Okay, it's way, way OT, but this came in my daily abstract listing, and
I couldn't help but giggle. The title sounds so formal...

Sipski, M. L., Alexander, C. J., Gomez-Marin, O., Grossbard, M. and
Rosen, R. (2005). Effects of vibratory stimulation on sexual response
in women with spinal cord injury. Journal of Rehabilitation Research
and Development 42, 609-616.

I wonder how they went about getting test subjects?

Too easy.

But I wanna see the grant writeup and ethics approval.
