liberte_f.jpgMisbehaving.net muses on designing better sex toys, inspired by reporter Regina Lynn’s Wired News report from the Adult Entertainment Expo in Vegas. From misbehaving’s contributor Fiona Roe:

I definitely think sex toys need sensitive design thought, and this will only happen when the production process involves more people from outside the regular ‘adult entertainment’ sphere. Myla really took the lead on this, by commissioning three talented designers to re-imagine the vibrator. Mari-Ruth Oda, a ceramicist, says this of her Myla creation: “I am interested in how the body becomes a negative space when moulding itself to the positive space of a human form. This interest encouraged me to make an object of beauty that would be tempting to hold and to explore, or explore with.”
