Amanda Flowers says Wii Fit Turned Her Into a Sex Addict
A woman in the UK by the name of Amanda Flowers has been diagnosed by a doctor with persistent genital arousal disorder, or PGAD. It’s understood that the disorder came about after she fell off her Wii Fit balance board and damaged a nerve.
Amanda, who is a resident of Manchester, says that she has had sexual urges as many as 10 times a day ever since her fall. She even went to a doctor to confirm her diagnosis. She says that she started feeling a twinge down below before it surged through her body. Sometimes it builds up into a trembling orgasm, she added.
Dr. Sandra Leiblum, who created the term many years ago, says that PGAD is a persistent sexual arousal syndrome with intense feeling of genital congestion and sensation that typically doesn’t accompany any conscious awareness of desiring sex. This doctor is the former director of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Center for Sexual and Relationship Health, which is located in New Jersey, US.
Leiblum wrote in her Journal of Sexual Medicine that sexual activities that intend to relieve the symptoms can only reinforce the sensations or provide temporary relief at the least. She also says that the sensations can last for hours or days. They are truly intrusive and unwanted, she added.
This isn’t the first time that PGAD has come to the addition of the US, though it didn’t happen quite like this. It was featured on a 20/20 episode 2 years ago, while it was also seen in a Grey’s Anatomy episode.
