A Quaint Device That Is Still Extremely Popular Today

The Hitachi Magic Wand (HMW) is an electric vibrating massager, which was originally manufactured to relieve tense muscles and cause them to relax. This gadget, which is produced by a Japanese company Hitachi, was first released into the US markets in 1968.

Stimulation is provided by the rubberized 64mm head. The wand functions as an excellent clitoral vibrator with the ability of bringing its users to clitoral orgasm.

A Brief History of the Hitachi Magic Wand

Hitachi registered as Magic Wand with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on the 25th April of 1968. The manufacturer availed the product to the mass market in the mass markets in the 1970s where it debuted as a device meant to aid with massage. The HMW was found to be effective in relieving back pains and was thus registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a device that can be used in physical medicine as a therapeutic electric massager.


The official stated use of the massager was the relaxing and soothing or sore muscles and nerves rehabilitation for those who suffered sport injuries and relieving or tension. However, the electric massager has since become famous as a sexual stimulator and it is commonly used as a masturbation aid and vibrator for women.

The Cadillac of Vibrators

The electric massager’s use has shifted from being a normal massager to a clitoral vibrator. As a sexual stimulator, the durability, strength and beauty has seen on it has receive the title of being the Cadillac of Vibrators. Unlike the many battery-powered vibrators found in the market, it  has the ability of bringing a woman to orgasm much quicker. It is a great sexual stimulator that men can use on their partners who have difficulty achieving orgasm.

The deviation of the wands usage from being a general massager into being a vibrator originated from the fact that muscle relaxation and sexual arousal are both achieved in the same fashion: increasing the flow of blood into tissues by using the vibrations. The strong vibrations from the machine can penetrate and relax muscles and there are many people who still use the electric massager as a massager, while others use it both as a normal massager and a sexual stimulator.
