If spontaneous orgasms sound to you like a blessing, Dale Decker will make you think twice about that. Or, he'll convince you that having spontaneous orgasms would be one of the least desirable physical ailments a person could have, which admittedly is where I fall after listening to Decker describe his experience with persistent sexual arousal syndrome, or PSAS.

After slipping a disc in his back several years ago, Decker, who lives in Wisconsin, immediately developed the condition that causes him to orgasm more than 100 times per day, often several times in a row. He told Barcroft TV that he experienced his first five spontaneous orgasms in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, and they haven't stopped since.

"There's nothing pleasurable about it," 37-year-old Decker said. "Even though it might physically feel good, the whole time inside your mind you're completely disgusted by what's going on. Depending on where you're at -- if you're in public, if you're around kids, if you're around strangers -- it can make a person break real fast."

Bancroft TV reports that Decker is the first person to speak publicly about battling the condition, but that PSAS is relatively widely accepted in the medical community. Previously, it was thought to be a disorder that primarily affected women, but the challenges it poses for men have come to light as well. And, as Decker points out, they are challenging indeed.

"Imagine being on your knees at your father's funeral beside his casket, and you're saying goodbye to him, and then you have nine orgasms right there," he said. "You're whole family is standing behind you. It makes you never want to have an orgasm ever again."
