the dangers of bingo

Bingo is one of the most popular diversions offered to patients at the Gimcrack. The chance of winning fifty grams of chocolate is apparently worth getting out of bed for. Of course there’s also the likelihood of getting stabbed in the eye with a marker pen because it is a competition after all, and our patients are a feisty lot.


In Milwaukee, playing bingo can yield even more surprising results

“A 73 year old woman claimed she became sexually attracted to other women and started having spontaneous orgasms after an electric bingo scoreboard fell on her head. the woman asked for $90,000 from the church where the bingo game took place, but the judge threw out her case because she refused to undergo court-ordered psychological examination.”


Apparently, she’s not alone. Β This problem even has a name – Persistant Genital Arousal Disorder

The condition of Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder was first named and properly medicalised in 2001 but obviously women have been suffering from this condition for millennia. The embarrassing nature of it means that very few women actually report it and instead live with their guilty secret. There is not much that can be done if you suffer from PGAD at present but some treatments involving electroconvulsive therapy, stretching exercises and the use of medications which have Female Sexual Dysfunction as a side effect have been effective.

  1. These P-Gad gals need to hook up with the guys at

    • haha…. I hadn’t seen that site before. Pretty funny.

      • Thanks. I forgot about that site.

        Thomas πŸ™‚

  2. Thank goodness I’m not alone…

  3. She sued over that! …… how odd ….. I would have thought she’d have been quite pleased …..

    • some people are impossible to please

      • how selfish of her to demand moeny for personal gratification! isn’t that called prostitution? (not that there’s anything wrong with that) personally, i think she owes them money.

  4. Any spare electric bingo scoreboards lying around?

    • Julie – if I find one it’s yours!

      • Thank You – when passing it along, please ensure my head is in the way πŸ˜€

  5. Do you have a bingo scoreboard that causes you to be attractive to men? Just a small one, I’m old.

  6. cure PGAD? huh? they should try to bottle it…

  7. If this is so common they should advertise themselves. Spontaneous Orgasms. Men would be lining up for that. Wouldn’t have to try so hard…h aha

  8. PGAD, hmm reminds me of the male equivalent which was oft expressed verbally in days of yore. When a chap said “EGAD” we all knew and sympathised with the poor old stick!

    I say welcome to the club ladies!

    The King

  9. Why would we want to cure it? Its a great distraction when the footballs on!

    Im getting off and helping the environment by not buying batteries in bulk!

    • Hi Mia, welcome to the Gimcrack. You appear to have a special welcome from the delectable King Willy as well

  10. Joke #1. How do you get four grandmothers to yell Fuck? Get the fifth to yell Bingo.

    Joke #2. A woman goes to her doctor and says “Is something wrong with me? Every time I sneeze, I have an orgasm.” “What have you been doing about this so far?” asks the doctor. “Sniffing pepper.”

  11. So that’s what’s going on when I see a woman all by herself with a smile from cheek to cheek.

    • which cheeks are we taking about?

  12. I’d like to offer my services free to these poor lady sufferers of PGAD. Except of course for the weekends during the fitba season.

  13. It seems anything where women have fun is termed a disease.

    (Those men need to put their shirts back on.)

  14. And for men…it happens every morning…sproing.

  15. I don’t know so much about getting out of bed, but I once knew a woman who would get into bed for 50 grams of chocolate.

    • some days that would be *me*

  16. I’m totally freakishly lucky at Bingo……… I ALWAYS WIN there is something alligned in the universe when I play………. mental note, don’t play with your fiesty patients, they get get angry at me

  17. I like to think of myself as a persistent genital arouser.

    • Funny, that’s exactly how I think about you too

  18. Bingo has always had an ‘aside’ to it… particularly when someone wins four corners on the front at Blackpool when you get a fluffy gonk or key ring … I have witnessed some almost orgasmic over that!! πŸ˜‰

  19. Does it strike anyone as funny that BINGO is the only kind of gambling that is generally done in churches and not in casinos?

  20. Women suffer from more fatal OMYGAWD [Ominous MYsterious Genital Arousal Withdrawal Disorder ] when they try to quit PGAD.
    Men are happier with just their morning boner i guess πŸ˜‰

  21. Some women would be thanking that fallen scoreboard.

  22. “electroconvulsive therapy” You mean medically induced brain damage. Electricity (therapy = multiple times performed)through a persons brain damages the cells of the brain like any other peice of human flesh, and is intended to damage it. But it is a cowardly way. Old time 1949 Nobel Prize winning Dr Egas Moniz was at lease honest about what he was doing with a lobotomy.
