You certainly know that dildo is a device that imitates the appearance and functional characteristics of male genitalia. This implies that a dildo is an analogue of the penis.
There is a great number of hypothesizes on where and when first devices intended to replace the penis appeared. The only thing is doubtless: first dildos appeared in antiquity. The oldest dildos that have been recently found in the territory of Germany were made 30000 years ago.
Ancient dildos were made of stone, tar, wood and other material that is solid enough and could be shaped as the penis.
Ancient Egyptians used dildos 2500 years ago. Also there is a Greek vase that was made in 5 century before Christ with a woman inserting a dildo in the mouth depicted on it. Simultaneously the woman is inserting the other dildo into the vagina.
In China, in the 15th century women used dildos made of lacquered wood that has textured surface. For lesbian love, there was invented a double-headed dildo that was about 13 inches in length. This dildo could be used by two women simultaneously.
Since the old days the phallus has been considered to be a symbol of power. That is why first dildos were used as sacred objects. However, with the course of time their role in sexual culture changed.
It can be said that the moment when the dildo stopped to be a sacred object and became the device for getting sexual pleasure was the beginning of sex industry as such
The role of the dildo in sexual life cannot be overestimated. The dildo is the device that helps people to vary their sex life, to experience new sensations and to examine the body in order to find out more about own sexual response.
Studies of American scientists show that women who use dildos and other penetrative sex toys, like vibrators, are not as likely to cheat on the partner as those who do not use sex toys. The reason is obvious: the main reason for cheating is willingness to experience new sensations. Women who enjoy using sex toys have plenties of great sensations, and they do not need many partners for getting sexual satisfaction.
Naturally, a dildo is a great device for men who suffer from early ejaculation, as the dildo allows to prolong intercourse.

According to legends the idea to make a vibrating phallus-shaped object as a device for getting sexual satisfaction was suggested by miller wives who sat on the handles of the milling macines.
The first vibrator that was invented in the 18th worked on the principle of watch movement. The main problem was that this sex toy required winding. Naturally, this made the sex toy quite difficult to use.
The vibrator that was invented in 1869 was a real breakthrough. This vibe used steam energy. This vibe also was difficult to use as the user had to put coals in the burner. This vibe was very expensive and few women could afford such a sex toy.
The next improvement was mechanical/electrical vibrator that worked on batteries.
Mostly first vibrators were used as medical devices. They were considered to be a treatment for insomnia, sweating and hysteria. Hysteria was supposed to be caused by lack of sex, so the vibes were widely used to cure this disease.
Vibrators greatly helped doctors, as before these devices were invented the doctors had to use their own fingers to make the patient experience orgasm. Usually a doctor inserted the finger of one hand and simultaneously stimulated the outer genitalia with the other hand. Some doctors stimulated their patient's genitalia even with toes!
In 1889 the vibrator entered the market and deprived doctors of a great part of their income.
