Orgasms

A Wisconsin father of two suffering with the rare Persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS) reportedly experiences 100 unwanted orgasms every day.

PSAS, also known as the Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD), is a condition that causes persistent and spontaneous orgasms.

The orgasms are not related to any self-driven feelings of sexual arousal or physical stimulus.

Dale Decker, 37, says in a Barcroft TV documentary:

"There's nothing pleasurable about it, because even though it might physically feel good, the whole time inside your mind, you're completely disgusted by what's going on. Depending on where you're at, if you're in public, if you're in front of kids, if you're around strangers, I mean it can make a person break real fast."

Decker has been carrying the ailment since 2012, when he fell and slipped a disk in his back. The condition was triggered from then onwards for unknown reasons.

On the way to the hospital, he suffered five unwanted orgasms and the trend has continued ever since.

Out of social fear, Decker has been housebound and not been able to work since the accident.

"When you're on your knees at your father's funeral at his casket, and you're saying goodbye to him, and then you have nine orgasms right there while your whole family is standing behind you, you never want to have another orgasm as long as you live. But you know what? They just keep on coming."

Decker is the first man to ever speak publicly about the PSAS condition.

"They happen when I'm awake, when I'm asleep, when I'm in the shower," said Decker.

Medical insight

Since the condition is rare, most doctors can't diagnose it.

Dr Dena Harris, a gynaecologist says, "It's very brave for Dale to come out in the open. PSAS is not necessarily sexual and they have no idea when it is going to happen and how often, and it can lead to intense suffering. He's got a real medical problem. There are doctors that can help him."

Diane London, a sex therapist Decker consulted with says, "I have never seen anything like this. There are no words. This makes me want to find him some relief. It's a horrible way for him to live."

Decker's wife says the couple has several arguments, before breaking down and saying, "it shouldn't be argued about. We already struggle right now, he can't work so I feel stressed from that."

The condition has taken a toll on Decker's relationship with his children as well.

"He doesn't go to practises because he feels embarrassed and the kids don't know about his condition so they don't quite understand why," says his wife.

There are more reasons besides the threat of the spontaneous orgasms that keeps Decker housebound.

"Sometimes I have an erection for 3 to 4 hours at a time. It is possible to have sex with my wife but we don't very often because it becomes frustrating, for me there's no end. It's destroying every part of every thing in my life."
