Meet Clone-A-Willy

Empire Labs (aka Clone-a-Willy and Clone-a-Pussy) have been friends and supporters of Project Object from the beginning. It was a no-brainer friendship since we both call Portland home and believe in sexual empowerment.  This month, they made our DIY Sex Robot class become more accessible for all women and non-binary people in the Portland-area. We interviewed with them about issues they care about and how self love take many forms. Tell us a little bit about Empire Labs. Empire Labs was formed in the San Francisco Bay area back in 1996.

Maya Vivas Tell us a little bit about yourself. I am a Afro-Latinx Queer Femme; sculptor, performance artist and activist. Through my work I explore concepts of race, identity, and gender as filtered through my own experiences.

My family, both blood related and chosen, have...
