The Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum
If you’re thinking, does this mean what I think it means? Then the answer would be yes. The museum pays ode to the groundbreaking invention that has impacted history and society in many ways. The vibrator was actually invented in 1902 but induced orgasms were already a thing in the 1800s when it was thought to be a cure for women’s hysteria. It was socially accepted for over a decade until the late 1920s when magazines stopped running the ads due to its sexual nature. The museum shows how this invention stood the test of time, how it has evolved over the years, and why, despite the stigma around it, the vibrator remains one of the most revolutionary inventions in modern history.
