Vibrators were found in Pompeii after an earthquake buried alive the vibrant city. The earthquake occurred in 79 AD but these sex toys have probably been in use for much longer than two thousand years. This illustrates how women need the assistance of something other than a male penis to achieve sexual satisfaction.
Sex toys for women were not always electronic but were designed to be vibrated manually within the body. It is estimated that only a third of women achieve organism in the same quick way that men do. Perhaps this is why sex toys have been discretely used for so many centuries in civilized societies.
In the Victoria era vibrators enjoyed a respectable status. They were used by doctors to treat hysteria. Anorexia Nervosa may have been known as ‘consumption’ then but masturbation has been recommended for that condition too. Victorian doctors reportedly grew weary of the time and effort required to bring about the condition now known as orgasm and welcomed the invention of an electronic vibrator which reduced the amount of time and effort required.
In 1960 a trial in the British High Court found that the novel, ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’ was not obscene. It had literary merit despite the fact that it was liberally laced with taboo words. This decision unleashed a sexual revolution in countries like sex toys Canada, America and Britain. The personal vibrator enjoyed a new lease on life, in the light of female acceptance of sexual pleasure as a legitimate need.
Apparently many electronic sex tools get on with the job more effectively than men do. The only baggage that they bring with them is some soft packaging and they can keep going for much longer than a man can. With the advent of the sexual revolution many new models have made their appearance and the picky woman can make her selection without fear of rejection or infidelity. She may choose from a wide range of colours, textures and sizes.
The rabbit family of vibrators have appendages that are designed to excite the vagina and clitoris simultaneously. They can keep going with more or less intensity until the ecstasy becomes unbearable. Newer versions can add a thrusting motion to what is already a fulsome sensation.
Some women like to have a sense of continual satisfaction as they wear an egg or bullet shaped dildo that vibrates mildly giving an ongoing sensation of pleasure. These may be slipped into handbags, or even disguised as a tube of lipstick.
Most modern vibrators are capable of high, low or medium speeds and levels will be capable of at least three levels of intensity. The g-spot vibrator will be curved in order to touch that tender spot just inside the vagina. It may be fashioned out of soft material and be coated with jelly or silicone.
The cell phone is a fairly recent invention that has many aptitudes to serve as a modern vibrator. It can be set to produce a pleasing buzz and has an excellent alibi for being carried around constantly. In the early twentieth century vibrators were sold as back massagers or electric torches, so not much has changed in this respect, since the sex toy days in Pompeii.
