From THE LOCAL (Germany):
Dresden has long been known as centre for quality
handicrafts, but an erotic shop is taking a new twist on
the tradition. The collection of sexy unmentionables in
Dina Stiebing's window display garners ample attention
from people passing by her store, but its the stone dildos
that have been turning heads most recently. After
travelling the world for six years as a pole dancer, Stiebing
returned to Dresden to open “Fem2Glam” with the aim of
bringing international style to the city's erotic performers.
“I grew up climbing all over boulder formations of Elbe
sandstone near what they call the ‘Gateway to Saxon
Switzerland,’” she said, referring to the nearby mountainous
national park that is popular with rock climbers.
“These items are a special piece of the region.”
Stiebing’s cousin, a stonemason, told her about the designer
dildos which RelaxSTONE manufacturer Jan Lorenz began
making and selling online last year, and she was determined
to become Dresden’s first retail seller.
Lorenz chose Elbe sandstone out of what he called “local pride.
“The stone has a warm, sunny colour that’s simply beautiful,
and all the pieces are one-of-a-kind,” he said.
Lorenz now awaits patent approval for his dildos, which are
coated with a smooth, waterproof, dishwasher-safe glaze,
and sell for between €85 and €120.
However, dear reader, if that still sounds a bit chilling to be poking around your delicate parts there's always this line,
also from Germany. But do watch for splinters!
