The Hitachi Magic Wand Throughout Art History Pairs Classic Paintings With Vibrators

+

Orgasms are an art. Art? Art is also an art. So the pairing of the two makes a lot of sense, particularly when you consider how at this point in late capitalism the combination of previously existing things is about all we have left to manufacture. Enter The Hitachi Magic Wand Throughout Art History, a Tumblr that, as you might have surmised, inserts, if you know what I mean, the popular vibrator into iconic works of art, from Michelangelo to Gustave Klimt.

“I think [the Magic Wand] is a huge part of more lives than many will admit,” the anonymous creator told Mic. “It’s almost a sacred object in and of itself, a cultural touchstone that doesn’t get a lot of mainstream airplay even though there must be a billion of them out there.

“So it deserves to be elevated to a higher level, which putting it together with fine art does.”
