    Oh what to say about this one. Patented in April, 1918, it appears to be a heat treatment to cure many problems to include Prostatic Trouble in General; Frequent Urination; Diminished Sexual Strength; Backache - Foot & Leg Pains, Nervousness, Blues, Worry & Depression; Constipation and Piles; etc. As stated on the box "It represents a prompt and effective method for using natural means in the assistance of nature. It leaves no evil effects." It was manufactured by The Electro Thermal Company, Steubenville, Ohio.

      Wondering about the black thing with the cord & handle? Not hard to figure out, but the light bulb?! Guess if it worked, they would still be making them. Of course the mentioned part still is.

      Well, the black thing went up ones....rectum. It would heat up. The light bulb was a fail safe. If there was a power surge the bulb would burn out and break the circuit...so you didn't um...get electrocuted in a really bad way

      I think that was more than I wanted to know! I can certainly see other applications but we won't go there.

      LOL! That's why I said it was interesting...lol. If. It's any consolation, it looks unused. No wonder their life expectancy was so low. ;)

      My girlfriend has shown some interest & I have to admit a few degrees increase may be exciting. Know where I can buy one?

      We are beginning to have fantasies about this. Later!
    7. jlennongrrl jlennongrrl, 8 years ago
      Lol! A quick web search shows many brand new ones. ;)
    8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years ago
