    For the past few years I've been making Platinum Silicone adult toys. I wanted to make toys my friends, and I would enjoy. In various firmnesses, and endless color options. In all sorts of shapes, and sizes, allowing us to indulge our innermost fantasies with a body safe product that last over a lifetime. To offer something hand made in the USA from American made resources, and not mass-produced in some overseas factory.

    For the most part, my products are sculpted by hand out of polymer clay. (Most of my competitors use 3D printing nowadays). I find that by hand sculping my shapes my pieces have more of a "Folk Art" feel to them. I'm also a big fan of life-casting shapes. See my Banana Srapper, Farmer's Delight, or Gespenst shapes for some great examples. I want my clients to get a product that is truly unique.

    Science Fiction, Fantasy, and the Kink Community are the biggest inspirations for my products. I started off by being inspired by Tentacle Hentai, and have made several tentacle themed products. I plan on making lots more in the future. Monsters of Myth and Legend are also big inspiration. While I myself am not a Furrie, many of my friends and clients are, and I've made some canine shapes. I'll probably be doing more critter themed pieces in the near future. At the time of my writing this I believe I am also one of very few custom dildo makers that offers shapes with a vacuum locking cavity for use with sex machines. I'm also the only custom shop offering covers for Sybian and MotorBunny machines. My fantasy pieces also have a standard flared base, unlike my competitors, allowing my pieces to be easily used with strap-on harnesses.

    My goal for my enterprise is simple, do enough business to keep a roof over my head, and food in my stomach. I just want to be able to support myself on meager means. No chapangne wishes , and caviar dreams for this guy. 3 sales a day would get me there with enough money left to slowly keep expanding my line.


    Few seem to know I also teach classes on sex toy safety, and insertables play. I also like to bring some stuff along to sell. If you are a BDSM, Alternative Sexuality, or Kink group, and would like me to present a class let me know. I'll teach any where in the U.S. as long as you can comp me for travel expenses, and if far enough away a couch to crash on.

    About

    Artisan Made Dildos A.K.A. Screw China!

    I started my shop several years ago because I had allergic reactions to alot of the toys out on the market, plus there were products that I wanted at the time that just didn't exist. After several months and a couple grand in research I created a product that was safe to use and my friends all wanted.

    It became a fun and slightly profitable hobby that really took off, and allowed me to indulge in my love of sculpture and human sexuality. I have made products larger companies have emulated, and it's been quite flattering seeing my work affect big names in the sex toy industry. My business grew, and I made the daring decision to make adult toys by hand full time. I make a meager living doing it though. I don't own a car (can't afford one). Eat at home on a college student diet, and am in debt, and am consistantly late with rent, but I love what I do, and am a bit too stubborn to compromise my ideals.

    I grew my shop from Artisan Ideals. Make my shapes from hand, instead of through machining and 3D Printing like most others do. Finding enjoyable shapes and forms in nature. Doing as much as I can by hand, and adding as much personal flair as I can into my shapes. I have Arthritic hands, and am not the greatest sculptor in the world, so most of my pieces come out uneven, but I think that adds alot of the charm to my work. I purposely leave some remnants of fingerprints in my shapes to remind people that these toys are human, and not machine made. I donate pieces to charities, and organization that support sexual freedom. And have made custom non adult toys for Autistic children, and fidget toys for children with severe Attention Deficit Disorder. All out of my love for giving back to the community.

    I use American made products to produce my work as well. My raw silicone, and the pigments I use to color it are both made in the US, a rare thing these days, as all we seem to produce now is, well, produce :P This is not cheap material to work with. My profit margin is around 100% which sounds big, but the industry standard is 500% thank you China :( I have to charge so low just to compete with larger companies. I've tried offering wholesale, but it's just not worthwile to do so as an artisan running a single man shop.

    I make alot of objects for an Artisan run shop, and try to keep at least 30 items available for custom ordering. Most similar shops only offer 4 or 5 shapes. I've made about 60 different products so far, but with such a large selection I think most shoppers become overwhelmed. Periodically I have to take down the shapes that don't sell well, so if you see something you like, don't wait on buying it, because it could be the last one I make. I also only make one mold of any particular shape, so if the mold gets damaged, and it's happened a few times, that's the end of it. This makes my work more rare, and collectable in the long term.

    Thank you for your support of my work, and I hope to keep my dream alive.

      I'm an insertables fetishist that is allergic to latex and phthalates. Bored with the selection of Platinum Silicone toys commercially available, I decided to make my own, and create a shop to help further fund my fetish.

    Welcome to my Little Shop. I created it to cater to the Kink, BDSM, and LBGT communities I, and so many of my friends belong to. If you have an idea for something unique that you don't see available from any other retailer, let me know. I may just make for you!
