If you have to buy it, it's not homemade by you, so it kind of defeats the purpose. Also, I wouldn't trust the random stranger on etsy not to be up to something creepy, sorry.

Why buy one when you can make your own. That defeats the purpose of being homemade. I would make my own then give someone else the money.

I may consider glass or steel toys if the shape and size were good. But honestly, I would probably just use the idea and make one my self.

I probably wouldn't buy a homemade sex toy. I'll stick to Eden.

I can't make my own glass or wooden toys at home, so I guess that wouldn't really defeat the purpose. Homemade just means that it was made at home, doesn't have to mean that it was made in YOUR home.

I wouldn't. Although I've seen some nice ones, I wouldn't trust a complete stranger making their own toys to be knowledgeable enough about things like material quality and safety to buy from them. I'd rather get my toys here.

It would have to be a special toy, and I would have to have all my questions answered. But if I thought it was well made and safe to use, if I felt comfortable with the maker, I might think about it. I'm not a handy dandy person myself, so making something myself is highly unlikely.

Charry Charry
It seems less safe.

mlmac mlmac
If I made it myself, well what's the use of making one if I'm not gonna use it. If someone else made it, it's just like Gracie said, I would have to feel comfortable who the maker is, the price and what material is used to make it.

Why buy a homemade sex toy from someone else, when I could make my own or find something laying around the house now. Consider a Phillips Sonicare tooth brush which vibrates at more than 40,000 stokes per minute!!! NOW, THAT IS A VIBRATOR, just laying around the house!!

My partner and I make BDSM toys and sell them. I would buy safe materials that were homemade in a heartbeat if they were awesome, and I would buy homemade BDSM toys if they looked really neat.

Exactly what I have in mind.

For sanitary reasons, no.

It would really depend on whether the seller/maker was trustworthy and the material of the toy. I just did a search and there seems to be some pretty glass pieces... but I'm in no rush to get them (even if some of them glow in the dark).

I think the only toys I would buy would be handcrafted leather bondage equipment or floggers. The craftsmanship would have to be really good though.

I guess I'm picky because I don't think I would. With my luck I would pay for it and in return I would get a straw, rubber band, and a paper clip with a note saying,"assembly required".

I'd make one myself. If someone else can do it and sell it, surely I can make it myself for less. Then it would really be homemade too.

I would buy a wood peddle that's home-made.

I love home made sex toys. You just don't find such beautiful designs in mainstream shops. Sometimes you can even get custom colors and hardnesses!

The little homemade shops are how all dildo companies get started. Tantus used to be one woman in her kitchen. Who knows who will be the next big company? Toss some money to the little guys and find out.

My favorite Etsy shops are Damned Average and Whipspider Rubber Works.

Damned Average is run by a very sweet novice making abstract toys who is willing to cut awesome deals to those who are willing to help her learn. I've been buying from her for about a year now and she has really improved and only keeps getting better. I highly recommend her Small Tentacle for P-spot (or G-spot) stimulation and her Alien is just plain fun.

Whipspider is another unknown that I think might go somewhere. They already surpass Doc Johnson in quality with far more creative designs in much nicer colors. Every toy they make is high quality and beautifully hand poured. If you're looking for detailed non-penis designs, you'll be in heaven. Their Jellyfish is wonderful as is their Unicorn Horn.

I probably wouldn't, I would be too worried about how well it is made and if it is really safe and made of what they say it is. I'd rather just buy from EF.

I've looked at Damn Average before, and I've heard she'll even re-cover toys if they're small or rough.
