on July 14, 2020

Owning a sex toy can be one of your biggest naughty secrets. You might even think of it as your favourite bedtime companion. But seeing how intimate people indulge with their sex toys, you will be surprised how little they know about them.

Some of them don’t even know the surprising things about adult toys. These crazy facts will surely amaze you! To give you more knowledge, here are 9 interesting facts about sex toys.

1. The world’s first dildo

The oldest-reported dildo is about 30,000 years old. It was 20 centimetres long and 3 centimetres wide. It was known to be assembled from siltstone. Because of its realistic size, scientists believe that it was definitely possible that people back then used it as a sex aid.

The dildo was discovered buried in a cave in Swabian Jura mountain in Germany back in 2005. According to experts, it was a multi-purpose penis that would have been used as a symbolic representation of male genitals.

The dildo was also used to represent “knapping flints”. This is the process that involves banging of two rocks together to shape stone into different tools.

2. The modern vibrator was invented to treat “female hysteria”

Long before, hysteria was considered an illness among females. Symptoms of hysteria in women include sleeplessness, anxiety, erotic fantasies, irritability and feeling of heaviness in the lower abdomen.

Doctors thought that women who are suffering from hysteria just needed a toe-curling orgasm. Then a British doctor used the first electrical vibrator to cure hysteria. This vibrator was a 40-pound device that needs two persons to operate. After a few years, a more convenient version of the vibrator was created.

3. Sex toy industry

The sex toy industry is valued at over 15 billion dollars in 2013. Even experts said that the sex toy industry is recession-proof. This means that the sales in this industry are not only holding steady amidst the recession but it actually led to an increase in purchases. According to a sex toy distributor, their sales had a 17% increase in 2009.

4. 22% of Australians owns more than 10 sex toys

According to a survey, 22% of Aussies own over 10 sex toys. While over 50% owns more than 5 adult toys. Only 2% of Australians never bought even one sex toy.

17% choose a rabbit vibrator as their favourite sex toy. Aside from the rabbit vibrator, bullet vibrators and dildos were also loved by most Australians.

5. Most expensive vibrator

The most expensive vibrator is worth 1.8 million dollars called the Pearl Royale. It was created by an Australian jeweller Colin Burn.

The vibrator has a solid platinum body covered with blue sapphires, South Sea pearls and over 2,000 white and rare pink diamonds.

This luxurious sex toy has a crown-shaped top. It is operated by turning the South Sea pearl and platinum orb like a key.

6. Rabbit vibrators are shaped like an animal for legal purposes

Rabbit vibrators were invented in Japan. According to Japanese law, it was illegal to create a sex toy that resembled a penis. Hence, manufacturers tried to find ways on how to make it more acceptable. Until they decided to make a sex toy that looks like a cute animal.

7. Vibrator users are healthier than those who don’t

Did you know that women who are using vibrator are healthier than those who actually don’t? A recent study shows that women who use vibrator are more likely to keep regular gynaecological appointments. Aside from that, these women can experience an increased level of desire, arousal, orgasm and lubrication.

8. Sex toys are for everyone

Many people believed that sex toys are just for lonely and single individuals. But studies show that whatever your relationship status, you can definitely use sex toy in any erotic scene. In fact, about 78% of women who are using them are in a relationship.

Sex toys are also not just for straight women. There are a lot of sex toys that are designed for men and even for same-sex couples.

9. Sex dolls are not a modern invention

Most of you know that sex dolls are made with the most modern materials and use the latest technology to give you better experiences. But did you know that sex dolls have been around for already centuries?

In the 1600s, Dutch sailors created the ancient sex dolls or leather “masturbation puppets”. They sold and traded these items to the Japanese. That is the reason why the Japanese often refer sex dolls as “Dutch Wives”.

In the early 20th century, an Austro-Hungarian artist was abandoned by his lover. Because he still desired to be with her, he asked a dressmaker to create a life-size replica of her. The artist even provided detailed specifications from her appearance up to how her skin should feel. However, this replica doll was more plush-like than being realistic.


Sex toys are one of the most amazing things you’ll ever own. These devices have only one goal. It is to satisfy your kinkiest, deepest and most intimate sexual desires. Knowing a little more about these items can surely be a good idea.
