So, you might have seen some exciting headlines recently. On MailOnline...
And on the Independent.
Here's an illustration of how it works.

Well, the research both stories are based on was actually published in 2006. It concluded: "Pleasurable genital stimulation of the spinal cord is a consistently reproducible phenomenon. In a subset of the population studied, improvement in orgasmic function was noted. This was noted in the group with secondary orgasmic dysfunction."
