See Trains in the Membranes; Electrodes in the Brain!

You know how in movies and cheap-gag commercials, doctors doing cranial surgery can poke parts of a guy's brain, and he'll see himself being somewhere completely different?

Yep. It's a real thing now.

First he described seeing a railway station in the neighbourhood where he lives. Stimulation of a nearby area elicited another hallucination, this time of a staircase and a blue closet in his home. When stimulation of these areas was repeated, the same scenes arose.
Once they find the part of the brain recalling the last time you had a good lapdance, I'm guessing people will pay to own a remote control for the necessary electrode implantation.
