Yes, my first time. I'm in excellent physical health.

Hello and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I'm Dr Ted Manos M.D. and I have counseled numerous patients about the role sex plays in our lives. I'm pretty sure you are of the male gender and it will justify my information. You can tell me your age and gender.

I'm male and 28 years old. I'm constantly thinking about sex and seeking it on the hour, every hour...more than the average male. I wouldn't consider myself a sex addict because I don't have actual sex intercourse very often. Maybe once every 2 weeks with a different partner. That's why I'm here, I getting sick of ALWAYS looking for it.
Mental Health Professional: Dr Ted Manos, Doctor (MD) replied 11 months ago
Thanks for your reply. Males are driven by testosterone and erections. Young males, for sure, think about sex as often as you share you do. Women do not have the same mechanism and they are aroused by their mind and intangibles about relationship with males. Young males are stallions that will roam the range until someone corrals them and calms them down to be a dependable resource. I'm not sure about the relationships you've had but it would help if you came across a partner that can harness your power. You could get counseling to find out what might be parts of your life you don't realize need attention. I hope this can give you perspective to at least not thinking there is something wrong with you.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
