Resumo

CAMPBELL, M M  e  STEIN, D J. Hypersexual disorder in general practice. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.6, pp. 447-448. ISSN 2078-5135.

Hypersexual disorder is also termed compulsive sexual disorder, sexual addiction and non-paraphilic sexual disorder, reflecting different approaches to conceptualising its aetiology. Increased frequency of sexual behaviour alone does not indicate pathology. Research suggests that within the population with markedly increased frequency of sexual behaviour, there is a group in whom such behaviour leads to distress and impairment. Patients who experience increased frequency and intensity of sexual behaviour, with accompanying distress and impaired life functioning, may seek medical treatment.
