How To Address Someone With A Hypersexuality Problem?
, my future husband claimed to be a hypersex. How do I respond to someone who is hypersex, does the hypersex make the next relationship? I feel like to cancel my marriage 😢
Hello Azthie, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hypersexuality, also known as compulsive sexual behavior or sexual addiction is a condition when a person feels difficult to control their sexual activities, causing interference with the ability to work, the ability to maintain relationships and the ability to complete daily activities.
Sexual activities intended here do not have to be sex in general, but can also include sexual fantasies, masturbation, cybersex, watching / viewing pornography, or paying sex workers.
To declare a person experiencing hypersexuality, cannot be done so by a layman without prior consultation with a psychiatric specialist (psychiatrist) because a medical and psychological evaluation is required in advance of a person suspected of having this disorder.
Therefore, it is highly recommended that you bring your partner to consult with a doctor for evaluation and determination of whether your partner needs further therapy regarding his sexual life. Regarding whether or not dangerous to your relationship with your partner, of course this can be disturbing in the future if not properly consulted with the doctor and yourself.
For now, what is recommended for you to do is clearly communicate how you want sexual activity to your partner. Also invite your partner to better understand about his condition and what complications (worsening conditions) that can occur if the disorder they have is not treated properly.
Try also to divert sexual stimulation experienced by your partner to something more positive such as exercise, hobbies or relaxation. Make clear the goals of your marriage and your spouse, and focus on those goals.
I hope this helps.
