Emi Gennis Writes…

If your readers are interested in learning more about the history of vibrators, I highly recommend Dr. Rachel P. Maines’ book, The Technology of Orgasm: “Hysteria,” the Vibrator, and Women’s Sexual Satisfaction.

Also, anyone who is in the Bay Area can go check out the Antique Vibrator Museum, located at the Good Vibrations Polk Street store in San Francisco. For those not able to go see a vibrator museum in person, you can find online galleries of vintage vibrators at and

Interested in a modern Vibrator?
