Are You Sexually Preoccupied?
Is sex constantly on your mind? Are sexual thoughts interfering with everyday tasks? Are your actions harmful or inappropriate in nature?
Sexual thoughts are a normal part of human sexuality. They can be triggered by a variety of things, such as seeing someone attractive, reading erotic material, or simply feeling aroused. Sexual thoughts can be pleasant or unpleasant, and they can vary in intensity. However, sexual thoughts can become abnormal if they are excessive, intrusive, or disturbing. For example, if someone has so many sexual thoughts that they interfere with their daily life, or if they have sexual thoughts that cause them significant distress, then this may be a sign of a sex addiction.
Other signs that sexual thoughts may be abnormal include:
- Having sexual thoughts about children or other non-consenting adults
- Having sexual thoughts that are violent or aggressive
- Having sexual thoughts that cause you to feel guilty or ashamed
- Feeling unable to control your sexual thoughts
Here are some tips for managing sexual thoughts:
- Accept that sexual thoughts are normal
- Challenge your negative thoughts
- Distract yourself
- Seek professional help
