The Independent reports on an accidentally invented orgasm machine that delivers climax at the push of a button:

Scientists have devised a machine that can help women achieve ’emphatic’ orgasms at the push of a button.

Slightly smaller than a packet of cigarettes, the device uses electrodes attached to the patients spine, with orgasms being triggered by a remote control.

The machine is not intended for a mass market looking to spice up their day at whim or expedite their sexual encounters however, but for women who normally struggle to achieve orgasm.

North Carolina surgeon Stuart Meloy told New Scientist how he conjured up the idea while performing a procedure on a female patient.

“I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically,” he said. “I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that’.” Spinal implant is controlled via remote control (Picture: New Scientist)

Clinical trials of the machine are due to commence later in the year, with Meloy adding that it could help couples with withering sex lives.

“If you’ve got a couple who’ve been together for a while and it’s just not happening any more, maybe they’ll get through it a bit easier with this,” he said…

    Fun future shenanigan: Get a woman to walk around wearing one and randomly set it off.

    It’s just electrodes. All you need is to know how much electricity and where exactly to place it. There’ll be a black market soon enough.

      Sacral foramena. And probably microamperes.

      They actually make a therapeutic device for delivering small electrical charges via electrodes to the back-called the TENS unit. Similar devices are already sold on Ebay as an “adult novelty”. You are correct, its not anything new or amazing.

    That’s an interesting topic, and people are divided on it. Some people believe female orgasm is an evolutionary byproduct. Others believe that it serves a multitude of possible roles in the reproductive process, especially when it comes to things like pair-bonding It’s very much up for debate, at least when it comes to science. 😉
