hypersexuality is a constitutional property of the individual, or arises from a disease, for example, in the manic state of patients with manic-depressive psychosis or schizophrenia.
