Top 10 Facts About Nymphomaniacs 10. No Boys Allowed Did you know that the term nymphomania only
applies to females? The male counterpart is called satyriasis. Both words are inspired
by Greek mythology: nymphs are “minor deities represented as beautiful maidens” and satyrs
are “woodland creature[s] depicted as having the pointed ears, legs, and short horns of
a goat and a fondness for unrestrained revelry.” I guess that’s where the term “horny”
comes from? Why are we all familiar with the term “nympho”
and not “satyro”? Is it because a woman who is unable to control her sexual desires
is more exciting or more newsworthy than a man with the same problem? More likely, it’s
because a willingness to engage in constant sexual activity is considered normal when
it comes to men. In fact, historically, the female problem of nymphomania has been taken
much more seriously than the male counterpart. Treatments have included “cold baths, bromide
sedatives, cauterization and, yes, clitoridectomy” (Peter Green, “All Sexed Up”, Los Angeles
Times). (Painting: Nymphs and Satyr, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Wikipedia.) 9. Too Much Of A Good Thing? The book “Nymphomania, A History” describes
how Victorian doctors feared that “eating rich food, consuming too much chocolate, dwelling
on impure thoughts, reading novels, or performing “secret pollutions” (masturbating)…
overstimulated women’s delicate nerve fibers and led to nymphomania.” They were so worried
about these delicate nerve fibers that ““one critic even feared that the use of the speculum
itself might so excite a woman’s passions that it could cause nymphomania” (Carol
Groneman, Nymphomania A History). Obviously this critic was a man and had never had a
pap smear! 8. It’s All In Her Head The same book quoted above also states that
Phrenologists of the same time period thought “an enlarged cerebellum… indicated inordinate
sexual appetite.” A visit to phrenology.org confirms that there are still people who believe
in this study of head shapes. Phrenologists believe that “the faculty concerned with
physical love and sexual attraction [is] on the lower back of the head, behind the ears.”
The bigger your cerebellum, the bigger the back of your head- meaning you literally have
too much sex in the brain. In contrast, The Encyclopedia of Psychology states that “scientists
now recognize that the shape of the skull does not relate to the shape of the brain.” If you’re a nymphomaniac you can decide
for yourself: is that bump on the back of your head from your enlarged cerebellum or
from repeated knocks against headboards, car interiors, and airplane bathroom walls? 7. Yesterday’s Nymphomaniacs Are Today’s
Sex Addicts The term “nymphomaniac” or “nympho”
is no longer recognized in the medical world. According to health.discovery.com “the term…
is not scientifically meaningful simply because there are no specific criteria that would
define a nymphomaniac. In other words, there isn’t a way to determine how much sexual
desire or activity is too much.” Instead, a person whose sex drive is obsessively high
is called “hypersexual.” Other words used are “sexual addiction” and “compulsivity.” No longer used by medical professionals, the
term nymphomaniac is still in use in our vocabulary. Urbandictionary.com defines a nymphomaniac
as “a horny girl. Not to be confused with slut or skank where one’s sexual dignity
is pathetically low, nymphomania is simply related to an abnormally high sex drive.” Abnormal is the key word here. Research has
shown that only “about 8% of the total population of men and 3% of women are sexually addicted
[nymphomaniacs]” (allpscyh.com). 6. Nymphos Are Sick Back to Carol Groneman’s book Nymphomania,
A History: “In the Victorian period, both doctors and
the patients who sought medical help believed that strong sexual desire in a woman was a
symptom of disease. Self-control and moderation were central to the health of both men and
women, but women’s presumably milder sexual appetite meant that any signs of excess might
signal that she was dangerously close to the edge of sexual madness.” Headlines still support this belief that one
false step will send a “normal” woman spiraling into an over-sexed state. Last month
the Daily Star reported that a woman was claiming that a fall from her Wii Fit board turned
her into a nymphomaniac (Emma Wall, “Nintendo Wii Made Me a Nympho!”, Daily Star). Apparently
nymphomania can be a sports injury as well. In another recent case, a nymphomaniac became
the victim of her doctor’s inappropriate bedside manner; he lost his license when he
started paying house calls to his nymphomaniac patient. (“Indian-origin Oz doc gets deregistered
for having sex with ‘nymphomaniac’ patient”, Asian News International [ANI]). 5. Nymphomaniacs Are Not Great Girlfriends A nymphomaniac girlfriend might only be great
material for a movie, a letter to Playboy, or a fantasy. Real life isn’t as fantastic:
at worst they have a serious medical condition; at best they are exhausting… Here is some handy advice from a website called
midlifebachelor.com: “Get what you can out of your relationship
with a nymphomaniac woman – and be prepared to cut your losses in a hurry, and move on…
sleep with her quickly, and then vanish into thin air as if you were never there to begin
with.” What lovely advice! I’m sure all of you
single ladies out there want this gentleman’s phone number… (Image: By Its Cover Check
this site out if you love classic pulp fiction!) 4. Nymphomania Is A Sin Nymphomania is not condoned in the bible.
“Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished,
it bring forth death” (James 1: 14 – 15).Christiananswers.net provides straightforward (and nonjudgmental)
advice for “men and women of all walks of life who struggle with addictions to pornography,
masturbation, cybersex, and similar sexual practices.” There are also sites specifically
for women. Dirtygirlsministries.com “is a Christian anti-pornography ministry created
to help women struggling with pornography addiction.” According to filmmaker and sex addict (his
2006 film is called “I Am A Sex Addict”) Caveh Zahedi,“There’s the idea in Hinduism
of a negative path to God… Instead of doing good, you do really bad… And arguably sin
is a better path because you learn more deeply what it is you’re dealing with. They say
the worst sinners make the greatest saints.” (Kevin B. Lee, Caveh Zahedi: Interview With
A Sex Addict, Slant Magazine.) (Infographic: buzzfeed.com) 3. Nymphomania Is Not A Sin Alfred Kinsey said, “the only unnatural
sex act is that which you cannot perform” – and some religions see nymphomania as
a route to redemption or a celebration of marriage. Check out christiannymphos.org, whose mission
is “to teach married women to walk in sexual freedom with their husbands.” If, when you
think of toys and church ladies, you think of a nice elderly lady selling hand-knit doll
clothes at a church bazaar, the “toy reviews” at this site might knock your socks off. You
can also participate in weekly polls, such as “Where is the most interesting place
you would like to [make love] to your hubby?” Q: What’s the best cure for nymphomania?
A: M-A-R-R-I-A-G-E (experienceproject.com) “There is not really any ‘good’ and
‘bad’ in Buddhism; there are just actions that bring us greater happiness and those
that bring us greater pain,” explains Peter Morrell in his article ‘A Buddhist View
of Addiction” (homeoint.org). Addiction, including sexual addiction (for our purposes,
nymphomania) is “seen as an overactive desire sense, that has gone way beyond normal limits.”

