HORNY??? 24/7? I'm 16, female and I don't know, I just can't get sexual thoughts out of my head and I'm really ..... not worried, but just. I don't know I suppose it's a part of puberty and whatever, but when does it go away (Okay, so it's hard to pinpoint it and dfferent for everyone)? I mean, being so intense? It kind of interferes with other things. First post rawr

I really can't say when these feelings "go away," mostly because for most people, they don't. The intensity can tend to get turned down a notch over time, though, probably less because of puberty (hormones from puberty play a lot smaller part in this than most people imagine), and more because you have the time to get used to those feelings, we learn to incorporate them in our lives, we are often able to express them more and ground them more, and other parts of our lives can get more high-key.
Are you masturbating? Like I said, expressing those feelings, enacting some of those desires, does tend to make a big difference.
But having sexual desires ultimately isn't about puberty so much as humanity. Most people have these feelings, and there's nothing at all unusual about them or about them being intense.
