    "Well, here’s another reason to be thankful we live in 2012 and not, say, the 1920s. Take a peek at what women used to use as vibrators. Seriously…" (Keep reading via Whoa. You’ll Never Believe The Vibrators Women Used to Use on Their Lady Parts!: Smitten: Sex, Love & Life: glamour.com)

    "Our Excitement Builds for Hysteria, Film Opens May 18th We couldn’t think of anything better than a romantic comedy about the invention of the vibrator that addresses the issues about women’s right to control their bodies. Hysteria, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy, opens in theaters on May 18th and we’ll be there! Literally. Claire Cavanah, Babeland’s co-founder, is doing an introduction to the 9:30pm showing at the Sunshine Cinema on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. She’ll showcase vibrators from Babeland’s vintage vibe collection and show their modern day counterparts. If you’re in New York City, please join us there.

    It’s often said that in 1917 there were more personal vibrators in American homes than there were toasters, but what did these vibrators look like? Scary, futurist pleasure robots.

    "Vibrators come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with names that range from those intended to seduce newbies and beginners (Rosebud, Blueberry Buzz, The Butterfly Kiss) to the expertise pieces (Hitachi, The Purple Rabbit, the steampunk inspired Eroscillator) that come with enough force to, well, you know what I’m saying. However, the vibrator isn’t a recent blessing brought on by years of thought and want. The vibrator has been in the hands and hearts of many women throughout the ages, though not marketed with the same sort of openly sex positive honesty as many sex toy shops, aficionados, and other community ilk are able to offer today…" (via I Want To Go There: The Vintage Vibrator Museum | Persephone Magazine)

    "Believe it or not, sex toys weren’t invented by “Sex and the City.” In fact, the first evidence of sex toys dates back 30,000 years, and there are records and depictions of sex toy use in ancient Greece and Rome. There’s nothing quite that antique in Babeland’s Vintage Vibrator Museum, but you’ll find plenty of examples from the early 1900s…" (Keep reading via SUNfiltered | Vintage Vibrator Museum)

    "Have you ever wondered where your Minna Ola or Gigi came from, technically-speaking? Sex toys have been found in the world since prehistoric times when they were carved out of rocks. The toys we know and love today are evolutions of basic shapes that fueled the fantasies of our ancestors.
