The British-born woman who made international headlines after revealing she sometimes has up to 100 orgasms a will speak about her medical condition on today's "The Jeff Probst Show."
During the Jan. 16 broadcast, which will air in the Nashville market at 2 p.m. on WKRN, Kim Ramsey will explain to host Probst how going public about her condition made her the butt of jokes and led to her losing friends and family.
Ramsey was diagnosed with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder, or PGAD, after continually having the sensation of orgasms, but without any sexual arousal. The nature of her disorder made it difficult to find and connect with others who suffered similarly, but she knew she was not the only one.
Consequently, last summer she made the brave decision to come out and try to help educate people about her condition and agreed to speak with a reporter. The resulting story, which she called "tasteless," made headlines around the world and the jokes at her expense caused her to feel shame and ridicule.
Per a Jan. 15 correspondence shared with Examiner.com, Ramsey said the reaction to her decision to reveal her medical condition was devastating.
"Friends dropped me, family members stopped speaking to me, people who I work with snickered behind my back or snickered in my face," she said. "Getting recognized in the street, that kind of stuff, having reporters outside your front door, having people write your home and tell you that you're possessed with evil spirits. I went from being a regular person to a notorious person and I've done nothing wrong other than have something that is a medical condition."
During her interview with Probst, Ramsey also will recount the tragic stories of two other women she knew who committed suicide due to the disorder and tries to offer insight to how traumatic this disorder can be.
"There are many women that have this, but are too embarrassed to talk about it. Some people are on an online group and they're anonymous because they just don't want to be attached to it." she shared. "I feel like, as a woman, there are certain things that we can't talk about yet in society. Unfortunately, for women, we have different constraints; socially not acceptable; religious constraints. A woman really shouldn't be talking about things like this. I'm very fortunate that my primary care physician did a tremendous job with listening to me."
