"Excessive" viewing of visual sexual stimuli (VSS) is the most commonly reported hypersexual behavior problem and is especially amenable to laboratory study. A pattern of enhanced sexual cue responsiveness is expected in this sample if hypersexuality shares features of other addiction models. Participants (N=122) who either reported or denied problematic VSS use were presented with emotional, including explicit sexual, images while their evoked response potentials were recorded. An interaction… Expand
The Impact of Negative Mood on Event-Related Potentials When Viewing Pornographic Pictures
TLDR
Investigation of neural correlates of negative affect-induced alterations in sexual cue reactivity in healthy men suggested that higher levels of solitary sexual motivation may enhance motivated attention toward sexual stimuli among men receiving negative performance feedback. Expand
Sexual Responsivity and the Effects of Negative Mood on Sexual Arousal in Hypersexual Men Who Have Sex With Men (MSM).
TLDR
No differences were found in genital response between hypersexual and non-hypersexual men, and the 2 groups did not differ in subjective sexual arousal, suggesting that hypersexual MSM may benefit more from an exploration of motivational and behavioral mechanisms underlying possible links between (negative) mood and sexual behavior.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that based on a plethora of scientific support hypersexual activity is indeed like drugs, food, and music that activate brain mesolimbic reward circuitry that affect both hedonic and anhedonic behavioral outcomes. Expand

No Evidence of Emotion Dysregulation in “Hypersexuals” Reporting Their Emotions to a Sexual Film
People who report distress due to their frequent use of visual sexual stimuli (VSS) may experience primarily negative affect, primarily positive affect, or coactivation of positive and negativeExpand
Sexual desire, not hypersexuality, predicts self-regulation of sexual arousal
TLDR
Higher levels of desire for sex with a partner consistently predicted failures to downregulate sexual arousal, and a new measure of hypersexuality was unrelated. Expand
Sexual desire, not hypersexuality, is related to neurophysiological responses elicited by sexual images
Background Modulation of sexual desires is, in some cases, necessary to avoid inappropriate or illegal sexual behavior (downregulation of sexual desire) or to engage with a romantic partnerExpand
Appetitive Responses to Sexual Stimuli Are Attenuated in Individuals with Low Levels of Sexual Desire
TLDR
The results indicated that ASR was attenuated after exposure to appetitive stimuli to a greater extent among participants with higher levels of sexual desire, and PPI was inversely associated with subjective ratings across stimuli such that greater subjective levels of desire were correlated with lower levels of PPI.

Self-Reported Differences on Measures of Executive Function and Hypersexual Behavior in a Patient and Community Sample of Men
TLDR
Preliminary evidence supporting the hypothesis that executive dysfunction may be implicated in hypersexual behavior is provided. Expand
Attention and Emotional Responses to Sexual Stimuli and Their Relationship to Sexual Desire
TLDR
The results suggest that the amount of attention captured by sexual stimuli is a stronger predictor of a person’s sexual desire level than the valence of the emotional responses elicited by such stimuli. Expand
Individual Differences in Nucleus Accumbens Activity to Food and Sexual Images Predict Weight Gain and Sexual Behavior
TLDR
It is suggested that heightened reward responsivity in the brain to food and sexual cues is associated with indulgence in overeating and sexual activity, respectively, and evidence for a common neural mechanism associated with appetitive behaviors is provided. Expand
A surprising finding related to executive control in a patient sample of hypersexual men.
TLDR
The results contradict a previous finding of executive deficits among hypersexual men measured by self-report and suggest that this population may exhibit domain-specific aspects of impulsivity, poor judgment, and risky behavior that are not generalizable to other domains of life. Expand
