How is having devices implanted in your back and butt and having to push a button to have an orgasm going to help you resume a normal sex life?
Well, if you had the great misfortune of being born intersex and were thus subjected to damaging yet well-meaning genital surgery as an infant or small child, you might have had your ability to have orgasms removed with a surgeon's knife.
This happened to Cheryl Chase, one of the most visible and vocal activists in the intersex movement. Her enlarged clitoris was completely removed, and surgeons she has consulted have told her that they can't help her - there is no tissue left that they can use to try to reconstruct a semblance of a working clitoris.
So I say, give this thing to the unfortunate folks who've had their genitals messed with without their consent - let them try to live a normal life, eh.posted by beth at 11:03 AM on February 8, 2001
