For most women, shopping in the market or vacuuming and routine tasks are boring, but this British woman these are awkward and peculiar forms of pleasure.
At age 30, Zara Richardson, suffers from a condition called Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome, which causes her to reach up to 500 orgasms daily.
“People think I should be ecstatic, but having constant orgasms is ruining my life. I have no control over how my body feels and it affects every aspect of my life,” she said.
According to Zara, the episodes usually happen after common situations, such as climbing stairs, when someone sits next to her on the couch or even when the phone vibrates in her pocket. “Sometimes I’m standing in line at the supermarket and I get the syndrome, but there is nothing I can do to prevent it. Train journeys are a nightmare because they can trigger an attack.”
She was diagnosed with the disease in 2010, when it ceased to feel satisfied after sex and began to notice changes in her behavior. After two months with the problem, she decided to see a doctor. “I knew I had to tell my doctor, but the idea of confessing that I could not stop having orgasms was terrifying. I thought the doctor would laugh at me or that I was a nymphomaniac,” she explained.
Since then, Zara has filed for divorce and began treatment with antidepressants, analgesics, anti-inflammatory and hot and cold compresses to stop the orgasms. “I want my body back to having a normal sex life. It destroyed my life. It’s a nightmare.”
