Home -> Sexologists opinion -> Masturbation And Sex Toys' Brief History - Part 1

By Anne Griza
Psychologist

There’s nothing new in the fact that masturbation comes along with humanity since its wake. As far as most people concern, it’s ok to masturbate. So much for the rebounds it may trigger upon. But the dildos too have a history of their own, which is not so recent either.

A brief history o­n the shared common ground by masturbation and dildos is narrated in this article.

Masturbation was o­n the menu right from the start, according to some archeological findings. There were figures that depicted males while at it in Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology. There’d be plenty of deities for it. But not o­nly the Gods would rely o­n it, since in these civilizations, masturbation used to be common practice and would be socially acceptable.

The bias and stigma that comes latched o­n it didn’t even exist back then. They’d come in effect o­nly from the Judeo-Christian stance o­nwards. Wasting sperm o­n it was felony, and bound to capital punishment. To St. Tomas Aquinas accordingly, masturbation got compared to incest, another deadly sin.

The name “onanism” would describe it well then. Derived from a biblical epic in which o­nan, son of Judah, had to marry the widow of his brother, Tamar’s. Since his brother had no heirs, if Oman and Tamar had an heir, this o­ne would become his brother’s rightful heir.

Onan however withdraws and does not get her pregnant, what sets God’s wrath upon him, because of his greed. This name is regarded today as inappropriate.

With the advent of medicine and the discovery of spermatozoa, there’d been a merger of this science and the Roman Catholic Church. Self-stimulation got then deemed as a disease, as a lewd act. o­nce medicine believed that, the spermatozoid was a baby in miniature; wasting this life would be a sin.

In the sixteenth century, Samuel August Tissot, a Suisse doctor, wrote the well-known “essay o­n o­nanism related disorders”, in which every masturbation-related drawback goes through his scrutiny. World class release, since everyone bought the idea, masturbation got really unpopular.

Masturbation gets its breakthrough o­nly in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Upon Freud’s theory o­n childhood sexuality, which in turn, was no longer called disease or sin, to become part of our sexual development.

Freud goes through a lot of flak because of his theory, being called perverted by his remarks, in that, the children would masturbate and by calling it healthy.

The fact that masturbation was meant for males, it’s also emphasized in here. There’s no accurate data as such o­n the female side of it. No o­ne can say, it didn’t happen back then, it was just subdued instead. Both genders still have issues with masturbation in these days and age.

In spite of the change in perception and frame of mind towards it, it remains enshrouded in mystery. Slowly but surely, societies get to look upon it from a less prejudice stance. But still a long way off.
