The misunderstood pain of persistent genital arousal disorder
Many of us would think that feelings of arousal would always be welcome! And maybe we would even want more of it.
But for our guests on this episode, persistent genital arousal disorder has made life very difficult.
One woman copes with more than 100 orgasms a day, another searches for peace as her body is stimulated by emotions of all kinds, and another has undergone surgeries and treatments to find relief.
We also hear from one of the world experts on this rare condition on what we know about it, and what can be done to help.
