The History and Advancement of Dildos

By Ksenia Sobchak

Dildos have been used in China for over 12,000 and recently a tomb believed to contact a collection of dildos was found in China's Han Dynasty in Xian. Seven bronzed dildos were found and all points lead to the fact that they were utilized by the maids of the palace on the sexually deprived concubines. Also uncovered were hand-made dildos created out of wood, ivory, and jade. These are said to replicate their art techniques.

Dildos were popularly used in Greece with one of the main manufacturers being based in Miletus City. At this time in history, they were called Olisbos and were commonly made out of stone, wood, or padded leather. They were created for the single, lonely females. The lubricant of this time was that of Olive Oil. In ancient Arabia and Polynesia, unripe bananas were used in this fashion. Africa brings us the most odd discovery for a dildo which was created out of camel feces and coated with resin layers.

In the country of Italy, the dildo was referred to as a diletto, based on the Italian word of delight. The dildo was created even further in the mid 1800's and was commonly known as a widow comforter. Besides the obvious use for pleasure, dildos were also used in ceremonies for the deflowerment of virgins. They were attached to statues like the case of Priapus, a Greek God of ancient Greece whose erect stature was utilized to pierce the hymen of young, aristocratic, virginal women to help them in preparation for their weddings. Others used them simply to lose their virgin status,others used them in the blessings for fertility. The ancient Egyptian females who had issues with becoming pregnant thought that they could fix this by masturbation in the moonlight.

In more recent years, the female's personal sex toys have often been associated with a product to promote health. Vibrators were created during the Victorian Era as a medicinal treatment for women who appeared to have hysteria, which was said to be what women would become when sexually frustrated. The doctor would rub the patient's clit until an orgasm happened and then he would give an item to her that was penis shaped and was told it was a therapeutic device.

Vibrators and dildos made their way into the 20th century in women-based magazines and were called massagers or tools for anxiety or tension relief. The sex toys later on were described as aids that all women would love and want. Women were told to use them as a way to help in relaxation and contentedness. Nowadays, dildos and vibrators are created for both male and female due to the pornography industry. Unlike in the past, when it was only known and made for women's pleasure. The first dildo was purchased in 1911 in Newfoundland and was called a dildo following the town's earlier 19th century industry that was known for carving these dildos from bones of whales.
