Latest Research - Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS)

The latest research in PSAS by the Utrecht University and The Hague’s Haga Hospital has linked PSAS in women with restless legs and overactive bladder. Dr. Marcel Waldinger, Neuropsychiatrist, and his team, studied 18 Dutch women who reported PSAS and published their results in the international scientific Journal of Sexual Medicine. The Dutch study claims it is the largest research till date on PSAS.

All women who complained of PSAS were subject to in depth interviews and many medical examinations such as MRI scans of the pelvis and the brain. The study found that most women with PSAS, who participated in the study, also had restless legs, overactive bladder and pelvic varicosis.

Another study attempted to establish that PSAS is different from hypersexuality. The study compared Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) scores of women with persistent sexual arousal syndrome compared with published scores of women with female sexual arousal disorder (FSAD) and healthy controls.

The overall sexual functioning of women with PSAS who participated in the study was found to be within the normal range and was significantly better than that of women diagnosed with Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD).

The research concluded that there was no evidence to believe that women who meet the criteria for a diagnosis of PSAS are hypersexual.

A study released in November 2007 found that Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome can lead to various other psychological problems such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Hello nice post.
Thanks for the amusing post... According to the Male Aging Study, a little over half of men experience erectile dysfunction [ED].Erectile dysfunction - a man's inability to maintain an erection for sex - has numerous psychological and physical causes. Sexual dysfunction refers to a problem occurring during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity. Sexual dysfunction can affect any age.

It started with me when I was a teenager around 13 yrs ago. As everyone thought that may be it's a teenage phase and it will become normal with the age. However for past 13 yes instead of subsiding it is just become even more pronounced and intense.I remember I would just lock myself in a room and just weep and pray all the time.Gradually after years of such futile exercises I had just resigned to my fate.I really don't wanna with is PSAS for my whole. I can't tell about this to anyone at he for fear of embarrassment not even to my friends.I really sick and tired of this.Through my deep observation I have found that in my vase there is point in brain close to medula oblongetta that becomes unduly excited and starts sending down Sensations all across genitals.Some times I would be feeling need to have sex multiple times. Its like if I don't release it then I might just explode out of sheer pressure. I some times feel that marriage might not be as feasible option for me to try as where my spouse unable to understand would just brand me a sex addict or sex fiend and will just divorse me.I don't feel that I m ready to live a double life. I guess the onlyboption for me is to find someone like myself who would understand me and sympathize with me instead of just mocking me rather than just lead a traumatic sex crazy life. After all I don't wanna live and grow old alone ,lonely and sad

Hey Sammy, you needn't feel so miserable about yourself. There are numerous young men in the world who are going through the same phase. With time, this problem hopefully would disappear.

This just recently started a week ago. Ever since then I have had the tingling and sensations spoken about. The first time was the worst. I felt the need to masterbate because I am alone. I did and stopped and asked God to forgive me that I will never do it again. But I sufered all night until I assed out. I had an orgasm every 2 to 3 seconds from around 2 am until I passed out. It be stopped, and I could hardly walk. I tried ice packs that stimulated me more. trying to hold it with my hand didn't work. I can't tell you how many orgasms I had. Has anyone of an adult, church going age questioned familiar spirits. I noticed a few christian comments. Gallatians 5 does talk about this. I could be more specific, but I a fact finding now. Some of these men have abilities that control women in this manner.

Today I was doing hands off masturbation wherw o would ty to have an ogasm and I kept sayong my hole is innocent...evenutally while while I was trying to orgasm I felt this odd feeling it was uncomfortable..and then I startes having pain.. Eventually I thought maybe irs blue balls for I letmy vagina move and do its thing.I felt some relief but the pressurw feeling and almosy unctontrollable feelings coontinued...I rubbed my clitoris to orgasm too using the excuse that maybe it qould take the feeling away I remember I believe it wws "God" saying "vaginal discomfort" ci ncerning my masturbation.... so I gueas thia was what He wss talking about..I heard it can be caused by exxessive masturbation... People should be warned about this..I've been upset and now could care less about sex..I just pray thw feelibg wi permantly go awat
