Sexier Sex: The Shot that Could Make It Happen
If you feel like the thrill is gone, listen to these three midlife women who got—yikes—a shot down there for better orgasms. Stephanie Booth finds out if it the O-Shot works.
If only there was a simple procedure that could magically help you orgasm faster and more intensely. Oh, wait—there just may be.
No need to keep this a secret - The O-Shot is worth talking opening about.
In what will come as a surprise to exactly no one, as you get older, your sex drive tends to wane. And women, sadly, are two to three times more likely to be affected than men. But there is a way to help counteract that: a quick injection that promises to have you feeling hot and bothered in the best possible way.
It’s a quick injection that promises to have you feeling hot and bothered in the best possible way.
Known as the O-Shot (yes, “O” stands for orgasm), this procedure, which has been around since 2013, injects special blood components into your vagina that helps rev up nerves, collagen, and blood vessels “downtown.” Not only can this allegedly increase your ability to orgasm, but it can help with incontinence.
Let’s reiterate: The O-Shot does involve taking a needle in your clitoris. And not all doctors are believers. But according to these three women, it’s worth it.
“Even if your sex is already good, don’t you want it to be great?”
Testimonies about the O-Shot:
I don’t offer procedures to my patients unless I’ve done them myself, so while there, I volunteered to have one so I could feel how it worked. After going through menopause, my sensation had seriously diminished. It was a lot more difficult to enjoy intimacy. The O-Shot seemed simple enough so I decided to give it a try. Then the platelet-rich plasma was injected into the front wall of my vagina and clitoris.
First, a topical numbing cream was applied, then ice and a local anesthetic were used to further avoid any discomfort. Blood was drawn from my arm, like for any other blood test, and in a lab, my blood was spun so that the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which contains the growth factors needed to grow new tissue, was isolated. About 20 minutes later, the PRP was injected into the front wall of my vagina and clitoris.
Immediately afterwards, the area was a little more sensitive. That lasted the first day or so but it wasn’t a bad thing. It heightened the intensity of my orgasms!
Once you have an O-Shot, it takes about three weeks for the effects to kick in, with the full benefits occurring around three months. Even if your sexual sensation is good, it can be great.
On average, the O-Shot lasts about a year, but, luckily, having another one brings those feelings right back. — Carolyn DeLucia, 55
“Why accept what’s happening as we age if there’s a procedure that could help?”
I’m the biggest baby on the planet. I hyperventilate when it’s time for a flu shot. The idea of someone sticking a needle in my clitoris sounds awful. But three years ago, I did it anyway.
At the time, my libido was good bec
