Masturbation is fun, healthy, and yet, still taboo to openly discuss. Close friends might murmur or whisper about their favorite new rabbit toy, but it's rare for someone's support for their favorite resident of their bedside table to be emblazoned on their jacket or bag like a show reference or fandom badge.
Yet, there shouldn't be such shame in the wanking game. Especially in America, where I've lived all my life, the conversations we have about sex and masturbation are limited when they shouldn't be. Masturbation, especially, is a risk-free opportunity for physical and mental benefits-- plus, it's just f*cking fun!
I want to start sex toy fandoms and conversations. Sex positivity and greater change about how we discuss sex and masturbation have to start small, maybe with just a pin.
If you don't want a pin or stickers, but want to see this project come to life; you can pledge $1 (or more) to see behind-the-scenes and have my forever gratitude for your part.
However, if you want to snag some stickers or pins for yourself, then pledges $10 and up all have rewards.
A $10 pledge will get you a sticker sheet with several sex-positive, sex-toy and self-love themed designs (pictured below). Designs are currently still in progress, so backers have a chance to give input for which ones make it to the final 8.5 x 11 printed sticker sheets. This price is only available for early backers, so act quick (and if you're an early backer, you'll get an extra little something as a thanks for making this happen).
A $11 pledge will get you the pin itself, though this price is limited to early backers. This pin takes the iconic magic wand vibrator and turns it into soft-enamel with a high-shine silver plating and a monochromatic color palette-- ready for any denim jacket or collection that needs a little more oomph. For early backers, there'll be something extra in your final delivery as a thanks!
For those that miss early-backer limits, never fear. You can still have stickers and pins! $12 will earn you the letter-sized sticker sheet with designs like what you see below, though these are subject to change.
For $13, you'll receive the iconic pin itself with 1.25 of high-shine, silver plated soft enamel in the look and style of the iconic wand vibrator. This is what all the buzz is about.
If you just can't choice, you can have them both with a $25 pledge. This is the best way to capture all the designs as the sticker sheet is going to have several designs besides the wand itself.
If you're a super fan and want to see this project come to life so you can share it with all your friends, a $50 pledge is the perfect pick. At this level, you'll receive two pins and two handwritten notes: one for you (from me) and the other for whoever you're gifting the other pin to so you can basically slam dunk Christmas already!
Lastly, for the coolest humans in existence, if you pledge $150, I'll add you to my shrine of people I want to honor daily. Wait, wait. I don't have that anymore (it wasn't up to fire codes). Instead, you'll receive TWO enamel pins, a public shout-out and thanks, and a personal one-on-one call with me where I can thank you for your generous support!
More on the Sticker Sheet
This Kickstarter is an extension of a larger project for my capstone of my Digital Media Arts degree, so there was a lot before this Kickstarter that inspired me and prompted these designs. As a way of capturing more of those roots and the designs I wanted to bring to the larger world, the sticker sheet will feature several different designs with the most amount of variety of you.
Unlike the pin, the stickers aren't finalized yet because I want backers to have a say. Throughout the project, I'll be looking to backers to help make designs about what designs need to come to life. So far, my personal favorite has already been vinyl-ized as a single test sample.
Want to see a butt plug in your planner? A rabbit vibrator on your laptop? Pledge your support and hit me up on updates, comments, or messages with your opinions and favorites!
If you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm always eager to hear from backers every step of the way.
Risks and challenges
The production for both the stickers and pins will be handled by outside companies who specialize in each piece as this is both cheaper for everyone purchasing and will produce a high quality piece than I could handling production myself. As such, any time challenges on their end would be out of my control, however I anticipate starting the production process rapidly once our goal is reached to minimize delays.
My hope is to have products completed in May, 2019; but as a one-woman show graduating in May, I didn't want to risk anyone having something show up late, which is why all products are set to arrive in June. That buffer should give me a chance to solve any delays without disappointing you all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
