A spinster gives advice and some "relief"
in the form of a dildo to a younger woman?
Detail of an illustration by Borel, a French artist
Due to liability issues we don't actually sell any "marital aids." Historically accurate ones would be made out of materials like wood and would have a danger of holding on to bacteria, and could never be properly sterilized in the way modern synthetics can.
Okay, so we don't really sell period-style condoms made of linen, or sheepgut... we thought about it, but our attorney won't let us for liability reasons. Instead, we put together a little booklet A Short History of a Delicate Subject: Condoms throught the Centuries, a short history of the condom. We even found a 19th century description of how the sheepgut versions were processed!
