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

Not only we were unexpectedly found in the Fifty Shades special edition issue of Newsweek this month – but our products were spotlit alongside testimonials from real women across America! The 99-page issue covers everything from the author of the book to sex toy suggestions – where Pipedream’s Icicles No. 12 and Jimmyjane’s Form 4 can be found!

“Toy Closet” highlights “what a woman really wants for the night of passion she deserves,” suggesting products along with quotes from real women across the country.

“I love how discreet this thing is,” said one woman on her Icicles No. 12. “I accidentally left it out when my parents were over, and they complimented my ‘beautiful sculpture.’”

Another woman shared love for her Form 4. “Since I bought this, I don’t mind so much when my man travels for business.”

“We’re so excited to find our toys in such a prominent mainstream publication,” said Pipedream PR Manager Sabrina Dropkick. “This just proves that Pipedream is the people’s first choice in high-quality, unique pleasure products, solidifying our position as the #1 adult novelty brand in the world.”

Pipedream, Jimmyjane and Williams Trading Co. Team Up for Biggest PDU Ever!

PR_wholesale_2010_2014-05-05_drfborbc

Pipedream and Jimmyjane have returned from the Williams Trading Co. 40th VIP Event in Baltimore, where the manufacturer presented an exclusive Pipedream University training seminar for VIP retailers. Attendees were wowed by both companies’ new releases, in-depth product demos and Planogram training. Over 150 VIP retailers attended the event and graduated with honors, making it the biggest graduating class in the history of PDU. Attendees were treated to the perfect blend of business and pleasure, with two days of training mixed in with three days of fun, food and festivities provided by Williams and Pipedream.

“We would like to extend our warmest thank you to the Pipedream team in supporting the Williams Trading Co. 40th VIP Event this past weekend,” said Williams Trading owner Bob Pyne, Jr. “The PDU seminar was incredible and it was the first time our customers got to interact directly with Pipedream and Jimmyjane’s sales and training staff, and we’re glad as always to have Nick and Pipedream as a Platinum Sponsor.”

Scott Dantis, Director Sales and Marketing for Williams Trading Co, added: “Working with Pipedream at the VIP Show, we were able to offer a comprehensive Pipedream University training program and strengthen our business relationships, while showcasing the exciting items from both Pipedream and Jimmyjane’s product lines. Williams Trading customers were able to get a sneak preview of Pipedream’s latest collections and receive hands-on education on both collections.”

Both brands conducted two days of brief 25-minute seminars and got a chance to connect directly with store-owners, managers and buyers in small groups. The opportunity for face-time with decision-makers at the retail level was imperative for Pipedream Vice President of Sales Steve Sav: “The VIP event was a wonderful, relaxed and business-focused forum to interact with Williams’ best customers, who were inquisitive and receptive to everything we offered. The three-day seminar was fun, informative and educational, and we can’t wait for the next one.”

PDU is an instructional seminar designed to give distributors and retailers the training and tools they need to effectively merchandise Pipedream’s award-winning brands. Graduates from the program left the ceremony with custom diplomas and Masters Degrees from Jimmyjane, along with PDU and Jimmyjane T-shirts, training materials, brand one-sheets, and gift bags filled with Pipedream and Jimmyjane promotional materials. More PDUs are planned for the future. Contact your Pipedream salesperson today for more information.

Diamond Products Completes Second Acquisition as Pipedream and Jimmyjane Join Forces

1654487_10152201524204788_644224849_nDiamond Products, in conjunction with a New York private equity firm, has made its second acquisition in the adult pleasure products industry in less than a year. Diamond approached Jimmyjane, the award-winning lifestyle brand known for reimagining the industry through design and innovation, to capitalize on the growing premium Sexual Wellbeing market. Together as part of Diamond, Jimmyjane and Pipedream Products aim to shape the future of the category as the world’s leading manufacturer of pleasure products.

With knowledge and experience gained over the last decade, Jimmyjane creates exceptional products that wow and delight its customers around the world. More than just a coveted brand, Jimmyjane embodies the team’s passion for pushing the limits of design, quality, and innovation. Award-winning designer Ethan Imboden founded the company in 2004 with the goal of bringing “Pleasure to the People” – and reshaping the sex products market along the way. He and his team leveraged unprecedented design, engineering and marketing to achieve their goal of making exceptional pleasure products broadly available – both in top “sex positive” retail environments, as well as through mainstream distribution. Today, Jimmyjane products are globally renowned for their exceptional performance, durability and design. The company is credited for its leading role in reorienting the global conversation around pleasure products, and has become known in the media as “the Apple of sex toys”.

Nick Orlandino, Chairman and CEO of Diamond Products commented “Jimmyjane is an exceptionally rare brand. Rare in the unique quality and design of its products, but also in the vision that has been executed over the last decade. I am very pleased that Ethan and the Jimmyjane team believe that our group is best able to ensure the continuity of this vision and the ongoing growth of the brand. Together we share the same values of quality and intense customer focus. I am convinced that our group will prove a good home and can help realize the significant future potential of Jimmyjane.”

Ethan Imboden, Founder and Chairman of Jimmyjane commented “We’re excited about this next step for Jimmyjane. Both our company and industry have come a very long way in the past 10 years. With the strength of Diamond behind Jimmyjane, we’ll be able to take our mission of bringing ‘Pleasure to the People’ to an entirely different scale. Nick and the Diamond team respect the customer- and design-centric values, approach and attention to detail that are the foundation of Jimmyjane, and will be great partners in growing the brand’s reach and amplifying its message.”

This acquisition is a key facet of Diamond Products’ long-term growth strategy and offers the group a leadership position in the premium pleasure products market with one of the world’s best known specialty brands. Jimmyjane will continue to operate separately, maintaining its product development, creative, online, and sales team at its corporate headquarters in San Francisco.
