My pals over at Lovehoney are at it again: Their fun and always-delightful Design A Sex Toy competition is back. The winner of each category can win $1,500, with the bonus Judges’ Pick award receiving an extra $3,000 (submit here).
Then, Lovehoney makes and distributes your toy, and shares all the sales royalties with you. Apparently the guy who invented the 2009 winner the Sqwueel has raked in over $150K. That’s not too bad for a bit of extra regular income and adding a cool toy to the ‘verse (and not having to hassle with manufacturing, trademark and copyright, legal, shipping, being treated like a fucking criminal by Facebook and Instagram when you try to promote your legitimate business, getting kicked off Kickstarter and then having to make it your whole damn life on Indiegogo).
Here’s Lovehoney’s spiel:
Lovehoney has assembled a panel of expert judges, including the ‘Philippe Starck of sex toys’ – Lelo and Tickler Founder Eric Kalén, Lovehoney Operations Manager Paul Jaques, Lovehoney Product Director Bonny Hall and Lovehoney Online Trading Manager Alice Little.
There are three categories to enter: Sex Toys for Men, Sex Toys for Women and Sex Toys for Couples. The winner of each category will win $1,500 and the Judges’ Pick will receive an extra $3,000 (…)
The Lovehoney team will consider all designs submitted to them, from high tech computer-generated designs to 3D models, and even a scribble on a Post-It note. What are you waiting for?
PS – Lovehoney made me this cute discount page.
