A picture of your face on the end of a vibrator.
Imagine giving your wife/girlfriend a multi-speed dildo with your smiling face on it.
Using a dye-sublimation heat press/transfer onto polyester/plastic, customers via mail-order, or advertised in sex shops, would merely provide a picture of themselves
with text if any to go onto the product.
A warning label would suggest its use for 'ornamental purposes only' to evade any legal liability if customers return to point of sale with very colourful genitalia - (this however shouldn't happen, as the dye-sub heat transfer sets the ink into the polyester - a process used for coffee mugs now that are dish-washer compatible).
This idea could extend to pictures of celebrities i.e Ricky Martin, Britney Spears, Spice Girls, Pokemon etc - to which licensing would need to be obtained if the business grew large enough. Perhaps though this could be side stepped if the products were marketed as 'art', suggesting parody.

Similar idea but looks different and not as personal as your own face [benfrost, Aug 07 2001]

||Do women actually fantasize about their partners?
||it depends. not if they're electric and dye-sub heat transferred though.
Beeeeeg Fishbone. Those little rabbit ear things and the whizzy-round ball bearings are quite enough to cope with.
||I'll run it by my wife. Or does it run by batteries?
