D.2_ikon-bilde-Laid

You know when something feels so nice in your hands that you can’t help but just…fondle it? Well that’s what you get with the Laid D.2. Developed by Norwegian designers and looking unlike anything I’ve seen in a very long while, the Laid is carved from Absolute Black Granite that is quarried in the Shanxi region of China and is approximately 500 million years old.

Let’s just think about that for a minute – the Laid gives you the chance to put half a billion years of geological history up your fouf.

It is a thing of beauty – shiny and heavy and aesthetically just downright gorgeous. The shape means it’s easy to hold and use and the weight gives it, well…’a good bit of heft’ is the only way I can describe it. The stone that it’s made from is most commonly used for very expensive kitchen worktops, so is unlikely to wear out in a hurry, however overworked it is. YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.

It comes in lovely natural card packaging – irrelevant to the fitness for purpose obvs, but these things make a difference. The whole package looks designed – and with care, not by an intern who’s just finished their graphic design HND and is determined to use every trick they learnt on their final project.

The kind of toy that you could give as a luxury gift, the Laid is one of those rare toys that you could genuinely display on the mantelpiece and claim as modern art (or ancient art – there is evidence of stone dildos being used way back in prehistory). I absolutely love it.

The Laid D.2 retails at £80.95 and is currently only available in the UK through Simply Pleasure – click here for details (opens in new window)

I am sent items free of charge for review purposes but I am not paid for reviews and my opinions / those of my reviewers will always be honest (in fact if I really hate something it’s more likely that I just won’t review it at all and will go back to the manufacturer and ask them WTF they were thinking). I get a – very – small commission from any purchases made from links on SDRR, which goes towards site costs. I adhere to all advertising rules and always use ‘no follow’ links where appropriate.
