The Shocking History Of Vibrators

I recently came across an interesting article that focuses on the history of the modern vibrator.  If you’re looking for a fascinating read, check this out…

Until the 20th century, American and European men believed that
women were incapable of sexual desire and pleasure. Women of that era
basically concurred. They were socialized to believe that "ladies" had
no sex drive, and were merely passive receptacles for men’s unbridled
lust, which they had to endure to hang on to their husbands and have
children. Not surprisingly, these beliefs led to a great deal of sexual
frustration on the part of women.

Over the centuries, doctors prescribed various remedies for hysteria
(named for the Greek for "uterus"). In the 13th century, physicians
advised women to use dildos. In the 16th century, they told married
hysterics to encourage the lust of their husbands. Unfortunately, that
probably didn’t help too many wives, because modern sexuality research
clearly shows that most women rarely experience orgasm from
intercourse, but need direct clitoral stimulation. For hysteria
unrelieved by husbandly lust, and for widows, and single and unhappily
married women, doctors advised horseback riding, which, in some cases,
provided enough clitoral stimulation to trigger orgasm.

But many women found little relief from horseback riding, and by the
17th century, dildos were less of an option because the arbiters of
decency had succeeded in demonizing masturbation as "self-abuse."
Fortunately, an acceptable, reliable treatment emerged: having a doctor
or midwife "massage the genitalia with one finger inside, using oil of
lilies or crocus" as a lubricant. With enough genital massage,
hysterical women could experience sudden, dramatic relief through
"paroxysm," which virtually no medical authority called orgasm,
because, of course, everyone knew that women did not have sexual
feelings, so they could not possibly experience sexual climax.

You know, it never ceases to amaze me how little anyone knows about
female sexuality.  I mean – I know I am curious about it?  Were there
no other men throughout history into the va-jay-jay?
