While some women dream of having an orgasm, the woman who uncontrollably had 50 orgasms a day has apparently committed suicide after years of her debilitating affliction.
Gretchen Molannen, 39, was found dead in her Spring Hill, Florida home over the weekend in what is an apparent suicide.
She had suffered from persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) for more than fifteen years.
The condition causes physical arousal without mental arousal at all hours of the day and night, causing Molannen to have up to 50 orgasm a day.
The Hernando County Sheriff’s office responded to a suicide call on Saturday night and two of Molannen’s friends confirmed it.
Molannen had previously made headlines due to her condition.
“I had such a different life before this thing, this beast, took over,” she said in November.
Molannen began feeling the sensation when she was 23, describing that it was like a switch she couldn’t turn off.
“I used to love life. But this has destroyed it. This isn’t living. What’s the point? I think about suicide all the time,” she said.
One of the only ways for her to escape the terror of the condition was to masturbate for hours on end, which brought shame and embarrassment to herself.
Her distress over the condition made her attempt suicide three times in the past year.
“I know that God wants more out of my life than having me testing out suicide methods, constantly crying and abusing myself,” she said.
Her worst day, she said, was when she had 50 uncontrolled orgasms in a row.
“It made me think I was going to die,” she told the newspaper. “That was the worst day.”
It is unclear how many women suffer from the disease, but experts estimate it to be in the thousands.
There is no cure in sight for this condition.
