    The Science of Sex: What Makes the Glow in the Dark Penis Kit Glow?

    penis kit glow

    Everyone here at Empire Labs agrees that the idea of making an exact silicone copy of any penis is really cool, but making a copy that glows in the dark? Even cooler! What exactly is it that makes your Glow in the Dark dildo glow, though?
    Your finished dildo will glow by a process known as zinc sulfide phosphorescence. Zinc sulfide (not to be confused with zinc sulfate, which has a very different molecular structure) is mixed with a precise concentration of a metal 'activator', which essentially allows it to store light energy. An easy way to think of how it works is to compare an activated zinc sulfide molecule to our solar system. The sun is its nucleus, consisting of positive charges (protons) and neutral charges (neutrons). The planets spinning around the sun are like the electrons, all in orbit around the nucleus. Light gets these electrons excited and causes them to take on energy. When the electrons become excited they move farther away from the nucleus into higher orbits. The electrons will remain in this excited state as long as they receive light to energize them. When the light source is removed, the electrons will slowly return to their original lower orbits. As they drop down, the energy that excited them in the first place is released in the form of light. This is known as zinc sulfide phosphorescence, and it's what makes your penis copy glow so brightly.
    You only have to expose your dildo to light for a few minutes to see it work, but more charging means more glowing, so you might wanna let it sit a while and charge. Depending on how long your dildo is exposed to light, this glow effect or 'light release' can take place over an hour or even more. 

     

    Whatever your definition of a highly unique sex toy might be, it likely won't even come close to a Glow in the Dark Clone-A-Willy Kit!

    Why is Cloning-A-Willy Even Easier With A Sexy Helper?

    Creating an exact silicone copy of your penis using one of our casting kits is pretty simple and straightforward, but there is a reason we suggest using a sexy helper for the process. 

    Cock kit mixingErections can be quickly and easily lost, especially when your mind is on mixing and pouring things.  In order to create the negative mold, your erect penis has to remain in the molding gel for 1-2 minutes, implying you won't need to hold an erection any longer than that.  Not a problem for most men.  BUT... keep in mind that PREPARING the molding gel takes an additional 2 minutes.  So if you're doing the process by yourself, you're looking at holding an erection for up to 4 minutes straight.  This is also not normally a problem for most men... if they're being stimulated.  Without physical or mental stimulation, though, you just might lose that big, happy erection you're trying to capture forever in silicone. 
    A sexy helper can fix this.  While your helper is busy mixing and pouring, you can tend to your erection, ensuring it's fully engorged and ready to go when it's time to insert yourself into the mold. 
    Although there are other ways to help maintain your erection during the molding process (erectile enhancement pills, cock ring, penis pump, etc), the simplest, most fun, and our top recommended method is to just to get a hand from a sexy helper.

    The Science of Sex: Do Penis Pumps Really Work?

    It all depends on how you define 'work'. A penis pump is definitely effective at filling your penis with as much blood as possible, thereby creating your largest erection possible, but whether or not it produces any kind of permanent change is still questionable.

    penis pump dick kitA flaccid penis grows by filling its internal cavities (the corpora cavernosa and corpora spongiosum) with blood, while using the ischiocavernosus and bulbospongiosus muscles to prevent that blood from escaping. These two simultaneous actions engorge the penis and help keep it that way. 

    A penis pump works on much the same principle. The basic idea is to insert your flaccid or soft penis into a tube, seal it off so that no air can get in or out, then pump out as much of the air as possible. Something has to fill the void left behind, which in this case is your penis.  The more air you pump out, the more your penis will 'grow' or expand to fill the space. Theoretically, if you could remove ALL the air in the sealed tube while your penis is inside, your penis would have to expand to fill the entire area of the tube. This of course is not typically possible, and if you really were to force out every last ounce of air, you'd likely cause damage. Cock cast penis pumpThat said, the general principle behind a penis pump is sound and works quite well, at least in the short-term. Achieving any long term or permanent size-increases with a penis pump is not nearly as evident or absolute, however. Some research suggests that consistent use of a penis pump may help expand the corpora cavernosa and spongiosum, and may slightly stretch the suspensory ligaments, resulting in overall size and length gains, but the jury's still out on this.

    One thing that is indisputable: The Clone-A-Willy Kit works exceptionally well in conjunction with a penis pump. It will allow you to achieve and help maintain your largest possible erection before molding. So if you want to capture yourself at you biggest, you just might want to try a pump.
