What Film (Movie) Have You Just Watched?


Recommended Posts

Hysteria (2011)

Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Secretary, The Deuce)

Very lightweight, supposedly humorous, no tits 😟

Lighthearted treatment of a serious subject. In the late Victorian period female hysteria was a condition essentially attributed to anything and everything. The treatment varied but in time it became recognised that regular genital massage could alleviate much of the condition. An unfortunate impact being that doctors who "specialised" in the technique began to suffer RSSI, perhaps not surprisingly. Until one enterprising chap stumbled upon a means to mechanize the process and so gave birth(sic) to the vibrator. This then is the story of the worlds favourite female toy.

Supposedly based on Maines, The Technology of Orgasm, with some web info here:


A fascinating topic which unfortunately the film does not do justice to. I'm sure there's a good mini documentary here just waiting to be made.
