Medtronic on board to test orgasm device

  • North Carolina surgeon Stuart Meloy may have discovered a game changer for some women: a device that produces "orgasms on demand". He decided to pursue developing the product after witnessing a female patient's intense stimulation after he placed electrodes in her lower back for an undisclosed condition.
  • The device consists of two electrodes that will be surgically inserted into certain nerves in the spinal column and a cigarette pack-size signal generator implanted in the upper buttock. The user presses a remote control button for stimulation.
  • The device will be studied for women who have serious cases of orgasmic dysfunction where some women's brains interpret arousal as a fear response.
  • Medtronic (MDT) has signed on to conduct tests.
  • No decision on developing a mass market version has been disclosed.

    If you thought women were difficult before, wait until they get this planted inside them.