attractions, it can actually be very dangerous (and expensive). Also, while celebrity sex
addicts make headlines and it all seems very exciting, I think it’s important to note
that “60% of sexual addicts were abused by someone in their childhood.” (Roschbeth
Ewald, “Sexual Addiction,” Allpscyh.com) (Image: By Its Cover) Here are some negative consequences of sexually
compulsive behavior: Exposure to sexually transmitted diseases
Debt Legal problems
Damaged relationships (marriage, friends, family)
Interference with your work and social life Loss of reputation
Vulnerability to anxiety and depression 1. Nymphomaniacs Don’t Even Enjoy Sex?! “I need sex for a clear complexion, but
I’d rather do it for love.” (Joan Crawford) Think about it, if you are compelled to do
something frequently, do you enjoy it? I mean, I love eating chocolate as a treat, but if
that’s all I did all day long I think I’d get bored of the flavor pretty fast! So what
if you can’t stop eating chocolate, even though you know you’re hurting loved ones,
your career, spending all your money, and possibly even sending yourself straight to
hell? (Image: movie poster for sale at moviegoods.com) “For many addicts, [it] becomes a way to
numb out painful feelings, kill time or stop feeling lonely, says Kelly McDaniel, licensed
professional counselor in San Antonio, Texas, and author of Ready to Heal: Women Facing
Love, Sex and Relationship Addiction.” (Elizabeth Landau, “When Sex Becomes An Addiction,”
CNN.com) Hmmmm, maybe I should start referring to myself
as a chocolamaniac….

  1. I spent 2 years with a nympho. At first its great but it's a nightmare if you don't stop for a while and look around. And the sex is great but the after effects is not. Loss of money, time, risk of STD and worse thing is manipulation. Interference with jobs and family. Depression, stress and her cheating on you. The thought she is sleeping with not just you but other random men can cause panic attacks knowing sex is all she want (and money). But she reassures she is not cheating. My ex yes I thought she would change but I called her my girlfriend. She was also indulging in drugs. For a nympho, meth enhances sexual stimulation. I suffer to this day from the foolishness of me allowing her to manipulate me over sex which at the end was not worth it. But hard lesson learned. It was a fantasy. Run away from these woman. They are slick for a newbie and even those who have experience. And I lost two of my cars from a nympho/ meth addict. I now take the transit bus. Becareful guys I wish I would have hid from these demons.

  2. I once met an older gentleman who was walking his dog on the beach. We started talking and he mentioned he was 92 years of age. I was surprised, as he seemed much younger. I remarked on how well he looked,
    He then told me he was so healthy because he always had a lot of sex !

