News: the rise of affordable 3D printers is sparking a boom in demand for personalised sex toys that can be ordered online or printed at home. A raft of new companies are springing up to cater for the growing market for toys that can be customised according to taste and fabricated on domestic printers, preventing the potential awkwardness of receiving items in the post.
