How to perform Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)  from your bottom (pelvic floor) with VIP Cream , of course, without an electronic pulse generator?

VIP Cream                       

Believe it or not: stimulating your bottom can turn on your top, that is your brain, via the nervous freeway – the vagus nerve.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is a stimulation of huì yīn會陰 and cháng qiáng 長強from inside. You don’t need a acupuncture needle either!

Vagus Nerve Stimulation can lighten up the central dopaminergic function on the limbic system and the dopamine rewarding circuit – and brain’s reward system mainly includes glutamatergic interneurons, GABAergic medium spiny neurons, dopaminergic projection neurons, and orexinergic projection neurons, associated with eating, drinking and sex.  VNS affects most of the neurons in the brain’s rewarding system.  The dopaminergic neurons and glutaminergic interneurons are responsible for instantaneous responses to any physical and psychological stimulations,  particularly, in work place, dangerous encounters, and bedroom (love encounters), as described in

There are 4 major dopaminergic pathways in the human’s brain to be improved by VNS:

  1. The mesolimbic pathway, a dopaminergic pathway,  plays
    a central role in neurobiology of addiction, schizophrenia, and depression.
  2. The tuberoinfundibular pathway is  a population of dopamine
    neurons regulate the secretion of prolactin from the anterior
    pituitary gland.
  3. The nigrostriatal pathway is a dopaminergic pathway that
    connects the substantia nigra with the dorsal striatum.
  4. The mesocortical pathway, a dopaminergic pathway in the
    frontal lobe( located at the front of the brainin) is essential
    to the normal cognitive function of the dorsolateral
    prefrontal cortex (part of the frontal lobe), and involved in
    cognitive control, motivation, and emotional response

VNS has been used to improve the following conditions:

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  •  Migraines
  • Mood disorders in elderly population
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Myocarditis
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Obesity
  • Parkison’s syndromes
  • Peripheral arterial occlusion disease
  • Postoperative cognitive dysfunction in elderly patients
  • Rasmussen’s encephalitis
  • Severe mental diseases
  • Sepsis
  • Sexual disorders
  • Spinal trigeminal neuronal
  • Tinnitus
  • Transient focal cerebral ischemia

Here, we use VNS to enhance the erectile function and the orgasmic contraction of the smooth muscle inside the pelvic organs or outside such as the clitoris and  the penis. Apply VIP cream to massage the clitoris, the vagina, the anus and the penis for 5-10 minutes couple times a day. Or apply it to the vulva and the vagina or the penis during copulation.

About 0.5-1.0 inches Inside the vagina or anal cavity, the skeletal muscle and the smooth muscle meet together. In the vagina canal, the meeting (cross-talk) zone is called the G-spot,  and in the anal canal, it is called Dantate Line with a transition in Anal Columns of Morgagni.   In side the vaginal canal, the vagus and autonomic nerves are inside the epithelium of  the smooth muscle. In the anal canal,  if you massage the front side of the anal transition zone against the acupuncture point huì yīn會陰, you will directly stimulate the vagus nerve via the adjacent reproduction organs as well as the inferior hypogastric nerves (mainly from the spinal nerves L1-L3, lumbar sympathetic nervous plexus) , and the splanchnic nerves (sacral parasympathetic nervous plexus) and the pudental nerves (the sacral somatic nervous plexus for skeletal pelvic muscle around the anus, testicle suspension ligament, and vagina along with the sympathetic fibers to the smooth muscle in the testicles, clitoris and penis ) that  originates from the lumbo-sacral plexus (lumbar L4 and sacral S2-S4).  Massaging the back of the anus toward the acupuncture point  cháng qiáng 長強 stimulates the splanchnic and pudental nerves that arise from sacral spinal nerves S2-S4.  The stimulation of the autonomic nerves (parasympathetic nerves from sacral sections S2-S4, and sympathetic nerves from lumbar discs L1-L3)  in the epithelium of the anal canal transitions,  from colonic and rectal simple columnar epithelium to stratified squamous epithelium,  can also release prostaglandins and nitric oxide to excite the vagal sensory nerve in the lower section of colon, known as the sigmoid colon transitions into the rectumA deeper stimulation of the anus-rectum can directly activate the vagus nerve and inferior hypogastric nerve in the smooth muscle of  the sigmoid colon transitions. However, the direct stimulation can damage the rectum lining.  Noticeably, the average length of the human rectum may range between 10 and 15 cm, about the averaged penis length.  For this reason, anal sex lets some women experience powerful orgasms as a result of the direct vagus nerve stimulation on the sigmoid colon transition.  A gentle,  shallow anal stimulation relies on the cros-stalk  among prostaglandins, nitric oxide, neurohormones and nerves to achieve VNS in the internal genital organs or  the  sigmoid colon transition.

