Does a Hysterical Paroxysm come with that Vag treatment?

Not only are our ladyparts in need of tightening and trimming, they're also apparently out of shape. This, according to a story in the NY Times today about a new spa:

At the spa, the signature treatment will be a $150 gynecological exam — in which a client contracts her pelvic muscles around Dr. Romanzi’s fingers — to determine by feel whether muscle tone is weak, moderate or strong...

Clients could also use an in-office electrostimulation machine to improve pelvic muscle tone or buy a device for home use. Dr. Romanzi said that such treatments are intended to improve bladder control; she said pelvic training may also lead to more intense orgasms...

I don't know about you, but I don't want anything with the word 'electro' anywhere near my special place. But this does put me in mind of the delightful 19th-century treatment for female hysteria, wherein a doctor would use 'pelvic massage' to bring his patient to 'hysterical paroxysm" (which is Victorian for orgasm). The tiring nature of administering this treatment led to the invention of the vibrator and the rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks to Cynthia for telling me about the Times story and totally depressing me.
