Top 10 vibrator facts

10 facts about the vibrator. From it origins to crazy uses.

Dont forget to check out or vibrator collection to see the modern version of this classic.

1) Before vibrators even existed, women’s hysteria (Latin word for “womb”) must have been rampant around 200 AD to the 1800’s. To treat this hysteria, doctors back then believed that “paroxysm” (also known as an orgasm) could help the uterus release fluid that caused female hysteria. To achieve this paroxysm, Galen of Pergamum prescribed genital massage, which essentially required fingers getting up in there with essential oils. Eventually in 1653, British surgeon Nathanial Highmore realized that it was the orgasm that was helping with female hysteria.

2) One of the first vibrators weighed 40 pounds and required at least two people to operate it. Because the female anatomy was still such a mystery, it was advised that treating “female hysteria” was only be done by a doctor in their office. There were early vibrators that were operable with a manual hand crank, but they quickly proved to take too long to achieve paroxysm. Vibrators even came in steam-powered form, anything to help make the man’s job easier.

3) Take a look at your toaster and see what brand it is. If Hamilton Beach makes your toaster, then you have a piece of vibrator history in your kitchen! In 1902, Hamilton Beach patented a handheld electric vibrator that was created for home use in treating female hysteria. They found their highest buying customers were unmarried women and widowed wives…interesting how those numbers turned out.

4) From the 1880’s until the 1920’s, vibrators were generally well accepted as treatment. In fact, women were encouraged to take care of themselves with vibrators whether it was through a doctor or “self treatment” at home. But as the adult entertainment industry began to gain notoriety, early images from the 1900’s began to utilize the vibrator as a prop, making it clear that paroxysm was really a pleasurable thing rather than something that required a medical professional. From then on, along with alcohol (Prohibition), vibrators were considered to be illegal and were taken off the market.

5) Remember the vibrator that Charlotte got addicted to on Sex and the City? Well, the Rabbit is a very real vibrator and it is no accident that it is shaped like an actual rabbit. It is illegal to manufacture sex toys in Japan that resemble a penis. So to skirt around the law, the Japanese manufacturers made it look like a cute, fuzzy animal instead. It’s a bit odd that the Rabbit was able to get by with that technicality, but many women all over the world are thankful for it.

6) Yes, you read that right, and no, it is not a joke. The most shocking thing on this list is about as far from sex and orgasms as you can get (unless you consider good singing a pleasurable experience). Drama professor David Ley works at the University of Alberta and has made major headlines because of his use of a vibrator to help his students with their singing techniques. Vocal chords depend on the relaxation of the larynx in order to produce a good sound, and because most of his students didn’t like the feeling of fingers, Ley went a different route. He found that hand held vibrators had the same frequency as the human voice (100-120 hertz) and started using them on the necks of his students. The results were astounding, and he has helped over 150 people improve their singing so far.

7) Sales in bondage toys reportedly increased by 50% after 50 Shades of Grey became popular.And Ben Wa balls, which are used for Kegel exercises, have had sales skyrocket by 350% because of the series.

8) Research has shown that women who use vibrators are more likely to visit the gynecologist for checkups, to achieve orgasm with or without a vibrator, and to have lower stress levels and fewer headaches than women who don’t use them. What’s not to like?

9) No two vaginas (or anuses) are alike, which is why sex-toy technicians have bequeathed us with a wide, wonderful, throbbing world of vibrators from which to choose. Some types, such as the monstrously sized and monstrously popular Hitachi Magic Wand, are sold as “back massagers” and are intended strictly for clitoral stimulation. Others are shaped like penises and are made for vaginal insertion. Some are waterproof, enabling you to rub one out in the shower or hot tub. The “rabbit” (more on that later) is two-pronged, with the larger prong for vaginal insertion and the smaller one for clitoral stimulation. Some are shaped to stimulate the G-spot or prostate gland. There are even “smart” vibrators than can be programmed over the Internet to include different vibration patterns and music to your self-pleasuring sessions.

Apples & Oranges

10) Indiana investigators reported results from a nationally representative study of 2,056 women and 1,047 men (age 18 to 60), showing that both sexes reaped rewards from vibrators. Slightly more than half of the women (53%) reported having tried a vibrator at some point in their lives, and nearly one in four had used one in the previous month. Researchers reported that the female respondents who used vibrators…

  • Experienced greater sexual desire and arousal, better natural lubrication and enhanced ease of orgasm during sex overall, compared with those who said they had not ever used a vibrator.
  • Were more likely to have had a gynecological exam in the past year and to have performed gynecological self-examination in the preceding month.

Somewhat less than half (45%) of the men surveyed reported having used vibrators (one in 10 in the past month). These male users…

  • Rated themselves higher on measures of sexual function, such as the ability to achieve and sustain an erection, and reported greater satisfaction with intercourse than nonusers.
  • Were more likely to report participation in sexual health-promoting behaviors, such as examining their testicles for signs of cancer.
