The world's first vibrator was a 1734
wind-up model called the Tremoussoir.
The origin of the word “dildo” remains unclear. Most experts seem to think it’s derived from the Italian diletto, which means “pleasure” or “delight.” Others peg it on the Latin dilatare, which roughly translates to “dilate” or “open wide.” There’s also an old British folk song called “The Maid’s Complaint for Want of a Dil Doul,” and the words “dil doul” allegedly translate as “erect penis,” but fuck if I could find out from what language. Regardless of its derivation, it remains a crass, ugly word—“dildo.” It’s hard to sound classy and refined while saying it. Try it if you don’t believe me.

ElectroErotic Neon Wand - For Electrifying E-Stim
In 1653 Pieter van Foreest, called Alemarianus Petrus Forestus, published a medical compendium titled Observationem et Curationem Medicinalium ac Chirurgicarum Opera Omnia, with a chapter on the diseases of women. For the affliction commonly called hysteria (literally, "womb disease") and known in his volume as praefocatio matricis or "suffocation of the mother," the physician advised as follows:
When these symptoms indicate, we think it necessary to ask a midwife to assist, so that she can massage the genitalia with one finger inside, using oil of lilies, musk root, crocus, or [something] similar. And in this way the afflicted woman can be aroused to the paroxysm. This kind of stimulation with the finger is recommended by Galen and Avicenna, among others, most especially for widows, those who live chaste lives, and female religious, as Gradus [Ferrari da Gradi] proposes; it is less often recommended for very young women, public women, or married women, for whom it is a better remedy to engage in intercourse with their spouses.

Solar Charged Vibrator
One of the first vibrators was a steam-powered device called the "Manipulator", which was created by American physician George Taylor, M.D. This machine was a rather awkward device, but was still heralded as some relief for the doctors who found themselves suffering from fatigued wrists and hands...
The engineers who created this little honey must have worked, um, long and hard to get it right. We understand howit works—a fold-out solar panel heats it up—we’re just still trying to figure out the why. (Power-outages? Camping trips? The apocalypse?) $33.95 ::69 Love Toys
|Hello Kitty Vibrator|
Men will stick their dicks in anything, whether it’s their own hand, your mouth, an overripe cantaloupe, raw liver, a dead eel, or a hole in the wall. Unlike their delicate, intuitive, empathic, easily bruised sisters, men never seem to have a problem getting aroused and releasing their pent-up libidinal tensions. They may be laughably “dysfunctional” when it comes to pleasing a partner, but almost never when it comes to pleasing themselves. Men never seem to have trouble figuring out how to cum. After waking up one morning at age 13 with a stubborn, angry hard-on, they clutch the.....
In 1869, an American, George Taylor, invents a machine he calls the manipulator, which is basically a steam-powered, coal-fired vibrator.

"In the 1880s, in Britain, a fellow by the name of Joseph Mortimer Granille invents the modern electro mechanical vibrator that we all know and love, and it was attached to, because there was no line electricity in 1883, it was attached to this huge, 40-pound wet cell battery, slosh, slosh, that you had to tote around if you wanted to take it anywhere, and it was attached by these completely uninsulated wires, you look at them now and you go, "Ooh," and wrapped around these little brass posts....

Will I become addicted to my vibrator?
Some women need the intense and prolonged stimulation of a vibrator in order to reach orgasm. This does not mean they have become dependent on their toy any more than saying a woman with a broken leg is dependent on her crutch. In fact, you are not broken, but might need the stimulation for your first orgasms, or for quick orgasms, or for multi orgasms. Many women who have had their first orgasms with a vibrator find that having learned of their body’s response, they are better able to orgasm in other ways as well.

By 1900, an estimated 100 different vibrators had appeared on the market, most of them confined to the physician’s lair. They depended on anything from steam power to gas engines to air pressure to good ol’ glowin’ coal.
Tesla Turbine Power - Turbine POWER
Ani Niow built this steam powered vibrator (above). It has a milled stainless steel shell with a brass motor structure. The motor is a Tesla turbine made from a stack of Dremel diamond cutoff wheels. This drives an off-center weight to create the vibration. She tested it using a pressure cooker as the steam source. It worked, but became so hot it had to be held using welding gloves. It works just as well with compressed air though.
The model that everybody seems to like the best, the Chattanooga, which had to be shipped by freight because it was so heavy, it stood about 5 feet tall and in fact, it's in the Vibrator play, they **** from Sarah Wolfe's play. They've made a rooftop Chattanooga and it rolls on wheels and it had to have a huge counterweight, about this big, because with the vibratode attached to the vibrating head at about the five foot level, if you roll it up to the, roll it around, it would've fall over if it didn't have this counterweight...

On June 30, 1966, Jon H. Tavel applied for a patent for the "Cordless Electric Vibrator for Use on the Human Body", ushering in the modern personal vibrator. The patent application referenced an earlier patent dating back to 1938, for a flashlight with a shape that left little doubt as to a possible alternate use. The cordless vibrator was patented on March 28, 1968, and was soon followed by such improvements as multi-speed and one-piece construction, which made it cheaper to manufacture and easier
