HISTORY OF SEX: Part 3

Posted on: January 27th, 2012 by Madison Lake 1 Comment

Well, well, well.  It turns out that personal massagers (let’s use the most polite name) were not primarily created for a lady’s pleasure.  Too many doctors were complaining about sore hands and wrists…let that sink in for a moment…

For a long time, doctors were using manual stimulation, or “pelvic massage,” so women could have a “hysterical paroxysm,” otherwise known as an orgasm.  This was the common treatment for female hysteria, especially in the Victorian era.  Doctors were finding this work to be too much, time and labor wise, and thus the personal massager came into being.

Vibrators were the fifth household appliance to be electrified and they were advertised in major catalogues and department stores until the 1920s, when it became difficult to obscure their actual purpose.  After the 1960s and the Sexual Revolution, vibrators made a huge comeback when Jon Tavel filed a patent for the “Cordless Electric Vibrator for Use on the Human Body.”  I think there are quite a few of us who would like to thank him.

Music Monday

It’s cold and dreary where I am, so I’m going to pretend I’m in Rio de Janeiro circa 1963.

Post Holiday Blues

Posted on: December 27th, 2011 by Madison Lake No Comments

Greetings friends and fans! I truly hope you all had a fab holiday season no matter where you happened to be, or who you were with.

Traditionally, this is crash and burn time – after the festivities come to a halt – or seem to. But the fun doesn’t have to end yet! Here are some ideas on how to keep the celebrations going, or at least hold off the inevitable.

PEAR AND CRANBERRY BELLINI (from our party girl, Martha Stewart)

Ingredients

1 cup pear nectar
1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1 bottle Prosecco or other dry sparkling white wine

Directions

In a small pitcher or large liquid measuring cup, combine pear nectar and cranberry juice cocktail. Pour 1/4 cup juice mixture into each of eight champagne glasses. Dividing evenly, top with Prosecco or other dry sparkling white wine.

GET DOLLED UP – MOST ESPECIALLY FAB FOOTWEAR

WATCH THE FILM NEW YEAR’S EVE

AND SNUGGLE IN WITH SOME GOOD MODERN TRASH.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

XO ML
