back to article Wii Fit fall woman turns into nympho

A Manchester woman who took a tumble from her Wii Fit board is suffering an earth-moving side effect of the Nintendo-related mishap: she's now a nymphomaniac. "Randy" Amanda Flowers, 24, was diagnosed with "persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a damaged nerve", the Daily Star explains. She's susceptible to the "slightest …

    Interesting difference

    Shows the difference between UK and USA - in the latter I'm sure Ms Flowers would be reaching for that attorney, whereas here in Blighty it's more likely a call to Max Clifford.

    That said, checking the instructions for my Wii-Fit (too many sodas/beers/pizzas to work off) and it does quite clearly warn you about losing balance. Slippery rugs are definite no-no.

    Stupid question - but if it's a knocked nerve isn't there something that the medics can do? Joking/sniggering apart - this is bound to be somewhat of a disability.

      Never think these kinds of things through.. for instance, would you really want to have sex with men 10 times a day for a few days?

      (I am of course making assumptions based on the general geekiness of the register reader base; straight, nerdy and with interesting social skills (that includes me too btw)).. you may of course be a gay adonis with an who just wishes he had a larger libido.. I which case I guess my point is a bit moot)

        @ oddie

        Sadly I'm neither gay adonis nor moderatrix. Besides, I have no doubt sockpuppeting is probably beneath our beloved Ms Bee. At the very least there will be minions for that sort of thing.

        Just out of interest - why would swapping places with her imply having sex with men 10 times a day? Why would it imply having sex with anyone? That's the kind of thinking I was referring to in my first post, and which leads to the Star printing priapic nonsense like "Hopefully one day I’ll find a superstud who can satisfy me" ;o)

      USA bashing again.

      You owe the US bashing kitty a £. From what I hear you're just as litigious over on your side of the pond as we are.

      Wonder why nobody ever gets these injuries falling off their Step Aerobics boards? Or a brick?

      I guess because the brick doesn't have deep pockets like Nintendo does.

      1. Anonymous Coward
        FAIL

        Fair and Balanced USA Bashing though

        Having lived on both sides of the pond, I can definitely testify to the UK being much less litigious than the USA. There are a few reasons for that:

        1) Punitive damages. Damages awards in the UK are a tiny fraction of what they are in the US. This makes it much harder for lawyers to get rich ambulance chasing and therefore reduces the number of lawyer induced ridiculous lawsuits.

        2) No win no fee. This was only recently introduced in the UK, and is a key driver of crazy lawsuits. Interestingly, no win no fee has lots of limitations in the UK, and a frivolous law suit is much more likely to result in extensive costs for the complainant in the UK than the US.

        Also another clear sign that litigation is much more likely in the US than the UK is the presence of adverts about companies converting structured settlements into cash now. These adverts don't exist at all in the UK, but are regularly on daytime TV in the US.

    nymphomania?

    is a mental illness which is sometimes has an aspect of a heightened desire for physical sex to offset feelings of low self worth. You don't want to wish this on your girlfriend; You nip down the shops for five minutes and you return find her naked in the street running after the milkman and don't try to go to work, whatever you do. She then spends a prolonged period in a mental hospital.

    Nowadays (i.e. since the invention of psycho-analysis) they talk about hypersexuality; Increased desire for sex for a variety of reasons. But hey, schizophrenia is not multiple personality disorder, why let facts get in the way of a good story.

      Re: Someone want to buy a Wii fit?

      You're obviously using the wrong exercise technique. To increase the size of your wife's labido you're probably going to have to do something that involves small weights and patience, or possibly some kind of vacuum appliance. I'd Google it for you, but have Safesearch turned on.

      That'll teach me to read the whole post..

      I thought you and your missus had only "had one" in the three years since "it" came out.....

      Oh, Gawd, re-read it after a pint or three. (I've bought you one - see icon)

      Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Lack of information

    Notice these articles never specify which nerve it is or how to damage it on purpose?

    Free Wii's for all Ms Bee's.

    I can afford to buy a few hunderd of those there Wii thingies to hand out .

    Maybe this could be a repeatable 'accident'.

    I want to see a episode of BullShit with Penn n Teller doing a re-enactment of the

    series of events that led up to this wondrous development.

    RE: The piccies

    Assuming that is her, I would say although she is not model standard she is not exactly grotesque either.

    Guys complaining about not enough sex: perhaps if you did one or more of the following you might get it more often:

    -actually being nice to your partner

    -helping around the house once in a while

    -losing some weight and getting your hair cut

    -getting a woman in the first place

    -not being such a dick

    -showering occasionally (change your clothes regularly too)

    The one consistent factor in *you* not getting sex is, well, you.

      Doing it wrong

      «getting your hair cut»

      If long hair hinders your horizontal tango abilities, you're doing it wrong.

    nympho? If they're that sensitive, isn't it just like premature ejac?
