Chelsea Does…Pipedream!

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—February 3, 2016—After recent features on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Conan, Pipedream continues their wave of mainstream media penetration on the Netflix series premiere, Chelsea Does.

The episodes follow comedian Chelsea Handler as she explores different subjects. Episode 1 is focused on marriage and centers around Chelsea and her friends enjoying sex toy talk and a bachelorette party. Items from Pipedream’s best selling Fetish Fantasy Series and Bachelorette Party Favors collections are prominently featured, discussed and played with — including Midget Man.

“We are always excited to see such incredible mainstream interest in Pipedream’s versatile products,” said Pipedream’s Digital Marketing Director Brian Sofer. “These appearances are good reminders for Pipedream customers to always have plenty of our products in stock — Pipedream brands are everywhere and have tremendous mainstream appeal for consumers.”

Conan Follows Up on Pipedream Tour with Will Forte!

Forte on Conan

After a recent shout-out by Kristen Schaal on Conan last month, the late night talk show host followed up with Schaal’s Last Man On Earth co-star, Will Forte, on last night’s episode. The comedians discussed the entire crew’s exclusive Pipedream headquarters tour, from the halls of the office to the hand-painted King Cocks in the manufacturing facility.

“We got a call from Pipedream,” explained Forte. “It’s right next door. It’s a multi– it’s like, several buildings. A dildo compound… We go over there and it is just– I just feel like dildos just exist. You don’t realize–,”

Screen_Shot_2015-12-04_at_7.51.39_AMConan interrupts, “They have to be manufactured by someone!”

Forte continues, “I never thought about that. You go in there and every detail –there’s a person who pours the latex into the mold. And then they dump it into this big thing, there’s a person who’s in charge of cooling it down, and then there’s these very nice group of ladies who paint veins.”

“You mean it’s that much attention —  it’s handcrafted, is what you’re saying,” asks Conan. “And you know what I like? That it’s made in America!”

“It’s impressive,” said Forte. “It’s a real business.”

See the entire five minute interview on Pipedream’s official Vimeo.

“We are very excited to see such incredible mainstream interest in Pipedream’s products and facilities,” said Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “We want to thank Conan and his crew for their continued coverage, and our Last Man On Earth neighbors for continually sharing their positive impressions of our global enterprise.”

Orlandino has extended a personal invitation to Conan to tour the Pipedream facilities, plus a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to come and see how a dildo is created from A to Z; from concept, to production, to packaging.

Sex Education Sells! Sabrina Dropkick Talks Sexpert Life with XBIZ Magazine

sex-ed-sells

#babealert

XBIZ did a freakin’ incredible special report on sex education this month, with articles covering the rising demand for sexual health information and the array of educational resources that are now available. There’s one article in particular that focuses on sex education that’s offered in the sex toy manufacturing industry, so of course my girl Ariana, XBIZ pleasure products editor, just had to ask for my input. ;)

For manufacturers of pleasure products, sex education is vital to business. Several companies have taken it upon themselves to guide consumers through sexual exploration by not just providing a wide range of tools but also the know-how to use them. 

Manufacturers such as CalExotics, Pipedream, Doc Johnson, and Topco have sexperts on staff to directly provide advice and information to consumers and retailers. 

“I primarily talk to customers through email and social media,” said Sabrina Dropkick, Pipedream’s sexpert and social media manager. “The variety of questions is pretty vast, though the most common are probably toy suggestions, penis enhancement, and first-time anal advice. My favorite inquiries come from people who want to better satisfy their partner or want to introduce something new to their routine — I just love introducing people to the infinite realm of pleasure that sex toys can provide.” 

pegging-manifesto

My “Pegging Manifesto” is probs my fave Pipedream blog that I’ve written. YOU GUISE, I JUST REALLY LOVE BUTT FUCKING BOYS, OKAY?!?!?!?

According to Dropkick, offering sex advice and handling Pipedream’s social media go hand in hand. 

“Since a majority of my work is done online, it offers people the safety of anonymity and relieves the anxiety typically induced by face-to-face conversation,” she said. “I also do a lot of blogging and we’re about to launch a new video series, and I think having these types of educational resources readily available is extremely valuable — it’s anticipating people’s needs and answering their questions before they even have to work up the courage to ask.”

Dropkick notes that the need for sex-ed is becoming more evident as it increasingly garners more attention from the media. 

“John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ recently did a phenomenal story on the crisis of sex education in America (only 13 states require that sex education be scientifically accurate — um, what?!) Celebrities are publicly coming out of various closets, sparking plenty of much-needed conversation about gender and sexuality,” Dropkick said.

 ”And with the array of communities who gather online to share their experiences and network, there’s a place on the Internet for anyone to find the resources and relatability they need to feel more comfortable with and explore their particular sexuality. That’s what I think it’s really about — it’s less about making sex education ‘popular’ and more about relieving the taboo and shame associated with sex. Once we can achieve this, then sex education will become a routine occurrence. The more we talk about it, the more ‘normalized’ it becomes, and sharing our personal stories is especially effective because it brings a tangible life to the issues at hand.” 

So all of the gold stars to Ariana for writing a kick ass piece about some super important stuff, and for also having really, really, ridiculously good taste in quotes. ;) Check out the entire November XBIZ and the article below (you can catch magnified images here and here.) There a tons of other sweet ass Pipedream coverage from the issue as well, so why don’tcha just put down the gotdamn porno for once and beat your mental meat for a minute, eh?
