Wow, who knew the sex toy industry was so rich with history? 33,000 Before Christ? That"s serious business.

Yeah, totally. The ancient goddess carvings always remind me of a plucked chicken. Oh and I`d like to see someone fit that first vibrator into a purse, discreetly. You`d need an over the shoulder carrying bag. It`d be kind of rippin` to carry that thing down the street in a shoulder bag with the dildo part sticking out, spinning like crazy. That`d be a cure for hysteria, right there.

I remember visiting a sex museum in Los Angeles, and it had a line-up of historical apparatuses. As for the future, there was an "interactive" exhibit featuring a silver appendage, and a warning: I grabbed the thing, and it fekkin` shocked me! If this is where sex toys are going, count me out.

"the first pornographic statue looks like a sexy chicken, anybody else seeing this?"

LOL. I thought the same thing. I actually thought it was a chicken at first, until I actually read the accompanying paragraph.

what toxiiq said - the first is not a sex toy or pornography, it`s a goddess figurine. Keep in mind that in those days, female = baby makers, hence the exaggerated breasts, abdomen and genitals with all other anatomical features poorly defined or outright omitted.

The steam-powered dildo from 1869, ok, yeah, that`s a milestone (obviously) - but how did the "Fleshlight" wind up on this list?

"hysteria?... yeah... *facepalm*"

Yes, it caught on quick, a woman could say she had "hysteria" and the only cure was for some stranger that wasn`t her husband to give her an orgasm... Or two or three, just to make sure. It was a pretty popular practice at the time; Professionals make up some ridiculous disease, they get to play with some women, and the women get someone other than their husband to play with them (Who were usually better, as well.)

@toxiiq - there`s absolutely no scientific evidence, supporting that these depcitions are of a goddess of fertility... It`s a generally disregarded hypothesis, as it`s more or less idiotic, based on hippie prejudice. Personally i can see a lot more sense in the porno speculation...
But there are many more... Self-portrait, amulet, simple fertility symbol... etc..

But yeah, it seems obvious that it is part of the series (don`t know if that was your actual point).

Nah, the first one is a now extinct coche-suchre. They resembled females enough to be accepted, but they caused extreme pain. It is the origin of the word c.ock sucker.

Thank you, Toxiiq.

After reading that, I scrolled down here to correct the 33,000 AD bullpoo, but you already got to it. <3
