O No!: The Constant Climax
What if your Big O was shifted into overdrive? Sometimes getting lucky isn’t lucky at all claim four women recently interviewed by ABC News. They all suffer from Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS), a disorder that was diagnosed only six years ago but has been affecting some women since birth. Like the Greek Myth about Sisyphus, the king forced to push a rock uphill for all eternity, these women feel the same burden from a constant “throbbing, pulsing, or tingling without the persons sexual desire,” as Dr. Irwin Goldstein describes it. Worst of all, even after they climax, there is no relief. “It works at the moment, but as soon as you stop, it’s right back there again,” one woman said. Since PSAS has only been recently identified, treatments are still being explored. Some women use an anti-depressant, some women fill a condom with ice, and some even go for electro-shock. While there is no cure yet, there is help through the PSAS Support Group.
