Vibrators: A pop-culture history of this buzzed-about device

"She Bop," by Cindy Lauper

While Cindy Lauper never specified whether her 1984 ode to female masturbation championed a vibrator or the classic, manual approach, the song did spark a nationwide conversation about female mono-pleasure. In the song, Lauper confesses that she "may need a chaperone, because I can't stop messing with the danger zone," a line that led Tipper Gore to put the track on her infamous Filthy Fifteen list, an ominous collection of decidedly vulgar songs that rated Parental Warning stickers on CDs. (Note: The number-one track on the Filthy Fifteen was Prince's "Darling Nikki," another song that features female masturbation.)
