Your grandmother's vibrator

I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve written about BOB/wanking. Heck, I gotta write about it when it’s fascinating and I it know by heart. I suppose it helps that it makes one forget of other things (by “it” I mean wanking) and it does keep one sane (writing AND wanking) (wanking saves the world, really).

Last week in some cave somewhere whilst I was rusticating, I stumbled upon an article at Slate about the history of vibrator. It’s short, only ten slides, with verra interesting—and SCARY—pictures. It covers the history of “hysterical paroxysm” *snort* (yep, same lesson brought to us by Teacher Trollop on one of her kinky classes), perverted quacks of yore who gave their women patients some cure (AKA: handjob), poor bastards diagnosed with “spermatorrhea” (AKA: horndoginess) and, of course—EUREKA! HALLEEELUUUUUJAH!—the invention of BOB (AKA: women’s BFF *g*). Who knew that even way back in 1917 there were more BOB than toasters in American homes?

Here’s a picture of one of those vintage BOB by Hamilton Beach:





Toldja, toldja! Scary, isn’t it? Gahh. Not that scary freaky-shit apparatuses have or WILL stop a “hysterical” person to spank his monkey or pet her beaver or tickle the pickle—or, er, jerkin’ the gherkin? *confused* Oh, you know what I mean...

**I’m fixing some stuff on blog/template, changing sidebar, checking links, repairing damages caused by Trollop, etc. If you guys notice any problem, let me know. Thanks.

That looks like a monster! I'm looking at it and I can imagine it sucking the life out of me through my nether region. Jeez.

Good Lord, that thing reminds me of a drill or a hair drier.

Carmen, I thought the same thing. And women had actually put this on their clit. *shuddering here*

That looks like a torture device instead of a vibrator.

What exactly do those attachments do? It seems like this device is capable of removing your labia!

OMg--that looks more like an instrument of torture rather than one of pleasure!

Holy crap! I don't even know what to say. I agree with Etchen and Ladybug, it looks like something you use for torture. lol

Now I'm no stranger to sex mixed with pain but that is a damn scary toy! I would definitely need to be blindfolded to even consider using that. It really does look like a hairdryer and I have this horrible vision of the thing heating up like crazy. And... why are there suction cups? >.>

For some reason I have a mental picture of someone turning that on and the entire Street being able to hear it going and no exactly what the poor woman was up to. LMAO!
OMG what an awful looking device!

I thank God I wasn't born in 1917. LOL

Are those suction cups?

Good god. Although I'm curious as to how those attachments work. Aren't they a bit big to be put on your clitoris? Don't tell me you insert those things? Doesn't look like it to me. Well except that ball.
