Study: Adult ADHD symptoms play important role in hypersexuality and problematic pornography use

psypost.org
  • Hypersexuality and problematic pornography use could be a symptom of ADHD - however, causality can’t be inferred from the study.
  • But it's still a signal that hypersexuality might be a surface-level symptom of deeper problems.
  • This conclusion comes from an anonymous survey of 14,043 individuals (women = 30.2%) aged 18 to 76.
  • The higher the level of ADHD symptoms, the higher the level of hypersexuality in surveyed group.
  • ADHD symptoms were mainly associated with problematic pornography use in men, and less in women who engage in romantic or casual sexual behaviours instead.
