Sex toys were once used to cure diseases
In the 1990s, when it was still popular in China to have four major items for marriage (refrigerator, TV, air conditioner and washing machine), in the technologically advanced UK, in addition to having the "four major items", almost every family also A vibrator is a must.
Can't think of it? The vibrator was invented more than 100 years ago. It has been improved and passed down to this day. It can be seen that there are many contributions.
So what was it used for at the time? How has it been played badly so far? In fact, its development history is not complicated at all. The purpose of its original invention was to solve the physiological needs of women.
It doesn't matter how long the era is, a vibrator is a vibrator!
Origin of vibrator
In the Victorian period of the 19th century, a hysterical disease was popular among European women. Generally, repeated emotional changes, abnormal behavior, fatigue, depression and other symptoms were diagnosed by doctors as having this disease.
And doctors at the time believed that hysteria was mainly caused by the uterus not being sexually satisfied, causing various health problems. So men will not get hysteria (the idea of the ancients is not very magical).
How to treat it? It sounds miraculous, but you have to believe that the gynecologist's treatment is to help patients meet the needs of the uterus through their hands...and male doctors.
According to some historians, female patients were indeed prescribed pelvic massage to release their hysterical ailments by reaching orgasm.
However, the premise of treatment is that you must be married, if you are not married, you can only find a way by yourself. Don't be surprised that many women went to the doctor with their husbands at the time.
Now, you might think this is a ridiculous lie, full of Freudian eroticism.
But the doctors at that time didn't enjoy it at all, and even said they were too tired. A doctor with good manual skills treats a dozen or twenty patients a day, and it takes about an hour for each patient, which can make their fingers cramp and sore throughout the day.
It was not until the end of the 19th century that Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville invented the vibrator, which completely liberated the hands of doctors.
With the help of the vibrator, doctors can see a female patient in 5 minutes, and the efficiency is greatly improved.
By the early 20th century, vibrators began to appear in various magazines and newspapers, and the shapes began to become diverse. Women could buy a personal vibrator for a few dollars, so fewer women went to the hospital for pelvic massages, and vibrator sales skyrocketed.
Later, the disease of hysteria was also detoxified, and there was no problem for women.
Later, with the use of vibrators in erotic movies, no one regarded it as a purely medical tool, and doctors stopped using vibrators as a therapeutic device because of their sexual implications.
Since then, the vibrator has caught the car of sex toys, and it has been out of control.
Bosses who saw business opportunities began to develop various shapes of vibrators. From the bulky and unbeautiful shapes in the 1920s to the fashionable and compact in the 21st century, designers and manufacturers have continued to improve, and the appearance of the vibrator has finally changed. More and more like sex toys.
In the 1920s, the shape of the vibrating rod still looked like a hair dryer, and it was also called an electric drill. In the 1930s, some metal parts were replaced by silicone materials.
In the 1940s, the inspiration for the design of the vibrator came from the scalp massager used by the hairdresser. At that time, women found that this massager could be used for other purposes... But to be honest, Mr. Xiang didn't understand how to operate it at all. .
In the 1950s, the vibrator of this period was already adjustable in speed and smaller than before.
In the 1960s, the first vibrating rod that could achieve internal and external resonance was born.
The vibrators of the 70s and 80s became more visible, with smoother materials. One of the most popular is the Rabbit Habit brand, which also appeared in the American drama "Sex and the City".
From the 1990s to the 21st century, the vibrator began to be made of top-grade silicone material and has waterproof effects. It is very convenient in terms of size and appearance.
The vibrator we see today is really much better looking and more powerful than the one a hundred years ago.
