Ever wonder how the women of yesterday got it on, on their own? Now there’s a museum solely dedicated to just that. Babeland, everyone’s favorite adult toy shop, has created their very own vintage vibrator museum. Rachel Venning, Co-founder of Babeland, got the idea to start the museum after discovering vintage vibrators while flea market shopping. Now her discoveries and more, are apart of a fully documented and exhibited online collection.

Babeland’s Vintage Vibrator Museum  features a gallery of the collection, a comparative study on modern vibes and their old school counterparts, and articles on, you guessed it, vibrators throughout history.  In addition to the online museum, many of the vibes are currently on display in Seattle’s ACT Theatre. The display has been getting a lot of buzz in thanks to the production of In the Next Room, or the vibrator play. Set in Victorian times, In the Next Room is a story of one woman’s sexual awakening after her husband, a doctor, creates a mysterious contraption that cures forms of hysteria.  For those of us that can’t jet off to Seattle, photos of the installation can be seen on Babeland Seattle’s facebook page.
