See How Women Used to get a Buzz 200 Years Ago!

It seems that a mechanical  buzz has long been considered preferable to the good old fingers when it comes to meeting a woman’s needs. If this museum is anything to go by vibrators and sex toys have been around longer than you would imagine. The devices in this collection of antique vibrators date back to the early 1800s and they come in all shapes and sizes.

The electric vibrators were introduced in 1869 and at first they were steam-powered and intended to cure “female disorders.” By 1900 there was a wide range of devices but they were still officially meant for medical use. The vibrators were used to treat female “hysteria” an ailment where the women experiences mental or emotional distress. Yeah yeah… we all know where this is leading.

The museum looks at the medical use of the vibrator and then the use of these superior sex toys for pleasure, health and even beauty. visitors can take a tour through the museum lead by a sexologist, then they can look through the museum’s store…which sells…

So to add some buzz to your vacation and get you into the vibe visit this rather unique museum.
