The most enlightening science book you'll ever read! This groundbreaking work of cultural history, the inspiration for the feature film Hysteria, the play In the Next Room (or, the Vibrator Play), the documentary Passion and Power: the Technology of Orgasm, and Good Vibrations' own Antique Vibrator Museum, explores with wit and careful research the story of the development of the vibrator. First developed for doctors and used to treat female hysteria, later a trusted home appliance, this eye-opening tome tells all about the origins of our favorite buzzing gizmo -- and the cultural beliefs that let orgasm (oh, sorry, "hysterical paroxysms") be treated as a medical procedure. 2001, 208 pages
