If there’s one thing I truly, unfailingly get off on, it’s a good sex toy. Browsing through places like Babeland, I get excited, literally aroused. In a lot of ways, it’s much better than pornography: I know that I can get what I want, when I want it (give or take the five to seven days for delivery), and it’s all mine. Manufacturers are coming up with more ways to titillate, whether it’s the range of features, ergonomic design, or forms ranging from beautiful to outré.
Steampunk makes things hotter
As vibrators go, they’re a good complement to masturbation, but not the main star when it comes to my preferred way to orgasm: via g-spot stimulation. That’s not a con, especially since they come in so many vibrant colors and sensuous shapes, more so than the average dildo. It’s really hard not to fall in love with looks alone. I’ve seen and owned a lot of sexy looking paraphernalia, but I’ve never seen one that was so steampunk. I found the Eroscillator while on a mission to feed a burgeoning fetish for stocking porn. (Tip o’ the hat to Dungeon Place, which is where I found a review.) In true steampunk style, the Eroscillator has about a dozen attachments, a brushed-brass look—all it’s lacking are the superficial rivets to really drive the theme home—and a beautifully engineered motor.

Why is there no Steampunk Porn?
Victorian sexual repression and fetishism mixed with Edisonade machines is an incredibly heady notion. Clockwork automaton sex slaves, or torturous, endlessly reciprocating dildos. The possibilities are infinite. And I’m not alone (or completely crazy) in thinking there’s something hot about steampunk:
“There is a certain romance to any sufficiently outdated technology. Clockwork has a visceralness [sic] to it. It is hopelessly analogue in a digital world. It is obsolete excellence. The idea that Charles Babbage’s difference engine really could perform along side a modern Cray supercomputer is strangely sexy.”

As attractive as the notion seems, there was no porn, and no erotica to be found in an evening’s search. That doesn’t mean it’s not out there, but I’m having a hell of a time finding any. I found more steam- and cyberpunk art searching for porn and sex toys than anything else. (There was all of one “sex toy”. If anyone knows of any, I’d love a link.) There were some very erotic shots by photographer Allan Amato at Steampunk Boudoir Porn. Jake von Slatt from The Steampunk Workshop has some sexier projects going on. Even though they’re not sex toys, he does have the Complete Mechanical Womb—and a lovely tale of it’s creator, the first fictional intersex character I’ve ever encountered. For a budding steampunk gun-fetishist, enamoring rayguns: Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators.
Steampunk is ripe for erotic modification, giving us a new genre of porn.
