When There's a Market...

Just when you thought you'd heard it all. Here's another way to be parted with your hard earned cash ladies. Is you partner complaining about the amount of time it takes for you to have an orgasm? NBC4 reports, that for a mere $1850 every four months, you can have collagen injected into your vagina to "augument your g-spot." Unnamed consumers testify to miraculous results on the provider's website. The California physician who developed the procedure declares he can't keep up with the demand. Before you decide you can't live without a G-shot, keep in mind that this is an "off-labeled" use of collagen and there are no clinical studies to support the effectiveness of this procedure. The website claims that injecting collagen in the vagina should have the same safety profile as collagen injections for urinary incontenence (which has received approval from the FDA). While the website reports that collagen is "natural" -- I suppose because it's collected from other people's bodies -- there are no less than 68 risks listed on the website. Now, if we can just get our health insurance companies to cover it like Viagra!
