THE ORIGIN OF THE DILDO

The dildo is a device commonly used by females for sexual pleasure though it was used in the past for medical and religious purposes. It resembles an erect penis in many aspects like shape, size and appearance. It can also be used for anal penetration, caressing during fore play and even gagging. It is also reported that some london escorts use it to enhance pleasure. The dildo is one of the most durable devices used in the ancient times by humans. Dildos have been discovered in large numbers by archeologists hence they were very normal and acceptable in most societies. The oldest dildo was found in Hohle Fels Cave in Germany. It was 20cm long and was made of siltstone.

The ancient Romans used dildos for sexual pleasure broadly regardless of gender, London escorts were more commonly referred to as courtesans back then. In the Greek culture, dildos were used extensively to an extent where they imprinted their pieces of art and utensils with images of women and escorts using or being pleasured by dildos both anally and in the vagina. Dildos were also very common in London but were used only for medical purposes to treat females suffering from hysteria. It was the job of physicians or doctors to rub the female’s sexual parts until they achieved an orgasm thus curing them from hysteria. This practice went on until George Taylor invented a steam powered vibrator. The demand for this new device rose tremendously. Many women and London escorts consequently started purchasing it for sexual pleasure rather than its intended medical application. Double dildos were also commonly used by the Romans in the fourth century according to archeological evidence. They are still in use to date and are preferred during parties or for simultaneous penetration with a partner. The ancient dildos were made of stone, tar, wood and carved bones. Generally, any material which was firm enough and had the desired shape was used as a dildo as long as it was polished to a high gloss for comfortable and safe use.

In the 1940’s, rubber dildos with a steel core were invented but were soon criticised for the injuries which resulted when the rubber coat cracked. PVC dildos were also common in the mid 20th century and were cheap to manufacture. Despite their affordability, they were sooner or later rejected due to the difficulty in sterilising them and phthalates contents which are unsafe. Recently, chrome plated steel dildos have been a better option for many people. This is attributed their superior qualities like their unique ability to change and maintain the appropriate temperatures, durability, firmness and smoothness if used with a lubricant. Other dildos are being coated with cyberskin which feels more like the skin of humans.

The dildo is a sex toy which has been used since time immemorial by many societies either for sexual pleasure or for cultural purposes hence its actual origin cannot be established. The use of this device is reported to have increased dramatically among Young London escorts in the recent past. Recently, dildo manufacturers have taken advantage of the current materials and technology to make dildos with varying colours, textures, sizes and shapes for different people have different tastes and preferences.
