The History of the Vibrator

Vibrators were first manufactured in the U.S. in 1904 by the Hamilton Beach Blender Company. What will you think of the next time you see a blender? Initially, vibrators were used by doctors to cure women who were suffering from hysteria. The doctor would masturbate her on the exam table until she reached orgasm which releases endorphins which would calm the woman. Once vibrators were used in sexually oriented movies doctors discontinued their use in their offices.

Until the 1920's vibrators were advertised in national women's magazines as massagers for the face. These massagers came in all sizes. Did we really need a 12" face massager? However, our society at that time was not as open to talk about sex as we are today.

The vibrator reinvented itself as a "sex toy" during the 1950's and 1960's. We can now find vibrators in all colors, shapes and sizes. Sex toys, creams and lingerie continue to be a growing market. Satisfying the law of supply and demand.

So when your women says she needs to get laid. What she really means is that she needs an orgasm. The endorphins that she releases give her a high that cannot be substituted in any other way. Whether or not you as a couple are into sex toys or response creams the orgasm is a powerful influence in your woman's happiness.
