There is a wonderful urban legend that says Egyptian queen Cleopatra ordered her servants to fill a carved out gourd with bees to stimulate her genitals, with the rhythmic buzzing inside the base turning the hollow gourd into a makeshift vibrator. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that this legend is probably fake, but it does shed light on a truth we all know: That women have always desired sexual pleasure and sought means to satisfy themselves with a little help from some creative tools. Flash forward to today, when the vibrator is the crux of every woman's sex toy collection; it is her trusty go-to tool. Yet what do we really know about vibrators?

The buzz: how the vibrator came to be | Sex | The Guardian

And in the past few years, it has careened around popular culture. Samantha Bee did a skit about it in March. A seemingly endless march of quirky news stories has instructed readers in its surprising but true quality, including in Vice , Mother Jones , and Psychology Today. In short, the tale has become a commonplace one in how people think about Victorian sex. And according to a contentious new paper , it may also be almost totally false. There is absolutely no evidence that Victorian doctors used vibrators to stimulate orgasm in women as a medical technique, asserts the paper, written by two historians at Georgia Tech.

Victorian-Era Orgasms and the Crisis of Peer Review

Described by its producers as a Merchant Ivory film with comedy, Hysteria's humour derives chiefly from the surprise of its subject's origins, which are as little known as they are improbable. The vibrator was, in fact, invented by respectable Victorian doctors, who grew tired of bringing female patients to orgasm using their fingers alone, and so dreamt up a device to do the job for them. Their invention was regarded as a reputable medical instrument — no more improper than a stethoscope — but became wildly popular among Victorian and Edwardian gentlewomen, who soon began buying vibrators for themselves. For its early customers, a vibrator was nothing to be embarrassed about — unlike, it's probably safe to assume, many members of the film's contemporary audience, not to mention some of its stars. In 19th-century Britain, the condition known as hysteria — which the vibrator was invented to treat — was not a source of embarrassment at all.

Prescribed as a cure for the curious disease hysteria, the device for decades found clinical application as a supposed medical therapy. Nuns, widows and spinsters were particularly susceptible, but by the Victorian era many married women had fallen prey as well. In the late 19th century a pair of prominent physicians estimated that three quarters of American women were at risk. The prescription of clitoral orgasm as a treatment for hysteria dates to medical texts from the first century A. But manual stimulation was time-consuming and for the doctors at least tedious.
