Brandi Megan Granett is upset about vibrators . . . or, rather, she is upset about what she thinks vibrators mean and she’s not happy about it . . . she writes in Hysteria, Vibrators, and Why Women Should Just Get in Touch With Themselves about the recent film Hysteria which explores the invention of the vibrator as a means for releasing women from Hysteria, a medical diagnosis which seems to have been a catchall for frustration. Rather than seeing the invention of the vibrator and its eventual re-purposing as a recreational tool for consenting adults, Granett chooses to continue to see it as a means of men to control female sexual response.
While I agree that its origins are questionable in that men did seem to have some rather odd ideas about females sexual response in the 19th Century and before . . . noting that women often shared the same ideas . . . I would disagree with what is essentially an anti-vibrator stance today. Very few women use vibrators today as a means to dispell their hysterical cravings . . . most folks use vibrators in a very positive way. Yes, over-reliance on vibrators can have some desensitization effects but Granett doesn’t touch upon that in her litany against the batteried wonder.
Vibrators and similar devices can be very positive things indeed.
Of course, one doesn’t have to use such mechanical aids . . . although I do encourage folks to use ‘em as a wonderful spice to their loveplay . . . one can also use some very intriguing and very erotic trance methods which go far beyond what mere electrical inanimate objects can offer.
