Push-button 'orgasm machine' invented for women

The device would use a hand-held remote control with surgical implants.

A DEVICE THAT gives users an instant orgasm at the touch of a button has been patented in the US.

The wearser would use a hand-held remote control to send signals to surgical implants in their own spinal cord, which would then stimulate an orgasm.

However, its creator says it is only for use in ‘extreme cases’ by women who find it impossible to orgasm naturally. Dr Stuart Meloy told New Scientist it would be programmed to limit its use, adding:

But whether it’s once a day, four times a week – who am I to say?

Meloy said the inspiration came as he was placing electrodes for another procedure and failed to hit the right spot.

I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically. I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that’.

Difficulty reaching orgasm is not uncommon. Anorgasmia – an inability to reach orgasm – affects around 10 per cent of women, according to the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. Both physical and psychological factors can be causes.

Only around 29 per cent of women always have orgasms with their partner, according to the Kinsey Institute.

The machine, which is smaller than a packet of cigarettes is expected to begin clinical trials this year. It has not yet been tested on men.
