The topic of this blog could make you go, “What? There’s no such thing. Orgasms are always desired. Maybe uncontrollable but who’s complaining”. Well the women who suffer from the rare disease, PGAD, which means Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder are complaining.
When I first read this I thought it was a joke. I am sorry because from reading about it, it’s definitely not a laughing matter. It might appeal to the voyeur in you but to those suffering from PGAD, there’s nothing sexy about it.
Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder or PGAD, is an ailment that affects women. They suffer spontaneous, persistent and uncontrollable genital arousal with or without orgasm. Failure to relieve the symptoms usually results in spontaneous orgasms, so it is not uncommon for a woman to engage in frequent masturbations. These can occur in buses, hair salon, while shopping, work, etc. so imagine that for a while. It is of course painful and in many cases, sufferers end up forgoing sexual relationships. This affect the ability to carry on a loving relationship.
I first came across this story about a week or so ago when I read about a woman who committed suicide after a prolong fight with PGAD. Read her story here. There are many more like her and their stories are no less sobering.
Who would have thought that a story about women having orgasms and having a vibrator for a bff could be so grim?
