The History Of Wand Vibrators
The first electric vibrator was invented by a British physician, Joseph Mortimer Granville. It was designed to treat pain, sore muscles, spinal disease, erectile dysfunction (ED), and deafness. There are plenty of myths surrounding the history of vibrators; for factual information addressing these myths, please see our Vibrator Myths Guide.
Wand vibrators have been featured in a great deal of media, from Sex and the City to Fifty Shades Of Grey. One of the most popular was released by the Japanese company Hitachi in 1968 and was called the Hitachi Magic Wand, which later became just the Magic Wand. In fact, it was so popular there have been many seedy companies selling knockoffs. Learn more about this through our Authorized Hitachi Dealer Guide.
Why Are Wands Popular?
Wand vibrators are quite popular for various reasons. Let's dive into some of the most common reasons customers love them so much.
Wand vibrators, also called body massagers, are some of the most powerful vibrators on the market because of the large size of their motors, internal batteries, or the use of electrical outlets. They typically offer a deep rumbly type of vibration and are well-loved for the rounded heads that can be used all over the body, including erogenous zones.
Ease of Use
Wands have a very comfortable and long handle to allow for ease in holding them for long periods. It will enable a user to lie in the most comfortable position without reaching or bending to get there. This is particularly appealing if you have mobility concerns.

Body massagers such as wand vibrators have optional attachments. These attachments come in various shapes and materials and can achieve multiple sexual pleasure goals. These attachments include G-spot, prostate, perineum, clitoral, and penis stimulators. We recommend using silicone or food-grade vinyl attachments as they are nonporous and do not harbor bacteria and are body safe. Explore our body safe wand attachments.