  3. SPOILER ALERT! TEENAGE BOYS… STOP LISTENING NOW!! Continuing to watch this video will format your spank bank… Complete and total reformat with data that can't be retrieved!!

  4. My ex called me a nympho for wanting sex four times a week… Do you guys agree with him? In comparison to him I could be considered that, because he only wanted it every week and a half to two weeks

  5. The DSM V does not have sexual addiction in it. There is not study verifying anything such as sexual addiction. There are people who like to have a lot of sex for a wide variety of reasons. Some are bipolar,and some just want to. But either way, his first statement about it being an addiction is false per modern psychiatry.

  6. I'm a Nymphomaniac and most men like it at first but inevitably I always hear the same thing from men "Give me a break I'm old!!" The last guy who told me that was only 36 and younger than me! I think men just get lazy after a while.
    And yes I am mentally ill but sex gives me something worth living for (when you can get it).

  7. There's nothing wrong with a woman who's a nymphomaniac. As long as she's got a monogamous Male partner who she can use for that activity. Like husband wife…. What's wrong with that????

  8. I dated a nympho one time. Her and I went to my parents and my step dad looks at me and says lay off a little bit I thought to my self I haven't been drinking that much. But than I looked over looked like she'd been riding a horse for a couple days.(Lxxxv)#85 poppypower

  9. Guy gets on a plane extremely hot blonde sits down right next to him when they get talking and she seems to be turned on guys like my lucky day she precedes to explain that she's a nymphomaniac and she has a particular kink inquisitive and she's friendly he says what's your kink he said she said well they're hard to find but I'm into Jewish Cowboys without a blink he said you're in luck my name is Bucky Goldberg😝

  10. I was a lucky guy in high school my first girlfriend was a nymphomaniac and wanted it all day 24/7 no joke to the point as a 15 year old boy I had to say no and that's practically impossible for a 15 year old boy my unit was chafed and worn badly

  11. I would think that sex (a lot or a little) only becomes a problem if it interferes with your relationship, ie. if one has to seek gratification outside of any agreed upon parameters. It would be naive to state that sex should always be an expression of love, but it should always , at least, be enjoyed!

  12. I seem to recall that our favorite humorist Mark Twain stated that a young lady could kill 10 men sexually or something to that effect

  13. These early vid's are pretty piss poor . I have met two nymphomaniacs in my lifetime . Neither of them could actually orgasm no matter how long or hard I went . I also read this about nymphomaniacs in a book a few years later . Both of them had a revolving door of boyfriends over a period of time . One could loose a weekend with Anne Stewart . The last I saw of her was when she was spotted walking up a street with two fully camouflaged soldiers . One on each arm ! I think you should have done more research back in the day .

  14. Did i enjoy your video?
    Not really, there were no telephone numbers!!

  15. LOL Victorian science is hilarious. Be careful, women. If you accidentally stub your toe before noon on a Monday or Friday, you could become a nymphomaniac!!!

  16. I had one 6.3 ft 386 pounds slim waist big hips you can not satisfy them two seconds after you finish she looking for more we are talking every day well she left because she said I never GAVE HER ENOUGH
    well someone gave her enough AIDS she went from 386lbs to 80lbs she died three years ago

  17. Basically anytime you encounter hyper and hypo elements and personality traits of basic human nature .it usually has to do with dif neuro rating and wiring. It overlaps on many diagosis ..starting with anxiety..ocd ..add. mood disorders…high functioning spectrum traits..it is overlap because it is different wiring..and often they are using sex and oxytocin to combat the high anxiety co morbid features.

    It is equal opposite from neurotypical center split neuro physics. For every hyper feature..there is usually a downside. There are no free lunches in life. The more neuro active you are the more alive you are..you can see it in their eyes..it is an electric spark..but most ..have depressive down mode where they feel less alive.

    It is paradoxical nature in general of more capable yet less stable. But split out in a myriad of ways. Nymphomanism is like one of the many venting of pent up neuro energies that is essentially like a symptom of a symptom of a larger and misunderstood variance in human nature and genetics currently. So we have some time until this is more properly grouped and understood with out childish. Uneeded stigma. Thanks for your scoffing at my perspective in advance. Lol

  18. My therapist dubbed me a "sex addict" but honestly I feel more like a pervert. I was exposed to some pretty messed up sexual experiences, movies, romance novels etc., At a fairly young age. I will agree that I used to be a terrible gf and have cheated before. I'm older now and have several kids (big surprise) and have toned it down. but alot of it stems from my emotional state. I'm dating a guy now (for over a year) and we have a very healthy relationship and he teases that if I'm breathing i want sex. But my previous relationship ended terribly and while he still wanted sex I couldn't stand the thought of him touching me. I'm also into choking and such so maybe it's a lost of too much oxygen 😅

  19. Here's a joke for those who may not have heard it yet, concerning married women quitting on sex: "Why do Brides smile so broadly at their weddings?" Answer: "Because they know they've given their last blowjob."

