Hmmm... could this be the way to easy FMO's?


From the Los Angeles Times
Call him doctor 'Orgasmatron'
Dr. Stuart Meloy stumbled upon an alternative -- and pleasurable -- use for an electrode stimulation device that treats pain.
By Regina Nuzzo | Special to The Times
February 11, 2008

Dr. Stuart Meloy never set out to study orgasms. It was an accident.

He was in the operating room one day in 1998, implanting electrodes into a patient's spine to treat her chronic leg pain. (The electrodes are connected to a device that fires impulses to the brain to block pain signals.) But when he turned on the power, "the patient suddenly let out something between a shriek and moan," says Meloy, an anesthesiologist and pain specialist in North Carolina.

Asked what was wrong, she replied, "You'll have to teach my husband how to do that."

Meloy moved the electrodes until he found the correct, pain-numbing position on the spine. "I went home, had a funny story to tell my wife," he says.


He almost left it at that.

But the next day, he told the story to some colleagues, and a gynecologist commented that one-third of his patients complain of orgasm dysfunction.

Might this, Meloy mused, potentially help such people?

He started a formal pilot study of the device, which is approved for use in treating bladder and pain problems, implanting it in the spines of 11 women, some of whom had never had an orgasm. The women, who were instructed to keep a record of all their sexual experiences, were allowed to use the device for nine days adlibitum.

Meloy's study, published in 2006 in the journal Neuromodulation, reported that 10 out of 11 of the patients felt pleasurable stimulation from the device, including increased vaginal lubrication. Five of the women had previously lost their ability to have orgasms; four regained it with the device. (The fifth never used her device during the nine-day trial because of work stress, she said.)

None of the five women who had never had an orgasm was able to experience one with the device, however. "They said it was pleasurable, but it wasn't sending them over the edge," Meloy says.

The experimental implant -- now trademarked by Meloy as the Orgasmatron after the orgasm-inducing cylinder in Woody Allen's 1973 movie "Sleeper" -- rests on the skin just above the belt line. Two electrodes snake into the space between the vertebrae and the spinal cord. A video-game-like remote control allows women (or their partners) to turn electrical pulses on and off and fiddle with timing and intensity.

Electrodes in the right place (determined partly by trial and error) seem to interact with various nerve networks, Meloy says, including nerves from the pelvis that enter the spinal highway near the tailbone. Stimulating those nerves shoots pleasure signals straight up to the part of the brain that processes information coming from the genitalia.

Women who have used the device say they feel as if their clitoris and vagina are actually being stimulated, to quite realistic effect. ("One woman asked me, 'Would it be considered adultery if I gave the remote control to someone other than my husband?' " Meloy says.)

Some volunteers also report fleeting episodes of clenched foot muscles, Meloy says, probably a result of electrical pulses leaving the spine and stimulating nearby motor nerves. (He wonders if the phenomenon might somehow be related to a common orgasm description: "My toes curled.")

And when the device's pulse intensity is cranked up to maximum, Meloy says, some women find their vaginal and rectal muscles squeezing rhythmically in time with the pulses, even before the orgasmic finale.

Meloy thinks that practice, or at least past experience, is key to success with the device. Without prior orgasm experiences, crucial neural pathways may never have been laid down, possibly explaining why women who'd never had orgasms did not experience one during the nine-day trial. Even with extra stimulation from the device, Meloy says, nine days may not have been enough time to build pathways up to full orgasmic strength.

And even the successful women in the trial lost their recovered orgasmic ability when the devices were removed. Meloy hopes that longer access to the device would let women practice their newfound skills and fortify neural pathways -- a sort of orgasmic neural rehabilitation.

Meloy says he has also implanted two impotent men with the device. Both volunteers were able to achieve an erection, he says, and reportedly had powerful ejaculations.

Meloy sees two potential male markets for the device. One includes men with erectile dysfunction who take nitrates for heart disease and therefore cannot take Viagra or similar medications, like Jack Nicholson's character in the film "Something's Gotta Give." The other might be recreational users, men interested in boosting their existing erections and ejaculations -- and willing to pay for elective surgery.

Design work is underway to get the cost of the procedure down to about $12,000 -- roughly the price of breast implants, Meloy says.

He plans to shrink the size of the internal processor to the size of two sticks of gum and the external processor to roughly the size of a belt pager, all while ensuring that the system is durable enough to withstand shear forces of typical use.

Before Food and Drug Administration approval could be granted and the device sent to market -- Meloy estimates that's probably still two or three years away -- the new design will need to be tested in another study, he says. But there will be no animal testing phase. "I don't know how to ask animals, 'Where do you feel the tingling?' or 'Do you want a cigarette?' "
2  Female Multiple Orgasm Forum / The Female Multiple Orgasm Main Board / are orgasms just a question of genes? on: February 21, 2009, 04:17:24 PM
What do you think about the effect of genes on orgasm?

