Do It Yourself Sex Toys and Lube


Time Out Chicago’s Do-It-Yourself (DIY) issue  has hit the news stands – or your mailbox, if you’re one of our lovely subscribers. Though there are tons more things to find in the actual issue, you can read about a couple of sex-related items that I contributed to the issue such as the DIY Travel Dildo and the DIY Lube. It took a lot of practice – as well as some expert advice from sex shop owner Searah, of Early to Bed in Chicago but the toy I ended up making was easy to assemble and makes for a good travel toy for those who are shy at TSA. The DIY issue has many useful non-sex related tips as well. One of my favorites was some info about how to clone your favorite pants, something I have long wanted to do.
