About The Project

Dildology.org intends to provide material verification services and maintain a public database of the results, adding transparency and oversight to the industry while educating the public about the science behind pleasure products. We stand on our own, uninfluenced, and we are dedicated to protecting the health and wellbeing of the dildo-loving population at large through education (and maybe a little entertainment).

Dildology.org needs cash to get started, though. Operating costs include purchasing dildos to test, lab costs for testing those dildos (testing currently runs around $200 for the basics, and $450 for the works), purchasing dildometric testing equipment, and printing stickers and t-shirts for fundraising merchandise and rewards. 

We're starting small here, with a goal of $3,000 - that'll probably cover the testing costs of four sex toys, plus a little for administrative overhead (shipping, rewards, et cetera). And if we end up with more money? Then we'll test more dildos! We're currently in the process of filing for 501(c)(3) status, too, so you'll be able to see for yourselves where the money is going.

 

Our Mission:

WE WILL:

* accept monetary donations.
* accept product donations from third-party retail stores and wholesalers.
* purchase products from third-party retail stores.
* choose products to test based on community feedback.
* send products to accredited labs for testing.
* compare the material composition of products to the manufacturers’ claims.
* share the results of lab tests with manufacturers.
* record the results of the lab tests in our wiki.
* make our wiki available to the public.
* provide other educational resources to the public.

WE WILL NOT:

* accept product donations directly from manufacturers.
* test second-hand products – only those acquired directly from retail stores and wholesalers.
* test any product manufactured more than one year ago.
* publish opinions about products or manufacturers – only facts.
* falsify data, for any reason.
* suppress or fail to publish the results of any test.

We intend to test a wide range of sex toy brands and materials, and we currently have a list of products that we plan to test first. After that, which products we test will be determined by requests from the community, via our forum, via email, or anonymously via the web. 

We live in a world rich with discoverable data. There’s no reason to guess when you can know. To that end, Dildology.org will apply itself, and maybe – just maybe – we can change the world for the better.

Stretch Goals

Goal Details
$10,000 Dildology.org - Sustaining the Infrastructure

If we hit $10,000 we won't be scraping by anymore this year. We'll have the funds to cover all the piddly little business costs like shipping and banking fees, the manufacture of fundraising merchandise, all while testing at least 10 new pleasure products and adding them to the database.

Every toy we test brings us that much closer to the goal of a regulated sex toy industry. And every dollar you donate, in one way or another, facilitates that goal. 

$20,000 Dildology.org - Expanding our Scope

If we hit $20,000 we'll be able to have a little fun. We can purchase some dildometric equipment for our planned educational series - Dildology 101, 201, and 301 - Kitchen Methods, Industrial Methods, and Laboratory Methods, respectively. We'll do dildo science experiments and publish the methods and results so our viewers at home have more than just the "flame test" to rely on. Plus we'll be able to afford to test something like 15 dildos.

Additionally, we'll be able to start work on our more entertaining fundraisers, like the Dildology Calendar - sexy scientists in lab coats and little else, experimenting with dildos we've tested and verified. We'll even overlay the polymer data for the featured product on the image of the month.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you testing dildos?
Because no one else is doing it, and because they can be made from toxic materials. Phthalates especially, which were banned from use in children's toys in the US in 2008, are still sometimes used as plasticizers (read: the ingredients that make materials softer) in sex toys. In short, we test dildos to make sure they're made of the stuff it says on the box, and to make sure they won't give you cancer.
How are you testing dildos?
We send them to science labs where they undergo FTIR and GC/MS analysis. Basically, they check the molecular content of the toy and report it back to us. And then we report it to you in our wiki and on the Verified page of our website.
