What is a “Sybian”?
A sybian is a sex toy/machine characterized by its saddle-like appearance. The device also consists of a rod that sticks outside to enable vaginal and anal penetration, as well as an electrically powered motor. Sybians have many types of attachments to facilitate different kinds of play. The user would generally sit on the device.
Sybian was derived from the prefix syb. Syb refers to a city in Ancient Greek which southern Italians referred to as a city that is linked to living luxuriously. The said term used to describe the said ancient city is Sybaris. This was far from the original term chosen by Dave Lampert, the man who invented the sybian, and his team. The device was originally going to be called Master Better (MB), symbolizing how women can be able to pleasure themselves more aptly even without the help of a partner.
The Sybian is designed primarily for women. However, it can also be used by men to enhance anal penetration and prostate stimulation. The concept of sexual device started during the 1970s. However, it was in 1985 that a prototype was finally built. The first Sybian model was made out of sheet metal. The sheet metal was secured atop a frame that is made of wood. Attached to the frame and poking out through an opening within the frame is a vibrator.
In a BDSM scene, a Dom often controls the rate of vibration and motion of the sybian. It can be combined with bondage for forced orgasm or orgasm denial play. It is one of the most powerful orgasm inducing toys on the market.
