High Sex Drive in Women
By Kristen Sollee Aug 23 If you fantasize about sex frequently, masturbate on the daily, and always have an insatiable urge to press the flesh, you might be a woman with a high sex drive. Contrary to what patriarchy would have us believe, this doesn't make you a "slut" or a "dream girl," and it doesn't make you better or worse than a woman with an average or low sex drive. Still, being female and DTF often means you will be judged in both explicit or subtle ways by those around you. As long as there has been recorded history, there has been the idea that men of any sexual orientation crave sex like they crave air and water. Women's sexual desires, on the other hand, have been demonized if they fall outside socially acceptable bounds. Case in point: Originating in ancient Greece, hysteria was a catch all diagnosis for women that explained a host of things, from anxiety to increased libido.
These Are The Challenges Women With High Sex Drives Face
Acetylcholine  Sex hormone levels and the menstrual cycle[ edit ] A woman's desire for sex is correlated to her menstrual cycle , with many women experiencing a heightened sexual desire in the several days immediately before ovulation ,  which is her peak fertility period, which normally occurs two days before until two days after the ovulation. According to Gabrielle Lichterman, testosterone levels have a direct impact on a woman's interest in sex. According to her, testosterone levels rise gradually from about the 24th day of a woman's menstrual cycle until ovulation on about the 14th day of the next cycle, and during this period the woman's desire for sex increases consistently.
This has been backed up by various statistical findings. Doctors attribute this behaviour to the fact that the sex drive depends on the levels of testosterone , a hormone found in abundance in men. On the other hand, women have only one tenth of the amount of testosterone as men. However, there are cases where women have increased testosterone levels, and this can cause a high sex drive in women.
