an orgasm that transcends time

The inventor of the first electrical vibrator, doctor Joseph Mortimer Granville, called his device “Granville’s Hammer” — and if that’s not obviously named by a man I don’t know what is. It was for male pain relief; he expressly didn’t want women to use it. “I have avoided, and shall continue to avoid the treatment of women by percussion,” he wrote in 1883, “simply because I do not wish to be hoodwinked, and help to mislead others, by the vagaries of the hysterical state.” Joke’s on you, Joseph. We’re all masturbating just to spite you now. Sex toy blogger Epiphora [NSFW] provides a quick history of the vibrator alongside reviews of three vintage vibes, with a few helpful notes from the Antique Vibrator Museum.
