What did John Brown give his staff at Christmas that left them
flushed and grateful? No, it’s not what you think. Except that it is,
Brown’s Yuletide gift was an Orgasmatron, a gadget that originated in
Australia and isn’t as rude as it sounds. In fact, it’s a head massaging
device that’s said to be tops for busting stress, despite the fact that

in a torture chamber.
The orgasmatron works by stimulating pressure points on the head and
neck, causing a tingling sensation in the head, shoulders, arms or legs

literature, it also ’releases bursts of the body’s energy’ and will
provide ’high levels of entertainment at dinner parties and other social
It is supposed to relieve headaches, tension and other pain and even
improve your learning ability.
The device was invented by someone called Dwayne Lacey in Perth and is
sold over here by his mother, Pam Smith. I’d love to have witnessed that
conversation: ’Mum, can you sell my orgasmatron?’
