Vibrator

The vibrator– gets passion going

Live and let rock

Today in the shop, tomorrow in a museum. We are constantly seeing how quickly technology develops. But some products are more interesting than others in their progress. For example, the vibrator. A glance at a typical FUN FACTORY vibrator today doesn't necessarily reveal how much of a past this increasingly popular sex toy has. The first steam (!) operated and later battery operated electro-erotizer was already invented at the end of the 19th century. What exactly it was designed for was secret for a long time (although not very well kept!).

First medical, then erotic 

It was forbidden to discuss its actual function, sexual stimulation, whether due to uptightness or discretion is open to debate. But probably the inventor of the vibrator, the English doctor Joseph Mortimer Granville, did a good job of emphasizing the medical benefits.  The vibrator-supported “percussion” (to avoid saying masturbation) was for relaxing chronically excitable women by bringing about an “hysterical paroxsysmus” in other words an orgasm.

The advertising proved to be just as cumbersome. Around 1910 an ad showed a buxom, fully-clothed woman pressing a long object against her spine with little passion or sensuality – even the best vibrator would be a long way off from an orgasm ... 

Today, harnessing passion with a vibrator is no longer blocked by societal taboos. Women and men increasingly use it in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. FUN FACTORY vibrators now are controlled by chips allowing for the intensity of the vibrations to be quickly and effectively programmed. A trendy tool boosting passion has grown out of a once embarrassing niche product and is now purchased by women and men without batting an eye and at a great price. FUN FACTORY vibrators have already garnered numerous prizes including the renowned red dot design award.
