How much information is too much information?

I think this article from The Daily Telegraph, probably sheds a bit too much information than what we'd like to hear...

A WOMAN with a medical condition that gives her 300 orgasms a day has found a man of her dreams after she wore out a string of boyfriends.

Michelle Thompson, who suffers from Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome, thought she was just too demanding for men and would never find the man of her dreams.

But she has been with her neighbour Andrew Carr, 32, for the past six months and he's as keen for sexual intercourse as she is and they make love 10 times a day.

Michelle's rare condition means she always craves sex and can climax at any time anywhere.

She even had to quit a job in a biscuit factory because the machines kept setting her off.

"I know I'm lucky to have so many orgasms when there are women who have never had one. But the condition has ruined my love life," she said.

Michelle's first boyfriend bowed out after a few months saying he couldn't keep up with her demands. And over the years several others gave up - with one telling her he was a man not a machine.

She dated one man for five years but "by the time we broke up, he was exhausted, he left as a defeated man".

Then in May she met Andrew, who is divorced, who lives over the road in Nelson, Lancashire, England.

"I did worry that he would grow tired of me like everyone else, but when I told him he laughed and said he would burn me out first," she said.

Am I the only person that's thinking, okay cool- that's great for you and your private life but there's no need for it to be published in a tabloid.

The main thing that puzzles me about this article is how the "news story" came to the attention of the reporter. I mean, Michelle isn't a celebrity or public figure and there's been no medical miracle story in this at all. It's simply about some random woman who is finally content with her bedroom life.

Must have been a very slow news day.

(If she has 300 per day, this is approximately 12.5 per hour. And just as she thought she was finally drifting off to sleep...!)

I'm sure there is much other ground to cover news-wise, but a simple human interest piece isn't going to hurt anyone- hey it could even give hope to fellow sufferers!

This particular medical condition has become something of a trend topic in the past month, though, so I can see why the story may have been chosen over others.

Yes, that's a little too much information, indeed. Definitely not necessary.

What a stupid way to report on a syndrome that seems to be, in reality, a really horrible thing to have, not just a matter of 'ho ho I had to find someone who could keep up with me'. I guess it was the ladies choice to go this angle, but I have seen documentaries about this condition that treats it much more sensitively and doesn't sensationalise or glorify it. Too much to expect from the Tele, I guess.
