dc.description.abstract Our culture has a normative perception of sex as an essential act used to procreate. When men and women deviate from this behavior and engage in excessive sex with multiple partners this can be viewed as "deviant". This deviance is termed as "hypersexual". Hypersexual is defined as when someone experiences a heightened sex drive, engages in frequent and obsessive sexual intercourse leading to distress & disfunction in daily life. This paper will argue that the deviance of Hypersexual Disorder (HD) results in psychological and physical harm and therefore should be included in the Diagnostic Statistic Manual. en_US
