In brief: Tourette's Syndrome

Tourette syndrome is a disorder with tics -- sudden involuntary behaviors like uttering syllables, words, or making motions.
The tics are not usually complex sexual behaviors, but there may be certain gestures or explosive words with sexual connotations. The cause isn't known, but there can be abnormalities in certain brain areas associated with movement. http://tinyurl.com/lzr7aje.
