These oak hands are made to look like claws, and they’re an unexpected and fun addition to foreplay. They can help create those sexy, energetic tingles that precede excellent sex. Here’s one place to start: Have your partner gently drag them from the inside of your ankles up towards your groin. (A silk blindfold is a solid foundation for this kind of sensation-centered play.) When you’re done, they’re easily stored in plain sight—if you lace the fingers together, they make a killer cookbook stand.
Father-daughter duo Fred Masaro and Alexis Dodd are in the business of transforming reclaimed antique wood into the sleekest charcuterie boards, serving trays, bowls, pizza paddles, and hand-carved spoons we’ve ever seen. By embracing the wood’s knots, marks, and imperfections, they’re able to give a second life to what would otherwise be discarded material. Sustainable, durable, and meticulously crafted, these pieces will be your dinner-party fixtures and kitchen-counter mainstays.
