Hypersexuality is an abnormally heightened level of sexuality.
Nymphomania is the name of what was believed to be a psychological disorder peculiar to women characterized by an overactive libido and an obsession with sex. In men the disorder was called satyriasis (for etymology of the words, see nymph and satyr). As with all psychological disorders, it is only considered an illness if it is sufficient to prevent the sufferer from living a normal life.
As with many other things, sex drive varies widely, and what one person would consider a normal sex drive would be considered excessive by some, and low by others. However, a sex drive so strong that it prevents one living a normal life is excessive by any standards.
Nymphomania is no longer listed as a specific disorder in the DSM-IV, although hypersexuality in either sex can be viewed as a symptom of other disorders, such as bipolar disorder. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypersexuality [Aug 2004]
Slut is a pejorative slang term for a person who has a large appetite for sex, or gives the appearance of being more sexually accessible, active or demonstrative, than is sometimes deemed socially acceptable. To some it is an offensive term connoting someone (usually a woman, but can definitely be a man) who will do things for sex that others would not, such as illicit affairs or multiple partners.
Since the 1990s the term has also acquired an alternate non-pejorative meaning in some circles, originating within the polyamorous and non-monogamous lifestyle, signifying a self-description by a person who (in contrast to common restrictive and mixed beliefs about sex and sexuality) is accepting that sex, and the pleasure resulting from it, is "good for you" and enjoyable, and (within safe, sane and consensual limits) indulges in it as they wish. . --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slut [Dec 2005]
