3.13 Interview

  • This episode’s interview is the first in a series with sex toy aficionados.
  • Richard Carver makes high quality sex toys, art pieces and 3D models by hand out of wood. Wood is light-weight, warms to body temperature quickly and can be used with condoms. It’s not easily sterilisable, however, so once you use it, it’s yours.

  • You can purchase directly from him, as well as make custom requests from his Etsy shop, Lumberjill.
