Exactly my thought. Just never understood the desire to spend so much energy on such a thing. Or space.

Apparently my friend's new job is one of those Ws... He is the Quality/Regulatory person for a lube manufacture -- he gets interesting packages every day for compatibility testing/etc.

Mary Roach's book Bonk had a passage relating to this surprisingly common hobby, and that part of Burn After Reading seemed to get it just about right. According to her research a typical scenario goes this way:
- Tinkerer husband gets it into his head to build a sex machine.
- Sex machine is built around the typical male idea of what gets a woman off: a dildo rhythmically moving in and out of the vulva (as opposed to a more focused stimulation of the clitoris).
- Wife uses machine once or twice to humor husband.
- Machine ends up for sale on eBay some months afterward.

I just read this bit myself and couldn't stop laughing because it's so TRUE. I particularly enjoyed the part where she asked a whole bunch of maker dudes at a sex machine "meet up" if they'd ever thought about incorporating clit stimulation, and there was this kind of awkward silence.
(BTW, I think you mean "moving in and out of the vagina" - vulva being the lips.)

You see, that's why I don't build sex machines.

I envision a new pavilion at the next Maker's Faire....should be interesting....
Now, will AdaFruit and/or Make sell kits or hold DIY workshops, that is the question.
Also, please feel free to tag up potential OS-spinoff names for these.
