2009: a "pleasurable" year

Scientists are developing an electronic "sex chip" that can be implanted into the brain to stimulate pleasure.

It works by implanting electrodes in the brain.
Precisely in the area of the brain just behind the eyes known as the orbit frontal cortex - this is associated with feelings of pleasure derived from eating and sex.

"There is evidence that this chip will work. A few years ago a scientist implanted such a device into the brain of a woman with a low sex drive and turned her into a very sexually active woman. She didn't like the sudden change, so the wiring in her head was removed."
The technology is not yet ready and could be used causing deep brain stimulations.
It opens the doors to a huge number of possibilities.
