You can tell from the title that we love to seek out (and make fun of) unusual book titles here at More Cowbell. I stumbled over this one by accident, looking for “Valentine’s Day Fail” pictures.
For those of you who are crafty, or who are looking to add a “Do It Yourself” project to your list, this book is for you.
Alternately, if you’re looking for a good gag gift, this book is for you. (Although, if you think about it, sex toys are inherently a DIY project, whether they’re purchased or crafted.)
Note: I’m posting this on Monday to give you time to order, since it is only available in paperback. There are those who are sick of all this couple-focused Hearts & Flowers business and they’d just like to putter around with their glue stick for Valentine’s Day if you know what I mean.
No matter what your plans are for Thursday, I think y’all need to know about this book…it’ll brighten up your Monday.
Make Your Own Sex Toys: 50 Quick and Easy Do-It-Yourself Projects – $7.00
Publication Date: June 7, 2007
Note: The book reviews alone will make it worth your while to click on that link!
Giving new meaning to the expression “take pleasure into your own hands,” Make Your Own Sex Toys is a witty yet practical guide featuring how-to directions for 50 inventive DIY accoutrements. Readers can whip up the Knitted Willy Warmer for cold winter nights, get turned on with the Electro Stimu vibrator, or assemble the Mutual Member double-dildo to cheer up a lonely friend. (I was DYING by the time I got to the Knitted Willy Warmer.)
Practical information plus easy-to-follow instructions and diagrams ensure professional results even for the crafting novice. With quick-reference sidebars, crafty improvisation ideas, and handy shortcuts, Make Your Own Sex Toys is sure to get the creative juices flowing.
Um, yeah. I’ll bet that’s not all that gets flowing.
As many of you know, the part about these crazy books that cracks me up the most (besides these wacky book descriptions) is Amazon’s “Customers who bought this item, also bought…” section. (Strangely enough, our Crazy Book #2 is included in the list below.)
Wowzers! I would never have imagined a book like this. But I’m doing the math here and it just doesn’t add up for me.
Why should I spend $7 on this book and still more on the “supplies” when I can get the Basik Kinky Kit of Sex Toys Used in FIFTY SHADES for $14.99? (Yes, that’s really what it’s called.)
I just did a quick browse of already created sex toys on Amazon and I can get pretty much anything a guy or gal would need to um…”do it themselves,” for under $50 from Amazon. And that includes shipping. I’m just sayin…
Plus, I’m a little scared by the idea of the Electro Stimu or assembling the Mutual Member thingamajig. I can’t even put together a bookshelf from IKEA. Yet this author thinks I can be trusted to complete a project where electricity will be conducted to my hoohah? *shakes head* Silly, silly male author.
Most women don’t have that same MacGyver instinct that’s built into men. Especially when it comes to items that will make contact with our nether-regions. No…just no.
How about you? Do you prefer to buy your sex toys ready-made or are you intrigued by the idea of making them yourself? (Yes, I want to hear your craziest ideas in the comments.) What books have you stumbled across lately that made your mouth fall open in shock? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!