  20. I made the mistake of dating a nymphomaniac when I was 20 years old. At first, I thought it was great! She was ALWAYS ready for sex, and at that age, so was I. Then, she was going out with her male friends while I would stay home to maintain my "party house" and she would come home and tell me that she gave oral to two of them, and was penetrated by a third. This became a regular thing which was embarrassing to me as she announced this to all of my friends! At that time in my life I wanted a standard monogamous relationship, so I had very mixed feelings. She was INCREDIBLY HOT, and the sex was incredible, but even though she was 100% honest about all of the cheating instead of lying to me, I had to speak my mind to her and broke up with her. She was upset and cried, but at the same time she made my friends think that I was a fool, and then rumors started to spread that she had given me an STD which temporarily ruined my sex life. Fortunately I didn't catch anything from her and kept a copy of my lab results handy to dispel any fears. What would you do if all of this happened to you? Please comment. Thanks.

  21. I dated a sex addict, it was fun for a few weeks, but got old quick. I was mentally and physically drained. The calls were non stop, texting etc.

  22. The only nympho I've ever known was a 300lb woman I worked with, she would suck you off anywhere anytime..at work….

  23. What crap this is. Has anyone ever thought that sex addicts might be wired to feel & appreciate sex more than other people. Think about it: there are people with great vision: better than 20/20, athletes who can break 10 seconds in the 100 meter dash, people who can dunk basketballs, people who can't. There are people who are less than 5 feet tall & people who are more than 7 feet tall. Why shouldn't there be people who feel substantially more gratification from sex than the rest of us. They are simply wired differently.

  24. I noticed when I went to work she would not move till I came home would not cook would not even feed the dog just fux when she left after she started a fight. she came back days later with a very smelly vagina crying .lots of accusation of me cheating wild screaming then she gave me gonorrhea and she blamed me I went and got myself helped she wouldn't go . that's when I said hey you got to go and that was a big ordeal in itself but I survived it's been years later and I don't want to have nothing to do with anything like that again amen.

  25. 'Lust' in the King James Bible (which you quoted) doesn't refer specifically to sexual desire but to all out-of-control craving.

  26. Now if they can find the root cause, synthesize it, put it into a pill for women it could be the next viagra !

  27. They complain about a woman sexual urges yet the same doctors was the ones to masturbate women on the the diagnosis of Hysteria

  28. This video is mistitled. It's really 10 myths about nymphomaniacs. Facts would probably be more interesting.

  29. Im not goona give a way who i realy am or who my girlfriend is. But just know im speeking anonamusly for both me and her. Shes one ok. its not that bad. The trick is to try to keep up its not like its bad thing. And thats one thing i can do easy. U said its not the most healthy relations shif fuck u man we love eachother lol and have fun doing it. if u cant keep up with ur girl what kinda man are u lol. Anyone ladys out there who actualy enjoy it fucken go at it christanity be damed. Most of it was made up by mankind anyway shit isent so bad ull lurn that when u die. its got truth to it but the majority is bulllshit. ur life is urs to live and ur afterlife is urs to chose. Dont ask how i know this for a fact ok. u wouldent beleve me if i told u and im forbiden to anyway. Well i meen unless humanity wants to get erased from existence. wich i could make happen by spilling everything righ here right now of what im being taught. its not cuzz the majority of u majority of u dont have the capasity to truely lirn a select few would be intreeged how ever record these things one thing would lead to a nother beffor u know it theres documents on the otherside and bame we get it erased. like said majority of u would simply call me mad its a that .6% of humanity im worryed about. I will say one thing though demons angles valkri are all honor and loyalty prized races its what they valu above all. There is no good and evil just ying and yang light and dark. the war was introduced by man in the bibale as a way to relate. Humanity is driven by war and desire at a primal level wich is why it was introduced to the bibale when it comes to heavan and hell as a way to make it less alian. The vary origanl bibal riten by the wiseman jesus him self was a bit more shail we say tame when it came ot the other side. Keep in mind im not some fit guy im not obeast but ima lil heavy and way out of shape but i can keep up with my girl if i push my self shit is tireing i will admit and i dont even live with her. But still shes my girl. agien its not like im giveing u my name this is merely a guy ina throne with a chesey name ur seeing its not like u actualy know who i am and what girl im talken about. So its technicly anonomess statments so im not worryed.

  30. In my experience, dealing with a Nympho was not near as fun as I thought it might be…they struggle with a compulsive personality that does nearly everything compulsively… so, wear you out, they will, as Yoda would say…and also wear out your wallet , your patience , and her welcome…I split both time before the grenade pin was pulled.
