AN electric zap to a woman’s ankle may make her randier than foreplay, scientists reckon.
Sending current up a nerve from the foot to the base of the spine boosts female sex drive.
It works in under 30 minutes by sending blood surging to women’s privates, tests show. They experience a mild tickle-like tingle.
Three-month trials on 30 women will confirm whether it could aid the one in four with low libido.
Prof Tim Bruns, of Michigan University, US, said: “We’re really hopeful. If stimulation is repeated over three months, it could lead to better blood flow and nerve connections to the vagina.
“It would improve symptoms of genital arousal disorder.”
Experts had the idea after finding it improved sex for women having the treatment for incontinence.
It involves putting a tiny needle in the ankle and passing a mild current along the tibial nerve.
Dr Geoff Hackett, British Society of Sexual Medicine chief, said: “If it works it could be cost-effective and more acceptable than drugs.”
