Hi. I am a 23yr old female and I think I'm hypersexual, you know, like a nymphomaniac. Sounds kinda exciting but times like now, when it's quiet and I'm all alone, I feel so empty and lonely. When I'm having sex or masturbating the world could end and I wouldn't even care to notice. I've engaged in very risky sexual behaviour and I'm fearing for my health as a result. I don't wanna have kids either so that too is a huge risk that I take every time I have sex. What's a young lady to do when the only thing in this world that makes me feel alive, loved, wanted is sex?
Thank you for sharing. Now that you've admitted it's a problem, I think you should put some effort in working yourself out of it. While your case is different, there's euphoria that comes with every addiction, and so may be you can look at it like any other addiction. It will be a good start to identify the triggers and try to avoid them. I think it's also important to find other things that interests you, and deliberately direct your focus to them. It's not gonna be easy but you can do it. Good luck.
How do I identify the triggers?
Anything that leads you to sexual arousal. It could be something that you do or feelings you are having that makes you respond in a sexual way. It could be porn or social media posts. Take time to reflect on them, writing them down.
Then determine how you can avoid each. If you cannot avoid them, may be you can respond differently. If you have a close friend, sharing with them the problem can be helpful in the recovery process.
You ain't alone.. sounds like a female version of me. I jerk off daily and just seems to never have enough. Just feels pretty messed up.
