Honey, Have You Seen the Remote?

| May/June 2001

A North Carolina surgeon has developed an implant that will trigger orgasms in women, according to New Scientist (Feb. 10, 2001). The device, a signal generator smaller than a pack of cigarettes implanted under the skin of the buttock and connected to electrodes in the spinal cord, could be triggered by remote control, says Dr. Stuart Meloy. Clinical trials will begin later this year.
