Unless your name is Ana Catarian Bezerra, don't get all handsy at work just yet. The Brazilian woman masturbates up to 18 times a day due to a strange medical condition. After filing suit against her bosses, a Brazilian court has now given her the okay to masturbate at work.

Bezerra, 36, suffers from severe anxiety and hypersexuality - something that makes her "compulsion orgasmic," reports Gather.com.

A single mother of three children, Bezerra works as an accountant - a seemingly buttoned-up profession for such a buttoned-down condition, reports Guanabee.com.

In the past, Bezerra would need to masturbate as much as 47 times a day. Her physician, Carlos Howert, has prescribed her a "cocktail" of tranquilizers to help curb her condition. Now she only has to masturbate around 18 times a day, according to Guanabee.

One word? Yikes.

Bezerra had to take her employer to court last April, where she won. Now, she will get 15 minute breaks every 2 hours where she can surf porn and get her release, AOL reports.

Don't get too excited though - remember that this is in Brazil, and here in the U.S. there are no court-mandated masturbation breaks available.

Generally, most employees are entitled to breaks after a certain number of hours at work. What you do during those breaks is generally up to you - get a cup of coffee, walk around, touch up your makeup, or even take a smoke break.

Of course, if you decide to surf porn during your break - and masturbate - you may be breaking your employer's policies.

So if you're a Brazilian woman that masturbates up to 18 times a day due to a medical condition, with a court order that says you can masturbate at work - go right ahead. If not, please keep your hands where we can see them.
