33 year old male and always horny/thinking about sex!

This has kinda peaked my curiosity for a while, so I figured I'd ask in a forum.

I'm a 33 Y/0 male. I have been married for almost 8 years and have a great sex life. My wife and I have sex at least 3-4 times a week, if not more (and that is even after having 2 kids within the last 3 years). We aren't very boring when it comes to sex either. We have fun.

So, pretty much for about the past year, I think about sex 24/7. Outside of family time and my school work, it seems that sex is all I think about these days. At work, lifting weights at the gym, even in church! And I am not fantasizing about other women, It's always things with my wife.

I know this isn't really a problem, but getting a very noticable erection at work that I can't get to go away isn't fun. (I'm not massive, but it isn't hideable, honestly)

Why all of a sudden in my early 30's am I thinking about sex more than in my 20's? I serisously think about it non stop.

I'm not complaining, just asking out of curiosity!

Can you think of anything that's changed in the last year for you? Has anything changed with your health? At your last physical, were there any changes from previous years?

Have there been changes in your stress levels? Living conditions? Do you feel differently about yourself than you did in your twenties? Some people feel more comfortable and confident in their thirties.

All of these things would be good places to explore about what's changed. Everyone is different but there are a number of reasons why your sexual desire might have shifted.

I can't answer your question about why you're thinking about sex more now, but I have a suggestion that might help for erections you're getting at work. When my husband and I are having sex and he gets super sensitive, he does math equations in his head. It's not what you want to think about during sex, but it diverts the sensitivity when he focuses on something else. Perhaps if you focus on a certain subject, your arousal would decrease and your erection would go down.
