Hey Dr. Feel Good–Fix My Hysteria, yeah right there….

Move over Smithsonian! There’s a new museum to write home to mommy about. Mistress Mommy that is. San Francisco’s beloved, notorious and yes legendary Good Vibrations opened The Antique Vibrator Museum. Already creating a stir, or shall we say a national vibe  some of the antique vibrators from the turn of the century can be seen in the new film “Hysteria”, a major Hollywood film starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rupert Everett in a Victorian-era romantic comedy set around the creation of the vibrator with Good Vibrations co-presenting the premiere. And the movie title has it right—vibrators were promoted as cures for women’s hysteria. Take a look at the happy, pleasured women in the vintage product’s marketing. “Sex Sells” isn’t just a new notion after all.


Good Vibrations founder Joani Blank started her vintage vibe collection decades ago with the stores housing them in loving cases. But they never had one home of their own with the glamorous displays deserving of museum artifacts and now they do. GV staff sexologist and founder of The Center for Sex and Culture, Dr. Carol Queen explains, “We are delighted to showcase our collection in a dynamic, historic, and entertaining display at our Polk Street retail location.  The new exhibit contextualizes the vibrators’ role in society and highlights how our attitudes around sex and female pleasure have evolved.  It really gives us an appreciation for how far both society and technology have come, and it’s fitting to house the exhibit in the original female-friendly adult retail store.”

Talk about a “Night at the Museum” you might want something a little more up to date for your adult toys. No worries–the new models still cure what ails you.

If you aren’t planning a trip to SF Pride anytime soon, maybe you are close to Boston? The Good Vibrations in Brookline has some of the antique vibrators on display. Tell them Shar sent you!
