Yay technology and all but there are two problems. First of all FTA- 'In addition, the material used for printing, polyvinyl alcohol, is water-soluable, meaning that water-based lubricants can't be used.' Bodily fluids are water based too. Using one of these is like using a PVA suppository. Also the current DIY 3D printers produce rough surfaces. Look at the Hello Kitty dildo in the link. It's full of nooks and crannies that would be almost imposible to sanitize properly. It's a bacteria factory!

Not unsolvable problems.
As someone mentioned above, you could dip the final product in latex or cover it in a condom to solve both issues.
You could also use the... object to cast a mold (or maybe print the mold itself) and then cast what you want out of a better material.

There's plenty of ABS printers too. If ABS was water soluble, we'd have other problems...

The article is wrong. Shocking, I know.

PVA is actually a rarity in 3D printing, since it's twice as expensive as PLA (Poly lactic-acid) or ABS. It does dissolve in water, so it's useful as a support material rather than a primary material. The only reason you'd make anything entirely out of PVA is if you planned to use it to make a mold, or AS a mold, that you could then dissolve away.

They can 3D print their junk and go frak themselves with this nonsense.
