Having sex, masturbating or even daydreaming about “naughty” things are not always appropriate depending on where you are and what you are doing, and many people have ruined relationships, lost jobs, and even comprised their health because of their uncontrollable sex drive.

Fortunately, there are many things you can do to alleviate these sexual urges.

This guide explores the root cause of your constant feeling of horniness and what you can do to gain control.

Why Am I So Horny?

Sex and procreation is the driving force behind humans evolution, so constantly feeling aroused can be very normal.

Sexual arousal is the heightening of sexual desire during or in anticipation of sexual activity. The body and mind undergo a number of physiological changes in preparation for sexual intercourse (e.g. men get an erection).

Internal fluctuation of hormones, as well as mental stimuli and physical stimuli such as touch and sexually explicit material, can influence sexual arousal.

This makes feeling horny — even too horny– a completely natural sensation. Humans, after all, are hardwired to have sex and procreate, seeing as our survival as a species depends on it.

In fact, all human progress is in one way or another fueled by the desire for sex, and sexual arousal is a powerful motivator that spurs men to accumulate resources so that he can attract women to fornicate with.

Is it a wonder that sex feels so damn good?

But while all of us are programmed to have sexual urges, not everyone experiences them to the same degree or gets turned on by the same things. What gets me ‘excited’ might do absolutely nothing for you.

Because libido and sexual arousal are subjective, it’s hard to know what’s considered “a lot” or “constant.”

If, however, you believe your sexual urges are getting in the way of your daily life, understanding the possible reasons for why you are always horny is the first step in treating your “condition.”

Causes Of Constant Arousal

Stop Watching Porn - NoFap

Porn and excessive masturbation keep men in a constant state of arousal and distract them from achieving excellence.

There are a number of different possible reasons for why you are frequently horny. Here are six key ones.

Your Hormones

Hormones play a major role in you sex drive, and none as much as testosterone.

An increase in testosterone may boost arousal, with research showing that people who frequently engage in sexual behavior have higher testosterone.

Eating Too Much Aphrodisiac Foods

Certain foods can kick your sex drive into overdrive, making you crave some happy time between the sheets.

Aphrodisiacs foods to watch out for include avocado, celery, watermelon, bananas, blackberries, almonds, steak, broccoli, oatmeal, and mangoes.

Alcohol And Drugs

Does drinking booze make you tingle down under? You and me both.

Although alcohol and other chemical substances can suppress sexual function over time, they may initially make you more horny.

That’s because they lower your inhibitions, help you relax, and leave you feeling a bit more willing to pursue sex than if you were sober.

Constant Contact Of Genitals

Having genitalia on the outside of the body makes them susceptible to frequent rubbing, tugging, and touching, all of which can lead to suggestive sexual thoughts and constant arousal.

Hypersexuality, Sexual Addiction

Although its normal to have intense sexual urges, your constant state of horniness might be due to a hypersexual disorder or even sexual addiction.

Whether or not hypersexual is a real condition is up for debate, but if these urges are interfering with your ability to be productive in your day-to-day life or form relationships, then you might want to see a doctor or sex therapist.

Too Much Masturbation

While it’s true that men think about sex more than women, research shows that it’s not by much. Women have dirty minds, too.

You know another thing that men do more than women that possibly makes them hornier? Masturbate!

Unfortunately, a lot of guys masturbate too much for their own good.

Can You Be Too Horny?

Self Agency is not good or bad

Being horny all the time is not necessarily a bad thing. It can be normal and healthy for some people.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing to be always horny. In fact, it can be very normal.

Remember, having a sexual drive is a healthy thing, as is engaging in sexual activity. And what is considered “constantly turned on for one person might be a low libido for another.

Constant arousal and the need to engage in sexual behavior only become a problem when you have a compulsive urge to act on them in unproductive and even destructive ways that interfere with other aspects of your life.

Sex is a remarkable force of nature, and there is nothing less prudent than a man who wastes his sexual energy on excessively masturbating to porn, chasing women every waking hour, and engaging in other life-deteriorating vices.

Control is key. The goal is to control the dissipation of your sexual energy so that it can be deliberately channeled to more productive and beneficial endeavors.

Want to start and grow a business? How about getting a promotion at work or writing a book? Use your insatiable sex drive to make them happen!

It might help to learn more about the ancient practices of semen retention and sexual transmutation, the greatest secrets behind the success of every great inventor, artist, and highly accomplished person.

Once you understand the true power of sex, you might not even care about finding out how to stop being horny. Why would you want to suppress such power?

But it behooves you to talk with a medical professional if your sexual cravings is so intense that you can’t seem to get anything done. This could be a sign of a hypersexual disorder.

Do This To Stop Being Horny

Semen Retention Exercise Method

Exercise can be an effective way to get your mind off sexual cravings.

If you find that your sex drive is too strong to tame, you may want to dampen it. Luckily, there are many treatment options available to relieve an annoying sexual itch, and most of them are free.

There is likely to be a mix of treatments you already know, while several of them might sound completely bonkers.

Ultimately, though, you may need to talk with a doctor to get a better understanding of the possible underlying issues responsible for your constant state of horniness.

Have Regular Sex

As obvious as it may sound, having regular sex can help you feel sexually fulfilled and keep your unquenchable sex drive in check so that you are not always aroused.

Sexual intimacy with your partner can not only do wonders for your relationship, but it can also improve your overall well being. Regular sex can help relieve stress and regulate your hormones.

Exercise

Exercise is a different kind of physical engagement, but it’s certainly one that can help get your mind off sex and alleviate some of your pent-up sexual tension.

Remember what we said about channeling your sexual energy into productive activities? Well, working on your body and mind is one of those activities.

Change Your Diet

Try cutting out the aphrodisiac foods we mentioned earlier.

While you’re at it, reduce your alcohol consumption (no amount of alcohol is good for you), and refrain from eating sugar-rich foods, animal products, and processed foods.

In addition to messing up the hormonal balance that manages your libido, they are killing you slowly.

Learn To Meditate

Feeling horny isn’t not just a physical sensation, it’s also a state of mind. As such, meditation can imbue you with more mental discipline to control any desire and urge, including those dealing with sex.

If you are not currently channeling some of your sexual energy into meditation, maybe it’s time you did.

Work On Your Passion

Not into meditation? Find it hard to drag yourself to the gym or go for a run? There are a multitude of other productive activities that you can divert your sexual energy to.

Work on a passion that’s dear to you. If you don’t have one, consider finding a hobby or volunteer opportunity that excites and inspires you. Don’t be afraid to try new things.

Masturbate

We have written at length about how the porn and masturbation epidemic is creating a generation of mediocre men, but it’s hard to deny that masturbation is not entirely bad.

Like regular sex, masturbation can help you release built-up sexual tension, reduce stress and anxiety, and sleep better.

On the other hand, there are many reasons why shouldn’t masturbate, which you can find in our comprehensive list of plausible NoFap benefits.

We are reluctant to offer masturbation as a treatment option, so only masturbate as a last resort, when everything else fails to alleviate you monstrous sexual cravings.

Definitely don’t masturbate if you are addicted to it and if it interferes with your work, personal relationships, or other life commitments.
