Find out about Ancient Egyptian aids, Viagra and the secret history of Lysol.
Technology and sex don't seem like natural bedfellows, so to speak, but a quick glance at the bedroom proves otherwise. With HIGH TECH SEX, MODERN MARVELS® settles in for a revealing look at the long, often surprising and inevitably racy history of the border between sex and technology.
It's important to get in the mood, so a study of aphrodisiacs--from Spanish flies to Viagra--is a natural place to start. Adam Glickman, the president of Condomania, is among the many experts who help present the controversial history of contraception, which includes a surprising appearance by Lysol: it turns out the household cleaner has more uses than anyone would suspect today! Of course, technology has long played a role in stimulation. From the box of vibrating bees allegedly favored by Cleopatra to the vast range and innovation displayed by its modern descendants, HIGH TECH SEX explores the history of "marital aids" for both sexes.
Take a walk on the wild side with MODERN MARVELS®.