Here's what one study on twins finds:

Female orgasm is 'down to genes'

The reason why some women have problems reaching orgasm might be down to their genes, say UK scientists.

By studying 4,000 twins, Keele and London researchers found female orgasm is not all psycho-social as some claim.

This variability might even be beneficial and have evolved to help women find the best male to mate with, they told a Royal Society journal.

The findings also suggest that women who orgasm easily may be satisfied with mates who are less skilled in bed.

Professor Tim Spector and colleagues carried out DNA tests on more than 4,000 women aged 19-83, half of whom were identical and half of whom were non-identical twins.

Identical twins share the same DNA, while non-identical twins do not.

The women were also asked to fill out confidential questionnaires about their sexual lives.

Orgasm failure

A third of the women said they never or seldom achieved orgasm, while more than a tenth said they always had an orgasm during intercourse.

More of the women were able to orgasm during masturbation, with 34% always reaching orgasm.

In comparison, studies have shown that men fail to orgasm only 2% of the time during intercourse.

Overall, orgasm frequency was higher for the identical female twins than the non-identical female twins, which the researchers said suggested there must be some genetic component.

Professor Spector, director of the Twin Research Unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London, said: "We found that between 34 and 45% of the variation in ability to orgasm can be explained by underlying genetic variation.

"There is a biological underlying influence that can't be attributed purely to upbringing, religion or race.

"The fact that it's heritable suggests that evolution has a role."

One theory is that the orgasm promotes fertility. Past research shows women are slightly more likely to orgasm during periods of fertility and that sperm uptake is increased during orgasm.

"The other theory is that orgasm is a male-selection tool," said Professor Spector.

'Many factors involved'

"If a man is considered powerful enough, strong enough, or thoughtful enough in bed or in the cave, then he's likely to hang around as a long-term partner and be a better bet for bringing up children."

Professor Spector said pinpointing the genes involved would take years because there could be hundreds.

It is possible that their influence is physical, causing variations in the G-spot, or psychological, altering arousal, he said.

Dr Margaret Rees, consultant gynaecologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and expert in female sexual dysfunction, said: "This is interesting but quite simplistic.

"There are many factors involved with female sexual dysfunction - hypoactive desire, low arousal, problems with orgasm and pain.

"Any one of these can cause the others. They are all inter-related."

Therefore, she said it was unlikely that a single drug treatment would work.

However, she said self-help and psychosexual counselling could be helpful.

The study appears in the June issue of Biology Letters.

Knowing which genes are important could potentially pave the way to drugs to help women orgasm.

Protor & Gamble? Being a mass consumer products company, that means the gel would be widely available to all women everywhere!  Smiley

However, an article (see below) I found from August of this year doesn't seem too hopeful about this product. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Noven and P&G Try “Viagra for Women” Despite History of Failure
By Jim Edwards | August 22nd, 2008

Yet another company is taking a crack at the “Viagra for women” concept. This time it is Noven Pharmaceuticals, which has licensed its testosterone-based skin patch to Procter & Gamble. The companies did not disclose the terms of the deal.

The move is an interesting one for two reasons. First, P&G has already dipped a toe in this market before and largely failed to, um, excite anyone. Second, the female sex-drive-booster category is an historic graveyard of failed products. In other words, P&G ought to know better.

On paper, the idea is fabulous: Viagra was an astonishing success, but it tapped only half the market — men. Could it be repeated in the better/other half? But let’s look at the history. Back in 2004, P&G made its first attempt at a libido-enhancer for women with a product called Intrinsa, licensed from Watson Pharmaceuticals. The FDA rejected it and it hasn’t been seen since. Watson no longer mentions the product on its web site.

Although P&G maintains a web site for Intrinsa in foreign countries the company doesn’t mention sales of Intrinsa in either its most recent quarterly or annual report. And I cannot remember an occasion on which my European buddies have ever joked about having an “Intrinsa moment.” The foregoing strongly suggests that this business is — irony alert! — a modest one. And until very recently, the Noven project was on hold at P&G, according to Noven’s own site.

Elsewhere, the pursuit of the female Viagra was most recently investigated by Pfizer, which funded a study of women taking Viagra. The study found that among women whose ability to orgasm had been affected by antidepressants, using Viagra helped the situation. However, the study has a number of problems, most importantly that it is tiny. Pfizer says it has no intention of pressing the FDA for a women’s indication for the drug.

