Constantly Aroused? You Might Be Suffering From PSAS

Feeling aroused is a wonderful and welcomed feeling, especially when it happens with someone you're about to get it on with, but for some women, being aroused for hours, days, or even weeks is more of a condition than a blessing. This disorder is known as persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS) or persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD). Check out this clip from Grey's Anatomy to see what I mean.

To hear more about this condition,


This unique syndrome is not a result of being an extremely sexual person, and it's usually unrelated to sexual desire. PSAS is a fairly new condition, only identified in 2001, and women that have it can experience hundreds of spontaneous orgasms a day, either with sex or without, but the feeling of arousal never subsides. It can be triggered by vibrations from a plane or a car, or it can have no trigger at all. Women experience a range of feelings from tingling, to throbbing, to full-on intense When Harry Met Sally outbursts. Most women think it's unbearable, but unfortunately, since not much is known about what causes this condition, there's no known cure for it. Have any of you ever known someone with this disorder?
