Re: Unconquerable sexual appetite

I am homosexual with ADHD and have the same thing. I like perving on tradies especially perving on guys that wear footy shorts lol.

The positive side of being homosexual is that it's been proven they have a bigger hypothalamus which controls sexual orientation and homosexual men have the same size hypothalamus as females compared to heterosexual men.

What are footy shorts? Do you mean booty shorts?

In porn scenes, they treat women horribly. I have heard many horror stories of the porn industry. The entire premise seems to be to slowly brainwash people. I began seeing women as sex objects, and your average woman can't possibly compete, in the looks department, with a porn star, so there's that. Plus once a porn actress ages and her looks go downhill and she's out of work, no official good standing establishment will hire a former porn star, so these woman have literally no choice but to keep doing it, and the more they do it, the more hardcore scenes they engage in. Not to mention, there is always a steady stream of women these porn directors can cast. I heard of women right when they turn 18, dropping out of school to shoot porn.

Israel blocks porn websites, so their people can't view it. Perhaps we ought to consider that. These adult film stars are beautiful ladies, they can model professionally, or obtain virtually any other job opposed to degrading themselves for cash.

On the sex drive, I do notice that on concerta, my erections are a little less frequent. I mean, I barely even leave my house, but that's not the point. I want to know that all my plumbing still works when I need it to.

I disagree with it rotting your brain. I personally do not like it and would have a seriously hard time dealing if my husband liked it. Then again, we have a very active sex life so maybe that's part of it?

Porn has always been a male dominated industry. The male population is largely responsible for its success. But what you just said is exactly what you are saying is wrong. Talking about looks going downhill and that no one in a good standing establishment would hire a former porn star is the attitude that keeps these women in porn. The women are taught to view themselves through the eyes of a pervy man so they feel unworthy and that shows in our self esteem and can effect the way other businesses see us. Would someone say that no good standing business would hire a former drug addict ?

This makes the elicit nature of porn more appealing not less and the act of seeking it our is almost as good as viewing it.

There are some women who dont see it as degrading and you are making yet another judgemental statement about porn stars (women). You say its not about looks yet you are talking about their looks anyway.

Re: Unconquerable sexual appetite

Still new the ADHD world but this is another epiphany! I'm 43 and only barely slowing down from when I first discovered masturbation...my wife used to keep up but tailed off a lot over the years. I take care of myself and REALLY look forward to the weekends

I've struggled over the years not to "break the plane" with women I meet and am always worried about being perceived as a perv by my coworkers. Lots of eye contact and frankly I avoid a couple folks on certain days because of their wardrobe. So much of my behavior/thinking seems tied to chasing dopamine. For all the addictions I've had, it makes sense that they've been (minus heroine) far easier to kick than should have been once I found something else to keep my interest.

I'm still flipping between being glad that I'm starting to know why I am the way I am and being mad that I am...

Re: Unconquerable sexual appetite

I've definitely experienced this, and it's an eye-opener (as have been many threads on this awesome site) how many people have similar experiences!

I've been oversexed the minute I hit puberty. I even wrote my own porn as a kid lol, no joke. I wish I still had what I wrote, but I got rid of it all out of shame.

I'm a writer, so I have a really creative mind...I actually sometimes prefer chat where I can really exercise my creativity and enjoy getting the other person off.

I've learned to control myself in public - when I was younger I used to leer a lot, but especially now that I've been meditating a lot I've noticed the effect I have on other people, so I'm considerate and don't want to cause anyone's unhappiness. I do love talking and flirting, and really enjoy the attention I get from the opposite sex, even if it doesn't lead to anything. I have to be careful to be considerate of other people's relationships, because my friendliness can be misconstrued.

Anyways, I often fantasize about being in a relationship like the one Ryan Reynold's character has wife his fiancée in "Deadpool", just completely sexual and irreverent. I def don't have that right now. I know it's just a movie, but I've had a taste of that once or twice in my life and that's just missing right now.

I've also been wondering whether BDSM is connected with either HDD?
lol...kids' masturbation is so cute. [By that I mean "when you are a kid" not "other kids", just want to make that clear!] I started playing with a feather before I knew what I was doing. I got really frustrated because it wasn't doing enough.

Re: Unconquerable sexual appetite

I Wonder, has there ever been an actual study done on this? As far as connections between ADHD and increased libido. Reading through this thread, I pretty much followed the same path growing up. As soon as I found out what sex was, I was obsessed. I honestly always attributed it to the fact that my parents had Cinemax growing up, and I of course would spend many late nights watching there after dark programming. I would really be interested to know if this is an actual established connection, because as with so many other things I have realized since my diagnosis, this would really help to explain a lot of things in my childhood that have thus far gone unexplained.

I think having ADHD, we are more prone to obsessive thoughts due to hyper focus. We are stimulation seekers by nature and can’t focus well until we find something hyper stimulating. Then we can’t pull away.

ADHD makes us more prone to addictions of all types.

That's a good point, one which has dominated a fair portion of my life in fact.
