Amanda Flowers, a catering worker in Manchester, needs 10 sex sessions a day – courtesy a fall from her Wii Fit board which turned her into a sex addict.

Even the slightest of vibrations, from mobile phones to food processors, turns her on, reports The Daily Star.

She said: “It began as a twinge down below before surging through my body. Sometimes it built up into a trembling orgasm.”

A doctor diagnosed her with persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a damaged nerve.

Single Amanda, 24, from Harpurhey, said: “With no cure I just have to try to control my passion by breathing deeply. Hopefully one day I’ll find a superstud who can satisfy me.”

This has to be a hoax, from a silly tabloid! If the name Amanda Flowers doesn’t rub you the wrong way, her quote should ring some bells:  “Hopefully one day I’ll find a superstud who can satisfy me”. If this isn’t a hoax, this is a very clever marketing ploy by Nintendo Wii…that happens to be working, because now I want to buy a Wii Fit balance board.

The Huffington Post rehash of the same article links to a 2008 article from Fox News about people injuring themselves on the Wii, and passes it off as if the injuries are related solely to the Wii board. It’s not like those same people would hurt themselves walking down some stairs, or stepping off a curb now, would they? Their clumsiness is all on the Wii.

…And just for shits and giggles, some folks on the internet have begun a “Orgasm Warning Labels for the Wii Balance Board” petition.
