Slate did a brief History of The Vibrator slideshow back in 2005. It's a treasure trove of bloggable esoterica.
"Vibrator innovation was in fact a driving force behind the creation of the small electric motor."
"By 1917, there were more vibrators than toasters in American homes."
I kid you not.
The medical treatment (a Doctor may have used a weapon something like that in the first picture as a cure-all for all sorts of psychological and physical ladies' ailments - 'another appointment Mrs Wilburforce?') called hysterical paroxysm therapy was also parodied in TC Boyles' "Road To Wellville", the story of the Kellogg's (yes that Kellogg - his brother actually) Health Farm during the early 20C vegetarianism and healthy mind and body craze.
Around this time they were also forcibly sterilising imbeciles and hillbillies to improve the American race - an idea that the young Hitler admired and took up with a vengeance.
p.s. The movie of Wellville with Matthew Broderick and John Cusack was not as funny as the book, just a bit too weird. Dana Carvey's ham acting and ridiculous hair also spoiled it.
So it's, hands ABOVE the bedsheets boys and girls!

Let me know when you've finished with the first one, I need to put up some new fibro-cement sheets on the wall of the shed and I'll need the power drill.
Trade you for the pressure washer.
