Orgasm-matic A Reality? Maybe...  
A scientist claims to have invented a device which produces orgasms at the touch of a button...but can't find women to help him conduct trials into it. The implant, inserted under the skin at the base of the spine, triggers a reflex response to produce sensation. Dr Stuart Meloy, from North Carolina, told New Scientist: "I thought people would be beating my door down." However, British experts said that a surgical implant was not an appropriate answer to women's sexual problems. Dr Meloy told New Scientist magazine: "I don't see it any differently from procedures such as breast implants. "But so far I am struggling to find people."

If it was something a woman could get implanted or done to herself to ensure the sexual pleasure of her mate, would she do it? Hrmh. Just a question.

Re: Hrmh...
Well, I can see where some of the detractors are coming from, saying that it's the kind of product that goes along with sexual performance as a measure of someone. At the same time, that's not why he did it, and it's putting it in a bad light.

It's all so fucked, anyhow.

(with raised eyebrows she asks) there are so many other ways, why surgery?? The pain, the scar tissue, so many factors. So many other ways, she shakes her head. However, as the saying goes; if you build a ball park, they will come.

Re: Hrmh...
the only thing I thought of after writing this if it could help people with spinal injuries, then I can see it.

Re: Hrmh...
I agree with you.

I remember when this issue first surfaced when he invented it. I wasn't sure what the reaction would be. Cute.
