When electronics and silicone meet, great things happen! Join Kit “where did this b!tch get [their] doctorate” Stubbs for a look at technological empowerment for sexuality and pleasure featuring their award-winning, light-up dildo. The Hammer. We’ll cover recent developments in sex/tech including crowdfunded sex toys, a patent troll, 3D printing, and silicone, with plenty of resources for folks new to sex-positive DIY.
