Woman Who Has 100 Orgasms a Day Sits on Frozen Peas to Try to Stop Them
One Woman's Pleasure Is This Woman's Pain
Did you stop reading our headline after "woman who has 100 orgasms a day"? Because while that might seem to be a very fortunate occurrence, New Jersey nurse Kim Ramsey says it's actually a very painful condition.
And it is an actual condition: Ramsey, 44, has been diagnosed with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (or PGAD, and yes, it's a real thing), which has caused her to have as many as 100 orgasms a day, she tells the U.K. Sun newspaper.
Any activity during her day can lead to an orgasm, Ramsey says, including driving a car, cleaning her house or the riding a train.
"Other women wonder how to have an orgasm -- I wonder how to stop mine, says British native Ramsey, whose case of PGAD, doctors believe, probably sparked about a decade ago after she fell down some stairs and suffered spinal cysts.
Ramsey says she first began having the orgasm problems in 2008, however, after having sex with a new boyfriend.
"I had constant orgasms for four days," she says. "I thought I was going mad … I even tried sitting on frozen peas."
Okay, yes, there are lots of easy jokes you could make about that one, but the incurable PGAD is really no laughing matter.

In other words, yes, it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
