The First Vibrator Ever To Be Made In Australia Comes With Added Science

Australia exports a great many things to the world, including natural resources, mediocre sports personalities and most importantly, Tim Tams. Never before — or so I'm told — have we been responsible for the invention and distribution of a locally made marital aid, though. That is, until now, at least. Condom company, Big Richard, has teamed up with a research lab in the US to create a marital aid that is a first for Australia, and one that is also based on more than just buzzing on and around the lady harp.

I'm not going to pretend my thesaurus isn't right next to me this whole time as I try to come up with words that won't run foul of your corporate filter, by the way.

It's called the Afterglow, and Australian condom company Big Richard Industries has developed it in conjunction with Afterglow Science in the US as a tool that brings you to a state of climax by stimulating blood flow around the area in question.

Scientists behind the product claim that it was actually invented by accident after clinical trials to treat pelvic floor pain in women started seeing strange results:

The technology inside the Afterglow was derived from a series of IRB approved clinical trials. Test subjects reported feelings of increased arousal. In one case, a woman reported '[reaching climax] for the first time in her life' while another praised the fact that she 'felt younger down there'.

If you're interested in nabbing the Afterglow, it'll set you back $249 and it ships in January 2013.

If you were able to read all the way to this point unobstructed by corporate firewalls, I recommend you all get yourselves an Oxford Thesaurus the next time you want to dodge awkward terms in a news article.
