1983 – Invent of animal vibrators

Vibratex was the first sex toy company that introduced dual-action vibrators in the US market. As toys are manufactured in Japan, the shapes looked like animals [Beaver, Kangaroo, and Turtle], to avert the country’s law regarding obscenity. Before Vibratex, multiple pink sex toys were coming from China, but they all had an unappetizing color of uncooked hotdogs; however, Vibratex created “Rabbit Pearls” that soon became very successful.

Vibratex worked on a device with rotating pearls at the base for extra stimulation to the vagina opening. In Japan, the Rabbit is lucky.

Soon, another company designed another version called the Jack Rabbit.
