A young woman has revealed the details of her painful struggle with a condition that leaves her constantly sexually aroused.
Amanda McLaughlin, 23, from the US, has lived with the problem for ten years and says she has to beg her fiance JoJo for sex every day to relieve her symptoms.
The condition, called persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD), causes pain in her legs and pelvis that is so bad she is unable to work and rarely leaves her home.

Now Ms McLaughlin has spoken of her ordeal as part of a documentary for BBC Three's Living Differently.
'It's not fun to be aroused all the time,' she said. 'It feels like you're about to orgasm and then it never goes away.'
Ms McLaughlin's symptoms began when she was just 13 years old but she was not diagnosed with PGAD until six years later.
Her mother Victoria admitted that she and her family did not understand her daughter's condition at first.
'When she first became sexually active she was having sex a lot,' she said. 'My whole family just thought she was a w****.
'I doubted her completely - I still feel guilty.'
Victoria is now very supportive of her daughter as is JoJo.
