Restrained in this way, such a person—subject to unethical behavior in a quasi-medical setting—could easily become pray to sexually abusive men and women, particularly if the 'call-button' has been moved out of reach. In the head-down, buttocks-up position, a voiceless female patient wouldn't be able to call out, prevent such attack or even see her molester. The 'stent' described in the story is a real surgical tool, designed to force open delicate tissue for healing purposes and can be placed internally or externally. I have personal experience with wives who decided to have sexual 'flings,' and then excused themselves with justifications, excuses, rationalizing and dry-eyed crying, as described in this tale - masking emotional decisions of immediate desire with pseudo-intellectual ones, in order to appear more innocent when caught or to put blame upon the husband or boyfriend. The hyper sexual behavior described here also called nymphomania is uncommon in women, but not rare - such a woman can engage in multiple sex acts and then, in an instant, revert to more normal behavior and never think of herself as a whore or slut.
