#FunFindFriday: Hole Punch Toys

I really do hate to admit it, but after 8+ years of working in the industry I’ve started to grow bored with the vast majority of non-vibrating sex toys on the market.

That isn’t to say I think everything is bland, just that many of the highly accessible and heavily advertised ones are surprisingly uninspiring; there’s little attention paid to originality, the color choices are lackluster, there’s no freedom of artistic expression, and damn near all of them have no kick or imagination.

Talent. I’ve been missing talentcreativity… and vision.

Of course there are companies like Babes ‘N Horny, BS Is Nice, Whipspider Rubberworks, Vixen Creations,Vibeology, NobEssence, Divine Interventions, Bad Dragon, Fun Factory, Tantus, and Crystal Delights keeping it real and fresh, but in an industry that’s slowly starting to recognize and embrace smaller companies, there’s definitely room for more.

Enter this weeks #FunFindFriday: Hole Punch Toys, the designer behind some seriously fun and colorful artisanal small batch silicone sex toys, molded and poured by hand, one by one, in an art studio in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From playful radishes to carrot butt plugs, ice cream cones, stunning blue rockets, tri-colored popsicles, and a sleek blacked-out Nun, Hole Punch Toys has most of the bases covered when it comes to mixing art and pleasure.

The uniqueness doesn’t end there, unlike large volume manufactures each is made to order, and details like color are subject to the creators whim at the time of pouring. If he’s in a translucent grass-green mood, that is what you’ll get. Hunter green today? There you go. I have to admit, judging by this misfit box of toys or these white chocolate lookalikes, I’d be more than happy to get something completely my own.

Have an idea for a toy you’d like made? You’ve come to the right place, Bespoke toys are something they do. Just get in contact with a brief description of your idea, and if it’s something that can be done they’ll gladly work with you to make it happen. It’ll probably cost you a pretty penny, but there are times when it’s worth it. This is one of them.

Needing to know more I went right to the source, asking the creator if he’d answer a bunch of questions about Hole Punch Toys, the concept behind the designs, how the toys are made, etc. and he very graciously obliged. Big thanks to Colin for taking time out of his busy schedule, I totally appreciate it.

rocketholepunch1.) Who is Hole Punch Toys?

Hole Punch Toys are an extension of Hole Punch Studio, which is an arbitrary name assigned, for beuroctaric and advertising reasons, to the art I produce. I, being me, Colin. Primarily visual art, both two and three dimentiomal, audio visual, or in this case, silicone. I create one hundred percent of the material associated with Hole Punch Toys, with the exception of some borrowed imagery used in digital assemblages for labels and such.

2.) What motivated you to create Hole Punch Toys?

The same thing that motivates any creative endeavor I think. The challenge of bringing something that exist in your imagination into physical being. The process of making.  I suppose having sex toys in my head to begin with is telling of something, but I’ll leave that for another discussion.

hole punch radish3.) What sets Hole Punch Toys apart from other manufacturers?

It depends. If you are asking about the business as an entity, I would say that the main difference is in production capability.  This is a one person operation. I pour and package each piece to order in my free time which means each piece is approached as a singular object, made from a singular batch of silicone and tinted individually. That could all change of course, but for now, that is how it is.

If you are asking about the toys themselves, I DO NOT differentiate them from other silicone toys of this nature.

I think there is room for as many designs in this world as there are minds and the bodies attached to them. Not everything is for everybody. If someone likes what I make,  that’s fantastic. If not, that’s great also. Although it will hurt me deeply and might make me cry.

teeny creemee hole punch4.) Where do you draw inspiration for your designs from?

It is pretty plain to see my designs don’t come from a very high minded place.  Although I have appreciation for so called “fine art”,  I seem to have been impacted most deeply by the images and symbology of pop culture, from Saturday morning cartoons and comics to advertising imagery and the beauty of everyday objects.

All my art seems to be an effort to break down images and forms into their simplest components, which works well in designing insertables, where detail and complex shapes are not optimal. It suits my style, if I could be bold enough to think I have one.

