HIT ME BABY ONE MORE TIME!
Winston-Salem surgeon Stuart Meloy and associates recently won their patent for an "orgasm machine" (first mentioned in NOTW in 2001), allowing patient trials to begin soon by a Minnesota company. The often-described birth of the device came as Dr. Meloy was treating a woman for excruciating back pain by running electrodes to the spinal column when he "accidentally" brushed the nerve apparently responsible for the female orgasm. Eventually, Dr. Meloy developed a pacemaker-type device to be implanted in a buttock, with a push-button "pain reliever" that the woman uses to charge the electrodes. He emphasizes the surgery is so invasive as to be improper for all except women with "serious" orgasmic dysfunction.
