Sex toys were around at least as long ago as the days and nights of the ancient Greeks. In Aristophanes’ brilliant anti-war comedy Lysistrata, the female characters talk about “eight-fingered leather dildos” as they conspire to withhold sexual relations from their husbands until war is abolished. These are the kinds of details that make history interesting!
We’re not exactly sure what an “eight-fingered leather dildo” is, but we’re pretty sure it couldn’t measure up, so to speak, to a customized dong that you print to your own specifications in the privacy of your own home. What could be better than that? Start with one of our 3D sex toy designs. Choose the length and width that are most satisfying, click a few buttons on your 3D printer and voila! A yummy new sex toy that’s ready for sanding and a silicone finish.
Silicone and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, or ABS plastic are the preferred materials for 21st century sex toys. At this early stage of 3D printing development, a dildo that comes out of your printer will require a bit of easy prep prior to internal use. And let’s not pussyfoot around here– you’re printing a dildo for precisely that purpose. Once your new love toy is completely printed, give it a light all-over sanding to remove the tiny imperfections that are inherent to the 3D printing process. Give the thing a good wipe with a tack cloth, then spray your new dildo with several coats of silicone conformal coating. Do allow for drying time between coats.
Sex toys have come a mighty long way since the weird old days when dildos were made of leather. And what was “eight fingers” about? Try as we might, we still can’t wrap our brains around that. If you figure it out, please let us know.
