Nonparaphilic Hypersexual Behavior and Depressive Symptoms: A Meta-Analytic Review of the Literature

Nonparaphilic Hypersexual Behavior and Depressive Symptoms: A Meta-Analytic Review of the Literature | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"(T)he authors review the literature on the relation between nonparaphilic hypersexual behavior and depressive symptoms. There was a moderate, positive relation between nonparaphilic hypersexual behavior and depressive symptoms (r = .34). This relation was similar across gender, sexual orientation, and age. The authors discuss the implications for researchers and clinicians working with hypersexual individuals. Future research should work to elucidate the causal direction of the relation between nonparaphilic hypersexual behavior and depressive symptoms. The authors encourage clinicians who work with hypersexual patients to assess them for depressive symptoms and consider treatment options that address concurrent depressive symptoms."

Curator comment: This study supports the common-sense notion that for some people  depression contributes to hypersexually disordered behavior as a coping mechanism, and the negative consequences of this behavior can intensity depressive symptoms, resulting in a never-ending cycle.

Two Cases of Hypersexuality Probably Associated With Aripiprazole

Two Cases of Hypersexuality Probably Associated With Aripiprazole | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"We report hypersexuality symptoms in two female patients with schizophrenia who were receiving treatment with aripiprazole. The patients experienced more frequent sexual desire and greater sexual preoccupation after taking aripiprazole. We discuss the potential neuro-chemical mechanisms for this and argue that aripiprazole's unique pharmacological profile, partial agonism with high affinity at dopamine D2-receptor, may have contributed to the development of these symptoms."

Personal Perspectives on Hypersexual Disorder

Personal Perspectives on Hypersexual Disorder | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"Understanding the etiology, prevalence, treatment, and associated characteristics of HD is in its infancy. Important questions about the neurobiological mechanisms underlying HD remain unanswered at the present time. Debates continue as to which theoretical conceptualizations of HD might offer the best explanation (e.g., addiction, compulsivity, impulse-control models, etc.). Little is known about the onset, clinical course, and trajectories of HD symptoms as they manifest in various populations and across genders. Public health issues beyond the risks for sexually transmitted infections need to be considered including the impact of hypersexuality on the family, monogamous partnered relationships, child development, and potential risks for suicidal ideation. As advances continue to be made, investigators might benefit from assessing the body of literature about other non-substance related dysfunctional behaviors such as eating disorders or pathological gambling in order to generate hypotheses to guide future research endeavors. Indeed, it is both an exciting and challenging time for researchers and clinicians to be involve."

Hypersexuality following septal injury

Hypersexuality following septal injury | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"Hypersexuality is an uncommon consequence of brain injury. We report two cases of markedly increased sexual activity following septal damage sustained in the course of placement of ventriculoperitoneal shunts. These two cases, observations in animal experiments, and descriptions of altered behavior in humans with localized brain dysfunction indicate that a circuit involving the septal nuclei has an important role in the mediation of sexual behavior."

Are nonparaphilic sexual addictions a variant of obsessive-compulsive disorder? A pilot study

Are nonparaphilic sexual addictions a variant of obsessive-compulsive disorder? A pilot study | Women: Relationships, alcohol, porn, lesbians, masturbation, swinging, fantasy, female sex predators and orgasm | Scoop.it

"Nonparaphilic sexual addictions (NPSAs)........have been proposed as an obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder. In the present study we examined the functional differences in repetitive sexual thoughts and compulsive behaviors between patients with OCD (n = 6) and with NPSAs (n = 6). Compared to patients with NPSAs, those with OCD reported significantly more fear and avoidance related to their sexual thoughts. Individuals with NPSAs reported higher levels of sexual arousal associated with their thoughts and a greater degree of sexual pleasure from performing compulsive behaviors. These preliminary findings challenge the notion that NPSAs are related to OCD......."

Curator comment: Some people are keen to recast descriptions of sex addiction as a variant of obsessive-compulsive disorder.  This study disputes that assumption, although the relevance of its findings may be diminished by its small sample size.
