    Cómo se dice Sexópata en inglés, una persona con manía por el sexo, y cualquier tipo de sexo, pervertido sexual..
    Asi como un psicopata es un enfermo mental, el sexópata es un enfermo sexual. Loco por el sexo.
    Thnx!

    Sex addict is the usual term I hear on the news.

    No por acá, al menos en términos correctos.

    Lo que tu describes es un adicto al sexo o, clinícamente, hipersexual.

    Sex adict. Hypersexual.

    Uhm.. What's the difference between "Sex Addict" & "Hypersexual"?

    The former is the layperson's term, and the latter is medical jargon.

    I'm not sure of the nuances of the Spanish here, but the original poster said "Cómo se dice sexópata en inglés, una persona con manía por el sexo, y cualquier tipo de sexo, pervertido sexual." Two ideas seem to be conflated here.

    una persona con manía por el sexo = sex addict
    cualquier tipo de sexo, pervertido sexual = sex pervert

    Here's an article (in Spanish) where they state they are not equivalent.

    This is not me. It's just for an English composition which I have to prepare.

    "writing" es con una sola "t".

    Ok.. thanks. Interesting article, althought I think addiction is a sickness.

    ¿Quiénes les llaman así? La palabra sexópata no está registrada en los diccionarios.

    En muchísimos lugares de latinoamérica.. Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Perú, etc, es super común decirlo así por alguien que es "adicto" y tiene una manía enferma por el sexo.
