bdsm sex machine
Let's face it, we come from a horny species. At about the same time humans were making things, they were also figuring out how to make entertainment tools -- some sex toys date back more than 30,000 years. Now we have USB, we have battery power, we have warm sex toys, but back then, things were primitive. If you've ever turned on your device before masturbating and wondered, "Who invented this amazing thing?" Be prepared for some strange answers and provenance that may surprise you.
An edible dildo
The ancient Greeks used whatever natural resources they had, such as leather or stone, to make dildos. But another ready-made resource is one you can provide with any meal.
Today's vocabulary lesson is olisbokolLikes. Try saying it ten times. Olisbokollikes means a dildo made from old bread (think the arc of a baguette). Is the price right? Absolutely. Waste conscious? Absolutely. Is it good for vaginal pH? That's not true.
Although the invention and use of the dildo have long been established, the term dildo was not coined until 1400 AD, during the Italian Renaissance. The word "dilet" comes from "diletto," which means to make or give pleasure. It makes sense.
The Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) also reveals an interesting history of sex toys. Han Chinese believe that you take your things with you when you die, so they place their precious possessions in the grave, such as bronze dildos
Sailor Sex Doll
Have you ever wondered who invented the sex doll? Well, only those who had no human contact in the 17th century would have spent much time at sea. We are, of course, talking about French sailors. All we can say is that it must have been a long and lonely voyage, because the inflatable dolls were made of straw and sailors called them "ladies of the Voyage," or ladies of the Voyage.
In another account of sailors seeking companionship from sex dolls, Japanese and Dutch sailors exchanged hand-sewn sex dolls in the 17th century. In the United States, sex dolls first appeared in pornographic magazines in the 1960s, when the sale of sexual paraphernalia was legal. Today, sex dolls have come a long way from their straw origins, and now they are more real than ever.
"If sex is the dessert, recuperation is the icing on the cake."
Condoms and birth control pills.
The ancient Greeks originally thought that olive oil, which they used as a lubricant, could prevent pregnancy. But it wasn't until 1564 that the first condom was recorded. Gosh, they've come a long way since they were born.
During this time there was a deadly syphilis epidemic (thanks to modern medical advances!). People are desperate to find a way to masturbate without contracting the rampant sexually transmitted disease. If left untreated, we now know that syphilis can be fatal, making people take great risks in the sex trade.
Until Gabrielle Falopio invented the very original interpretation of what we now call the condom. What makes it so primitive? The linen sheaths were soaked in Falloppio chemicals and dried. Sounds like genitals feel bad, right? Strangely enough, his invention worked. We have Falopio to thank for condoms and safe sex. Europeans even named a reproductive organ after him, the fallopian tube!
Thankfully, we now have a large selection of condoms. These condoms are all evolved from dry linen soaked in chemicals - lubricated, strawberry flavored, ribbed, riveted, warm, glow-in-the-dark, and come in different sizes.
What are the origins of BDSM toys?
One of the earliest sutras on sex, the Kama Sutra, mentions things like spanking. The Kama Sutra also avoided some of the earliest inventions, such as penis enlargement with wasp bites.
But what about other BDSM toys, like whips, chains, clips, and restraints? In 1791, the Marquis de Sade published Justine, the first novel detailing BDSM and some of its toys, such as nipple clamps and riding crops. You may know Thad's name from the BDSM acronym "Sadism." Because a lot of BDSM toys are abnormal, that means you can treat everyday objects as sex toys. Their origins come from the written and BDSM culture developed in the 19th century.
The origin of the Rooster Ring
The penis ring slows blood flow to the penis and prolongs erection. In modern times, people with penises may use them for longer, sexier sex. The custom originated during the Jin Dynasty (1115-1234), when Chinese men were allowed to have sex with multiple brides, resulting in multiple heirs.
Some people want to use goat eyelids and eyelashes to create penile rings to prolong erection time. Now some rooster rings are made of materials like silicone or metal that vibrate. Needless to say, it's much easier to get a penis ring now.
