Update 

In 1964, a chaste, 23-year-old woman was injured in a municipal streetcar collision in San Francisco, and in one of the most notorious turns in medical history, became a nymphomaniac because of injury to the part of her brain that controls impulsive behavior. (According to her lawyer, she once had sex with partners 50 times in one week.) She sued the city, and a jury awarded her $50,000, but then she seemed to vanish. In November 2007, a reporter from KPIX-TV in San Francisco tracked her down to an assisted-living facility in the Midwest. Gloria Sykes, 66, told the reporter she had lived in the Bay Area for a while, had married, and had traveled, but otherwise declined to talk.
