(Guardian)   Victorian era vibrator generates excitement in Ireland. Don't know why, it's not shaped like a dragon's wang, doesn't lay eggs in you and hasn't got a webcam interface. I guess our Great-great Nanas were more easily thrilled (Not safe for work)   ( theguardian.com) divider line

It was an elegant dildo, for a more civilized age.

There have been major advancements in masturbatory technology over the last century you know.

Just think, an elephant died so your gam-gam could get off.

So there's a market for second-hand sex toys after all.

I kinda wanna place a bid.

If there's a place where my grandmother's dildo is inappropriate, I don't want to work there.

So is this the exception to the "It's always a dildo an never your dildo" rule.

Isn't one hand enough? What a second-hand sex toy may look like.

Nothin' wrong with that.

You can see that because the level of detail is incredible, down to the folds of the skin. There's a heart carved at the base of it, where her finger would have been, and a receptacle in which she could keep a lock of his hair.

aww, how sweet

So that's where the expression "tickle the ivories" came from.

Anything' a dildo if you keep calm and a stiff upper lip, as it were.

Since it's Ivory, could it even be brought to the US? Don't a lot of countries ban importing Ivory?

As long as there's proof the item was already harvested before the ban, it's okay.

There were a lot of rich people with ivory collections that didn't want to give them up when the ban was signed.
 
2017-04-22 07:53:50 AM  
Too bad that treaties banning ivory trade will prevent it from moving from country to country ever again.

What a dick, eh?

It's from Olde England, you should be more worried about the Black Plague.

Read somewhere that most do but some of them have grandfathered limits if you can prove the age of a harvest was beyond a certain time and then other countries ban import regardless.

Don't know where we stand

No one has mentioned the fact that one end appears to be machined to fit into something, perhaps a belt or harness.

The original vibrators plugged into mains voltage and were like an unbalanced washing machine.

Is the photo zoomed in or does that thing look to be 13"? And what's the little ball standoff at the end for?

There's also a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time!

This says loads...no pun intended....about Victorian Era hypocrisy.   The upper class English pushed their puritanical bullshiat on others, even used it as a pretense to justify their empire, accusing their victims of being savage, uncultured moral degenerates.   Fact is that the ruling class Victorian men were all about laudanum and  boy buggery, with their women resorting to ivory dildos  or stable boys, etc.

Even with the compass and sundial, you still can't find the right spot and it still ends too quickly.

I'm thinking by "lock of her husband's hair" they really mean "cocaine" (you can hide your weed in it).

Also, is it not against the rules to call out a farker in the headline?

Irish. Ivory-White. Penis.

And it has them excited?

Yeah, that's my take away from that, too.  Who the f*ck could shoot an elephant?  I'd like to round up all the trophy hunters and have them shot for sport.

I must be missing a joke in the headline or something because I don't see anyone called out.

It's from an upperclass family, so of course the dildo fits snugly in an elegant box.
