Even before the invention of the “sex box”, Reich was viewed with some suspicion due to the fact that he touched his patients, who would take sessions in their underwear, and, if things went well, experience “orgasm reflex”. While this might all sound a bit outlandish now, it’s worth bearing in mind that from ancient times onwards, “hysterical” women were regularly prescribed orgasms by doctors, who would administer the treatment by hand (until the brilliantly practical Victorians freed up the overworked doctors’ time with the invention of the clockwork vibrator).
