Crochet Cunts and Cocks: An Optimistic Cynic

Welcome to Crochet Cunts and Cocks! There were just so many wonderful artists sharing crocheted genitalia on Etsy I thought it would be fun to show off a bunch of them in a series.

-who knew a soft dick could be so appealing? —


An Optomistic Cynic is a great example of how odd it is that some human anatomy is considered NSFW. Sarah Burns, the shop owner explores all kinds of anatomy, ranging from the internal structures of the knee to neurons, all in wonderful soft crochet. Of course, she doesn’t gloss over the cocks and cunts! I just find it odd that you could show an ear, or even a uterous without an uproar, but the second you snap a nipple broach on, you’re going to get wide eyed reproach.

My favorite from her selection is most likely the drawstring scrotum bag. I’d totally carry loose change in there! Find these and many many more in her Etsy shop.

About the shop in her own words.

How much do you really know about the parts you’re made up of? Click around, learn something, or just have a laugh at the crocheted pancreas.

I live/work/play in NYC. I work a day job at an art store, and I am almost constantly covered in glitter.
