Good Housekeeping Magazine’s Top Ten Vibrators

It was only in 2003 that the magazine, founded in 1922, published its first sexual content, an article on sex aids and web porn.

Every generation likes to think they invented sex. But this is not about sex; this is about a changing media landscape in which once trusted brands are forced to woo newer, younger, bigger-spending readers with web-friendly stories of sex and celebrity.

The Top Four Vibrators according to women who might buy Good Housekeeping are:

Delight (74)
Bedside Bullet (68)
Warming Vibrator (66)
The ‘Rabbit’ (61 points)

Followed by:

Rolling Pin
Angel Delight
Upstairs Downstairs
