Orgasms are great, right? For most of us, if we’re lucky enough to have one, it lasts for a few blissful seconds. But for one couple, a climax can last hours.
18 hours to be precise.
What’s more they don’t need to be having sex to have their super orgasm!
Scott and Melanie McClure from Texas appeared on ‘This Morning’ yesterday to explain that they can both reach climax through everything from hugging and dancing, to just breathing.
The couple have been together for nine years, and put the reason for their super long orgasms down to tantric sex – which means they don’t actually have to be touching to climax. Amazing!
“We are practicing tantra,” Scott told Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield. “One of the key things that people don’t realise is that orgasm is different from the traditional release of climax.”
“You can have an experience when you keep going. It builds and builds and builds. You stay in a state. You can have a blissful orgasm without the traditional release. It takes years of practise.”
Scott and Melanie went on to explain they use each other’s energy to climax, and can do it fully clothed. They don’t even have to be in the same room!
“It’s much more wonderful and intense and it’s a full body experience. You have to be connected with your feelings. With tantra you experience all the emotions in love-making. It’s a spiritual practise as well as an orgasmic one,” Scott explained.
But while there’s no denying this all sounds pretty darned fantastic, there can be a downside to spending the best part of your day in an orgasmic state.
In fact there’s a medical name for it. Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD), is a little known or understood disorder which was only officially recognised in the medical world in 2001.
“Sufferers” experience continuous sexual arousal and can have tens or even hundreds of orgasms a day.
Which actually isn’t quite as fun as it sounds.
Sufferers of PGAD, a little known or understood disorder only officially recognised in the medical world in 2001, experience continuous sexual arousal and can have tens and even hundreds of orgasms a day.
Just ask Amanda Gryce. Gryce has suffered from the condition since the age of six. It causes her to be in a permanent state of sexual arousal and uncontrollably orgasm up to 50 times a day. Even the slighted vibration (like the movement of a car) can set her off.
“Instead of being a beautiful thing like it’s supposed to be, it would start becoming more of a nuisance,” she told Barcroft TV.
“Pleasure is supposed to be a good thing, but when you have it for too long, it’s like eating a lot of candy — something that’s really good and makes you happy, but then you start getting sick from it, because you’ve had too much.”
Holly and Phil have had a whole host of interesting guests gracing the sofa this week. On Tuesday they interviewed the 9-year-old drag queen, whose mother received a backlash for letting her son take up a female alter ego from the age of seven.
