Our umbrella company, Diamond Products, also caught a few glimmers of the Australian spotlight with an awesome Jimmyjane Form 5 review and an editorial introducing our latest acquisition of Sir Richard’s Condoms

Billed as “Pleasure Time Three,” Form 5 works for men, women, and couples. For women, the theory is that the fluttering wings caress the labia whilst the dome targets the clitoris, rather like combining a pebble vibrator with a bullet. You can also use the wings for on-point clitoral massage of a different sensation, or on nipples and other sensitive areas – for example, the temples and sinuses (no, not a sex thing, I just found it helped ease the pain.) —Mia More, journalist and reviewer, cliterati.co.uk

STIMULATE ALL OF THE THINGS!!!!!!

Sir Richard’s Founder, Mathew Gerson, who in 2005 started online retailer Econscious Market, which sells eco-friendly products and donates up to 10% of the retail price of each sale to charity, was reading a book about Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners in Health. He learned that condoms, which are cheap to produce and the most effective way to avoid HIV and other infections, were no readily available to those disadvantaged regions. So in 2009, Mathew founded Sir Richard’s Condoms. Its mission is to address a massive global shortage of condoms. To do this, the company has the unique philosophy of donating one condom to a developing nation for every one that they sell. To date, Sir Richard’s has donated over 2.2 million of them. With sexual wellness and reproductive health in mind, they chose to make Sir Richard’s Condoms of all-natural latex and silicone lubricant. They also left out a range of seriously unsexy chemicals (parabens, spermicide, or glycerin), common ingredients in some other brands’ products. —page 29, Synergy

Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Last Man On Earth Take Exclusive Pipedream Tour!

Besides sex toys, entertainment is probs the next big love of mine. I love music, I love movies, I love TV. As an only child, I spent all of my after school evenings and summertime afternoons with Ren and Stimpy, Bart and Lisa, Zim and Gir. And now, even as a “grown-up” with a nine to five, I still love cartoons, but now I’m just chilling with the likes of Finn and Jake, Beavis and Butt-head, and Tina, Gene, and Louise. So when the voice of Louise — Kristen Schall — name dropped Pipedream on Conan a few weeks ago, I basically lost my shit. Long story short, I tweeted her, connected with a rep for Last Man On Earth, and setup a Pipedream tour!

You’d think the glitz and glam of Hollywood would keep our movie-making neighbors way too busy and entertained to make their way over to our side of Lassen Street, but it turns out that touring a dildo factory is an offer that no one can refuse. In fact, the LMOE rep had to contact us multiple times to increase the size of the tour because as word got around the LMOE office, everyone wanted in on the typically NSFW fun! So on Monday, October 26th around noon, Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, and about 20 writers and crew members walked the few Chatsworth blocks from their studio to Pipedream headquarters for an exclusive tour.

Serving as Master of Ceremonies was our VP of Development Rob Phaneuf (aka Midget Man!), who always gives the best, most in-depth and hilarious Pipedream tours whenever we host special guests. This dude has been with the company for ten years now, so he knows everything and anything you’d want to know about the history of Pipedream, the intricate details of development and business… and all of the sexual innuendos, of course. Our offices alone offered plenty of laughs, from walls lined with poster-sized porn stars and King Cocks to the 20-pound ass that ever-so-casually calls my desk its home.

Next stop was a swift walk through our ridickulously massive shipping department before catching a blast of the sweet aroma that is our lube manufacturing facility. This room seriously smells like a candy store and one of the crew members  commented, “It’s like the Willy Wonka factory of sex toys!” We took a peek at our multimedia studio, impressing even Hollywood’s best with our sweet production setup. But then finally came the moment everyone was waiting for… THE DILDO FACTORY!!!!

We probably spent most of our time over at the toy manufacturing facility. Everyone was so enamored by every little detail – the molds, the pouring, the “baking”, the cooling, the quality control, the finishing touches by hand. I was especially surprised by Will Forte’s reaction – he was super intrigued by everything and there were plenty of times when he’d linger far behind the tour, watching and filming every process of manufacturing. My favorite part was watching him film our cooling mechanism – there was a cluster of brown King Cocks getting ready to plop from the conveyor belt, but they were moving sooooooooo slooooooowwwwwwww, and Will stood there filming the whooooooooole thiiiiiiiiiiiiiing! I laughed with a crew member about it and he was just like, “Well, that’s Will for ya. When he commits, he commits.”

So there you have it! Pipedream has the coolest neighbors and it turns out that no matter your industry – mainstream or adult – there’s one thing we can all agree on: sex toys are awesome, whether it’s for an orgasm or a laugh.

Tales From The Road: Picturesque Plan-O-Gramming

When I visit a new city for some face time with a retailer, I’m hoping to arrive to two types of pleasant views: a well Plan-O-Grammed store, and some gorgeous natural backdrops to accompany my drive. What do adult novelty merchandising displays and mountains have in common? Absolutely nothing, unless you’re a nature lover who also happens to interface with adult retailers for a living!

Last Fall, I was greeted with the best of both worlds when I arrived in Reno, Nevada. My customer could not have followed our suggested Plan-O-Grams more beautifully in his boutique-style shops. During the downtime between the staff trainings and consumer events we set up, he suggested that I take a drive up to nearby Lake Tahoe. I was in business trip heaven! My office was thrilled with the results of my customer visit, and I got to take in some of the most stunning views of the Reno area.

The Plan-O-Grammer, for those who aren’t familiar, is our custom software that aids us in designing product layout on a wall within a store to best increase sales. It’s a typical concept to those in retail – visual merchandising, really – but it’s especially important for adult novelty manufacturers. Everyone has grown up knowing popular brands of clothing and food, but how many can name the company that makes his or her favorite adult toy? This is where a Plan-O-Gram comes in. Stores that strategically place product in an easily navigable way are helping their customers develop brand recognition and understand their needs. The mass amount of toy manufacturers and brand lines can make purchasing a headache for some people. Plan-O-Grammed displays group toys by company and product line, displaying cohesive packaging that will stick in consumer minds. When a boutique client requests a strap-on-compatible rubber dong, they can now easily be directed to the slat wall section that holds the entire line of Pipedream’s Basix Rubber Works. When retailers Plan-O-Gram, it’s a win-win for everyone in the chain of supply and demand.

After admiring the walls of my customer’s stores, I headed out to his suggested drive up to North Lake Tahoe. Fitting nature into my daily duties is a huge perk of traveling for a living. The incredible beauty of my surroundings leaves me refreshed when I have to get back on the clock. Taking a breather, regardless of how small, is the best way to stay sane while living out of hotel rooms. It’s easy to get so caught up in the industrial world of a career that one forgets the importance of little sips of leisure. If you can’t fit a long break into your work schedule, steal away into the woods in-between luncheons and meetings. Trust me, the effort you’ll be able to show those future Plan-O-Grams might just depend on it.

Check out the photos from my mid-trip excursion to Lake Tahoe:

AVN’s Intimate Magazine got up-close and personal with Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino to reflect on his massive success, from working his way up from unloading trucks to now overseeing a conglomeration of adult.

“Think back only four or five years ago at what adult novelty retail looked like,” said VP of sales Steve Sav. “Look at it now. He’s taken these mainstream ideas and developed them for the adult retail market…”
