Female sex toys have a long and fascinating history that spans back thousands of years.

These devices have been used for pleasure and empowerment by women across cultures and time periods. While social acceptance have ebbed and flowed over the centuries, there has always been ways to self pleasure.


Ancient Times


The earliest known female sex toy is the "olisbos," a phallic-shaped object made of wood, ivory, or stone that was used by women in ancient Greece for both pleasure and as a tool for fertility. Similar objects have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs, indicating that they were used by women in that culture as well. In ancient China, the "stimulating cushion" was used for erotic stimulation.


The Victorian Era


In the Victorian era, female sexuality was often repressed, and the use of sex toys was seen as taboo. However, there were still some women who used them, particularly the "vibrating feather duster," which was marketed as a tool for soothing nerves and treating hysteria.

The 20th Century

In the early 20th century, the first electric vibrator was invented, and it quickly became popular among women. At the same time, the first rubber dildos were produced, which were more affordable and accessible than their stone and wood predecessors. In the 1960s, the first mass-produced sex toys were created, including the "Rabbit" vibrator, which became particularly popular after being featured on an episode of Sex and the City.
