No brakes: Alcohol is a depressant which especially tends to impair portions of our brain which serve as the "brakes" in slowing down a variety of strong impulses. When those impulses are not slowed down by the "rational" processes that most of us consider before acting on them, they can feel stronger.

Hello. : Hello. If you were a 17 year old male, i would probably say that being horny a lot of the time was pretty normal. The main question here, is if your libido (sex drive) is causing problems in your life. If you have a very strong sex drive and your partner has very little, that can create tension in a relationship. If you push to have sex often and your partner becomes exhausted, physically sore or feels coherced- that can ruin a relationship. Does your horniness lead to problems in other areas of your life ? If you masturbate a lot & it goes against religious beliefs or if you feel guilty about it; that could leave you feeling spiritually compromised. Spending too much time either fantasizing about sex or engaged in some form of erotic activity can make you unproductive or neglectful in other areas of life. If you find that you are spending money on 1-900 numbers, adult videos and computer pornographically that can hit your wallet hard. If you use prostitues to satisfy your sex drive or you engage in any form of high risk sex; that can hurt your health. Thinking about sex can be a way to handle boredom. It can also help to distract you if things in your life are stressful. Too much of anything is just that: "too much". If your focus on sex is exclusive or it is negatively impacting you financially, legally, spiritually, socially or in regards to your health than that it is not balanced. If this was the case, consider sexaholics anonymous or seeing a therapist. We are sexual beings. So if you have a strong sex drive, but it causes you no problems, then it is likely not a problem. Take care. ...Read more
