was discovered accidentally – by a husband trying to help his wife.
After 5 years of trying to get pregnant, the miracle finally occurred for Steve and Wendy McGough. Tragically in the last few months of the pregnancy Wendy was exposed to an antibiotic resistant bacteria. Complications forced her to have an emergency c-section. Sadly their son Lucas only lived a day. It took Wendy a long time to recover, but now was dealing with painful tissue adhesion’s from the surgery.
How do you relieve c-section pain?
Steve had studied various types of massage in the past and was familiar with surface tissue adhesion’s, but this was deep inside her abdomen. He researched everything he could think of that might help, and finally came up with an abdominal massage technique that helped reduce her pain. But it wasn’t easy to do, especially to maintain the vigorous massage for 5-10 minutes continuously. So he started looking for massage devices that might help. Nothing did what was needed, so he worked on designing something that could mimic the technique. Later he wondered if a device could gently “shake” the ligaments that supported the uterus, maybe that would transfer the massage far enough into her belly to help. After a year of designing and building units he found something that worked well.
The abdominal massage device had an unexpected “side effect”
What he didn’t realize was the device had a very unexpected “side effect”. The women who volunteered to test it kept having orgasms… through their clothing… just by holding the device over their abdomen and pelvis. This “side effect” fascinated him because the stimulation of the original devices had been only through the abdomen, and women were often describing the feeling of a “g-spot” orgasm.
Steve had previously worked in neuroscience research. Based on past experience and what “should” be going on, this didn’t make sense. He reviewed textbooks and studies on the related nerves (pelvic, pudendal, hypogastric, vagus, sacral, etc.) that might be involved, and how different types of external stimulation could be affecting them. It occurred to him that the various nerves responded to different types and frequencies of stimulation.
Over time he refined the method and device and created a system that can be used to help women relax when dealing with a variety of women’s challenges. The new system not only gave abdominal massage, but targeted multiple nerves simultaneously, in the optimal way to stimulate them.
Some parts of women’s wellness are still taboo – especially in the South
However, they lived in North Carolina and soon discovered that while the device profoundly helped women relax when dealing with a variety of female challenges, the “side effect” was far, far more “taboo” than they realized. Steve first contacted MD’s he knew from past years in research. While they were equally fascinated with what was going on, they said “fully clothed or not” there was no way they could get research funding for a device that also caused that “side effect”.
Investors wanted to eliminate the “side effect”
Steve had also been involved in the regional IT industry, and contacted investors he knew. At first they didn’t think it was real, but when he provided devices to prove it was, most were either offended or horrified. His investor friends repeatedly warned him to abandon it “before it destroyed his reputation”. This seemed crazy since it was used fully clothed and helped women so dramatically. Several groups mocked him and then became very angry when he questioned how something so helpful could be so terrible. One group even told them if they could eliminate the “side effect” it might be a possibility for investment.
Refusing to abandon it, they ended up going on a journey across the United States, to the Caribbean and Asia. After seven years of research and refinement (& testing on well over 2000 women), something was created that gives women a completely new way to relax. Steve became a professor of clinical sexology in San Francisco and the method (and device) has been patented in the United States and Australia. Patents are pending in the European Union, and Canada.
How can this discovery be presented so women aren’t embarrassed?
However, setup for product manufacturing was very expensive (typically $800K – $1M). They had received offers from adult related investment groups, and personally didn’t find anything wrong with the adult areas. But they felt that focusing just on adult areas would take the product down a path that would make it seem “taboo” and “embarrassing” just like the Southern groups viewed it. This technology was something new and helped women relax in many ways far beyond the sexual areas. They felt “hi” shouldn’t be embarrassing for women to talk about openly. Hopefully it would help them become more comfortable with other aspects of their lives.
Fortunately they met Greg Fisher, the CEO of Berkeley Sourcing Group, LLC. Greg was a visionary product Developer and realized its potential for helping women. His turn-key product development company finalized the designs and setup manufacture in Asia.
Together with Greg, and his amazing team of mostly female designers and engineers in China they created they created this version of hi®.
hi® helps women and couples experience completely new ways to relax, connect, and live life more fully. It took a long time to create, but we think you’ll find it was well worth it.
Follow Up. . . Miracles happen! After being told they had virtually no chance of getting pregnant, 5 years later Wendy started getting very weird symptoms none of her specialist could figure out. The symptoms continued to get worse and 24 weeks later a nurses assistant commented, hmm it sounds like you might be pregnant. The MD’s gave the assistant a harsh look because they didn’t want Wendy’s feeling hurt as that wasn’t possible. Driving home Steve & Wendy stopped & picked up a pregnancy kit and… AND THEY WERE PREGNANT! 16 weeks later they had an amazing little girl!
