Do you wish you could have a better orgasm? Help may be a click of a button away. A device called the Orgasmatron is placed inside the body and is purported to help give orgasms to those who may be challenged in that area. It costs about $23,000, not including the surgery to put the device in, Dr. Ordon says.
Created by Dr. Stuart Meloy, the Orgasmatron is a spinal-cord stimulator inserted in the lower back and is about the size of a pacemaker. A hand-held remote controls the device, which stimulates electrodes placed on the spine. It was able to restore orgasmic function in 80 percent of women who were unable to climax for at least one year, according a recent study. These women had experienced at least one orgasm in their lifetime prior to the study. The Orgasmatron is also known as Neurally Augmented Sexual Function.
“Some women really have difficulty [achieving orgasm] and it affects their sexuality,” Dr. Lisa says. “And sexuality is a very important part for a woman because it goes towards her confidence and how she feels about herself. And if she hasn’t had this experience, there’s an option.”
Before spending the money for an Orgasmatron, however, The Doctors advise trying other, less-expensive options first.
