Some customers also donated their collections to the store for display. With the birth of eBay, 36 years later, her small collection has grown into the size of a museum, including 120 vintage histories of the vibrator. It also comes with a variety of manuals and print ads, even various The surrounding products of the history of the vibrator have found their place to stay. Today, this museum has become the world's most complete gathering place for human orgasmic triggers.

History of the vibrator--museum exhibits

Museum curator Dr. Carol Queen showed us a variety of ancient vibrations of the history of the vibrator, lined up in transparent glass boxes. Much of her own knowledge of the history of the vibrator is derived from Rachel P. Maines's book "Technology of Orgasm:" Hysteria ", history of the vibrator and female sexual satisfaction. This book underpins the museum's philosophy, and Curator Queen embodies the concept and completes the museum.

"It's one thing to think of the history of the vibrator as a sex toy, but to figure out how many histories of the vibrator there are in these decades, that's another matter entirely," she told me. "Because studying this history means understanding the design changes and industry changes of this particular household history of the vibrator."

In fact, the history of the vibrator itself has a long history, and its story begins with the so-called "hysteria" (hysteria) that disappeared from medical textbooks in 1952. For centuries, hysteria has been a disease easily accessible to women. In fact, it is a lonely disease that lacks sex. As long as they are satisfied, the disease is fine. But the problem is, the women of that year didn't even know that they could orgasm, so they needed some external force. Thanks to the existence of this antique history of the vibrator museum, we can get a rough idea of ​​the history of the vibrator.

200 AD: Genital Massage

The physician and philosopher Galen of the ancient Pagama country prescribed hysteria for genital massage. He wrote that dysentery is caused by the too active uterus. "Hysteritis is completely treated as a gynecological disease," Dr. Queen said. "Some critics even use it as a sexual term, because virgins and widows get sick more than married women."

Petrus Forests began massaging patients with finger oils in 1653 to get them to "paroxysm." Later British surgeon Nathaniel Highmore quickly understood the term, but he put "orgasm ( orgasm) "is a high-end atmosphere. The specific method of treating hysteria is the doctor massages the patient's vulva and clitoris until the patient reaches a "hysterical relief", but in fact, according to Dr. Queens, "only a few doctors report that they can make patients orgasm through this kind of treatment. "
