Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)

Updated: DECEMBER 24, 2018

Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) refers to a sexual disorder where an individual experiences spontaneous and uncontrollable sexual arousal. The arousal is often unrelated to any sexual feeling or sexual desire. PGAD was formerly known as persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS), and is also known as Weiss disease or restless genital syndrome (ReGS / RGS).


More About Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)

Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) is characterized by a persistent genital arousal or genital engorgement that occurs with or without orgasm. Symptoms include genital engorgement for extended periods of time and spontaneous orgasms. The syndrome is generally used to describe the symptoms in women. The term priapism is used as the male counterpart. Since the arousal is unrelated to sexual desire or arousal, the syndrome differs from nymphomania or hyper sexuality. For many who experience the symptoms of the disorder, it can be very painful with only mild relief through orgasm.
