Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine - Wikipedia Encyclopedia Entry
A Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine is a device used mostly by women for autoerotic purposes and sexual stimulation. It consists of a saddle-like seat containing an electric motor connected to a rod that protrudes from a hole in the center. Various phallic objects, like dildos, butt plugs, and nubs can be attached to the rod. The Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine is designed to vibrate when used, while its attachments rotate. This vibration stimulates the clitoris, while the rotation (in a circular motion) stimulates the G-spot. The intensity of either of these actions can be increased or decreased through a control box attached to the Sybian's base with a cord. The combination of the different stimuli can presumably produce more intense orgasms than the user might otherwise be able to experience via more standard autoerotic or other sexual activity.
Creation Of The Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine
The Sybian's creation is credited to Dave Lampert. Lampert stated that he had the idea for this device since the 1970s. First, it was just a concept in his mind and mainly thought on why it was not created and sold. Lampert attempted to contact two specialists and an engineer in 1979, but nothing came of it at this time. Lampert took up the idea again in 1983, when he introduced it to a female physician who loved it and who encouraged Lampert to explore the idea further. This prompted Lampert to travel to the Midwestern United States that summer. Lampert visited adult book stores and retailers. Based on his research, Lampert found that no device similar to the Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine had been made. This prompted Lampert to look more seriously into creating the device. A year and a half were spent compiling more research in the field of sex and sexual counselling. The research was mostly conducted by reading books on current research of sex and sexual counselling and trying to find people who could help the team, including engineers. As in 1979, the engineers still couldn't help in the creation of the device.
Lampert explained to Penthouse magazine reporter Jessica West where he got the idea for the Sybian: "Over the years, I kept hearing the same complaints from women I met in my dance instruction classes. They were sexually frustrated. Their partners could not, or would not, satisfy them. Some said their husbands had erectile problems due to ill health, age, or indifference. Some of these women confided that they had never experienced an orgasm. That struck me as tragic. I personally could never enjoy sex if the woman is not satisfied".
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Prototypes
A prototype Sybian machine was built in 1985. It was made from sheet metal mounted on a wooden frame. Incidentally, the machine shop that built the prototype wasn't told what they were building. Vibration was achieved by placing a vibrator through an opening inside the housing. Sybians today are modelled from a second prototype made soon after the first. The second prototype is 24 inches long (60 cm) and it weighs 51 pounds (23 kg). The controls that the user manipulated to regulate the speed were built into it, along with handles for the user to hold on to.
Choice of a name for the Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine
Lampert and his team initially called the device Master Better, shortened to "MB". This name was used for about four years, but Lampert decided that a better name must be chosen. The device was later renamed the Sybian. The prefix syb was derived from Sybaris, an ancient Greek city in southern Italy known as a center of luxurious living. The makers of the Sybian call Sybian users "Sybarites" - the name given to the denizens of the ancient city, which has survived to modern times as meaning a person who likes luxurious items. The name is properly pronounced SIB-ian.
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Method of use
Generally, the user of the Sybian straddles the machine and inserts the attachment into her vagina; if a butt plug is attached, she inserts it into her anus. To control the speed and level of vibration, the user uses an attached remote. The vibration and the rotation can also be controlled by separate on/off switches and two rotary controls: the left control alters the rotation speed of the nub and the right control alters the vibration speed of the nub. This allows the user to be in control of how fast or slow each feature goes, or even the choice to have one or both of the features operating at the same time.
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Attachments
The Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine allows users to choose attachments that will suit their needs. These attachments are mostly rubber and shaped like phalli. They range in size from small to very large. When buying the machine, users receive four attachments, and instructions on how to attach them to the Sybian. Lubrication of attachments prior to use is recommended, but not required. The attachments are easily washed with water.
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Specifications
The Sybian has a weight of 22 pounds (10 kg), and it measures 13.25 inches wide, 12.5 inches long (33.5 x 31.5 cm). From the bottom of the base to the top cover, it is 8.5 inches tall (21.5 cm). It is approximately 1.5 inches (4 cm) from the top of the pad to the tip of the rubber attachment, thus having a height of 10 inches (25 cm) overall. The rotation is controlled by a 20:1 ratio Gearmotor with the power of 1/29 HP (25 W). The rotation can range from 0 to 120 RPM. The vibration uses a 1/17th HP (44 W) motor that may be controlled from 0 to 6500 RPM. (Note: both of these motors are manufactured by Bodine Electric Company). The On and Off switches are located on a wired remote control, which the user or a partner can control. This remote is also where the knobs to control the vibration and rotation are located. Each side can be controlled independently.
The Sybian includes an 8 foot long (2.5 m) power cord. The Sybian can be used in both commonly used voltages: 110/120 and 220/240 VAC. The Sybian is able to hold over 1000 pounds of weight or pressure. The padded cover, which is made out of naugahyde, can be cleaned with a decent cleaning agent. The casing also has built in finger grips, to enable the user or their partner to carry the Sybian.
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Pros and cons
The makers of the Sybian have listed a few things people might like and dislike about the Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine. Some of the positives include the quality of the construction of the device, the ability to control the speed and vibration of the attachments and the availability of the attachments to suit individual preferences. Non-technical positives include the documentation of the device. It was featured in Penthouse magazine once it was released, causing rave reviews of the people who rode it. The Sybian is also lauded by women who have used it, since the machine satisfies their desire to achieve an orgasm when the male partner is away or incapable of performing sexually.
However, the makers also list a few drawbacks of the machine. The major one is the cost of the machine. To own a Sybian, an investment of some USD $1345 is required. As the weight of the machine is a hefty 22 pounds (10 kg), some women might not be able to lift and carry the device. Some women do not wish to use the Sybian since they might be intimidated by the machine. The Sybian should not be used by women who have the following conditions: pregnancy, a heart condition, or if an intrauterine device is in place. If the woman has other medical conditions, she must seek approval of a physician before she can use the Sybian.
Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine Concerns
Lampert and his team were worried from the outset that what they were doing could be perceived as pornographic. Prospective clients, too, were hesitant to purchase something which was associated with something unsavory. However, Lampert eventually began to think of, and thus promote, the Sybian as a healthy addition to female sexuality. This helped improve customer perceptions of the device.
With the growing concern of the rise of sexually transmitted infections (STI), Lampert and his company, Abco Research Associated, suggested that the Sybian Multiple Orgasm Sex Machine must be used safely and correctly to prevent the spread of STDs. There were some businesses that were renting machines to women, due to the high cost of owning a machine. However, they have stopped renting them due to the liability of lawsuits if a user contracts an infection.
