Do you know your vibrator history? A rich background of labor and creativity supports the orgasms you now enjoy. Let us take a moment to give thanks to those who came before us and, in turn, helped us to come harder.

Did you know, for instance, that animal vibrators were introduced in 1983? A veritable menagerie blossomed with the creation of The Beaver, The Kangaroo, and The Turtle, the last of which doesn’t sound especially promising. Perhaps that is why it’s “now defunct.”
