Life is stressful. Work is stressful. For most of us, there’s no escaping it. But those for whom the pressures of everyday life are too much grasp desperately for anything which might bring a modicum of relief. One such person is Brazil’s Ana Catarina Silvares Bezerra, an accountant who takes a hands-on approach to stress relief. Bezerra combats her workday woes by masturbating as much as 47 times a day.
Unsurprisingly, Bezerra initially encountered some resistance from her employer, who asked that the accountant not flick her bean at work. Bezerra was undeterred, and took her complaint to the Brazilian courts, insisting that she was suffering from severe anxiety and hypersexuality, and that rubbing one out was the only sure means to combat these conditions. The courts agreed, and now Bezerra is free to watch porn on her work computer, all the while vigorously pleasuring herself.
Although the accountant’s co-workers have gradually come to accept her thrice-hourly grind, she met with some resistance at first. Bezerra’s orgiastic gyrations were often misperceived as fits of some kind, and even after the nature of her unique ailment was revealed, her onanistic episodes still caused moments of confusion. Said one coworker, “We couldn’t tell if she was having a stroke or just having a stroke.”
