Here's a bit more about our Kinky Crafting night for HBO's Real Sex from the Babelander who ran the workshop, Jen May!The Kinky Crafting event went really well! I had a great time working with the participants crafting some amazing toys. The Brooklyn store was the perfect place to hold the workshop/filming and the store looked great. It was cool to hear what everyone?s crafting experience was going in to the workshop ? some people were really into crafting while others could barely get the hang of the needle and thread. We had projects for all experience levels so everyone was able to make something they felt really good about.We have worked with HBO Real Sex on two other events ? an oral sex workshop filmed in Seattle and the masturbate-a-thon filmed at our Mercer Street location. They offer really interesting programming on topics that other shows won?t touch and they are such a fun group of people to work with.We decided on a Kinky Crafting workshop because people are looking for fun alternatives to expensive dates ? they still want connection and excitement but might be on a budget. With this workshop we can provide all those things ? Babeland workshops are reasonably priced and we host lots of free in-store events. Learning to make sex toys with household items is affordable and a great way to figure out if you like a certain type of product before you come into the store or shop on-line.� It?s also a lot of fun!HBO made a huge crafting table for the middle of the Brooklyn store. We gathered all our crafting supplies and went through each craft one at a time. The participants brought some of their own supplies and ideas to try out too. We had a small section of the store set up to create a more private lounge area for some of our more kinky crafters ? a few products got put to the test but I?m not saying any more.� Everyone will just have to wait until the segment airs.The workshop covered 10 or 11 different crafts ? we didn?t get to make all of them during the taping but with the help of a few Babeland folks I actually got to make one of everything the day before. We made:masturbation toys for cocks out of bubble wrap, melons, and bars of soapcock rings out of denim, leather, and gummy bearsdildos out of vegetablesvibrating dildos out of veggies and silver bulletspasties out of buckram (used in hat making) and sequinsrestraints out of denim and leatherfloggers out of dowels and bike inner tubespanty pouches for vibrators and condoms out of fabricsoft packs out of condoms and hair gelhomemade harnesses with tight boy briefsThe participants really loved making the crafts and brought their own spin on what we had planned. One woman brought in gummy bears and adorned the RingO with dangling gummies. Someone else brought a spatula and taped on the cut up bike inner tube and made a combo slapper and flogger. It was great working with them and hearing what they thought would make for an excellent toy.I hope that the Real Sex segment airs soon but I don?t have a firm date yet. I?m going to plan a viewing party with all my friends and co-workers in Seattle and hope to bring the Kinky Crafting workshop to the store schedule in the fall.n brought in gummy bears and adorned the RingO with dangling gummies.
