So, you’re a tiger in the bedroom. You’re always ready to go, and when you’re not, you can get in the mood fast. Maybe you’re single, or perhaps you’re in a committed relationship. But you’re in your prime, and you know it. And you’re definitely going to take advantage of it while you can. The question is, can too much libido be bad for you? Or is it time to detox your sex life?

It all comes down to whether or not you’re practicing sexual wellness. When looking at your high libido, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself to determine if it’s detrimental to your health and emotional wellbeing.

Look at Your Relationships

Is your high libido damaging your relationships? We’re not just talking about romantic relationships here. Has your sexual activity hurt relationships with friends or sexual partners? Maybe your partner says you want too much sex, you struggle to be faithful, or a close friend becomes hurt when you sleep with their ex.

Most people focus on struggling with low sex drive. But, if you’re overly into it or causing tension in your relationships, it’s something you need to look at. If you have a significant other, and your high libido is causing friction in your relationship, communication is key to solving the problem.

Have an open, honest conversation about your sexual needs and desires, as well as those of your partner to see how you can better connect in your relationship.

Consider Your Safety

The most important thing to consider when looking at your high libido is whether or not you are practicing safe-sex safely. If your high libido is causing you to make impulsive decisions, engaging in sex with strangers, or without protection, it’s a sign that the behavior is harmful.

Endangering your health and the health of others as a result of your sexual activity is a red flag requiring you to do some serious self-evaluation.

Sex Addiction

If you believe your high libido may be harmful, learn to recognize the signs of sex addiction. It’s a serious psychological condition that can have a serious impact on both your life and the lives of those around you.

Symptoms include: 

  • Obsessive sexual thoughts
  • The inability to stop having sex despite consequences
  • Feeling guilty, remorseful, or bad about oneself after engaging in sex
  • Relationship problems related to sexual behavior
  • Engaging in unprotected and compulsive sexual activity with strangers

If you believe you have been struggling with sex addiction, some dedicated counselors can help you address the underlying causes.

High Libido Isn’t Always Bad

After reading the above information, you may realize that none of the danger signs apply to you. You may be in a happy, healthy relationship where both you and your partner have tons of sex. Research states that there are many health benefits of having sex and having sex every day can be good for you.

Your sex life is exactly that. Yours. If you have a high libido, are happy, satisfied, safe, and healthy, there’s nothing wrong with getting it on.
