Below Row: About 10% of men and 7% of women have reported significant levels of suffering and social distress associated with difficulty in controlling their feelings, impulses and sexual behavior.
Because the research is interesting: The disorder of compulsive sexual behavior (CSBD) is a persistent model of failure to control intense sexual impulses that can cause discomfort and social disability. Evaluating how common these social discomforts and disabilities are can help provide the closest estimate of CSBD in the population considering the lack of previous studies and the debate on the specific presentation of symptoms and definitions related to hypersexuality.
