Study Explores Sexual Abuse and Hypersexuality

A new study on the relationship between sexual abuse and hypersexuality focuses on gender differences. 

Published in August in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the study analyzed data from 16,823 adults in Hungary who completed a questionnaire on their sexual abuse history, issues with hypersexuality, and sexual function. 

Participants who had been sexually abused in the past were categorized by the ages at which sexual abuse occurred.

Seven percent of the entire group had experienced abuse at age 13 or younger. Twenty percent were age 14 or older when the abuse occurred. And 10% were abused during both of these time periods. 

For men and women, abuse at any age was associated with hypersexuality. However, the association was stronger for men who had been abused as children and as adolescents/adults.
