The Cremaster: Grandfather’s Clock

These aesthetically pleasing sex toys were conceived to help normalise our ideas on lust. Bastiaan Buijs believes lust is as normal as feeling hungry or thirsty, and the attributes people use to indulge it need not be hidden away. He has created a range of toys for women which are visually striking yet ready to use. ‘Grandfather’s Clock’ is one of them: a wind-up vibrator made of durable materials. The copper clockwork is visible through the hand-blown glass and held in place with a cork stopper. Your eye is drawn to it, what about your body?
