Sex Stats! The History and Evolution of the Vibrator

Eever wondered how the vibrator came to be? I have its story! The history of the vibrator.

If you ever wondered how the vibrator came to be, I have its story! So wrap yourself in a blanket while I take you through the journey of the vibrator.

200AD: The Genital Massage

Once upon a time in 200AD physician and philosopher Galen of Pergamon prescribed genital massages to women who were suffering from hysteria. Hysteria was said to be a disease of a “wandering womb.” Cause, you know, women are hysterical and our uterus is the cause! So, give them an erotic massage? Yes!

1650-1666: Female Stimulating Doc’s

Fast forward to 1653 where Petrus Forestus of The Netherlands started fingering female patients who suffered from hysteria. They would massage the vulva and clitoris to help women achieve orgasm. Wait, is this even legal?!

1750: A Pelvic Douche

If fingering a woman fails, get her a douche! That’s what the French did. With the pelvic douche device, they sprayed water directly at a woman’s vagina. No wonder shower heads are still so popular.

1880: The First Electric Vibrator
