The vibrator is a nifty little device that has brought pleasure to millions of people all over the world for many years. But I bet there are a lot of things you never knew about them. Here are a few things about the vibrating female sex toys that you might never have guessed.

Vibrator Trivia

The vibrator was invented in 1883, by a British physician, Joseph Granville. The electromechanical device was marketed as a “hysteria” remedy. Hysteria was, to stuffy Victorians, a nervous condition characterized by heart rate increases, fantasies of a sexual nature, “heaviness” of the pelvis, lubrication of the vagina, etc. What they didn’t realize was that women get horny, too, and that it’s perfectly natural and acceptable! When pornographic films started being produced in the 1930s and featured women being masturbated with vibrating female masturbation toys, there was a public outcry that condemned these sex toys for women as immoral. It took another thirty years until vibrators reappeared, and the AMA finally got some sense and declared that “hysteria” was actually the female orgasm and not a medical malady. Idiots!

When the Rabbit sex toy for girls was mentioned on a famous episode of Sex and the City in 1998, its popularity skyrocketed. It became the best-selling sex toy in the world, and still holds that title today.

Sex toys, including most vibrating types, are classified by government health and manufacturing standards as “novelties,” meaning that their materials are not governed as strictly as actual medical devices. What does this mean for your personal health? Since there have been several toxic chemicals discovered in cheaply-made sex toys, especially from China, it is best to make sure you are careful in which female sex toys you buy. Only buy one that is certified as phthalate-free, because these chemicals which are used to soften plastic used in sex toys has been linked to incidences of infertility and even cancer! Only buy your sex toys from a well-known company that certifies its sex toys as 100% safe and made from top materials. Even if they’re more expensive, it is worth the cost if it saves your health, right?

Women over the age of 40, especially those who are pre- or post-menopausal, need good, strong female masturbation toys to preserve their sexual appetite and even their physical health! Sex toys for women help revitalize the blood circulation and lubrication of the tissues of the vagina and clitoris, and they ease cramping, high blood pressure, and stress-related conditions such as migraine headaches. Plug-in models, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand and other intimate massagers are the best choices for women who need some help in the “ooh!” department for hormonal reasons.

Did you know that women have two kinds of orgasms, the clitoral and the vaginal/g-spot orgasms? Most women are only familiar with the former, but the latter promises results that are deep and intense. Invest in a sex toy for girls that allows you to explore this unknown area of your body and achieve orgasms you never knew were even possible. The g-spot and the male prostate gland correspond in their role in sexual response, so just like a prostate massage can produce an amazing orgasm for a man, g-spot massage can do the same for the ladies. Some women even report that they ejaculate, or squirt! Don’t knock it till you try it. Buy a g-spot stimulator, which is a sex toy for girls with a special curve at the top that, when pressed against the g-spot, can produce orgasm.
