The Semenette® is featured in Objects of Desire: A Showcase of Modern Erotic Products and the Creative Minds Behind Them. The innovative conception device is featured in the hardcover book, amongst over one hundred featured products, which blur the line between tech, art, design, and function.
“It is an incredible honor to be chosen alongside so many other amazing pleasure products,” says Semenette® CEO Stephanie Berman. “It has always been a goal of ours to put the romance and pleasure back into the ‘trying to conceive’ process, which can often feel clinical and cold. To have our product recognized in this capacity, as well as the technology and design of the product, is truly incredible.”
Objects of Desire is released through Schiffer Publishing, with text by Rita Catinella Orrell and design by Jason Scuderi. Product photography of The Semenette® was provided by Isabel Dresler.
“The world of erotic product design is revealed in this curated showcase of over 100 beautifully crafted objects and the creative minds behind them,” the book description says. “The latest adult toys, jewelry, and accessories from leading companies, as well as intriguing prototypes, are featured. Each product, from high-tech gadgets to handcrafted pieces of art, is presented with concise descriptions in a minimal graphic format that emphasizes the flowing curves, materiality, and overall design of the products.”
The description continues, “Once taboo, sex toys are in the midst of a design revolution. With a foreword by Sarah Forbes, curator at New York City’s Museum of Sex, and in-depth interviews with leading sex bloggers, shop owners, and designers, the book will appeal to both fans of good design as well as ‘lovers’ of good design interested in acquiring these pieces for their own collections.”
The 272-page hardcover book, featuring 274 stunning color and b&w photos, is slated for a March 2016 release. Objects of Desire is currently available for pre-order through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Indie Bound, and directly via Schiffer Books (http://www.
