ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Here's an image from a patent filing made in 1931. Now, what do you think it is?
I'll give you a hint: It's a medical device.
Find the answer at Ptak Science Books
Ohhhh… dirty Maggie Mae…
Ribbed for the recipient’s pleasure, I assume?
Kinda looks a bit Kagelmaster-ish
Rectum? Hell, damn near killed him!
Some weak asshole probably bought it.
From an advertisement in the back of a comic book.
One word: circumcision.
Hmmm, 1931… is it a stent?
A: No, no it is not.
My guess too.
I think it’s for a needle… [EDIT] I’M SOOO WRONG!!!
Camels for the eye-passing through of?
Just hover over the link and stand flabbergasted, also a little confused and scared.
hmmm… could have a market today.
Excercise just one hour a day and get a Bunghole of Steel in under four weeks!
Wow, I know what those words mean, individually.. But egads.
“Darn it! I’m tired of having a weak rectum! Charles Atlas says he can give me a sphincter of steel! I’ll gamble a stamp and get his free book.”
You’ll never get sand
kicked up your butt at the beach
ever again, dude!
You only say that because you’ve never done an image search for “rectal prolapse”.
I have now. I hope you’re happy.
I know better than to do an image search for rectal prolapse.
Great. Thanks for that.
I think we should try to get Antinous banned.
Looks like one of those grip-strengtheners. Or a capo.
It is, in fact, a grip-strengthener. Of a sort.
I’m guessing early model trans-vaginal ultrasound probe.
Try this one weird tip!
#3 is the insertion tip, and #1 is the ergonomic handle. Amirite?
Here is my handle, here is my spout?
“Paging Dr. Kegel, paging Dr. Kegel.”
My guess as well.
Never met ‘em!
Thank you for sharing.
Oh god.. that was meant as a joke. I didn’t.. I’d never..
Oh yeah, uh, I was going to guess that… :^0
My first thought was tampon applicator. Huh. I guess I wasn’t too far off.
While I’m not a doc, my wife is, and there’s something to this. Some women have issues with the ‘integrity’ of their vaginal muscles after giving birth, or due to age, weight, or some other medical conditions, the results of which can range from embarrassing to discomfort, to serious health complications. Some of the current solutions like the vaginal mesh have caused major problems (you may have seen the ambulance chasers on tv lately). So the idea of strengthening the vaginal muscles through exercise isn’t really that crazy since it’s relatively non-invasive. I know, women sticking that up the vajayjay seems invasive, but I mean relative to surgery or permanent device implantation.
As far as the anal usage of the device, I’m gonna leave that one alone :)
I was going to say something similar. I’ve read that quite a few women suffer problems relating to damaged vaginal muscles, but since that isn’t something people feel they can talk about even with a doctor, well…
Yeah, I work out. Thanks for noticing.
Bro, do you even clench?
Looks like one of them whatchamajiggers.
It has to be sex, or this wouldn’t be teh internets
