Our Mission
The sex toy industry is on the rise, yet it remains largely unregulated. 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, unaffiliated and 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).

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. Additionally, our “Donate to Deformulate” campaign will give anyone with deep enough pockets the ability to queue a product anonymously – send us a money order for the amount required to purchase and test a certain product, and we’ll happily add that product to our database. Email us at donations@dildology.org for more information.

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. Thanks for your interest. Be sure to spread the word. And, remember:  In Dildo Veritas

consentis

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting a consent workshop on

Monday December 3rd at 7pm.

The facilitator of the consent workshop is Crystal.

Crystal will start with a consent 101 briefing, and then move onto further discussion of consent, and possible scenarios with audience participation to practice consent.

There will be plenty of opportunity for group discussion of consent.

Consent is for everyone, and something you can never really know enough about. If you’ve had problems with consent, if you’ve been called out, if it’s been a while since you’ve gone to a consent workshop, if you engage with other humans on this planet, then maybe it is about time you attended a consent workshop!

This is a sober, all ages event.

The Wingnut is located at 2005 Barton Avenue, Richmond VA 23222
