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.
