I'm always horny

By Rose Odengo December 29, 06:00 am
Beryl's always aroused. Cold showers, masturbation or sexwon't stop her urges. Her boyfriend can't keep her satisfied. She’s worried that she’s a nymphomaniac.

'One day I was in a matatu and on the radio, a lady called in to say that she could meet a man and then five minutes later be banging his brains out. I recognized this feeling! I can sense the judgment from you. But you know what? I don’t care.'

Am I a nympho? Do I suffer from ‘persistent genital arousal disorder’

'But I don’t actually sleep around with just anyone. I am in a monogamous relationship so I only have sex with my boyfriend. But like that woman on the radio, I am horny all the time.

At times the slightest thing sets me off – cologne or a simple smile. I liked it initially but now, I am kind of worried I may have a condition like nymphomania or something. I recently went online and saw another condition called ‘persistent genital arousal disorder’. I’m scared. Could I have that?"

Boyfriend not enough…

'My boyfriend used to love the fact that I was always willing to have sex with him anywhere and anyhow. It was amazing when we first slept together. But soon, he just said frankly that he couldn’t keep up with my sex drive. Initially, I thought I was ovulating because it used to be the case that I would get more aroused around that time. But that was obviously not the only source of my horniness.

So I got myself dildos to complement my boyfriend. And at times we use them together, so he doesn’t feel left out.'

Sex toys not enough…

'But nothing seems to work. It has gotten so bad over the years, that at times I carry sex toys to work and jack off in the bathroom.

I can barely concentrate on anything and when I’m doing boring things like watching news, washing clothes, or cooking, I just want to have sex.

'Occasionally I feel afraid of myself. I have spoken to my boyfriend about it and he asked me to see a counsellor or some other specialist. I did and it didn’t go well. I was told that I have a lack of self-control and I should stop watching pornography. But I don’t even watch porn or look at X-rated magazines. Nothing! I even forward sex scenes in movies because I am afraid it will make things worse.'

Exercise not enough…

'Since masturbation isn’t working and I’m tiring out my boyfriend, I tried sports. My friend recommended it. She said it will help shift my mind to other things. I took up swimming. I swim an hour a day, five times a week. So far it has helped somewhat, but not completely. About two hours after my swim, I am locked behind doors with my sex toys.'

'I am so afraid of myself now. It is making things weird for me and my boyfriend, and I don’t want to feel like this anymore. I want to go back to being normal. This can’t be normal.'

You need real prayers so that God can deliver you. This is a bondage for you, kindly seek some help from the spiritual church around and talk to the pastor.
What you have is a disorder in the Arousal phase of Masters and Johnsons hierarchy. Don't see a doctor or a physician, see a Psychiatrist. It doesn't mean u re abnormal, no. You will be helped with therapies from different schools of thought that may help lower the arousal to normality.
