This Man Has 100 Orgasms A Day

And that's much less of a good thing than you might think.

This is Dale Decker. He has 100 orgasms a day.

And he says it's ruining his life.

It all started in September 2012, when he slipped a disc in his back while getting out of his chair.

He apparently had five orgasms on his way to hospital, and they haven't stopped since. He's been left housebound by the condition.

Decker lives in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, with his wife and two sons.

"Imagine being on your knees at your father’s funeral beside his casket, saying goodbye to him, and then you have nine orgasms right there, while your whole family is standing behind you," he said, speaking to Barcroft Media. "It makes you never want to have another orgasm for as long as you live.

"There’s nothing pleasurable about it because even though it might feel physically good, you’re completely disgusted by what’s going on.”

He added: "If you’re in public, if you’re in front of kids – it’s disgusting and it can break you real fast."

"It happened to me at the grocery store, and when it was over there were around 150 people looking straight at me. Why would I leave the house when something like this can happen?"

His wife, April, is finding his condition just as difficult to cope with as he is. Decker has a near constant erection but the couple rarely have sex. She told Barcroft: "We really struggle right now as he is unable to work and supply for his family, and I feel like all the strain is on me. It’s really upsetting; we don’t do things that man and wife should do and we argue over things that should not be affecting us.

"Because he sometimes has episodes at night we took the decision to sleep in separate beds. That can be very frustrating. You want the comfort from another person, particularly your husband, but we don’t have that."

Dale is the first man to speak publicly about Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome.

Dr Dena Harris, a gynecologist who has mainly worked with women who suffer with PGAS, told Barcroft: "It’s clear Dale is really suffering, and I’m sure there are some people who will say that this is just in his head. But it’s not – it’s a serious medical condition and I just hope he gets the help he so desperately needs."

Harris added: "Being aroused can be a wonderful thing but this is not like arousal, it’s not even sexual. It’s a horrendous spasm and it can be terribly painful."

“Dale looks like he is in pain – not just emotionally but physically as well."
