Thanks to Science You Can Have a Cyborgasm!

Okay, orgasms matter and are hopefully central to your well being and happiness. But if they aren’t, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. According to an ABC report, about 75 percent of all women never reach orgasm from intercourse alone – and that is without the extra help of sex toys, hands or tongue. And 10 to 15 percent never climax under any circumstances. Orgasms are complex and require a number of physical, emotional, hormonal and psychological elements to line up just right. One thing is for sure, we all deserve orgasms and they are scientifically proven to make us live longer!


But take note ladies: robotics are here to save the day for your sex life. Thanks to the magic of science, you can now get a card sized implant in your booty that sends positive electrical wavelengths to sensitive orgasmic nerve endings in your spine! The device uses electrodes to carefully trigger orgasms at the touch of a button. So essentially, the device is like a super amped up pair of vibrating panties or a fun lil remote controlled pocket rocket; except its permanent. 

This all seems juuust a little too good to be true, and it is. Doctor Stuart Meloy patented this invasive orgasm factory that may or may not fix one sexy aspect of your life. According to New Scientist, Meloy expects clinical trials to begin later this year with Medtronic, a company based in Minneapolis.  According to Refinery 29, filmmaker Liz Canner investigated the extent to which the device was effective in her documentary Orgasm Inc. She contacted the machine's inventor, who failed to provide any women who had experienced any success from the treatment. 

The doctor in question says the stimulating wires could connect to a signal generator implanted under the skin of one of the patient's buttocks. "Then you'd have a hand-held remote control to trigger it," he says. "But it's as invasive as a pacemaker, so this is only for extreme cases." So let it be known this new ‘toy’ isn’t guaranteed to work for everyone and it comes with the risk of complications.

Luckily this device is personalized for each individual, unlike medications or Kama Sutra positions that promise fireworks with a partner. The patient remains conscious during the operation to help the surgeon find the best position for the electrodes. Meloy said, "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’."

Another issue to consider is the underlying problems that cause sexual dysfunction. Unlike technology, the female orgasm doesn’t come with an instruction manual or Tech Support. So before you take the plunge and indulge in trials of this electrical device, maybe have a deep conversation with your partner about what does and doesn’t work, or take a break and spend some quality time with your lady bits to figure out what you need. Orgasms are also deeply rooted in psychological security, traumas or fears. Coming to terms with yours may help you…cum.

All I can say is that this device intrigues me but I will definitely stick to my own tricks rather then turn my orgasms into a science experiment. Another option is sex robots, but that’s a story for another time…
