"Sick" love?

A lot of different terms are needed to explain what erotomania is all about. On the one hand, erotomania refers to a personality disorder in which love and adoration for an unattainable person (e.g. a celebrity) take over. On the other hand, erotomania colloquially refers to a pathologically heightened sex drive. In this case, the not always clearly defined terms hypersexuality, sex addiction or satyriasis (in men) and nymphomania (in women) are also used. You can find out why the definition of "sex addiction" is not so simple here. We also show you how PHALLOSAN forte can have a positive effect on your sex drive and sense of pleasure.

Hypersexuality and promiscuity - when is too much "too much"?

Hypersexuality is a term used by doctors and psychologists to describe a range of different sexual behavioral disorders that can have physical and psychological causes. In general, these affect the individual's experience and behavior in such a way that their sexual desire takes on compulsive traits and the pursuit of their sexual desires has a negative impact on the overall reality of their lives. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines hypersexuality in various terms, for example as "increased sexual desire". In this context, the terms satyriasis and donjuanism are also used to describe exaggerated male sexual behavior, as well as nymphomania as a female equivalent. In science, however, nymphomania and satyriasis are rejected as outdated. Even terms such as erotomania or hypersexuality do not solve this problem. The question arises as to how sexual behavior can be quantified and how many sexual acts per day or the frequent changing of sexual partners can be defined as pathological. When diagnosing erotomania or hypersexuality, normative ideas - such as "How many sexual partners are still normal?" - should not play a role. Extremely increased promiscuity (the frequent changing of sexual partners) or the compulsive desire for orgasms, with correspondingly increased sexual and masturbatory behavior, are nevertheless important indicators.

Erotomania as a "love mania"

However, as mentioned at the beginning, erotomania can also refer to a psychological disorder characterized by heightened feelings of love and idolization towards a certain person; in this case, erotomania is also referred to as de-Clérambault syndrome. Those suffering from erotomania are usually almost obsessed with an unattainable person as the object of their desire. Maintaining the illusion that this person reciprocates their personal feelings is crucial to the illness. New reasons are constantly being invented as to why the person they adore does not show their feelings. Erotomania often occurs as a concomitant symptom of a schizophrenic personality disorder.

No more desire - what to do with the "opposite" of erotomania?

As you can see, there are certainly pathologically disturbed sexual behaviors - but sexual desire or promiscuity that are only slightly "above the norm" are by no means among them. As long as sexual preferences do not have a negative impact on well-being and the social fabric, there is no cause for concern.

It is just as normal if there is a lack of desire or simply a lack of energy for regular sex in certain phases of life. For men in particular, desire and erectile function are often a matter of the mind. Stress, depression or a lack of self-confidence about their own sexual skills are common reasons why men are sometimes unable to show any real passion (towards their partner).

But what can you do if the "opposite" of erotomania has taken hold of you? A first step is certainly to question your lifestyle. Men usually know best what is bothering them. Perhaps it helps to reduce a little stress. Incidentally, increased libido is also a frequently occurring, positive side effect of PHALLOSAN forte. In a study in which PHALLSOSAN forte was worn by test subjects over a period of 6 months, some of the participants reported an increased desire for sex. The increased blood flow to the penis due to the slight traction creates the illusion in the body of having an erection. This can potentially awaken the desire for sexual intercourse. It should also be taken into account that increased self-confidence through PHALLOSAN forte can also increase the desire for sex.
