ComicBookGuy: She tried to file for disability twice, and was twice denied.

Classy.


Well, this isn't a common enough or sympathized-enough-with thing that anyone's actually going to provide useful help, or in some cases even think it's a problem in the first place. Every time someone does a story on this, the inevitable response is everyone going complete and total Beavis and Butthead over it and guy after guy going 'well, hell, let ME handle that problem'. Which is exactly the wrong thing to say. You have what is really a debilitating physical condition, which doesn't actually have a cure yet, and you can't even tell anyone because odds are people are going to make you out as some sort of nymphomaniac solely because of where on your body the condition is based.

Let's put it this way. Try and tickle yourself. You won't feel anything. Someone else tickles you, and you have a reaction. Why? Because your laughing is actually a signal your body's giving off asking for the tickling to stop. You can start and stop tickling yourself whenever you want, and your brain anticipates that, but you can't control when someone else tickles you. You get the same sensation when a spider's crawling up your leg, but you freak out then. It's something of an evolutionary holdover.

Same basic principle here. When you want to have sex, orgasm's all good and fun. But when you're not looking for sex, and you're drifting into orgasm anyway, it stops being so fun. Women orgasm during rape, after all. And when you're not looking for sex, but your body is demanding orgasm after orgasm after orgasm after orgasm, it's akin to being repeatedly, incessantly, eternally raped by your own body. That is basically what this is.

I mean, it's sad, but is that unexpected?


It's not a mental disorder. She was constantly physically but not psychologically aroused. Imagine having a boner for no reason. Now imagine that you've had it for over a decade.

yourmomlovestetris: I briefly had PGAD symptoms when my fibromyalgia wa making my pudenal nerve go crazy. I can tell you it's no farking fun whatsoever. Imagine your genitalia engorged and sore, plus the feeling that you're having a raging bladder infection on top of that. Sex and masturbation are an exercise in screaming pain. Oh, and you continuously have orgasms you can't control every time you shift your weight in your seat, move your legs slightly, etc. And you CAN'T TURN IT OFF. If you're extremely lucky, it might go away by itself, but if I were like this woman and had to put up with it for 16 years, I could totally see eating a shotgun.

And I'm not all that religious so this condition totally had nothing to do with some church telling me that touching myself was a no-no.

I hope those who are making light of this condition never have a daughter or female relative who has to live with it.


I have to wonder though, if someone with this condition were willing to go to the other extreme and have no sensation at ALL, would it not be possible for them to get some appropriate nerve just snipped?

Or barring that, can they do a long term nerve block? I know people are able to get some fairly long-term spinal anesthesia and whatever.

wildsnowllama: NightOwl2255: She came and went.

No farking way. Simulpost! *internet high five*


You know, this is totally unrelated to this thread, but I believe that you are mistaken. You see, a simulpost means to post at the same time, yet your posts are 14 seconds apart.

You did, however, post almost the same thing back to back.

We shall refer to this as a similpost.

Perhaps I am not understanding how this was different then what a teenage boy goes through? Hell, who am I kidding, wasn't till my late 20's that this sort of event 'started' to be under control. You learn to live with it. Big farking deal.

And excuse me for being unsympathetic, but I'll take 50 uncontrolled orgasms vs a surprise tent pitchen' while standing in front of others, any day of the week.

Fifty orgasms in a row? Over what time span? I mean, my gf had 87 in an hour one time. (Yes we were counting...) I think she is planning on having my tongue bronzed when I die.

I am laughing at many of these posts...because....well they are funny.

But now, seriously. WHERE THE HELL WAS HER FAMILY? FRIENDS?

Didn't anyone give enough of a damn to watch after her?

Happy god-damned holidays. Sad.

She had to play with herself for hours a day and was not able to hold a job.

She could have made a fortune with a webcam or charged people to assist in helping her get relief.

That's still a mental disorder unless you have some details left out of TFA.


Anytime a person kills themselves they obviously aren't in their right mind, but it would still be mental illness instead of a mental disorder. Like temporary insanity. Her situation would be comparable to a person killing themselves because of endless pain rather than being dumped by a chick.

It's a neurological disorder. Not mental. There is no DSM-IV calssification. The syndrome is a physical response.

Another casualty of religious shame.
PFTFA
She only relaxed after hours of masterbation which made her feel ashamed because of her being brought up Lutheran.


If she could have gotten rid of her faith and bought a rabbit, she probably could have lived a semi normal life.

Echoing some other farkers upthread, after having gone through my teenage years already, I know exactly what that is like.

/she should have just gotten married. I've heard that's the best cure for an overly aroused woman.
