This doctor injects blood into women's vaginas to help them climax

The conversation around sexual dysfunction usually revolves around male problems, but not much has been said about female sexual dysfunction. This isn’t because sex is usually smooth sailing for women—far from it. Around 30% of women have trouble reaching orgasm when having sex, according to statistics from Planned Parenthood.

That’s why the O Shot is so revolutionary. Invented by Alabama-based Dr. Charles Runels (also the inventor of the now-infamous “vampire facial”) in 2009 and trademarked in 2011, the procedure is supposed to help women climax, The Guardian reports.

The procedure involves extracting platelet-rich plasma from a woman’s blood and injecting it into the clitoris and the ceiling of her vagina. This is said to increase lubrication and sensitivity, helping her achieve orgasm.

More than 20,000 women have gotten the O Shot. The price of the procedure ranges from US$1,000-$1,500, and only Runels and the 500+ certified practitioners he has trained can perform the treatment.
