"OMG You Made That?" usually specializes in the art of delicious cakes or adorable knit hats or some other form of harmless cuteness. This week instead, I couldn't help but sharing what recently arrived on my doorstep: Sex Machines: Photographs and Interviews by Timothy Archibald. The book is a collection of, you guessed it, photographs and interviews about guys who are building sex machines in their garages.
Anyone who frequents FuckingMachines.com (what, just me?) knows about sex machines: big, bulky things made out of old lawnmowers and such with dildos attached to one end. What makes this book fascinating is how normal the guys look who make them. Seeing a home-made sex machine juxtaposed with someone's living room full of porcelain kitties... Well, it's strangely endearing. So today "OMG You Made That?" salutes you, sex machine hobbyists, for introducing sex toys on power tool to suburban America.
