It is no longer science-fiction and the device was discovered in 1998 by accident by Dr. Stuart Meloy, anesthesiologist, when he was implanting electrodes in the spine of a patient who suffered from chronic leg pain.
He was surprised when after turning on the power "the patient suddenly let out something between a shriek and moan." and answered when he asked what was wrong:
"You'll have to teach my husband how to do that."
She had orgasm as "side effect" of the treatment of her pain. Dr. Stuart did a research on 11 women and 10 could achieve orgasm.
I've been searching and all that is being said about this device is the same in different medias:
"In a surgical procedure done in his office, Meloy implants two electrodes from this device into the back of the patient, at the bottom part of the spinal cord. When the electrodes are stimulated with a remote control, "the brain interprets the signal as an orgasm", he said. The device is about the size of a pacemaker and can be turned on and off with a handheld remote control.In a era where women implant silicone all over and surgery became a routine few would stop to think about implanting two electrodes to have a little kick from the remote.
Meloy conducted a study of 11 women that he has submitted for publication to the Journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.
"Six of them had never had an orgasm before," Meloy said. "Five of them had and then lost the ability. The results were promising in my mind. We were able to stimulate 91 percent of the women, 10 out of 11."
Knowing how FDA, science and medicine has been regulating their treatments we know that the marketing of the device will be determined not on the health of women but on which will be more profitable.
