Our space within the BDSM community is a light one. We are taking the sometimes perceived as dark and seedy and turning a light onto it, a silver or gold light. We are taking the industrial and making it beautiful with carefully selected materials, partnering with fine jewelry makers and diligently striving to innovate the BDSM product industry. We work to change the standard and perception of kink and sexuality. We make luxury BDSM products. Nipple clamps are usually industrial and easy to spot out.

Business, entreprenuer, failure, success -

Failure is … a word that needs to be re-accepted. Failure needs to be embraced. I don't think failure should be strived for but I do believe that failure needs to be allowed as part of any process that is new. Failure = learning = growth. I remember a quote from a man I admire “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” to put it bluntly. In designing our products, I have learned to build “failure” into any project process I am starting and allow time for it.
