The Vibrator And The Chair

About ten years or more ago, I was shopping at a re-use store, sort of like Goodwill, and spotted some odd things reclaimed from an office space that had been donated.

Laying on it's back was an oddly shaped cushion or back rest. If I had to describe it, I would say in profile, it looked like a very pregnant woman. But straight on, it just looked like a leather back rest for a chair.

And, in fact, that's what it was. It was a suppliment for an office chair that would not only support your lower back, but would plug in and provide soothing relief through vibration and heat.

I'm not certain why anyone would want that in their office or how you would descretely use it,
but we wound up buying it for just ten bucks and taking it home.

My wife was not impressed with it at first, but when I offered to demonstrate it, and laid it upon the floor of the kitchen after dinner, she started to become interested.

The unit had a power cord that led through a control box of some sort (power switch as I recall) and then ran into the base of the lower base support. Of course, when I laid it it down, the back support was flat, and the lump was a hump to straddle.


I laid down upon this pillow type thing, and after abit of repositioning, found that I could place it under my hips and when it turned on, not only would my back be vibrated, but also the entire floor. My wife was in a playful mood, so she immediately threw a leg over my clothed body and carefully sat down on my abdomen, receiving the vibrations, and she squeeled, "Oh my, this is good!"

My 9 year old daughter, not understanding the joke, immediately wanted on top of pop as well, and climbed onto my chest, (no ****** jokes, please) and my son, some two years younger, wanted in on the act as well, and so, climbed up my raised knees and peered over top of my wife's shoulders. It must have looked like a circus act, as we balanced the kids among us.  Everybody got a good laugh out of it.

The ironic thing is that we never did lay the thing in our bed to screw on. Althought we joked a bit about it, and it was very effective at transmitting vibrations throughout the bed (like a "magic fingers unit"), it never did find a home. I'm not sure, but I think we returned it to the re-use store in a donnation about a year later.... unused, but certainly in working order.

I wonder if anyone else ever tried what we were planning?
