Valentine’s Day erotic gifts – design your own sex toy

Words: Nicci Talbot

Ever wanted to design your own sex toy?

Madetopleasure is a new online boutique that sells bespoke sex toys. There are six ‘off the peg’ toys to choose from – curvaceous dildos and vibrators in a range of premium materials – clear acrylic, silver, and gold.

It’s the idea of two London-based designers who want to bring something different to the sex toy market. 30 female volunteers tested the products and gave feedback: “A beautiful shaped dildo, coupled with a bullet vibe are the stairway to heaven,” was the response. The toys have been created with this in mind, and arrive beautifully packaged in a black box with a bullet vibe. They are single pieces made from solid materials so no fiddly buttons or unethical battery compartments. They are also water-safe so suitable for bathtime.

There is an interactive design tool on the website that enables you to design your own toy. It reminds me of the personalised Nike trainers I blogged about recently. They believe that as we’re all different shaped sizes externally and internally, the one-size fits all approach of most sex toy manufacturers doesn’t necessarily do the job.

You can add more ridges or an extra curve to a tailor-made toy, or adjust the width and length (I’m not sure how flattered I’d be if my man bought me an extra-wide dildo but I like the idea). It’s an extra £100 for the made-to-measure though so this will appeal to a certain – VIP – market. So much shopping is done online these days and as we’re all in search of authentic experiences what I’d really like to do is go to a workshop and see the toys being made.

Prices start at £80 for the smallest ‘off the peg’ toy, and £400 for the largest gold-plated designs. Gift cards are also available. Have a look if you’re in search of something luxurious for V-day.
