I have to admit that I am partial to a bit of DIY. It all stems from my Dad, who in my younger days, would say,
“You need to watch me fixing this son, it will save you a fortune when you’re older.”
He was was right. I have engaged in many DIY activities at home and have even earned additional cash when times were hard. I’m not a skilled trade man, and have only cut the end off one finger so far, so I’m an amateur by comparison, and have learnt more through my mistakes than successes. I publicly offer my apologies to my work colleague of 30 years ago when I told him I could plaster his dining room, when in fact all I managed was to coat his house in pink dust and solidify his carpet. Lesson number one; Stop being a cocky 20 year old and don’t rely on your father to make a hoax call about a flood to get you out of the house to come up with a plan B!  I digress..

In much later life, being able to use tools and see the possibilities in every day items soon steered my thinking towards all things Kink. Now we all know that quality toys are expensive, and generally you get what you pay for in terms of safe materials and longevity. A quick visit to a kink fair or scanning Pinterest soon uncovers hidden possibility in my cache of ‘It will come in handy for something one day’ piles of wood, old chair legs, steel tubes, nut, bolts and all manner of things most would class as rubbish! I don’t need a garage, I need a barn.

My first experiment was fixing a children’s Bicycle handlebar grip to a dildo. I found the lube made the dildo unwieldy when looking for a good grip. The non slip handle worked well when getting up some speed!  I admit it did look it was missing a multi-coloured tassle hanging from it, and on occassion I had to resist the urge to twist it like a throtle and make motorbike noises.  I need to grow up.

Then I found the book Build Better Bondage. Real ideas, clear plans and simple instructions. That produced our first play bench, which having never followed construction plans beyond an Ikea Billy Bookcase, worked out really well. I made some modifications at the time, and after using it a few occasions, made some more. I even added an extension for a fucking matching mount! It could do with a complete design overhaul and a new build; Maybe one day I’ll scope that out.

I like using something that is handmade, it adds to the event. We have flogger made by Daisy and it’s lovely. It looks great and feels meaningful when using it. It gives it a third dimension in knowing someone worked hard to produce something so fine. The polished wood, dyed black hide and a few small artistic touches to finish it off. You don’t have to have a large disposable income to be creative. For example, my friend Mr.Ham (Dom to Blomst) gave me a 30cm x 10cm piece of reinforced rubber mat. It was a off-cut from one of his projects to make an impact toy. She called it the Howler, and boy is it well named!  Having looked at the innocent piece of rubber I decided to fix it to a handle for better use. I search for old handles in the garage and left empty handed. I had a Eureka moment and after an hour an old chair leg became a handle. I was rather proud of myself. 

  

So next time you are in your local DIY store, view it as an extention to your favourite sex shop and let your imagination run wild!
