“Because of an illness, I’m sexually aroused 24 hours a day”
Since the age of 13, her daily life, she says, has become a real hell. Amanda McLaughlin, 23, suffers from persistent genital arousal syndrome (PEME). A disorder that results in a sensation of genital and clitoral excitement that can last several days in a row and this in the absence of any sexual desire or stimulation.
In short, sensations close to those that are felt before orgasm, but last hours, and that an orgasm can only relieve briefly. Symptoms that could lend smile or fantasize. But for women who are affected, the pains and discomforts are such that some of them come to commit suicide.
