I wonder how many people are aware that the word "Hysteria" originated as polite shorthand for "Women be crazy!!!" back in the day. About as many, I'd wager, as realize that in the not too distant past locker-room humor about the female orgasm being a myth was taken very seriously; leading to what we'd now call sexual-frustration being diagnosed as a kind of female-specific stress disorder requiring "medical massage" (read: handjobs) as treatment - which really took off once the process got "automated" (read: vibrators.)
In the upcoming film "Hysteria;" Hugh Dancy, Johnathan Price and Maggie Gyllenhaal give the history of that last part the gently-ribald British-comedy treatment.
True story: Back during one of my later DVD-retail jobs, I was privy to overhear a customer (male, late-teens) attempt to describe the movie "Kinsey" to his similarly-dispositioned companion. He explained that it was a film about "The dude who invented the blowjob."
