To enjoy a good sex life, a couple needs to have a good and honest communication between them. Disparity in libido may cause serious troubles in a relationship. The difference in sex drive can arise the feeling of rejection and doubt in partner’s mind or feelings. One partner with higher libido may consider the other unsupportive due to his/her disinterest in sex, whereas the other partner with lesser libido feels obliged to respond to the desire and expectation of the partner. It is usually men who have higher libido but sometime women get aroused without any problem.
When women get aroused without the aid of erotic thoughts and images, they are actually suffering from a rare disease called persistent sexualarousal syndrome, which can be amusing in the starting but later on it becomes a living nightmare for the couple. This desire and urge for sex is an unbearable syndrome, pushing the woman to complete misery. It is stressful and most sufferers have confessed the feeling of misery and desolation.
Traditionally women had lesser libido and this syndrome of higher urge was neglected. However, with increase in the number of women suffering from this disorder started receiving attention recently. While sitting or driving, a woman suffering from persistent sexualarousal syndrome can get aroused and may have an orgasm. For these women sitting down is also unbearable because the pressure causes an orgasm. This urge and orgasm can only be controlled when they are in an upright position. In this disease, an individual always remains in a state of high sexual arousal. This urge is only based on physical desire and is not connected with exciting, sexual or quixotic desires.
A survey on this syndrome reports that this disease isn’t prevalent among masses, and is limited only to a smaller part of the worldwide population. But it may increase with the time. This syndrome attacks any women belonging to any age group. An American World Wide Web-based study shows that women belonging to different backgrounds and varying ages are suffering from this syndrome. Numerous hypothesis and propositions have been put forward to clarify this disturbing phenomenon. Few of these are – an arteriovenous deformity that causes invariable and extreme blood flow to the clitoris; an irregularity in the peripheral or genital area and central or brain nervous system; taking or discontinuing certain medication prescribed by physicians.
Even with the advancement of science and medicine, there is no permanent cure for this disease. However, several studies and reports have stated that an improvement has been made by launching antidepressants, using vasopressin to lessen blood flow to the clitoris and also electro-convulsive treatment for patients who also endure severe depression. Many questions related to this disease are yet to be discovered. Many doctors and specialists have made a plea for more research on this syndrome, so they could identify its causes to ensure better treatment, and resolve different facets of female sexuality.
