Wii Fit: Helpful, Harmful, or Foreplay?

Portions of this post are adult in nature. If you are below the age of consent in your state, country, or region, go do something else for a while.

I don’t have a Wii Fit, and I hadn’t really considered getting one. Until now.

Amanda Flowers, a 24-year-old from Manchester, claims that a Wii Fit injury has turned her into a sex addict.
After falling from her Wii Fit board, Flowers reports that even minor vibrations–such as from a food processor, she says– “turns her on.” She was told by a doctor that she had suffered a damaged nerve that has provoked “persistent sexual arousal syndrome.”

“It began as a twinge down below before surging through my body. Sometimes it built up into a trembling orgasm,” Flowers says, according to the Daily Star’s article “Nintendo Wii Made Me Nympho.”

Read the rest on The Huffington Post including a link to some videos of other Wii accidents. Fortunately (or not, depending on your kink), no videos of the aforementioned accident or its aftermath.

Well now. That certainly puts a different light on the Wii Fit, doesn’t it?

And that’s all I’m going to say about that.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to say about anything today. I’ve just completed a hilly ten-mile bike ride (sad to say, my longest of the spring, so far), and I’m headed for the comfort of my sofa. My DVD player might not be as–ahem!–exciting as a Wii Fit, but it’s all I have.

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! I’m back on Monday with a great book review! (Um, the book is great. Not sure how the review will turn out.)

  1. That's the funniest thing I've ever heard! Maybe I need to get a Wii of my own 😉

    Thank you for your comment. I replied to it but of course you may not read it so in short, I'll say that I've been leaning towards the NC direction but, do have friends in Arizona. The research continues :)
    (you being nearby may be good incentive too!)

  2. I just finished reading a book you had reviewed…"A Life Worth Breathing"….I loved it and passed it along to my yoga teacher. She is savoring it as well!

  3. I just don't even know what to say about that Cammy! Glad you had a nice bike ride!

  4. That is hilarious! I would really love to know how she managed that one. Too funny. I love my Wii Fit+, but I swear it's not for this reason. :)

  5. lol! i have never heard anything like that before. sssshhhh… don't tell my husband or he will want me to get on there! 😉

    great job with the 10-miler!

  6. And my husband just asked if I had read this post yet! I actually have thought about getting a Wii for my birthday since I hear so many women who love it. And I figure my boys would get a kick out of the role reversal of THEM buying ME the video game:)

  7. Hi, my name is Johanna Vante and I suffer from PSAS for 6 years now. I run 2 PSAS-support groups in the Netherlands. I am in contact with PSAS-women from all over the world. Of which many are suicidal, or land on psychiatric wards, because of this horrible monster! A monster that totally ruins the lives of women who are really suffering from it.

    Allow me to explain a few things about this condition. First: Ever since the discovery of PSAS/PGAD in 2001, all kinds of outrageous stories about this condition have been buzzing around. Because the condition has a sexual connotation, causing it to appeal to the imagination of (mainly) men, the sensation orientated media has regrettably presented this syndrome out in a disgusting manner. Tall stories about women having 100 or even 800 orgasms per day, has spectacularly boosted tabloid or magazine sales. The truth about PSAS is a lot less sensational, much more complicated and it is NOT at all enjoyable or fun to those who really suffer from it. It is most definitely not characterized by having an inhumane number of (spontaneous) orgasms. Nonsense……utter nonsense!

    PSAS manifests as arousal that occurs apart from ANY of the physical or psychological stimuli that trigger normal sexual arousal. As its name suggests, the feeling is unrelenting. It fluctuates only in degree of intensity. Orgasm not only does not relieve the feeling, it actually exacerbates the sensation: after only a few moments or minutes of relief following orgasm, the sensation returns. PSAS is persistent, highly unwanted, involuntary, unrelated to subjective feelings of sexual desire, unrelated to hormones, unrelated to libido, is intrusive and causes distress, stress, isolation, insomnia, embarrassment, shame, anxiety, distraction, exhaustion, suicidal thoughts…..

    It interferes with work, marriage, relationships, social life No need to say that the impact is huge. Interest in sex declines as an orgasm doesn’t resolve anything and only makes the symptoms worse. A dilemma every single minute of the day AND night because the urge to relief yourself is almost unbearable but remains or in most cases only grows after orgasm. That part of our bodies is living its own life. There is no joy or pleasure what so ever in having sex!! Women have begged their doctors to amputate that part of their bodies. One woman did go for the surgical clitoridectomy!! After removal the symptoms didn’t subside.

    Women with PSAS do NOT crave sex. On the contrary!! Involuntary living on the verge of an orgasm 24/7 is torture, is living hell!

    The condition has been renamed recently and is now called: Restless Genital Syndrome (ReGS) The words ‘Arousal’ and ‘Sexual’ in previous names suggest that it is a Sexual thing. A breakthrough in Scientific research in the Netherlands shows that the Nervus Dorsalis Clitoridis is responsible for the symptoms. It is hyperesthesia and neuropathy of that nerve that is driving women completely crazy…


  8. My Wii Fit must be broken 'cause I don't get any of those kind of benefits from it. I think the hula hoop may have contributed to my back injury too. 😉
