Talk about it: When you say "over active", this is very subjective. What you consider over active may be perfectly normal to someone else. Before you seek treatment, i would talk with your doctor or a therpaist in your area who specializes in sexual disorders to see if there really is a problem.

But is it? : The most important issue is whether your sex drive more or less matches your partners.
