Polar Cub Electric Vibrator, 1921

With a teal wooden handle and a cloth cord, the Polar Cub Electric is pretty unassuming. Originally advertised as a beauty aid, the illustration on the box depicts a woman using the vibrator on her cheeks. Claire Cavanah, co-founder of Babeland, explained to us the ominous looking textured vibratodes: "The textures are just another way to deliver vibration with different sensations." The use of textured add-ons is still used today, in such modern reincarnations as the Waterdancer.

 

Vibra King Activator, 1922

While it closely resembles something you would style your hair with, the Vibra King Activator came with enough textured extensions to be a true marriage aid.
