Top 5 Vibrator Scenes in Movies

In the historical rom-com "Hysteria," a progressive new doctor (Hugh Dancy) joins a respected women's physician (Jonathan Pryce) who specializes in curing the female condition of hysteria through manual stimulation. Naturally, the revolutionary treatment is so popular with upper-crust Victorian ladies that the poor young doc develops repetitive stress, leaving him unable to perform his professional duties until his inventor pal (Rupert Everett) develops an electric stimulator that does the job much more efficiently.

But "Hysteria" is far from the first film to highlight a lady's electric best friend. While the topic isn't exactly common, there are plenty of mainstream comedies that include some memorably good vibrations. Sorry, fellas, but we kept the users  strictly female.

5. 'Easy A' (2010)

Olive (Emma Stone) doesn't actually use her vibrator, but it's still a hilarious plot point in the adorably clever teen movie. As a gift for pretending to have sex with him, Olive's closeted gay friend Brandon presents her with a special thank you: a vibrator with a "Go screw yourself" note. She doesn't, but her dog keeps accidentally turning it on. The only thing that turns Olive on, however, is thoughts of Woodchuck Todd (Penn Badgley).

4. 'Not Another Teen Movie' (2001)

The very first scene of the teen-flick parody opens with Janey (Chyler Leigh) watching a beloved actor on TV. Seeing him in a tuxedo incites her to uncover her special foot-long friend and "celebrate" her birthday morning. Unfortunately for Janey, everyone from her father, little brother, grandparents, parish priest, and the elementary-school kids she volunteers with wants to wish her a happy day -- right as she's trying for her own happy ending.

3. 'The Ugly Truth' (2009)

Overall, this is one of Katherine Heigl's many forgettable rom-coms, but the actress scores extra points for having to execute the big O in public. Heigl's type-A news producer puts on a pair of remote-controlled panties for a date. But when her boss and jerk of an anchor (Gerard Butler) forces her to attend a business dinner, she ends up at a restaurant where a kid finds the shiny remote and unwittingly triggers a "When Harry Met Sally"-like "Yes, yes, yes!"

2. 'The Slums of Beverly Hills' (1998)

This scene couldn't be any simpler. It's basically a long close-up of Violet's (Natasha Lyonne) face as she experiments with her older cousin's "boyfriend." It's a brilliant scene, because while you hear the buzzing, the focus is on Violet's changing expressions. You know exactly what's going on, even though the vintage white toy (this is a coming-of-age comedy about the '70s, after all) doesn't make an appearance until a sated Violet clutches it reverently to her heart.

1. 'Parenthood' (1989)

Compared to the other scenes on our list, this one is both short and innocent. But we think it's the funniest by far, and it's one of the most memorable moments of the '80s comedy. When the electricity goes out during a Buckman family dinner at single mom Helen's (Dianne Wiest) house, her brother (Steve Martin) offers to fetch the flashlight from her bedroom. He can't find the switch, and just as he turns it on and says, "What's that?" the lights turn back on -- with the entire extended clan in full view of Helen's bedside table companion. "Mommy, what was that?" a young niece asks. "That was an electric ear cleaner." Classic.
