  • 1. Konstantinos Filis
  • 2. What is Hysteria?Female hysteria was a once-common medical diagnosis, made exclusively in women, whichis today no longer recognized by modern medical authorities as a medical disorder. Itsdiagnosis and treatment were routine for many hundreds of years in Western Europe.Hysteria was widely discussed in the medical literature of the 19th century. Womenconsidered to be suffering from it, exhibited a wide array of symptoms including faintness,nervousness, insomnia, fluid retention, muscle spasm, shortness of breath, loss of appetitefor food or sex, and "a tendency to cause trouble“. - DRAMA QUEENS! Tip: If you see her like that RUN!
  • 3. History of Hysteria• The history of the notion of hysteria can be traced to ancient times; in ancient Greece it was described in the gynecological treatises of the Hippocratic corpus, which date from the 5th and 4th centuries BC. Platos dialogue Timaeus compares a womans uterus to a living creature that wanders throughout a woman’s body, "blocking passages, obstructing breathing, and causing disease."
  • 4. Quoting Plato: “the womb - the matrix of women - becomes a wandering thing when the organ remains emptybeyond its proper time. Becoming “discontented andangry,” it dries up, shrivels ups, and breaks loose fromits tethering – only to begin traveling about the body in an upward direction – interfering with breathing and circulatory function – driving the woman so afflicted to every extremity, causing every kind ofdisease – including strangulation if reaching the chest - until such time as it has been sown and rendered again content and docile. This “animal that longs togenerate children” if not constantly irrigated by males and anchored by pregnancy causes the sufferer the most extreme anguish and oddest behavior.”
  • 5. Treatment! Since ancient times women considered to be suffering from hysteria wouldsometimes undergo “pelvic massage” — manual stimulation of the genitalsby the doctor until the patient experienced orgasm.
  • 6. IMMUNE?!?!?!?• Women though seemed to like what was going on down there (treatment) and they were holding their Orgasm for longer period of time! • Doctors got bored….
  • 7. Why a vibrator?Hysteria was once the domain of upper classwomen, those who had the means to undertakecostly medical treatments, but the invention of thehome vibrator had dramatically reduced the costof the “cure” so practitioners were less invested inpromoting hysteria as a disease. And as greaterawareness of the disease led to more middle andlower class women diagnosed with hysteria, thedisorder simply began to fall out of fashion. In1952 the American Psychiatrist Associationremoved hysteria from its list of recognizeddiseases.
