Not a good idea...

The Orgasmatron lives.

Scientists at Oxford University - perhaps taking a cue from the device featured in Woody Allen's 1973 comedy "Sleeper" - have developed a "sex chip" that can stimulate pleasure centers in the brain.

While the current technology is crude, the researchers say that the device could be perfected within a decade.

"There is evidence that this chip will work," said neurosurgeon Tipu Aziz. "When the technology is improved . . . it will be more subtle, with more control over the power so you may be able to turn the chip on and off when needed."

"In 10 years' time the range of therapies available will be amazing," he said.
In 10 years' time the lawsuits will be amazing...says I. However, it would make a great party prank were someone to match the frequency codes on a remote.
