Electrode apparatus for stimulating living tissue


Electrodes for stimulating living tissue such as vaginal, anal, clitoral, penile, and scrotal tissue are shown. Electrical stimulation to such areas is intended to induce excitation and orgasm in either females or males, particularly where frigidity or impotence is a problem. Four embodiments of the electrode apparatus include a flexible tube shaped base and an electrode either in the form of a loop or a stem coupled to the base. The electrode is formed from one of an electrically-conductive solid cord, an electrically-conductive tube, and an insulated conductor cable. An electrical contact at one end of the electrode allows the electrode to be connected to an electrical source. Auxiliary members such as conductive beads, conductive endpieces, conductive or nonconductive tube shaped coverings, and vibrators are added to any of the electrode apparatuses to impart specific stimuli in specific regions of the user's anatomy.
