While we’re not in the business of besmirching reputations nor of airing dirty laundry, we can say that this questionable medical device was bought from the estate of a very prominent, perhaps even world famous doctor from Seattle. This patented thermal ray instrument, in its original box and with instructions for use on the female as well as male corpus, still works when plugged in. Though I was a bit nervous plugging in a 90 year old chrome dildo! All told and in defense of the good doctor, devices like this for the treatment of everything from the common enlarged prostate to the absurdity of female hysteria were in widespread use by quacks and pillars of the medical community alike from the advent of electricity on through the 1940’s. It makes us wonder at what “medical” device of modernity will be regarded with such laughable disdain in the future.
