Creative Inspirations for Her Deliciously Designed Dildos
When asked about what drives her inspiration and goals for what she’s creating, a deeper sense of her motivations become apparent.
“I live downtown in LA’s fashion district, so I’m always inspired,” Stein continues. “At first I wanted to create a visual representation of every guy I ever slept with. But that as inspiration got boring, because well, not all of them deserved art for their penis. Now, I’m more inspired by things people will say, good dick puns, and pop culture.”
Even more, contemplating the sociopolitical impact of her art, Stein noted, “It’s important that I’m a female profiting from dick without exploiting or trafficking anyone. Think about how many men, brands, etc profit off of the appeal of the female body. As a female working in today’s society, everyone has an idea of what a female should be, how they should act. I hate that. You are either a qualified human or not, and how you feel about sex, how you talk about it, as long as you are always acting with consent, should have nothing to do with it. I could go on forever about the problems I see with how sexuality is shamed for females in society- we should save that for our next conversation."
"As far as [Adult Arts and Crafts], the US government is making so many restrictive laws on women’s bodies these days. If [they] expect women to be reproductive machines, then we should at least allow them to have fun in the process... I just want as many people as possible having access to having ‘dickor’."
Yes, a play on “decor.” This is her self-appointed name for her art.

What's Next for Jen Stein?
Ultimately, as far as next steps for the brand, Stein is both realistic and hilarious regarding goals and sustainability.
“I’m putting the time into it that I can. It’s still a hobby. Currently, I have more ideas than dildos to create with, and even if I did, I don’t have space to store all of these completed dildos in my apartment.”
Then, not missing a beat, she deadpans, “It’s a good way to relax, you know? I hammer a couple of nails into a dick before I go to bed at night.”
