1. The Vibrating Rabbit’s Origin Tale

Our journey begins with the iconic Rabbit vibrator, born in 1983 with an identity crisis. Why, you ask? Japanese manufacturers weren’t allowed to create standard vibrators. So, they got creative and designed this pleasure-inducing marvel in the shape of a rabbit. “Hoppy” endings indeed!

2. A Prehistoric Pleasure

You might think adult toys are a modern invention, but our ancestors knew how to have a good time too. The world’s oldest-known dildo, dating back a jaw-dropping 30,000 years, was discovered in a German cave. Even the ancient Greeks had their own version of “dildo breadsticks” as early as 400 B.C. Talk about timeless pleasures!

3. Trembling Through History

Picture this: 1734 in France, the birthplace of one of the earliest vibrators—the Tremoussoir. But hold onto your hats; the first electric vibrator was a 40-pound beast, invented by Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville to relieve muscle aches. Two people were needed to operate it, and that’s not even including the recipient! Now that’s what we call a workout.

4. The Vibrator: A Doctor’s Delight

Did you know that vibrators were initially prescribed by doctors to treat hysteria in women? Symptoms included “anxiety, sleeplessness, irritability, nervousness, erotic fantasies, feelings of heaviness in the lower abdomen, and wetness between the legs.” Doctors before vibrators resorted to an even more peculiar method—massaging women’s genitals with vegetable oil until climax. Talk about a hands-on approach to medicine!

5. Electrifying Beginnings

In 1902, Hamilton Beach patented the first electric vibrator, making it the first electrified domestic appliance—right alongside the sewing machine, toaster, and fan. Shockingly enough, vibrators were slyly advertised as “personal massagers.” Because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t need a relaxing massage now and then?

6. Alabama’s Climactic Dilemma

Alabama has had a no-nonsense policy on sex toys since 1999, declaring there’s no fundamental right to purchase devices for orgasmic purposes. Well, it seems like Alabama might be the place where “rolling in the hay” takes on a whole new meaning.

7. A ‘Limiting’ Law in Texas

In the Lone Star State, the law has its limits. Texas has a rule in place that states you can’t own more than six dildos. Remember, everything might be bigger in Texas, but that doesn’t apply to your personal toy collection!

8. The Vibrator Revolution

One in three American women owns a vibrator, and over 52% have given these buzz-worthy gadgets a whirl. Vibrators have even been found to boost scores on the Female Sexual Function Index. Who knew a little buzz could go a long way?

9. The Battle of the Bedroom

In a LiveScience study from 2011, 37% of women believed men felt intimidated by women’s vibrator use. However, the truth is that a whopping 70% of men were totally fine with it. Turns out, sharing is caring when it comes to pleasure!

10. The Clitorati’s Choice

When it comes to reaching cloud nine, 83.8% of sex toy buyers prefer toys designed for clitoral stimulation over any other options. Dildos come in second place, with 64% of users opting for a little extra penetration. It’s all about finding the right button to push!
