Sinopsis:

Book by Maines Rachel P

Críticas:

"Thorough, original, and surprising." -- Sarah Boxer, New York Times Book Review



"Full of wonderful descriptions of the 'job nobody wanted,' including photographs of early vibrators and vaginal electrodes." -- Jeanette Winterson, Times (London)



"Feminist scholarship exactly as it should be: a work that not only illuminates an astonishing bit of herstory, but does so with a neat balance of anger, wit and humor... A wonderful book." -- Carol Lynn Mithers, L.A. Weekly



"Exhaustively researched... decidedly offbeat." -- Natalie Angier, New York Times



"Here's a provocative history with a chip on its shoulder and a buzz under its skirt... Exhumes startling facts from the underground sexual history of the early twentieth century." -- Will Blythe, Mirabella



"Maines has produced an exhaustive and deliciously savage history of the vibrator-as-sex-aid... This fascinating and exquisitely referenced true story reads like twisted science fiction." -- Library Journal



"A titillating and often hilarious account of the rise and fall (as it were) of the vibrator as a medical tool for the treatment of hysteria... A book that can delight as well as enlighten." -- Journal of the American Medical Association
