Possible Brooklyn trend alert?

Brooklyn resident and actress, Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is starring in Hysteria, a new film about the invention of the first mechanical vibrators in the 1880s to cure “hysteria,” (aka “lady problems”), received so many sex toys that she spread the wealth around to her girlfriends,

“By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time. [While shootingHysteria] I was sent a lot of vibrators from different sex stores in England while we were shooting the movie. I shared them around.” [Reuters]
