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…
