A different kind of plastic that's actually used in medical procedures and stuff like that. But when you use it in a very loose, gelatinous kind of application, it kind of makes what really turns out to be like Jell-O.
The interesting thing about that is that it was the consistency of the human flesh, it just didn't have the resiliency or the stretch or anything, so in my mad-scientist garage I had to mix different levels of polymers and keep notes and get to a point where I could actually make something that could stretch and then return to its normal size and not lose the appearance.
That was my biggest tackle, and I did that, but it took me a lot more time and money than I thought it was going to take.
Do you have a background in that kind of area of mixing materials or was it kind of just self-taught?
It was all self-taught. I knew I had to nail the product, but I had no education. I knew that the Internet was coming, I just didn't know how to get there. So I started designing materials and mixing and matching and, honestly, my grandfather was part of the invention of the gliders for the military for World War II. I just felt like in my blood I had an engineer's background to match my mad-scientist mentality.
"I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box, but I'm probably the most sexually driven person."
So, I knew that if I could nail a product that would give men the true feeling of the actual biological sex function, that would at least be some kind of option to the lives that they were leading -- driven by their dick is what it boiled down to. That's really what drove me to keep mixing... I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box, but I'm probably the most sexually driven person.
My sex drive is probably, you know, I wouldn't say it's higher now than when I was 11, but it's always been a little off the charts, maybe a little too much. But we all assume and deal with what we have, and I knew I needed to nail this thing because it was a critical need for us guys.
