Thank You, Science, for the Orgasm Machine

Scientists have finally quit goofing around with all that cancer-research and time travel nonsense and moved on to working on something actually important—orgasms.


A group of heroes scientists have come up with a machine that can reportedly provide orgasms for women at the switch of a button, according to the sex reporters at CBS Charlotte.

"I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically," said Stuart Meloy, a surgeon at Piedmont Anesthesia and Pain Consultants in Winston-Salem, N.C., who discovered the idea by accident. "I asked her what was up and she said, 'You're going to have to teach my husband to do that'."

A little smaller than a packet of cigarettes, the machine is designed to be a medical implant that uses electrodes to trigger an orgasm. The device would help some women who suffer from orgasmic dysfunction.

Oh that sounds great! So, how does this work exactly?

During the operation, a patient would remain conscious so that a surgeon could correctly pinpoint the right nerves to fit the electrodes in a patient's spinal cord. Then, a signal generator would be connected which would be most likely implanted under the skin of a patient's buttocks....the treatment is intended to be used in the most serious of orgasmic dysfunction cases because the device is as invasive as a pacemaker.

So good news for women with orgasmic dysfunction—clinical trials of the device start later this year.

Hmm, that's not really something I'd want to tell TSA about...
