Cool, I looked into this before but focused more on sexual addiction I think. From what I read before, this is being considered for the DSM 5. I think it would describe a lot of what's going on now and address people who don't necessarily have "sex addiction" but are not enjoying their high sex drives and are suffering from consequences of that (multiple sex partners, unhappiness, relationship issues, etc). Also, the current DSM doesn't even acknowledge sex addiction as a separate disorder, and I think this is a broader way to do that. Someone with sex addiction probably falls under the category of hypersexuality anyway.

I also think this could definitely be linked to depression. I bet if you looked at the cases of women and even men who have "hypersexuality," most of them probably have depression. I can actually speak from experience.
