Understanding and Managing Compulsive Sexual Behaviors
Hypersexuality is extremely frequent or suddenly increased libido. It is currently controversial whether it should be included as a clinical diagnosis  used by mental healthcare professionals. Nymphomania and Satyriasis were terms previously used for the condition in women and men, respectively. Hypersexuality may also present as a side effect of medication such as drugs used to treat Parkinson's disease. Clinicians have yet to reach a consensus over how best to describe hypersexuality as a primary condition,    or to determine the appropriateness of describing such behaviors and impulses as a separate pathology. Hypersexual behaviours are viewed variously by clinicians and therapists as a type of obsessive-compulsive disorder OCD or "OCD-spectrum disorder", an addiction,    or a disorder of impulsivity. A number of authors do not acknowledge such a pathology  and instead assert that the condition merely reflects a cultural dislike of exceptional sexual behavior.
