But "Foot Orgasm Syndrome?" Come on, Doc! FOS??
Here's an excerpt from the report:
"A 55-year-old woman in the Netherlands visited the doctor with an unusual complaint: She experienced unwanted orgasms that started in her foot, according to a report of her case. The orgasmic sensations - which occurred in her left foot -- were sudden, not brought on by sexual desire or thoughts, and occurred about five to six times a day, the report said. The sensation traveled up her left leg to her vagina, and she said the experience felt exactly like an orgasm achieved during sex. 'These orgasms were very embarrassing and worrying to the woman,' said study author Dr. Marcel D. Waldinger, who treated the woman and is a neuropsychiatrist and professor in sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. 'She felt terrible about it,' Waldinger said."
So, what did the good doctor do to "treat" the lucky, I mean poor woman? He injected her with a drug, an anesthetic, shot into one of her spinal nerves - the nerve that receives sensory information from the foot - and the orgasms stopped completely. Whew! The woman has not had any foot orgasms for eight months now, although, according to Waldinger, "She might need to return for another anesthetic injection if her symptoms return."
Well, you certainly got that right, fellas. Somebody's brain is very mixed up here. Yours!
First of all, why are male doctors always so concerned about women having "too much" sexual pleasure? (See my FPL posts HERE on doctors debunking the existence of the G-spot)
And secondly, why isn't anyone considering that this is an evolutionary advance in the human species?
It is said in many spiritual teachings that the closest thing human beings can experience to pure spiritual existence is an orgasm. And one that can go along with a good foot rub? Are you kidding?! When I told my partner about this story, her response was "Let's figure out how to do that!"
