Vibrators: Out of Porn, Into Our Bedrooms

Most people do not realize it, but vibrators were not originally designed as sex toys but as a medical device. In those bad old days, many women did not have pleasurable or free sex lives, and they were frustrated by husbands and lovers who did not understand how to please them. Even worse, if a woman found her self unmarried there were far fewer options available for sexual release — she could not simply log onto a personals site or go down to the local singles bar to find some fun. Masturbation was also considered especially evil. One can imagine that many women were extremely frustrated, probably to the point of almost feeling insane. While the solution might seem obvious — teach men to be better lovers — instead it was turned into a pathology called hysteria. Male doctors cured this by masturbating women to orgasm, which was known as a hysterical paroxysm. Frustrated, somehow, by wanking women all day they invented the vibrator.

Of course not everyone believed in the myth of hysteria and there were those out there who had learned what fucking is all really about. Though the home version of the vibrator was sold in respectable mail order catalogs it soon found its way into porn. People began to realize what was really going on, and while the men secretly enjoyed watching hysterical paroxysms in their private drinking rooms while watching early adult video called stag films, these devices soon became more forbidden until returning to prominence in the liberate 1960s.

They’ve been growing in popularity since then, and of course today it is more than just the porn star who enjoys these devices. They are found in a very high percentage of bedrooms of women both single, married, and in committed relationships. Among the more open minded couples they are a regular part of sexual play, adding much pleasure to women.
