ADDults Only

Presented by Kate Kelly.

(Presented with Paul Ravenscraft)

Believe it or not, many of the highly creative people in our community have ADD. For those of us with Attention Deficit Disorder, ADD has a way of following us around: into the classroom, the conference room, or the waiting room. Or…sometimes…into the bedroom. We will look at how hyperactive-ADD traits (energy, wildness) can boost sexual attraction, and frustrate intimacy. We will review how ADD symptoms, such as impulsivity (the "oops!" factor); distractibility ("Why am I thinking about the grocery list NOW?"); or time mismanagement, can play out in this arena. We will explore how some with ADD respond differently to sights, sounds, and tactile sensations, and how this can make a difference. We delve into related issues like sex addiction, cultural inconsistency, and the sometime impact of medication on sexual desire or sexual performance.
