Death is no barrier to proudly displaying your love of theatrical heavy rock band Kiss, who launched their own coffin – the Kiss Kasket – in 2001.

4Rock Rod: Warren Cuccurullo’s Self-modeled Dildo
From Duran Duran to dildos
Good thing we didn’t find pictures for this one. In July of 2001, Duran Duran’s Guitarrist relaunched his fan club website, adding additional members-only sections that included sexually explicit material of himself having sexual relations, music downloads, a chat room, Q&A section, and message board. Despite his rapidly enlarging fanbase among gay males (and despite persistent rumors and requests), his adult material is all heterosexual in nature. Later that year, he created the “Rock Rod,” a self-modeled dildo that sold through the manufacturer’s website and in adult stores.In 2004, all adult material was removed from his website. Many clips of his porn work are regularly circulated on the web.
