We all get a buzz from our turn-ons, but do we all get turned on from a buzz? Vibrators along with dildos are the most common sex toys available today. While you might snigger at them often being coyly packaged as ‘personal massagers’, that’s exactly what they were invented for. The first vibrator was created in the 19th century to help aid with muscle and joint pain – unless you buy in to the apocryphal tale of Cleopatra inventing the first by filling a hollow gourd with angry bees. These Victorian vibrators were soon repurposed by enterprising physicians to help induce ‘paroxysmal convulsions’ in women diagnosed with hysteria – it was only later that they realised that these convulsions were in fact the long medically- disregarded female orgasm.
