Transcript of Nymphomania/Sex Addiction
What is it?
Also known as hyper-sexuality.
Dysfunctional preoccupation with sexual fantasy; the inability to manage one's sexual behaviour.
Based on behaviours that are destructive; distress and disturbances in normal social functioning, much like other addictions.

Reduction theory (like homeostasis).
Sexual drive based on our need to reproduce.
Neural pathways involved in drug/alcohol addictions are the same as those involved in sex addiction.
Role of neurotransmitters, neurochemicals, neural pathways & certain parts of the brain.
Dopamine, reward centres, endorphins, etc.

Secure vs. insecure attachment
3 types of insecure adult romantic attachment styles:
On less securely attached people:
Believe they’re less attractive, less likely to be in steady relationship.
Higher chance of infidelity, have more sexual partners.
Actual disorder or a social construct?
Women seen as pure, modest, and passionless with regards to sex.
Satyriasis: rare and mild, nymphomania: more common and severe.
Behavioural double standard.
Males having sex = good, "stud", "the man", etc...
Females having sex = "whore"/"ho"/"slut"/I don’t know what other terms exist…
