This actually happened sometimes, although it was not widely discussed. Female patients of some British doctors were treated by "hysterical paroxysm", which is a fancy and deceptive term for "masturbation to orgasm". It was so much work to do that doctors of the late 1800s invented a mechanical device to make it easier; today, we call it a "vibrator", and virtually every woman has one. (And those who don't, should get one!)

No kidding!
