Friction Over Dildo Workshop Shatters New Zealand Pottery Club

From New Zealand's Stuff.com

A ceramic dildo-making workshop has caused a relationship breakdown in the senior ranks of a Wellington’s potters’ association.

Wellington Potters’ Association former president Nicole Gaston resigned her position over disagreement over the workshop, leaving the club without anybody in the top job.

The drama started when Gaston raised the idea to the association’s committee that visiting Mexican artist Iza Lozano could host workshops where members would learn how to create dildos using mixed techniques such as wheel-throwing and hand-building.

“As a thermal, hypoallergenic, easy-to-sterilise and resistant material, ceramic sex toys are fun, beautiful, safe and suitable for all bodies,” an advertisement for the now-cancelled event said.

However, advertisements were abruptly pulled after Gaston said several senior members of the committee objected to it going ahead.

Gaston felt like the situation was a “huge injustice”, as several members of the association had written letters in support of the event to the committee, which Stuff has seen.

Though I'm a big fan of most things dildo related, I must also concede that old folks & dildo workshops probably mix about as well as Metamucil & ketchup.. It shouldn't have been too surprising that senior members were scandalized & put a halt to it. That being said, come on, olds! Live a little! Or at least let the youngs & hornys live a little & simply stay away from this one. For shaaame. 

In the meantime, as Wellington Potters Association tries to piece itself back together, I'm sure that from wax to whittling to resin & beyond there's other workshops out there for those with a creative hole to fill…
