Re: Abnormal sexual urges?

On the radio it mentioned a middleaged guy who all of a sudden got sexual urges about children. Told his doctor about this and found out he had some tumor.

Re: Abnormal sexual urges?

The only thing I can say is that most of my decrease or extreme increase came from what Matt described, mania. And coupled with ADD which is a disorder of "impulse control" it would make sense that there might be more of a ratio of people with "mood" or "impulse control" disorders who had issue wiht abnormal urges, or extremes.

Perhaps if the brain was wired normal it might not lead to more progression of the urges that might cause issues down the line with a more extreme version of the urge. Meaning a "normal" person's brain might have thoughts about extra marital affairs, but never act on it, but a person who has a mood, or impulse disorder, would act out on it over time and on a more regular basis.

I know I had issues especially at a younger age. Some was my mood disorder some was insecurites or poor self esteem. I have had some weird thoughts, but never really an urge so to speak. I guess that is normal, like dreaming about having sex with a female, multiple partners, S & M etc..but never really feeling the urge to do it?

Hard topic, but one that I believe has merit and is worth discussing. Perhaps after you talk about it more, you might feel more open and comfortable to discuss with a professional at some time before it causes any issue in your own life.


Hope

Must be nice. JK.

I found that my sexual behavior has been impulsive as far as actions and urges are concerned. It was like, thought about it, became an urge and did it, some of it is a male thing, the other two parts are being the "H" of AD/HD and definitely mania. The difference with mania is it seems more or less like action, there isn't as much thought as with the impulse of just being impulsive. Mania can have an effect on safety measures etc. too, since I am prone to manic behavior often by choice but not always, I try to carry things around with me all of the time so that way I can at least be safe (condoms). If not then I have to repeat the 'cycle of fear' as I put it (i.e. Unsafe sex acts, testing for STD's, fear of a positive test for something incurable).

Re: Abnormal sexual urges?

I am so glad that I FINALLY found a post like this. I understand it may be dead by now, I hope it's not, so I am going to post something anyway.

Nearly 2 years ago, I was diagnosed with mild ADHD and given a prescription for Adderall 20mg/2X daily while I was at school. This was in April '08, and I continued using the meds through exams (which I did better than stellar with) and through the summer without real problem. There were occasiona moments where I was either extremely agitated or completely engulfed in something, but other than that nothing too extreme.

However, when I returned to school in the Fall of '08, I met my lovely girlfriend whom I adore and after we had sex, I became a sexual maniac. I know that increased libido is a side-effect, not so common in men but still apparent, and on the nights we did not have sex I had to masturbate, and sometimes these sessions would go on for hours, until 3 or 4 in the morning, and really only happened when I was very depressed and needed a release other than the gym.

It was also along this time that, whenever I was downloading porn , whenever something that was child porn would pop up, I would delete it, but find myself curious about it and continue searching it out for hours. It did not arouse me, but for some reason I continued to look for it. The next morning/day, whenever I got the chance, I would think to myself, "Why the ***** did I download this!?" and would delete it, unless I had taken the medicine where, for some reason, I found it okay.

Long story short, this went on until April '09 when I was arrested for possession of child porn. I was completely honest, told them the entire time I was being interrogated I have absolutely NO IDEA why I did it, and that I know I would NEVER do anything like that to a child. I am still awaiting trial as there have been many unnecessary setbacks.

I never put two-and-two together until after I stopped taking the meds due to the great state of depression I was in with the ongoing case, and realized my sex drive was far less (despite the sadness I felt) and that I didn't even really have the urge to look at porn. I took a good look at the side-effects and realized the severe personality and arousal changes it can make, especially if taking too much.

I would like to know if anyone has heard of the medication completely altering one's perceptions on anything? It stands to reason that since it's such a powerful, mind-altering drug, it can create a totally different form of someone; I know it has in my case and I need help because I am innocent but only a victim of trying to help myself at school and such!

PLEASE HELP AND FEEL FREE TO PM ME!

Re: Abnormal sexual urges?

can we define an abnormal sexual urge to your wife's cousin? if you get aroused even you just talk to her?

Re: Abnormal sexual urges?

sometimes sexual urges are odd, you can't explain it unless you take a deeper look on it
