Did you say bizarre? Here are some more references that are more directly
Sem-Jacobsen, C. W. (1968). Depth-electrographic stimulation of the human
brain and behavior: From fourteen years os studies and treatment of
Parkinson's disease and mental disorders with implanted electrodes.
Springfield, Ill. C.C. Thomas.
Check out the journal on this one:
Bishop, M.P., S.T. Elder, R.G. Heath (1963). Intracranial self-stimulation
in man. Science 140: 394-6.
Higgins, J.W., G.F. Mahl, J.M.R. Delgado, and H. Hamlin (1956). Behavioral
changes during intracerebral electrical stimulation. Arch. Neurol.
Psychiat., (Chicago), 76: 399-419.
According to Delgado, both the Sem-Jacobsen and Higgins papers report
orgasm or sexual pleasure induced by stimulation of specific sites.
