Hysteria, for those who aren’t aware, is a condition accompanied by symptoms such as
anxiety, insomnia, nervousness, erotic fantasies, and wetness between the legs. It was
assumed that the vibrator would somehow relax the lady in question, returning her to
2. THE FIRST ELECTRONIC VIBRATOR IN 1902
In 1902 at Hamilton Beach, the first electronic vibrator was patented. The funny
thing concerns the timing of the patent – it turns out this electronic vibrator was
the first domestic appliance to be electronically patented after the sewing machine,
toaster, and kettle. A natural progression one might assume?
3. TOP 10 SEX TOYS USERS IN DIFFERENT STATES
Believe it or not, sex toys are actually banned in the US state of Alabama. Any idea
why? Well, let’s ask the assistant attorney general, who in 1999, replied that “there
is no fundamental right for a person to buy a device to produce orgasm”. That’s right
assistant attorney general, thanks for the reminder. This craziness is not just limited
to Alabama, as it’s illegal to own more than 6 dildos in Texas!
4. SEX TOY COSTS?
Any idea how much the most expensive sex toy costs? Maybe $500? Nah, nowhere
near. You’ll need to dig deep into your pockets to purchase the $55,000 white gold
vibrator, embedded with 117 diamonds. Although fear not, as you’re sure to enjoy
the most expensive organism in orgasmic history.
5. SEX TOYS BENEFITS……
During a recession, you invariably expect people to spend less and converse more.
However, this wasn’t entirely true of the latest recession with the sex toy industry
booming in recent years. The only viable explanation for such a commercial surge
is the pleasure one receives to offset the negativity of job losses and economic
stagnation. Either way, it’s great to see at least one industry benefiting from the
6. 1900 ELECTRONIC VIBRATORS INTRODUCES PERSONAL MASSAGER
As electronic vibrators became more and more common from the 1900s onwards,
they actually started to appear in advertisements from the 1920s. Believe it or not,
this practice continued until well into the 1970s until they were finally pulled from
advertisements. I can only assume it wasn’t deemed appropriate for adults. Indeed,
they were described in the advertisements as “personal massagers”.
7. 30,000 YEARS OLD DILDO!
The oldest reported dildo is a phenomenal 30,000 years old! Yes – that’s well before.
The last Ice Age by 20,000 years. Shocking stuff, you’d think they would have more
sense! Archaeologists discovered the find after unearthing it from the depths of a
German cave. It must have been a climactic find for the researchers!
It looks like vibrator use should be promoted among women. Research conducted
reveals that women who regularly use vibrators score significantly higher on the
Female Sexual Function Index scale. The purpose of this scale is to determine how
much pleasure women get from sex, so ladies, vibrators are the way to go!
9. Who is more likely to use a vibrator?
Single ladies or married ladies? What do you think? Well, it turns out that married
women are twice as likely to use a vibrator. Indeed, statistics show that 78% of women
who have used a sex toy said that they were in a relationship. The good thing, however,
is that the same study showed that men really aren’t threatened by vibrators, so ladies
can relax even more!
10. MOST POPULAR SEXY TOY
The most popular sexy toy by far is the vibrator with 19.2%. Any idea what’s in
second place…well, it’s the rubber penis at 16%. In last place unfortunately is
bondage gear which only accounts for 2% of sex toy use. Although, sex toys wouldn’t
be as popular if people purchased the first vibrators; which weighed a grand total
of 40 pounds and actually required 2 people to operate. There are all the facts and
figures you’ll ever need to know about sex toys!
