PA 1728831 Surgeon Stuart Meloy Finds It Tough Raising Money For The Orgasm Button

Liz Paul, from Shipley in West Yorkshire, displays her trademarked invention known as Vielle, which is, it is claimed, the first clitoral stimulator that is clinically proven to improve the chances of orgasm, at an awards ceremony at The Cafe Royal in central London. * The reception is held to celebrate the success and breadth of female inventors across the country. Date: 25/04/2003

STUART Meloy is the surgeon at Piedmont Anesthesia and Pain Consultants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who when experimenting with pain relief discovered the orgasm pill. He recalled the Eureka moment:

“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.'”

In 2003 he sought volunteers for early tests. But they were hard to come by. 

He’s looking to raise $6 million for a full trial. And – incredibly – that’s proving difficult.

Who knew it would be that hard to get backing for an orgasm button?
