The thin line between pleasure and pain was aptly demonstrated in the case of an American woman who had an orgasm which lasted for three whole hours.

The lady, simply identified as Liz from Seattle had to be taken to an emergency room when it became apparent that the orgasm was not nearing its end.

The incident left doctors confused as they initially thought she was going into labour.

The Mirror reports:

Doctors initially thought that Liz was going into labour when she arrived at the emergency room in Seattle – only to discover that she was short of breath due to a seemingly never-ending orgasm.

Liz and her partner Eric discuss the ordeal – which is accompanied by a dramatic reconstruction – as part of TLC’s new series Sex Sent me to the ER.

She said: “I started hopping up and down to see if that would do anything, but there was nothing we could come up with that would stop me from orgasming.”

The couple also reportedly attempted to subdue the intensity of the orgasm with some wine – before deciding after two hours that it was time to go to the emergency room.

It took another hour of painful pleasure before the orgasm eventually died down, with Liz now being closely monitored by several bemused doctors.

Even Eric found himself becoming less smug as the minutes went on.

He added: “There were eyes on me and I was still feeling very tense and uptight and uncertain about what was going on and what was going to happen”.
