‘DILDO’ Sex Pottery Causing A Major Ruckus

A New Zealand-based ceramic dildo-making workshop is causing a huge ruckus with those who are sensitive about the big ‘D’.

According to website stuff.co.nz, the Wellington Potters’ Association advertised a workshop hosted by Mexican artist Iza Lozano where patrons would learn how to create ceramic dildos. Apparently, the workshop caused such a rift within the association that its president, Nicole Gaston, quit after a squabble over it.

Descriptions in advertisements described the now-cancelled workshop as “a thermal, hypoallergenic, easy-to-sterilize and resistant material, ceramic sex toys are fun, beautiful, safe and suitable for all bodies.”

Then-president Gaston presented the workshop idea to several senior members of the association who strongly objected to it.

Gaston told Stuff that association members felt the workshop was too “provocative” and “inappropriate.” She said the situation was a “huge injustice.”

Gaston said she felt the committee was underestimating the open-mindedness of the association’s membership. The workshop would have been empowering for gender minorities and was intended to be a safe space to be body and sex-positive.

In response, the potters’ association said it had decided the final workshops of the year would be sculpture based, noting it was “surprised” by Gaston’s proposal on holding dildo workshops and how its contents would be concerning to the “membership at large.”
