Persistent genital arousal: problem, pathology or normative response?

Sandra Leiblum Ph.D.

To determine whether there are women who report persistent genital arousal as a normative aspect of their sexual response rather than as a pathological condition.  A comparison between all of the respondents to an on-line questionnaire survey on persistent genital arousal was conducted. Of the original sample of 388 women, 206 women endorsed all five criteria for diagnosis of persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD group) and 176 met some but not all criteria (non-PGAD group). The two groups were compared on all aspects of the condition, including onset, duration and severity of symptoms, feelings about the condition and overall sexual and relationship satisfaction. Additionally, a comparison of FSFI scores was made.