#FunFindFriday: Rainbow Sex Toys

With Gay Pride in full effect, Toronto has been infused with color like I’ve never seen before. From banks to fast food chains, crosswalks to libraries, even the CN tower, everywhere I look, I see RAINBOWS!

Not that I’m complaining, I actually wish this was a regular occurrence rather than something reserved for one acceptance and love filled week of the year.  But it’s not. So, while they’re here I’m going to take in as many rainbow sightings as I can… which got me thinking about rainbow sex toys, ’cause you know, that’s just how I do. #sexonthebrain

For those of you like me, needing a few more shades of fun in your life, here’s a little collection of all the rainbow sex toys I found floating around on the internets. There aren’t many, but the fact that some exist makes me happy beyond all words.rainbowdildos

BS Atelier Pride Rainbow Dildos: $64.99 – $74.99

If there were ever a set of dildos that reminded me of Pink Floyds ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘, the Pride Rainbow versions from BS Atelier would be first on the list.

Crafted by hand in Madrid, Spain, each of the dildos in the Pride Collection is unique, sporting sleek black shafts, curved bodies for g-spot stimulation, and rounded bases perfect for strap-on or anal play.   Like Kusama and Amor, the stripes are defined with little to no bleeding, and contain all the shades you’d hope to find in a ‘traditional’ rainbow.

Whether you’re a fan the legendary rock band, or just someone who prefers a modern design, these sophisticated beauties are a must for anyone wanting a hint of a rainbow, without going overboard.

Babes N Horny KusamaBabes ‘N Horny Kusama: £80

Okay, so it’s not your typical red, orange, yellow, green, blue etc rainbow, but it’s close, and that’s good enough for me.

Like the Amor (mentioned below), Kusamas hand-poured stripes stand apart, bright and bold, with no bleeding or fading into the next. It’s playful, stunning, and certainly eye catching.

As for the specifics, the silicone is pliant with a decent amount of squish and give, has a lovely matte texture that’s smooth to the touch, and boasts a flared base for strap-on or anal use. Oh, and did I mention it’s uber comfortable and easy to use? ‘Cause it is.

Curious? Check my Kusama review.

Rainbow Butt Plugs: $32.99 – $43.99

ttamagerainbowplugIf butt plugs are more your thing, along with glass, look no further than the handmade creations found on the Ttamage Etsy store.

Although the colors aren’t as bright and predominant as the previous dildo, the delicate rainbow swirl is just breathtaking, and being crafted by hand, I’m pretty sure each plug is fairly unique.

The plugs come in small and large, are crafted from solid Pyrex glass (making them pretty damn sturdy), moderately sized where girth is considered, and have bases so they’re safe for use anally.

Rainbows in my ass? Yes please!

Lix Vibrating Tongue RingDouble Rainbow Vibrating Tongue Ring: $21

If insertables aren’t quite your thing, but you enjoy oral, whether giving or receiving… and have your tongue pierced (does anyone still do that?), this rainbow colored vibrating tongue ring might just be right up your alley.

I know some of you are looking at it and probably thinking “ouch, those pokey things look scary“, but I promise you they’re not; I had a pink one years ago (yes, I had my tongue pierced) and never had any issues. Instead of being made of hard plastic, the little nubs are a glossy silicone that’s firm but supple and slightly stretchy. To be honest, pulling on them is kind of addictive, so here’s your fair warning; if you pull hard enough they will come off. Basically, don’t pick.

Unfortunately getting it in place can be a little tricky since you’ll have to turn it on, then slide it in your tongue, then screw on the bottom ball, all while your tongue is jiggling like a bowl of jelly. Of course you could insert it when it’s not vibrating, but turning it on once it’s in your mouth is actually harder. Who knew?

Regardless, it’s way better than this vibrating tongue ring, or this stupid thing.

Tantus Asteroid, Comet, & MeteoriteTantus Comet: $37.50 – $67.20

With popping tones of lime green, fluorescent orange, and opaque fuschia, Comet, Asteroid, and Meteorite look like the start of a rainbow, one that forgot what followed, but in the most perfect of ways.

