Doc Johnson: Made in America

0

It is here, in this cavernous warehouse vibrating with the hums and murmurs of a bustling 500-person workforce, that one of the last bastions of old-fashioned American manufacturing labors on, using 2.5 million pounds of rubber per year to churn out a staggering 15,000 sex toys per eight-hour day, which amounts to 5 million a year. Dongs, cock rings, dick pumps, pocket pussies, strokers, suckers, strap-ons, ticklers, teasers, vibrators, ropes, whips, ball gags, anal invaders, pussy trainers, and “love spit ” lubricant pour out of here at a rate that would wow Henry Ford.

Buzzfeed offers a fascinating peek inside the factory (and history) of legendary adult toymaker Doc Johnson.

This Is Lelo’s Next Toy. No Foolin’!

0

by thepleasurechest

gasm

Needless to say, we got a kick out of Jimmyjane’s elaborate April Fool’s stunt– the unveiling of The Gasm, “the world’s first eco-friendly, self-assembly vibrator.” Made of recycled tires and wood pulp, Lelo’s Gasm was said to use a hand crank to charge the battery. It also came with a set of assembly instructions that look torn from the pages of an Ikea instruction manual. It was a brilliant prank, a master troll. The press release, sent just a few days before April 1st, successfully fooled The Daily Mail .

But the real punchline to this joke is that the faked Gasm was so popular, it inspired Lelo to consider making a real one. Fast Company spoke to Steve Thompson, Lelo’s global head of marketing about the unexpected success of the Gasm:

Looking at the reaction to their little prank, they wondered if it was as farfetched as they had assumed. Recycled wood pulp is “not ideal,” according to Thompson, and as for recycled car tires? “I think we would stick firmly to silicone in that respect.” But using 100% recycled materials, a hand-cranked power system and a disassembled, low-packaging delivery: each of these are “100% achievable.” His product designers are now working on a product that would embrace all of these “eco-friendly” features. GÄSM, the joke, may become a reality and soon.

We can’t wait to see if Lelo’s elaborate joke becomes the next eco-friendly sex toy. We’re also wondering if there’s any interest in the NoseBanger.

Does Size Matter to the TSA?

1

by thepleasurechest

When travelling with sex toys in your carry-on bag, does size matter? After reading this piece in NY Mag, we’re still not sure. They quote a New York Post article which says:

“The TSA acknowledges that there’s nothing illegal about traveling with the devices. Vibrators and dildos are OK in carry-ons, as long as they’re under 7 inches long, TSA rules say.”

But when NY Mag contacted the TSA for clarification, the spokesperson said there was no 7″ rule. So which is it? We’ve had our own frustrations trying to get answers from the TSA (We’re still waiting). The author suggests packing toys that feature a travel lock, so they don’t activate in your bag and trigger a bomb scare. And we know for a fact that the Njoy Eleven is considered a no-no.

Until we get straight answers, we’re going to assume that there’s always a risk of public embarrassment when traveling with sex toys. Luckily, some folks are into that sort of thing.

Is 3D Printing the Future of Sex Toys

0

by thepleasurechest

If you’ve been following technology news, you’ve probably heard about 3D printing, a process that turns digital models into solid, three-dimensional objects. In recent months, the media has reported on everything from 3D printed tools and guns to livers, ears and entire houses.

Adult industry site Xbiz recently polled members about the future of 3D printing and the adult toy industry. They asked  “Will 3D printing revolutionize sex toys similar to VHS’ impact on adult movies?” As of last week, the responses were pretty divided with 37% saying “Yes,” 29 percent answering “No,” and 34% responding that they are unaware of 3D printing technology.

Nobody asked us, but we’re confident that 3D printing is an exciting new development that holds promise for adult toys. Last November, the company 3DEA opened a pop-up shop in New York allowing customers to make a personalized silicone replica of their own penises. The price was $250, more expensive than the trusty DIY “Clone a Willy” kits we sell, but the whole process sounds fascinating and the results are pretty cool. Unfortunately the 3DEA pop-up shop has closed and we don’t know when they’ll pop-up next.

The 3D printed Velv’Or J’Naja

In the meantime, if you’re curious about this technology, the Velv’Or J’Naja is a nifty cock ring, made of nylon-fiber and produced on a 3D printer. Is this the shape of things to come?
