Experiment allows paralyzed men to have sex again
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Overcoming Adversity
Huh, I did not know that most paralyzed men would choose having sex and controlling their bladder/bowels above walking again!
Makes sense now that you mention it.
Very interesting that a spinal stimulator (I'm more familiar with it's use for intractable back pain), would also have this effect.
They do implants for back pain?
No, it wasn't Viagra -- doctors had previously prescribed the pill in huge doses, but all he got was a big headache. What gave Stephenson his groove back was an electrical stimulator surgically implanted in his spine as part of a study on paralysis.
