Not too long ago, vibrators had a purpose that, while not much different than their use today, was much more mainstream. So much so that vibrators were once advertised in Sears’s catalogs! If you are a woman who suffers from symptoms such as sexual desire, shortness of breath, occasional insomnia and a ‘tenancy to cause trouble’, you may have been diagnosed with a condition called ‘Hysteria’ less than a hundred years ago. The cure for hysteria? Manual stimulation of the genitals until orgasm was achieved. Yes – doctors fingered women until they came in order to treat them for this debilitating disorder.
