Bespoke Dick - Elf M. Sternberg
Bespoke Dick
While the average man or woman may want an average sex toy, most people who want and can enjoy the luxury of a high-end dildo have quite a few options these days: Squarepeg, Bad Dragon, Rascal, Tantus, TSX, even Creative Moulding is still around. Some of them come in plasticizer-laced latex and vinyl, others is surgical-grade silicone. Some of them, such as TSX, Squarepeg, and Bad Dragon, have over a hundred different moulds from which they cast their toys. And some of the smaller ones specialize in custom colors and textures.

It seems to me that the biggest threat to this industry ought not to be other manufacturers, but 3D printing. You mail someone a 3D image of, well, whatever the hell you want, they print out a negative mould of it, fill it with the silicone of your choice, and mail the toy back to you. You could even automate the process of print, polish, and pour with a couple of custom mixers for "marble" or "split" color patterns.

Eventually, the entire thing could be one simple machine, like those plastic dinosaur casting toys they used to have at Disney and museums and stuff.

Who wants to give me some cash for a start-up?

I see a great need for a kickstarter.

It's been done: See "The Mod" on Indegogo

They got killed by a patent troll. I managed to get mine, but it's a collector's item now.

The Mod patent challenge was on teledildonics. Sad, but true. This isn't going anywhere near that.
