An Arizona woman is speaking out about a rare condition that causes her to have around 180 orgasms per day.
Cara Anaya, 30, was diagnosed with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder three years ago and suffers daily from debilitating orgasms at the most uncomfortable times. Anaya says that she will frequently get orgasms in the grocery store and other public places, and when it happens when she’s with her child, it’s especially uncomfortable.
“It is embarrassing and confusing and humiliating,” Anaya said. “When you are around children you feel like a pervert because you have all these really strong feelings rushing through your body at the same time. It has devastated my involvement in my son’s life because I feel too dirty to be a part of it.”
Due to the nature of the disorder, Anaya is unable to know when she will have an orgasm and now spends much of her time indoors away from other people.
“It will build and build and build inside me and it’s overwhelming,” said Anaya. “It makes me giggle because of the momentary high, and outwardly I look okay, but inwardly it’s a torture.”
Anaya and her husband reportedly still continue to have sex, but she says it is more frustrating than anything because she’s constantly aroused. Her disorder has caused her to lose friends and makes her feel like an outsider in most areas of her life.
“I have had remarks made to me by men when out for drinks with my friends who have become too excited about my condition,” she admitted. “They have watched on and found it amusing, I have had to leave because I feel uncomfortable. I have lost friends who have claimed I’m faking it and my parents found it hard to come to terms with but they have been there for me. To outsiders it might sound wonderful, but it is unfulfilling and shameful. I’d do anything to find a cure.”
Anaya says she is unable to return to work because her illness makes it impossible to function properly.
