My friend Dr. X. Treme of Orgasmatronics, Inc., sent me a Master Beta Kit to review in advance of their crowdfunding campaign. The TLDR: I’m extremely excited about this kit! Finally, I have something sex-positive I can recommend for absolute beginners who want to start working with electronics and the Arduino platform.
Interested in building your own sex toys or kinky equipment? Here is a list of info and resources discussed at the teasecraft kinky maker/crafter Birds of a Feather session at NELA Fetish Fair Fleamarket #44, Valentine’s Day Weekend, 2015:
There are several great sex-positive crowdfunding campaigns on my radar at the same time, so I thought I’d give them all a shout-out at once: the Mod open-source vibrating dildo, the UnSlut Project film Slut: A Documentary, and a personal campaign for queer activist Ignacio Rivera aka Papí Coxxx.
Behold: my sex-positive nonprofit’s Strategic Plan!
How much money does it take to change the world? Well, it takes more than I have now but less than I was afraid I’d need.
At Arisia 2015, Jimmie P. Rodgers (@jprodgers) and I hosted a teasecraft meetup and gave a presentation entitled “Fun with Silicone!” We covered some basics of casting and moldmaking specific to working with body-safe silicone, and we also touched on body casting and some advanced casting techniques.
Update, 7/20/16: At long last, here’s the video of the session!
Here are the notes from our talk (presented as a slide deck):
As I try to put together a budget and financial projections for my new nonprofit, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the data that I’ve pulled together on non-mainstream crowdfunding sites. Go check it out on the Passionate Produce blog!
TLDR: I have a new preferred name and preferred pronouns. As of January 1, 2015, I’m asking people to call me “Kit,” and to refer to me using the pronouns they/their (and other gender-neutral terms).
In my quest to build a sex toy or piece of BDSM equipment using every workshop at Artisan’s Asylum, a while back I took a screenprinting class. My t-shirt isn’t exactly a toy, but…whatever. ;)
