    How Water Temperature Affects Your 3D Penis Alginate Mold

    When making a 3D alginate mold of your penis, proper water temperature is crucial. A few degrees off can mean the difference between a perfect mold and a failed attempt. This is especially true when molding an erect penis. 

    You may not realize it, but erections can be quickly lost. Without stimulus, the average man has approximately 2 minutes before he begins to lose his erection. The Clone-A-Willy Kit is designed with this in mind. Our specially formulated, body safe alginate allows enough time to mix it with water, pour it into your molding tube, and insert your penis, without needing to hold so long that you'll lose your erection. The Clone-A-Willy penis casting kit requires holding an erection for just 60 seconds.   No problem! 

    Proper water temperature is the key. Use the thermometer included in each kit to reach correct water temperature and follow the directions from there. Specific, body temperature water will give consistent results every time. Using warmer water will make the mixture gel faster – using cooler water will make it gel more slowly.

    With Clone-A-Willy's specially formulated 3D alginate molding gel, creating a perfect mold of your manhood is a breeze!

    The Science of Sex: Do lubricants kill sperm?

    by David Claus, Ph.D.

    Recent evidence shows they just might. It's not only those containing spermicides that are potentially toxic to sperm - they all might be - at least to some degree.

    Years of peer reviewed, published research has shown that most sexual lubricants can decrease sperm's mobility, making it more difficult to reach an egg (1), but now there's a fair amount of credible research suggesting that those same lubricants might actually be toxic to sperm (2).

    Just about all of the top selling lubricant brands have been studied, and time after time, mobility, motility and viability of sperm were dramatically reduced after exposure to the lube. Even in small concentrations these lubes not only impeded sperm's ability to swim, but also decreased their ability to survive and/or caused possible damage to their chromosomes (3).

    What is it about these lubricants that is actually harming sperm?
    It might be their acidity. Ideally the best pH value environment for a healthy sperm is between 7.0 and 8.5, or slightly alkaline. Lubricants tend to have pH values below 7, making most of them acidic. Some lubricants have pH values as low as 3 or 4. These overly acidic environments can cause sperm death. Actually, the vagina's own natural acidic secretions can even kill sperm.  However, just before ovulation the pH of the cervical mucus rises slightly, which helps protect the sperm during this time.

    Sperm are also sensitive to both high and low osmolality (concentration of osmotically active particles in solution) because these can cause the cells to either shrink or swell too much. A physiologic osmolality around 320 mOsm/kg (that of semen) is best for sperm function (4). Sperm motility decreases with exposure to increasing osmolality, with all motion stopping at 600 mOsm or greater. Lubricants have osmolality levels 3-10 times that of semen that causes irreversible damage to sperm motility. Even water based lubricants can contain glycerin (also potentially toxic to sperm) or propylene glycol, both of which are highly hyperosmotic.

    Should you believe the marketing?
    Many leading brands state in their marketing material that they "will not kill sperm" or that they have "no effect on sperm motility." This is in spite of published literature to the contrary. There are hundreds of personal lubricants on the market nowadays, offering everything from 'purely organic' versions to brands that contain spermicides, create heating sensations, or even include numbing agents. In our research, the 'Pure,' 'Natural' or 'Organic' versions fare no better than the others.  If you are trying to conceive, one lube called Pre Seed claims to be completely 'sperm friendly,' and appears to have the actual data to back it up (5).

    The Science of Sex: Is 3D Penis Printing a reality?

    by David Claus, Ph.D.

    Though quite cool and no doubt the wave of the future, most of what you've heard about 3D printing has been a bit over-hyped (click HERE for an interesting narrative by a man who does it for a living).  3D printing, particularly the 3D printing of a man's penis, isn't quite as easy or straightforward as the media might have you think.  In reality, it requires an impressive camera - one that can scan in three dimensions and is capable of creating a virtual model of any object, or sophisticated CAD/CAM software with a compatible camera and the know-how to use it.  You'll also need a very EXPENSIVE 3D printer. The current, affordable consumer grade printers simply won’t cut it, as the build volume (or printable output size) is typically too small to print anything other than a very small object (perhaps a micro-penis).

    Unless you have all of the above, you'll need to utilize a service that has the appropriate equipment and can take care of everything for you (contact questions@empirelabs.com).  Note that doing it this way will require traveling to a location away from home and allowing a technician take images of your erection, which is a bit inconvenient and could be a little uncomfortable. Sitting in a room and keeping an erection while a stranger takes a video or series of pictures of you isn't for everyone.  The benefit to this method, though, is that you won't have to do anything else.  Everything is taken care of from that point on. The cost is approximately $250.00, and like the Clone-A-Willy Kit, it'll take just a day to see your result.  Your result will be a plastic copy of your manhood, basically true to size and shape, though not as detailed as you might like.  If you're looking for a usable dildo, the object created from the 3D printer isn't going to be strong enough or even body-safe. For that, your 3D printed penis will need to be sent away to have a mold created from it.  That mold will then be filled with silicone (or some other body-safe material), left to cure, and sent back to you.  At that point, your finished, USABLE copy will be complete. The result is pretty good, but not as intricate as what you’d get from a direct mold and cast process. A 3D copy will contain layer lines (in 3D printing, each thin layer is printed one at a time, creating 'lines' in your finished piece), which will prevent much of the detail from coming through. Using a camera to catch every small line and vein is just not as precise as forming a mold directly from the actual body part, either.  And the details are really what make copying your own (or your favorite) penis so cool.  A copy that's the same size and shape as you, but doesn't have all the little quirks that make you unique, is just not as interesting or fun.

    We'll continue working hard to improve and perfect the 3D penis printing process, but for now our recommendation is still to go with the original Clone-A-Willy Kit. It's quick, anonymous (do everything yourself from home), and the end result is far more precise. 

    Copy your penis like the dudes in the Neighbors movie

    When faced with a flooded basement and possible condemnation of their Delta Psi house, the frat boys of Neighbors use Clone-A-Willy kits to make copies of their dicks and sell them as dildos on campus.

    You may not be dealing with impending loss of house and party palace, but you can still make a dildo from your own penis just like Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. In the Neighbors movie, the guys create manhood molds and silicone dildos using the Clone-A-Willy kit. This kit contains everything you need to make an exact silicone copy of your penis from the privacy and comfort of your own home or frat. Clone-A-Willy comes in many colors of body-safe silicone, including Glow in the Dark, so you can customize your own dildo to fit your skin tone or your attitude.

    Check out info on the Neighbors movie here, and catch it and us in theaters starting May 9th.
