Understanding sexual compulsion is necessary if you are to deal with this addiction.
Compulsive sexual behavior, also known as hypersexual disorder, nymphomania or hypersexuality, is a state where you are completely obsessed with sexual behaviors, thoughts or even feelings to the extent that the behavior interferes with work, health, relationships and other normal activities.
In some cases, the obsession involves a sexual activity or behavior that is normally healthy and enjoyable.
In a few cases, the obsession involves fantasies about abnormal sexual behaviors that are generally considered immoral or illegal.
