Not Your Average Vibrator Movie...

First I read that Lysol began as a douche. Then I read that vibrators began as feather dusters gone astray. Now my eyes hurt. And I gotta stop hanging out on twitter....

As it turns out, that vibrator feather duster bit was actually from a movie coming soon, called Hysteria. It stars the talented and ever-so-cute Hugh Dancy and yes it is about the creation of the vibrator. I don't remember that from high school history class.

Thanks to Downton Abbey, we all seem hungry for soapy romantic comedy/drama set amid the hoity toity accents of British high society. Add in the invention of the vibrator, and you've got that with a twist in Hysteria, about a young doctor who runs afoul of a spirited feminist as he strives to invent a new device to cure his female patients of hysteria.... hmmm....

What’s this motorized feather duster invented by his buddy? Wonder if that has any other possible uses? And why aren't I surprised it was invented by Rupert Everett?

Here's the trailer. Looks like fun....
