Erotic massage is the use of massage techniques by a person on another person’s erogenous zones to achieve or enhance their sexual excitation or arousal and to achieve orgasm. Today, erotic massage is used by some people on occasion as a part of sex, either as foreplay or as the final sex act, or as part of sex therapy. There is also a large commercial erotic massage industry in some countries and cities. An erotic and sexual massage may be provided by independent providers, providers of broader sexual services, or through organized massage parlors or brothels. A ‘happy ending’ is a colloquial term for the practice of a provider offering sexual release to a client.

A solution was the invention of massage devices, which shortened the needed treatment from hours to minutes, removing the need for midwives and increasing a physician’s treatment capacity. Already at the turn of the century, hydrotherapy devices were available at Bath, and by the mid-19th century, they were popular at many high-profile bathing resorts across Europe and in America. While physicians of the period acknowledged that the disorder stemmed from sexual dissatisfaction, they seemed unaware of or unwilling to admit the sexual purposes of the devices used to treat it. In fact, the introduction of the speculum was far more controversial than that of the vibrator.
