A new female sexual dysfunction: the persistent sexual arousal disorder (PSAD) - In 2002 S. Leiblum describes and documents a new female sexual dysfunction, called Persistent Sexual Arousal Disorder (PSAD). The dysfunction is characterized by an excitement that persists for prolonged periods, such as hours, days or weeks. The excitement is not linked to sexual desire and may also be triggered by non sexual stimuli, as mere vibrations; moreover it cannot find a way out in an orgasm, which often proves unsatisfactory. Causes that may contribute to increase female sexual activity, be it egosyntonic or egodistonic, pleasant or disturbing for the couple, are still not appropriately investigated (Leiblum, Graziottin, 2007).
Keywords: Female sexuality, Persistent Sexual Arousal Disorder (PSAD), personal distress, hypersexuality, sexual dysfunction, integrated approach.
