The first electrical vibrator weighed 40 pounds, and required two people to operate...and was made for ‘crazy’ women. It was invented by a British M.D who used the vibrations to bring women to orgasm, which he believed cured ‘female hysteria’. And after a few years, the take home versions were invented.

Money might be short, but that won’t stop us ladies from having fun. During the recession, sex toys still sold at their pre-recession rate, and sales were always consistant. They’ve even been going up! In 2009, mid-recession, some sex toy companies were even reporting 20% profit gains. Well, if we can’t eat out...

Ever wondered why the famous ‘Rabbit’ vibrator was shaped like a rabbit? Well, it’s for legal reasons. In Japan, there is a law against sex toys which resemble penises, so the company instead chose a rabbit shape. I’m not sure I’ll ever understand the link, but it’s been a sell out toy, and even made it on to Sex and The City, so it can’t be too offputting!

What do you think the best selling toy is? Most people guess the vibrator, but lube is actually outselling all sex toys, and has been for some time. Whether it’s because it’s great for massages, because it makes sex easier or because it’s more likely to lead to an orgasm (or just because it tingles/is heated) couples everywhere are taking lube to bed, and loving it. I would have guessed vibrators too!

Now that sex toys aren’t such a taboo, we should definitely learn more about them. From what to do to what to buy, it’s no longer unacceptable to visit a sex shop, and if you are feeling shy there is always online! Have you heard a sex toy secret? I’d love to hear it!
