The biggest LGBTQIA+ celebration of the year is a just a few weeks away, but we say:
Let’s get this Pride party started!
Pride is our favourite season and we usually throw an event of our own or have a special product or two to mark the day of London Pride, where we celebrate love and diversity with our lovely and diverse customers (although, being a forward-thinking company with a strong LGBT following, we celebrate love & diversity each and every day).
This year, we hope and believe that Pride parade is going to be even bigger, more fun and more colourful than ever and we’re looking forward to joining in with the fantastic street party in the West End of London.
The parade itself takes place on Saturday 7th of July, but we can’t wait to throw ourselves into the festive spirit so we sent our fantastic dildo maker into the silicone lab and grrrl, did she get to work! She’s done lots of mixing and pouring and the end result is something which beautifully encapsulates the fun vibe of the movement:
A Range of Special Edition Rainbow Dildos for Pride
First, flat sheets of soft silicone were made, one sheet for each colour to be included. The sheets were left to firm up for around 24 hours before they were ready for the next step.
Once the silicone set, tiny hearts were cut out of the sheets by hand (the leftover circles of silicone are cute and we use them as drink coasters, by the way). The hearts are then sorted into colour for ease of use in the next step.
Next up, the molds were prepped and silicone mixed. Much like baking, it’s all about correct measurements and patience. At this point in the process, we’re all under strict instructions to not disturb our dildo maker – or we could cause a batch of ruined dildos!
Translucent silicone was used for the special edition Pride dildos and this is hand-poured into the molds, which hang upside down from the special dildo table.
The dildos are then left to cure for 2 days, with our dildo maker watching over them like a worried Mother Hen. 🙂
Silicone is hypoallergenic and non-porous, making it the perfect materiel for sex toys. Silicone toys like our dildos are very easy to keep clean and all you need to do to keep them in tip-top condition is to spritz with toy cleaner or wash with antibacterial hand w and warm water. We recommend using water-based lubricant to ensure the surface of the silicone dildos remains non-porous.
Once the silicone is firmly set, the dildos are released from the molds and inspected for flaws. Of course, being handmade, they are never going to be as perfect as dildos that are churned out of machines dozens at a time, but we want our customers to be able to trust that a Sh! dildo is going to be excellent quality, durable and ready for hours and hours of fun.
Once the dildos have passed the inspection, they are ready for their first meet & greet; i.e we get to see the finished product!
Say hello to our beautiful Pride dildos here.