Like Noven/P&G, BioSante Pharmaceuticals is also working the testosterone skin patch idea. It claims that

Thanks for your reply Mr. G and happy holidays!

If I understand you correctly, then the anal orgasm you describe is a vaginal (A-spot) orgasm that is provoked through anal access to the A-spot. This kind of orgasm would only apply to women then. But what about orgasm due to actual stimulation of the anus itself?
5  Female Multiple Orgasm Forum / General Discussion / Tell if a woman's had vaginal orgams by way she walks on: November 27, 2008, 01:10:07 PM
Hi,

Here's something interesting. A recent study shows that you can tell if a woman's had vaginal orgasm by the way she walks! The article and the actual journal study is below:

Sexologists Can Infer A Woman's History of Orgasms By The Way She Walks

ScienceDaily (Sep. 7, 2008) — A new study found that trained sexologists could infer a woman's history of vaginal orgasm by observing the way she walks. The study is published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Led by Stuart Brody of the University of the West of Scotland in collaboration with colleagues in Belgium, the study involved 16 female Belgian university students. Subjects completed a questionnaire on their sexual behavior and were then videotaped from a distance while walking in a public place. The videotapes were rated by two professors of sexology and two research assistants trained in the functional-sexological approach to sexology, who were not aware of the women's orgasmic history.

The results showed that the appropriately trained sexologists were able to correctly infer vaginal orgasm through watching the way the women walked over 80 percent of the time. Further analysis revealed that the sum of stride length and vertebral rotation was greater for the vaginally orgasmic women. "This could reflect the free, unblocked energetic flow from the legs through the pelvis to the spine," the authors note.

There are several plausible explanations for the results shown by this study. One possibility is that a woman's anatomical features may predispose her to greater or lesser tendency to experience vaginal orgasm. According to Brody, "Blocked pelvic muscles, which might be associated with psychosexual impairments, could both impair vaginal orgasmic response and gait." In addition, vaginally orgasmic women may feel more confident about their sexuality, which might be reflected in their gait. "Such confidence might also be related to the relationship(s) that a woman has had, given the finding that specifically penile-vaginal orgasm is associated with indices of better relationship quality," the authors state. Research has linked vaginal orgasm to better mental health.

The study provides some support for assumptions of a link between muscle blocks and sexual function, according to the authors. They conclude that it may lend credibility to the idea of incorporating training in movement, breathing and muscle patterns into the treatment of sexual dysfunction.

"Women with orgasmic dysfunction should be treated in a multi-disciplinary manner" says Irwin Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine."Although small, this study highlights the potential for multiple therapies such as expressive arts therapy incorporating movement and physical therapy focusing on the pelvic floor."

A woman's history of vaginal orgasm is discernible from her walk.
Nicholas A, Brody S, de Sutter P, de Carufel F.
J Sex Med. 2008 Sep;5(9):2119-24. Epub 2008 Jul 15.

Université Catholique de Louvain, Institut d'études de la famille et de la sexualité, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.

INTRODUCTION: Research has demonstrated the association between vaginal orgasm and better mental health. Some theories of psychotherapy assert a link between muscle blocks and disturbances of both character and sexual function. In Functional-Sexological therapy, one focus of treatment is amelioration of voluntary movement. The present study examines the association of general everyday body movement with history of vaginal orgasm. AIM: The objective was to determine if appropriately trained sexologists could infer women's history of vaginal orgasm from observing only their gait.

METHODS: Women with known histories of either vaginal orgasm or vaginal anorgasmia were videotaped walking on the street, and their orgasmic status was judged by sexologists blind to their history.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The concordance between having had orgasms triggered by penile-vaginal intercourse (not orgasm from direct clitoral stimulation) and raters' inferences of vaginal orgasm history based on observation of the woman's walk was the main outcome measure.

RESULTS: In the sample of healthy young Belgian women (half of whom were vaginally orgasmic), history of vaginal orgasm (triggered solely by penile-vaginal intercourse) was diagnosable at far better than chance level (81.25% correct, Fisher's Exact Test P < 0.05) by appropriately trained sexologists. Clitoral orgasm history was unrelated to both ratings and to vaginal orgasm history. Exploratory analyses suggest that greater pelvic and vertebral rotation and stride length might be characteristic of the gait of women who have experienced vaginal orgasm (r = 0.51, P < 0.05).

CONCLUSIONS: The discerning observer may infer women's experience of vaginal orgasm from a gait that comprises fluidity, energy, sensuality, freedom, and absence of both flaccid and locked muscles. Results are discussed with regard to previous research on gait, the effect of the musculature on sexual function, the special nature of vaginal orgasm, and implications for sexual therapy.

Do anal orgasms really exist?!? I'd like to hear from someone who's had one.
