The Nookie Know-It-All: Curious About Nymphomania

“What is the technical definition of a sex addict?” — Potential Nympho, via email

The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity has defined sexual addiction as “engaging in persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite increasing negative consequences to self and others.” Translated, that means that a sex addict is not like Samantha on Sex and the City. It’s way more serious than that.

Sex addicts tend to have the same compulsive personality that alcohol, drug, and gambling addicts have. But while booze, drugs, and card playing aren’t required for human survival, sex is. Sure, some people can choose to be celibate…but having a sex drive is a normal, healthy thing. Because of this, sexual addiction is one of the hardest addictions to treat.

A few signs sexual addicts might exhibit (in case you were curious), after the jump…

Warning: Side Effects May Include More Reasons To Be Depressed

Have you been turnin’ that frown upside down by poppin’ pills like Prozac? Well, your little picker-uppers might be doing more bad than good. For 20-some odd years, a set of antidepressants called SSRIs had been favored because they supposedly had less harmful side effects. However, a new study has shown that ye ole dry mouth and drowsiness seem like a dream compared to the newer meds, which can cause loss of sensation in your crotch, lack of libido, and impotence. Boo! How would that make anyone but drug companies happier? We hear at The Frisky are no medical experts, but sex puts the up in cheer up for us. So, if you’re having a hard time getting off, you should talk to your doctor about getting turned on to something else. [Psychcentral]

Do Girls Love Watching Guys Who Like Guys?

When I was in college I lived with a gay guy for a couple years who had a truly impressive collection of gay porn. I’m sure when he would watch it in private he was, you know, take care of business, but he was also fond of watching it in the living room like it was a regular ol’ romantic comedy. As a result, I got really used to watching graphic gay porn while I was doing homework or making dinner. While I’m totally desensitized to the images of spread legs and multiple penises, I never became one of the women the Village Voice talks about who loves gay porn. But I have a straight female friend who totally gets off on it. I have to admit that man-on-man loves does give me a little flutter (see: Y Tu Mama Tambien and Brokeback Mountain) but gay porn just has too much ween for my taste. But to each their own!

Happy National Masturbation Month!

May is National Masturbation Month. In the mid-’90s, when U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jocelyn Elders recommended masturbation be taught as a form of safe sex, she was fired. To protest, Good Vibrations, a San Francisco based sex toy company run by Dr. Carol Queen, started the annual celebration of self-love. This year, the company will host its 11th Live Masturbation-A-Thon, a benefit to raise privates and private funds for community-based sex education and health organizations. So far, the event has set a world record — Norine Dworkin got off for over 6 hours. Impressive! [AC via Nerve] Keep reading »

Another Reason To Get Tested For HPV

Testing for HPV can be twice as effective at protecting women from developing cervical abnormalities as smear testing, according to a study carried out by Hammersmith hospital. In addition to cytology (smear test), the 3,000 women who participated in the study were given an HPV test when they came in for a routine visit. The results showed that the risk of developing cervical abnormalities at 1, 5, and 9 years after a normal smear test was .33 percent, .83 percent, and 2.20 percent. After a negative HPV test, the risk was .19 percent, .42 percent, and 1.88 percent. Keep reading »
