I can’t help but think about the number of times I’ve faked a moment of climax to keep my partner from thinking he had not performed well in bed, and by contrast having multiple peaks with a great partner. But, I could never imagine experiencing an climax that never stops.
In Seattle, a woman had a three hour climax that eventually sent her to the emergency room for help. A woman identified only as Liz appeared on TLC’s new reality series “s*x Sent Me to the ER” to tell her story.
She and her partner Eric had engaged in intimacy, but long after he had jumped out of bed to get ready for work, she continued to have a strong climax and was unable to get out of bed. After about an hour of the continuous pleasure peaks, Liz began to panic and called numerous medical professionals for advice on what to do to stop the climax.
Liz tried jumping up and down, drinking red wine and even taking antihistimines to end the climax. ‘I started hopping up and down to see if that would do anything,’ Liz said. ’I started trying to drink wine to see if that would calm down my system. I tried just about every possible thing I could do to stop having an o****m.’
Finally, she asked Eric to take her to the emergency room as most of the medical professionals had suggested. After struggling to get her dressed, Eric eventually just wrapped her in a robe and drove her to the hospital. Medical staff initially thought she was in labor with all the panting and moaning she was doing.
Eric recalled, ‘As much of a relief as it was to have her in the hospital, now there were eyes on me and I was still feeling very tense and uptight and uncertain about what was going on and what was going to happen.’
Liz’s climax lasted for another hour while in the emergency room. After three hours the climax finally ended, not because of anything the doctors had done, but it appears that the antihistimines she had taken previously finally kicked in. Doctors believe it was a drug interaction that caused the three hour climax.
She continued to experience the onset of long pleasure peaks after the incident and is now being treated with bipolar medications to curb the uncontrollable, never-ending peaks. Because of the frequent and lengthy climatic episodes, Liz was forced to leave her job until doctors were able to find a treatment that worked.
The TLC reality show highlights 6 couples and their intimate escapades gone wrong. I was able to watch it last night and it was quite an interesting show with re-enactments of each incident. All were embarrassing moments for the couples, but hopefully sharing these stories will help someone else.