Tantus AsteroidUnlike the clean cut lines found on Kusama and Amor, Tantus’ versions are much less dramatic, with the trio of shades gently fading into each other to create a much softer effect. They’re simple, and that’s part of their charm.

Tantus MeteoriteLike all of my fave Tantus toys they’re totally body safe, won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, can be fully sterilized when it comes to cleaning, and will last a lifetime with a minimum amount of care (saving you money in the long run).

If minimalism is your thing, you need one of these in your life. Fuck it, you need all three!

Check my review of the Tantus Meteorite… here’s a spoiler; there was absolutely no prepping involved, and it was glorious.

The Rainbow Amor Dildo: $65

When it comes to the mother of all rainbow dildos look no further than the Rainbow Amor, sold exclusively at Babeland.

This stunning little number has been a favorite of mine since I laid eyes on it back in 2011. I coveted it, begged for it, almost going so far as to offer up my first born just to get the chance to review it (I hoard sex toys, what can I say). Fortunately things didn’t get that extreme, and before I knew it I had it in my hot little hands.

From start to finish this dildo is everything I could ask for; there’s no bleeding of shades from one to the next, it’s crafted from body safe silicone (Fun Factory, thank you for making this!), it’s neither too big nor too small, AND it has every color perfectly distributed just like a real rainbow should.

FYI, it’s one of the only toys that’s been in my bedside drawer 3 years straight. For someone that literally owns bins of sex toys, that counts for something.

Here’s my review of the rainbow amor dildo, just in case you had any questions.

The End.

First Time Sex: Erection Issues

premature-264x300Question :

Hi!

I’ve just recently found your videos and I’m hooked! You’re adorable and so fun to watch. But anyway, I was hoping you could help me out with a problem I’m having.

I’ve been with my boyfriend for a little over 2 months now. And in those two months we’ve done pretty much everything but intercourse. Keep in mind we’re both virgins. Today we both decided to take the next step and have sex. Well that did not work out at all.

Penis erect, condom on, attempt to insert… and fail.
It just would not go in. And then… erection gone.

I knew I’d be tight so we even agreed that he would kind of prep me with one finger… then two.  But even just two fingers is tight. He WAS having a problem keeping it up (not the norm for him) Maybe nerves? So it maybe could have been hard but not hard enough? Could the addition of lube helped at all?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Answer:

First of all thanks for watching my vids!!

As for the questions, what you went through is completely normal.  I hear it all the time so dont be too worried.

For your part, the fingering was a very good idea and usually helps. It may have been that you were nervous and tensed up when he went to insert his penis, causing you to “tighten” up. It could also be that you werent “wet” enough for an “easy” insertion. For next time you may want to do what you did previously with the fingering, add some lube and try to relax. Dont let this be something that makes you nervous or scared, instead make it something that is enjoyable and exciting.

As for his part, he was probably very nervous about “failing” you. There seems to be a huge difference when it comes to males and females and sexually pleasing their partners. Women aren’t expected to do very much, or so it seems, however there is a lot of pressure placed on males to “perform” and have their partner orgasm. (By the way, if you dont have an orgasm during intercouse its completely normal, that may just come in time) For him this was/is going to be a defining moment of his manhood, and there is a lot to go wrong.

  • He could go soft
  • He could orgasm too soon
  • He could go on for too long
  • He could be too big and it could hurt you
  • He could be too small and not enough to please you
  • He could get it in but then not know what to do with it
  • Not to mention the list of other fears/doubts/anxiety that go through a males head.

When it comes to sex, especially first time sex, there is so much to think about. The best advice I can give is to be supportive and let him know that it’s ok no matter what happens and that when it’s meant to happen it will. Let him know that if he goes soft its normal, especially for the first time and that you don’t judge him for it.

Also in the future, if he does go soft you can always do other things to help him regain his erection like give him oral sex or manual stimulation (hand job). Or if he’s willing to wait it out you can have him stimulate you until he is ready again.

That’s pretty much all I can offer as advice or suggestions, so I hope it helped
