Vibrator History, Hysteria And Women’s Health

EXCERPT:

VIBRATOR HISTORY: In the late 1800s, the field of medicine lacked today’s sophistication. And diseases known today as: bi-polar, depression and anxiety, among others, which we now know are caused by increases or decreases or absence of a multitude of hormones and proteins and are treated with powerful drugs and intense therapy – used to be just called “hysteria.”

And “hysteria,” whose symptoms ranged from irritability and bloated stomach… all the way to really irritable and really bloated stomach — affected in nearly all instances… just women. Why not men, you ask? Oh, you’ll see in just a second.

You see, the treatment prescribed to women diagnosed with “hysteria” was stimulation of the clitoris until orgasm.  No. Not self stimulation. Rather, it was stimulation performed by the doctor. By hand. His hand. And when manual stimulation is the cure… you can bet that it was also the doctor’s diagnosis. A lot. A real lot. Like, a lotta lot.

You can imagine women walking into the doctor’s office and the doctor saying: OK, lift up your skirt. And the woman saying: “But Doctor, Is that how you treat my stab wound to the neck.”

Now, here’s the rub. There was a problem with all that rubbing and stimulating. No, not for the women – many reported feeling better after they orgasmed. At least the ones whose doctors didn’t make a slurping sound like this – while they massaged the woman. The problem was that with all the rubbing and massaging they did, Doctor’s hands became cramped, swollen and sore.
