The origin of sex toys and sexual lubricants

Vibrator 1869Used more as a medical aid rather than for pleasure, the vibrator was used to treat hysterical women by masturbating them. Confused? Well that’s what happened in the Victorian era. Female Hysteria was recognized as an illness and women with such a condition were treated by qualified medical professionals by rubbing the private parts of a woman until orgasm was achieved. Since doctors found it boring and began to complain about wrist aches, George Taylor came up with a steam powered vibrator. This model failed to catch until J. Granville invented an electrochemical version in 1880. This version of the device was soon a hit among house wives who bought it as “medical treatment”. However once this device began to feature in porn shows on TV, husbands soon caught up to the real purpose of the “medical” magic that the device brought and ultimately forbade their wives from using or buying them.