The vagus nerve, pelvic/sacral splanchnic nerves,  and lumbar inferior hypogastric nerves are activated by the transient receptor potential channels which are mechano-and chemo-sensors on visceral afferents (sensory neurons.) Therefor, it is not necessary to exert a heavy stimulation for turn on the delicate tissues.(; )

Massaging both right and left side of the anus stimulates the sacral pudental nerve, The pudental nerve located the sacrospinous ligament, near the tailbone and extends from the sacral plexus, through the pudendal canal, into the genital regions, the perineum, and the gluteal area.  Although the pudental nerve mainly carry the somatic motor and sensory fibers to the skeletal muscle around the anus and the entire pelvic floor, but it also supplies the sympathetic fibers for penile and clitoral erection and ejaculation or orgasm contraction. It is responsible for bowel and urinary continence control and genital sensation. Pelvic Splanchic Nerve and Pudental NervePudendal nerve, course and branches

You can stimulate the somatic, vagus and automatic nerves at the same time by massaging the smooth muscle or the transition zone with VIP Cream. Please be aware that directly massaging the smooth muscle can damage it. It is preferred to do it on the transition zone where the mixed tissue is stronger and stiffer than the pure smooth muscle.female genital-anusAnanl ColumnSuccess requires responsiveness, endurance, and persistence with a short recovery time.  VNS can help you become very responsive. You need it in the first place. To extend the VNS effects on  your endurance and persistence, you need androgen hormones, such as DHEA, testosterone and DHT,  to continuously burn. But, How?; Why?
The gonadal / androgen hormones are essential for physical and mental strength, but they exert primarily slow, genomically mediated effects. In most of the typical working places such as offices, fields, and/or even bedroom, you may need fast responsiveness and prolonged endurance to achieve your goal and to complete your task. A faster responsiveness with calmness can only be achieved by nervous action from the dopamine, glutamate and serotonin system, with a good blood circulation, provided by the arterial relaxation and dilation from the NO (nitric oxide)- cGMP (cyclic guanosine 3′,5′-monophosphate) signaling pathway, and by stress reduction. 
A good blood circulation will continuously supply gonadal hormones to the working muscles (including smooth muscles) and joints to support the physical and mental endurance for your act.
The endurance also requires flexibility of muscles joints without worrying about inflammatory pains. We have found a high dose of Omega-3 Fish Oil (about 3000 mg omega-3 fatty acids) with 81 mg Aspirin is very helpful.
Overall, our products ViaGrowth-IV, MoodMax, DopaFibra, ArgiNOx and Omega-3 Fish Oil can help you to have better responsiveness and endurance and faster recovery.
By the way, our stress reduction formulas are PinealTonin or 5-HTP, as described in
Stress reduction can indirectly improve your endurance and directly reduce performance anxiety.

Dopamine vs Male HormonesSex benefit women in many ways which include VNS inside the vagina; on the cervix, uterus and bladder; and on the clitoral shaft and glans, the bulbocavernosus, and the
ischiocavernosus that contain erectile smooth muscle and are
innervated by the the vagus nerves and parasympathetic
nervous from S2-S4 and sympathetic nerves from L1-L-3.

Coitus with a hard, hot penis can provide a powerful blending stimulation on the nerves in the cervix, the uterus, and the bladder internally; and on  the clitoral shaft and glans, the bulbocavernosus, and the  ischiocavernosus, externally when using the 3-point excitation love position (also in ) or the screwing method (by him) (or by her.)


For men, the VNS stimulation during sex is limited to the penile shaft and glans,  the ischiocavernosus around the penile root inside the pelvic floor,  and the prostate. MalePelvic4

Beside coitus , VNS can be achieved by massaging the acupuncture points, huì yīn會陰 and cháng qiáng 長強 with an insertion of a 0.5-inches finger section into the anus or/and into the vagina (for women),  with VIP Cream.

By the way, Anal Breathing QiGong exercises (also in ) can help you directly stretch the bulbocavernosus (for women) and the ischiocavernosus (for both men and women.).  I want you to know Anal Breathing Sexual Qigong Exercises directly link genital organs to the brain, particularly the central dopamine (DA), noradrenaline (NE), and serotonin (5-HT) nervous systems (review papers given in and ) , and the endocrine function for hGH, DHEA, testosterone and DHT production.

Special Reference for  the Somato-vagal, Somato-parasympathetic, and Samto-sympathetic Nervous Cross-talk: the stimulation of the pelvic muscles simultaneously activate somato-parasympathetic, somato-vagal and somato-sympathetic reflex arcs (nervous cross-talk in the inter-neurons).
