Could You Design The Next Hit Sex Toy?

For some people, using a sex toy in bed just doesn’t suit them. They’d rather stick with their hands, or the hands of their partner, and enjoy sex with them without adding anything extra. For a lot of people, they want to use sex toys. They feel that toys can enhance pleasure during sex and take things to a whole new level.

The problem is that there are so many different sex toys out there, and some just don’t hit the spot for us. Yes, they might be good, but they don’t lead to the kind of ground-shaking orgasms we have been hoping for.

Think you can do better? You might just have the chance, as Lovehoney has launched their annual ‘Design A Sex Toy’ competition to give you the opportunity to show the world how you’ll blow their minds.

‘Design A Sex Toy’

The ‘Design A Sex Toy’ competition is one that Lovehoney have been running since 2009, and it has proven to be pretty successful. They want to help create the next big thing in the world of orgasms and pleasure, and the best way to do that is to get fresh ideas.

This competition is a great way to do that. They are asking everyone, from graphic designers to sex toy connoisseurs, to submit their ideas. So you could enter even if you haven’t got a great deal of skills in design. As long as they get the idea, you could win!

No, seriously, you don’t need a lot of design skills. On their competition page, when you go to submit your idea, they say the following:

“Design your sex toy by scribbling on a napkin, modelling with Play-Doh or using a computer graphics program – we don’t care!”

So if you are out for dinner on a romantic dinner date and something your date says inspires you, you could sketch your idea then and there and submit that. You can also take longer to show them the kid of toy you were thinking about if you are proficient as using computer graphics programs.

The prize and previous winners

For many people, the most appealing thing about this competition is just what is at stake. They want to know what they might win if they design is chosen. There are three different categories for your designs: sex toys for men, sex toys for women, and sex toys for couples. If you win your category, you will receive £1,000. The judges then pick their favourite, giving a further £2,000 in prize money to the winner.

And that is just the prize money. If your design is great, Lovehoney might decide they want to make your toy. If they do, you could earn even more money in royalties, as you would be paid each and every single time the sex toy sold.

The winners of this competition really do sell. You might have heard of Sqweel. It was touted as an oral sex toy, and was a toy with a number of silicone tongues to stimulate oral sex. It proved to be incredibly popular… so popular that they have also launched Sqweel 2!

Well, when Trevor Murphy designed the Sqweel he did not expect it to be the huge success that it was. In the video for the competition above, you’ll see that they sold more than 100,000 copies of this toy around the world. And that could be you!

Bored of your sex toys?

Sex toys can get a little bit boring after a while. You might feel as though you have tried one toy and now you have tried them all. It can be difficult to find variety in toys, especially if you want to stick to the vanilla side of things. There are only so many vibrators you can buy before you get bored.

This competition gives you the chance to have your say. You can design the sex toy you have always dreamed of, and if they like it, you might be able to see your dream come to life. You could actually change the way we think about pleasure.

It’s an incredibly tempting competition, especially if you have a sexual need you think you can fill. Perhaps you are fed up of the big, bulky toys and want to make something more discreet? Maybe you are hoping to create a solo toy that will give a safe taste of BDSM?

Or maybe you don’t really care about sex toys? Let us know whether you use toys in the bedroom in the comment box below.
