Have you ever wondered how long vibrators have been around? You would be surprised to learn about their origin and development over the years!
Believe it or not, the vibrator has been around for a long time. Its history spans many decades – even centuries. Of course, it’s initial purpose and origins were vastly different all those years ago…it certainly has come a long way in helping you cum!
The history of the vibrator dates back to the late 19th century, originally invented as a medical instrument for pain relief and the treatment of various ailments. Rumours have circulated on its exact use and the real purpose of what the intended goal was in the 1800’s by medical professionals. But regardless, it’s safe to say that its intended use was not what women have grown accustomed to in modern times.
It didn’t become the somewhat recognizable tool it’s known for today, until the 1960s, with the emergence of the sexual revolution. In the late ’60s, a patent for a cordless electric vibrator was approved and it was quickly improved upon. Specs such as multi-speed and one-piece construction were some of the more notable upgrades.
Nowadays, vibrators can be found in dozens of varying shapes, sizes, colours, styles, and can be found widespread all over the world.
Over 52% of women in the US have admitted to having used one (the real number is likely much higher). Its purpose has also evolved as it is now often used to enhance the pleasure of both partners – not just the woman.
What once was considered taboo or embarrassing is now widely accepted and commonly accepted in society. Masturbation and sexual stimulation is a perfectly natural behaviour and nothing anyone should ever be ashamed about. Have some fun with it – you deserve it!
