Biological conflicts: sexual conflict and territorial loss conflict, experienced by a female. In this case, the territorial loss conflict has also a sexual aspect, for example, the loss of a (potential) sexual mate or the (emotional) loss of a male due to sexual abuse. NOTE: A woman in a Nympho Constellation is at the same time in a Postmortal Constellation.

Brain and Organ Level: The corresponding brain relays are the control centers of the cervix/coronary veins (left temporal lobe) and coronary arteries (right temporal lobe), located opposite each other in the cerebral cortex.

Once the second conflict occurs, the female is in constellation and manic-depressive (compare with primary mania and primary depression). Whether the manic or depressed mood is dominant is determined by which of the two conflicts is stronger. The constellation can be permanent or recurring due to tracks or conflict relapses.

The Nympho Constellation manifests itself as a compulsion to seduce men. The biological purpose of the constellation is to force a woman who has lost a sexual mate or has been sexually rejected to pursue men in order to secure procreation (compare with Casanova Constellation related to males). “Nymphos” and “Casanovas” therefore magnetically attract each other.

A woman with a Nympho Constellation has a compulsive need for male attention. She comes across as sexy (sexy outfit, sexy walk) and acts flirtatiously. Depending on the intensity of the constellation, her behavior ranges from explicit advances to more refined ways of seducing a man. While the manic Nympho (male type) makes herself actively available to men, the depressed Nympho (female type) tries to tempt a man in a more subtle manner. Taking into account the hormone status, the nympho-depressive has a stronger sex drive since her estrogen level is considerably higher. However, both women are hypersexual and tend to be promiscuous. With a maturity stop, a Nympho is compelled to arouse and ignite a man but she only wants to cuddle or, put another way, she wants to be desired but doesn’t want to have sex. If a woman in a Nympho Constellation is unable to attract a mate, the Postmortal Constellation becomes dominant. Now she is preoccupied with thoughts about death rather than sex.  

Like with a Casanova Constellation, a strong constellation can lead to excessive sexual behaviors such as obsessive sexual fantasies, an addiction to pornography, compulsive masturbation, and an uncontrollable sexual desire. Sexual conflicts experienced in childhood or adolescence (sexual abuse, exposure to sexual content, early sexualization) can set the stage for a hypersexual behavior in adulthood.

In the 1800s, the medical treatments for overly sexual women included removal of the clitoris, leeching of the vagina, and cold baths. In today’s psychiatry, hypersexuality is considered a symptom in connection with “bipolar disorders”. In 2010, it was proposed to be included in the DSM-5. Women who don’t desire sex are also at risk of receiving a psychiatric diagnosis. The DSM-5 describes “female sexual arousal disorder” and “inhibited female orgasm” as diagnoses for sexually unresponsive women.
