Female Hysteria?! Vibrators en wat nog… Ja, dis histeries snaaks!

Female ‘hysteria’

(I don’t own a vibrator….but perhaps I should😆 )

Recently I watched one of the most entertaining movies dubbed: Hysteria.    19th Century Comedy

And yes…it’s about the history of the female vibrator…which existed…get this…as a modern appliance, before the vacuum cleaner!!!!!! (No way?!)

 I believe this movie to be in good taste. (No nudity/profanity, even sexuality, really?…  BUT extremely insightful as to how women became liberated….and mankind, educated about femininity and a women’s sexual needs!!

Female hysteria was a once-common medical diagnosis, made exclusively in women, which is today no longer recognized by modern medical authorities as a medical disorder. Its diagnosis and treatment were routine for many hundreds of years in Western Europe. Hysteria was widely discussed in the medical literature of the 19th century. Women considered to be suffering from it exhibited a wide array of symptoms including faintness, nervousness, sexual desire, insomnia, fluid retention, heaviness in abdomen, muscle spasm, shortness of breath, irritability, loss of appetite for food or sex, and “a tendency to cause trouble”.[1]   :lol:

 

250px-Sears_vibratorsIs it hilarious or what?  What were these poor women to do?

Since ancient times women considered to be suffering from hysteria would sometimes undergo “pelvic massage” – manual stimulation of the genitals by the doctor until the patient experienced “hysterical paroxysm” (orgasm).[1]

 

Who did the massaging?  Their husbands? NEVER. The GP!!

 A physician in 1859 claimed that a quarter of all women suffered from hysteria. One physician catalogued seventy-five pages  of possible symptoms of hysteria and called the list incomplete;[4] almost any ailment could fit the diagnosis. Physicians thought that the stresses associated with modern life caused civilized women to be both more susceptible to nervous disorders and to develop faulty reproductive tracts.[5] In the United States, such disorders in women reaffirmed that the U.S. was on par with Europe; one American physician expressed pleasure that the country was ”catching up” to Europe in the prevalence of hysteria.[4]

Rachel P. Maines has observed that such cases were quite profitable for physicians, (ja, no kidding) since the patients were at no risk of death, but needed repeated treatment. The only problem was that physicians did not enjoy the tedious task of vaginal massage (generally referred to as “pelvic massage”): The technique was difficult for a physician to master 😉 and could take hours to achieve “hysterical paroxysm”. Referral to midwives, which had been common practice, meant a loss of business for the physician.[1] The chaise longue and fainting couch became popular home furniture to make women more comfortable during home treatment. Fainting rooms were also used for more privacy during home treatment.

En toe was daar lig. And this is where the movie’s story line kicks in. Dit beeld eenvoudig uit, hoe die vibrator moes ontstaan om die moë dokters en vroedvrouens ‘n rus kans te gee!!!!

A solution was the invention of massage devices, which shortened treatment from hours to minutes, removing the need for midwives and increasing a physician’s treatment capacity. Already at the beginning of the 19th century, hydrotherapy devices were available at Bath, and by the mid-19th century, they were popular at many high-profile bathing resorts across Europe, the United States and other American countries.[1] By 1870, a clockwork-driven vibrator was available for physicians. In 1873, the first electromechanical vibrator was used at an asylum in France for the treatment of hysteria.       

Ask for it by name at yout local dvd shop ….and with that I say…have a hysterical weekend!
