* While not strictly related to pleasure, personal electroshock therapy units, such as TENS units, can have this effect by providing almost-instant relief for muscle aches and related pain. So, not truly gratification, at least not when used properly (in fact, you [[PowerPerversionPotential cannot buy one]] without a doctor's note), but instant ''relief''.

* Fuji from ''{{Stormwatch}}'' is an EnergyBeing who's kept in a containment suit so that he doesn't dissipate into nothingness. Due to the conditions of his suit and the constant buffeting of his nervous system by his own energy, he has an orgasm every five minutes. No wonder he's so happy.

* In the ''SecretSix'' miniseries, it was revealed that the long-time Franchise/{{Batman}} foe, the Mad Hatter, long known for his mind-control hats, had worked out a way to ''reverse'' the mind-control effect. This stimulated his pleasure centers and led to him becoming a "hat addict" (and even crazier than he was originally).
