I'm sure many of us have heard of an experiment in which rats attached to electrodes were given direct jolts of orgasmic pleasure every time they pressed a button. Where and when was this experiment first carried out and what did it prove?

Yay Mibby, you are on the ball today!|
More to the point, do they make these devices for humans and can I have one wired up in my house?
There have been at least two cases where humans got|
similar treatment, report Paul Abramson and Steven Pinkerton
in "With Pleasure: Thoughts on the Nature of Human
Sexuality": A male psychiatric patient and a female
epileptic had brain electrodes implanted "for therapeutic
purposes," and when stimulation occurred in areas of the
limbic system, both reported experiencing sexual pleasure.
The wired-up guy, in fact, gave the rats a run for
their money, hitting the button some 1,500 times an hour!
"Not surprisingly, he also begged for a few more jolts just
before the apparatus was put away."
