This is interesting:
If you’re thinking this is an outlandish piece of fiction conjured by some perverted male mind, think again. I read an interesting book concerning the same topic last year: The Technology of Orgasm: “Hysteria,” the Vibrator, and Women’s Sexual Satisfaction (Johns Hopkins Studies in the History of Technology) by Rachel P Maines (via Promantica). Very well-researched and informative, and quite readable for an academic work. The lengths people went not to acknowledge that hey, women could get horny, too. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
