The History of the Vibrator

From NewsFilter.org: A book by Rachel P. Maines called The Technology of Orgasm: "Hysteria," the Vibrator, and Women's Sexual Satisfaction. Maines originally found ads for electromechanical vibrators in magazines from the turn of the century when she was researching needlework She discovered that water-powered, steam-powered and hand-cranked vibrators were in clinical use as early as the 1860s. By the 1880s, electromechanical vibrators were common, and by 1900 they were marketed for home use. Full Story.
