Good Vibrations is proud to co-present this Victorian-era romantic comedy set around the creation of the vibrator starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rupert Everett.
Featuring vintage vibrators from Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum on the big screen, and contemporary give-aways in the theatre!
That fancy new vibrator you’ve been eyeing is not so different from one that your grandmother, or great-grandmother, would have enjoyed. Contrary to popular belief, the electric vibrator is not a modern invention, and Good Vibrations, the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, shares an impressive collection of antique vibrators in Good Vibrations retail stores in California and Massachusetts.
The history of vibrators will get a popular culture boost with the anticipated release of Hysteria, a major Hollywood film starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rupert Everett in a Victorian-era romantic comedy set around the creation of the vibrator. Several vibrators from the Good Vibrations Antique Vibrator Museum will be featured in the film, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
"It's about vibrators and women's orgasms, and I don't think people really do talk about it very much, and I do think it does still make us flushed and uncomfortable."
- Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal
