I am beginning to wonder if my large sex drive is healthy.

    Many of my past partners have not been up for sex when I am. Do you think it is healthy to be semi-permanantly aroused? I mean, it has never bothered me before but recently I noticed that I seem ten times as horny as everyone else all the time! As a young man, I know that my sex drive is going to be a little higher but this seems ridiculous. Anyway, do you think I am worrying over nothing or over thinking this? I don't think sex is wrong and I enjoy having a big sexual appetite but I wanted to get this off my chest and get an opinion from some of you nice people. :D Thanks a lot!

    Not sure how old you are but I don't think you have a problem. Hell, at 70 I still get horny a lot.

    I love your avatar VTG. Oh, and don't stress over your high sex drive. Soon enough you'll have a lot on my mind besides sex. If you throw yourself into a career, get marrried, have kids, and a mortgage you'll be too busy taking care of all of that to think about sex 24/7.

    Hi VITG nothing to be concerned about, you are just like a lot of us here.
    We may not be average but I think still quite normal.
    Perhaps one day you will meet a woman whose libido leaves you dry blowing; believe me they exist I am fortunate/unfortunate depending on mood, to be live with one.

    Thank you CL! I like your avatar too! ;) You are most likely correct about being busy.

    Thanks bushwalker, I agree that we are normal. Haha, you are lucky to have found such a lady if you ask me! :)

    High sex drive throughout much of a lifetime can be normal for some men, myself included. Not all men are so blessed, however. The trick for men like us is to find a good woman who's libido matches our own. I too am lucky to have found such a woman, even after 26 years together, so they are there for sure.

    I'll take a stab in the dark and say i'm probably such a woman...lol.

    Ok hear me out. As a male, it should be a heck of a lot easier feeling that way. Imagine being a catholic little girl? Yeh....that's a tough one to try hide from your peers!

    Anyway...I'm slowly accepting that it's perfectly normal to be as horny as you wanna be so long as no one is being negatively effected by that. You're doing no one any harm and yes, especially as a male, you are normal! :)

    keep it up! *pun intended*

    Healthy sex drive leads to healthy individuals in the absence of STI's; especially into the grey years. Prostate health is one of the biggest concerns of older males these days, and one of the best ways to prevent prostate problems is to engage in sexual activity regularly.

    Here's to a long, healthy, sexy life. There's not a thing wrong with it.

    I agree that there is nothing wrong. In fact I tend to think the only reason why we think a high sex drive would be a problem is because a majority of people are afraid to be 100% honest about how horny they are out of fear of looking bad socially.

    In my younger years I was never sexually active (except with my bf). I am trying to experience new things when it comes to sex. But not necessarily sleep with every male. Which I don't and haven't had sex with anyone recently since my ex and I broke up which was 2 weekends ago.

    So I'm happy to be single right now and having fun.

    I don't think there is a problem. I have a very high drive myself. Unless it gets to the point where it actually interferes with other important things and goals in your life, then you should enjoy it!
