Above is a (sorta NSFW) clip from an infomercial โ€” circa 1987 โ€” for Sybian, a "high-tech" device that provides "a unique, simulated intercourse." Basically, Sybian is a vibrating dildo with a large, weight-bearing base โ€” so large, in fact that it comes with an actual piece of furniture to store it. When we first saw this we were like, "Haha, sex toys were so cumbersome back in the day!" But then we found out that Sybian is still around, and it pretty much looks the same. (It also costs a whopping $1,345.) We're not too sure where this infomercial aired, since at the end, there is a sex scene between a man and a woman, using Sybian (which we did not include in the clip). After the jump, check out the ad's captioned stills.


Our favorite is probably this quote from the book For Yourself by Dr. Lonnie Barbach: "Research by Arvalea Nelson indicates that consistently orgasmic women tend to describe themselves as contented, good-natured, insightful, self-confident, independent, realistic, strong, capable, and understanding while non-orgasmic women tend to describe themselves as bitter, despondent, dissatisfied, distrustful, fussy, immature, inhibited, prejudiced, and sulky."
