Victorian vibrator collection brought smiles to English women


Sex toy collection shows not all Victorians were prudish about pleasure

They look like old kitchen utensils you might find in the back of your grandma’s kitchen cupboards.

But it looks like egg whiskers had a far more exciting purpose in the Victorian era.

This stunning collection of vintage vibrators brought cheeky smiles to the faces of many wealthy Victorian-era women, proving that sex wasn’t actually invented in the ’60s.

And it looks like we have to thank the respectable doctors of the 1890s for inventing the sex toy as we know it today.

These vintage self-massages were designed to perform “pelvic massage” on women as a common treatment in the Victorian era for female hysteria.

Doctors found the process of giving the hand massage too tiring and time consuming, so they invented these bad boys to do the job for them.

Dr. Macaura’s Pulsocon hand-crank vibrator, resembling an old-fashioned egg whisk, is part of the fascinating collection on display at Littledean Prison in the Forest of Dean.

The tourist attraction offers a revealing glimpse into how Victorian women – often too prudish to even reveal their table legs – were more than happy to be sent to heaven and return.

Littledean Jail owner and curator Andy Jones, 51, said, “If you plug them in the force is incredible. They are loud and some sound like hairdryers.

“I imagine that would have been quite a painful exercise, judging from what I saw of them, like having a kango hammer pressed against your body.”
