ara Anaya is 30 years old and lives in Arizona with her husband and 10 year old son. She doesn't have hundreds of orgasms per day by choice, but rather because she suffers from Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD). This medical anomaly can make even the most mundane tasks extremely embarrassing - having orgasms while picking her son up from school or while buying groceries isn't uncommon for her. On bad days, the disorder has caused her to experience up to 90 orgasms per hour; on good days she can make it through the day with just 10 orgasms total.

Cara was diagnosed with PGAD nearly 4 years ago and finds it to be "embarrassing and confusing and humiliating". The condition came on abruptly - while she was in a grocery store. She was suddenly aroused by the smells in the air, everything in view and by everything she touched. She began to panic, falling to the ground and experiencing multiple orgasms.
Cara describes it as "one of the most intense orgasms I had ever had and it was with no assistance. I was frightened and confused, I just ran out of the store and as I drove home I kept orgasming. This was the first time and it was six hours of constant build up and orgasm with just seconds in between. I was terrified.”

Cara now avoids public places, has stopped working and prefers not to leave her home.

To her, the worst part about living with this condition, is that she's had to be less involved in her son's life. PGAD has not only affected her life, but that of her husband and son as well.

In her words, "imagine you can’t help out in class or go on school trips because the kids don’t understand, the parents don’t understand. It has devastated my involvement in my son’s life because I feel too dirty to be a part of it. We want him to be a normal kid but at the same time he can’t have friends around because mom has this condition." She also finds it difficult to help her son cope with the changes, stating: “the worst thing is I can't explain it to him because he’s too young."
“I have had to learn to control showing my arousal, remaining straight-faced, learning to breathe through it. It will build and build and build inside me and it’s overwhelming.”

Cara tried varies remedies with the hope of alleviating her discomfort, including ice packs, masturbation, cold showers, changing her diet and exercising more. She has also sought help from multiple doctors and specialists. As unfortunate as the condition and the emotional toll associated with it are, there are still no treatments and no cure.
“On a good day life goes on, a bad day it's disabling but I still have to pick up Merrick from school, be a wife to Tony and make the dinner. On [bad days] it's like the cookie monster on cookies.”

While having multiple orgasms a day may not sound all that bad, having hundreds of them sounds like it would be fairly exhausting. The condition brings a shame to it's victims while it alters their whole life and debilitates their body. In Cara's words: "As an illness it leaves me feeling incredibly lonely because nobody understands, and there is so little awareness of the condition. Right now I seek solace and advice in the online community but there just isn’t enough awareness out there. Even doctors don’t know a cure. I just want it to stop."
