How Far Back Do Erotic Massages Go
Genital massages have been done as far back as the 17th century, usually carried out on women by a midwife or doctor. It was done until the woman orgasmed, and used to treat female hysteria. The treatment was popular for the doctors and women. Doctors knew women were not at risk, but treatment would have to be constant. It wasn’t uncommon for husbands to be asked if they would join the procedures, especially if it seemed it was taking too long for results to be seen.
The Emergence of Vibrators
When vibrators were invented, erotic massages got even more popular. The vibrators of today are significantly different from what was used back then, but they were just as effective and limited the treatment period to minutes. Around the 19th century, hydrotherapy devices (another kind of vibrator) were invented and used in America and Europe.
By 1870, doctors could easily attain a vibrator driven by clockwork. Before that though, an electromechanical vibrator was used in a French asylum.
Doctors would use vibrators as their go-to device for medical reasons, making sure the popularity of these devices stayed hidden. With the invention of electricity, the vibrator seen in today’s market has allowed sensual massages to become even more advanced. The vibrator, which was first advertised in 1918, is an important tool in erotic massages.
