Interesting Inventions: Penn Jillette patents Hydro-Therapeutic Stimulator. For women.

image Ah, Penn Jillette. He’s a magician. He’s a comedian. He’s an actor. He’s a thinker. He’s a skeptic. He’s a writer.  And he’s also an inventor.  I have to wonder, is there anything this guy can’t do?

In 1999, Jillette was granted US Patent 5,920,923 for his creation of a “Hydro-Therapeutic Stimulator,” an invention geared specifically toward women.

“What in the world is that?”, you ask.  “Sounds medical?”

Kind of. The abstract provides:

A spa of a type including a tub for holding water and a user, in particular, a female user. The spa has a seat for supporting the female user in a seated position, a circulation pump having an inlet connected to the tub for drawing water from the tub, and an outlet connected to the tub for discharging the drawn water back to the tub. A discharge nozzle is located within the tub and connected to the outlet, mounted to the seat so that the discharged water from the circulation pump automatically aligns with and is directed to stimulation points of the female user when the female user sits in the seat.

In layman’s terms, he took a regular hot tub and positioned a jet nozzle so it’d be pointed at a woman’s hoo-ha.


Jillette says that the “Jill-Jet” has been a popular attraction at his Las Vegas home.
