A Brief History of the Sex Toy
The origin of the Toys you can find for sale on Sex Toys UK began thousands of years ago. But it was probably the Greeks who first started using them in earnest.(Reports are that Earnest wasn't best pleased and moved to the Costa Del Sol). The 'Olisbos' or dildo started to appear in both their art and literature about 2400 years ago. Numerous artifacts have been discovered with depictions of various sex toys including a large number of vases with interesting depictions. The greeks didn't classify themselves into seperate sexual groups - 'straight', 'gay' etc so their use of sex toys was quite varied !
The Victorians introduced Sex Toys to the UK however they were taboo and marketed as massagers or health treatments - often prescribed to treat 'hysteria'. In 1880 a British doctor invented the first high-tech sex toy - a battery operated electric vibrator. After that slowly sex toys came out into the mainstream and in 1921 a famous magazine called Hearsts carried an advertisement for a maritial aid. It's claim was to keep wives looking pretty and free from 'hysteria'. So to prevent hysterical wives and partners pick up a gift from 'Sex Toys UK'
