Your 3D-Printed Sex Toy Is Growing Bacteria

Excerpt:

You can find free 3D printing blueprints for dildos and plugs, saving you some of the hassle and potential embarrassment of picking one up IRL. But these toys aren’t ready for use right off of the printer, and can cause internal damage while spreading germs in the process.
