Don't believe anyone who claims that men are the only ones with insatiable sexual desires; that's a complete lie. The reality is that some women enjoy sex just as much, if not more, than many men, and our challenges in this regard are profound.
1. You're Thought Of As Promiscuous Rather Than Open-Minded
It's a wonderful thing to fully embrace your sexuality and enjoy sex, but unfortunately, there are still those who associate a woman's love for sex with promiscuity. At first, you might try to prove them wrong, but eventually, this misconception becomes just one of the many challenges faced by women who fully embrace their sexual nature.
2. You're Turned On Almost Too Easily
While it's one thing to feel aroused by Fifty Shades of Grey, many women who have a strong desire for sex find themselves shifting in their seats during sex scenes in TV shows like Game of Thrones or The Vampire Diaries. It's not inherently wrong, but it can be challenging to deal with constantly feeling sexually charged like a pubescent teenage boy.
3. You Really Feel It When Your Partner Isn't In The Mood
At times, the challenge of turning on your partner can be fun and thrilling, but on other occasions, their lack of enthusiasm can be discouraging. This is not a reflection of their disinterest in you, but rather a case where your own sexual desire has surpassed theirs. Nevertheless, it's difficult not to feel the sting of rejection.
4. Sometimes It Feels Like You're Always The One Initiating Sex
Similar to the experience of rejection, when one partner desires sex more frequently, they are often the one initiating it more often than not. While some couples find satisfaction in having sex once or twice a week, it can be a real struggle for women who desire it more frequently but have partners who are not on the same page.
5. People Mistake Your Love Of Sex For A Sex Addiction
Unlike having a sex addiction where the inability to engage in sexual activity can disrupt daily functioning, this is different. In fact, if you're unable to have sex with your partner, you can still satisfy yourself without issue. There's a significant difference between the two.
6. You Feel Immature Doing Something As Simple As Making Out
While a primary purpose of a makeout session may be to get you in the mood for the next level of physical intimacy, when you have a high sex drive, making out alone can be enough to turn you on. This can make you feel like you're back in your high school freshman year, craving sexual experiences.
7. Keeping A Tally On Your Weekly Sex Is Exhausting
If you have a love for sex, it's probable that you'll keep track of how often you engage in sexual activity on a weekly basis. If this number falls below what you consider normal or average for your relationship, it can begin to affect you emotionally. While keeping a tally of your sex life can be tiring, it's something you can't seem to resist doing.
8. You Feel Like Talking Openly About It Is A No-No
Some friends may view your discussions about sex as boasting, while others may not be interested in hearing the details of your sexual desires. While both reactions are valid, for someone who values sex, being unable to express themselves can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and make them feel like they're abnormal in some way. (Rest assured, this is not the case.)
9. You Often Need To Get Friendly With A Good Vibrator
Regardless of whether you're in a relationship or dating someone regularly, the desire for sexual gratification can arise unexpectedly. While having a reliable sex toy can be helpful, it's not a replacement for the real thing, and at times, it can be challenging to feel fully satisfied.
10. You've Googled What A Normal Sex Drive Is Too Many Times
In reality, understanding what's considered "normal" or "average" isn't critical if you feel emotionally balanced and sexually fulfilled. Although it can be challenging at times to be a woman with strong sexual desires, embracing your sexuality is an empowering and liberating experience.
