A Vibrator is Forever

Thursday, March 22, 2012 2:35:58 PM America/Los_Angeles

In our culture of planned obsolescence it’s rare to find products that are built to last a lifetime. Seasonal upgrades may have their place in fashion and technology, but when it comes to the products that engage our sexuality, there is no place for poorly made vibrators that break before you can say ohmygod.

That’s why more and more people choose to invest a bit more on a quality product today and save themselves the time and money it will cost tomorrow to replace it. But time and money are not the only resources saved – products that last also reduce material consumption, energy consumption and landfill. When Jimmyjane introduced our one year warranty back in 2005, we were the first in the industry to do so, and we've since inspired others to follow our lead. In 2009, we tripled our commitment to quality and enduring pleasure – but our Three Year Limited Warranty is just the beginning. Can a vibrator truly last forever? If the material is wear-proof and the motor is replaceable it can come pretty close. LITTLE SOMETHING and LITTLE CHROMA and made with medical-grade anodized aluminum and precious metals. And with their patented Replaceable Motors, these vibrators might last a lifetime, or more. How lucky your grandchildren will be when they find out what they’ve been bequeathed.

The Wow Factor (Part 2)

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 5:24:23 PM America/Los_Angeles

As we discussed a couple weeks ago, the landscape of vibrator design is constantly changing and improving, like a caterpillar turning to a beautiful, electronic, pleasure-inducing butterfly.

So what does that mean for you, the savvy customer? It means that while it’s easier to find high-quality, well-designed vibrators, it’s harder to decide which one is best for you. Here are three places to start your quest for the perfect sex accessory – power, durability and “wow.” Power – For many, more power means more pleasure. The intensity of a vibrator depends on the type, quality and quantity of motors, and the power source that drives them. Look for a vibrator with a digitally controlled precision motor (or two) to get the strongest vibrations with the lowest sound levels and longest battery life. Durability – A vibrator should last several years, never just a few months. Look for companies that stand by their products with multi-year warranties and convenient, responsive customer service. Choose products made of body-safe, medical-grade materials that won’t deteriorate or break. Wow – The most important factor (and the hardest to define) is “Wow.” Wow is the end result – an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. As vibrator designers, we know it’s what’s inside that counts – the materials, technologies and engineering that go into creating an exceptional product. As a customer, you know all that matters in the end is how your chosen companion feels to you and that it’s safe for your body and the planet. Wow encompasses all of that. Now go wow yourself.

Mirror, Mirror

Tuesday, March 13, 2012 1:13:12 PM America/Los_Angeles

While the close proximity and tangled limbs of most sexual positions can yield amazing sensations, they can seriously limit your view.

Not to worry – that’s where mirrors come in. A strategically placed reflection allows you and your partner to play exhibitionist and voyeur simultaneously. From the flirty oval of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, to the ceiling mounted Basic Instinct approach, mirrors are an easy way to capture the action in real time. Catch subtle expressions or the curve of a spine. The motion of muscles can add an entirely new dimension to the experience. The view of your own body responding has the potential to be equally exciting. Not sure how to start? Try inviting your partner to watch while you take your clothes off in front of a mirror. Dim the lights or use candles for a flattering glow. Or, if you’re feeling confident, keep the lights bright and revel in full exposure. Take turns facing the mirror so each partner can play both the observer and the observed. See where your strip tease takes you. If you start to feel shy, you can always close your eyes. What kind of mirror should you buy? That depends on what angles and views best suit your purposes. A set of simple IKEA mirrors offers multiple (and affordable) perspectives. When shopping for larger mirrors, consider your bedroom’s aesthetic and whether you want your sexual intent to be obvious or obfuscated. If you’re interested in full-body views, but don’t want to live in a hall of mirrors, consider a design that folds shut behind a set of doors. For some (particularly those new to sexual narcissism) it’s preferable to leave a bit to the imagination. If you fit this description, a small compact mirror is great for random peeks and close-ups. If you’d like the full view offered by a large mirror, but would prefer it in soft-focus, try applying a matte film or a “frost” spray to the surface. If you have too much money stuffed into your mattress and would like a more technologically advanced abstraction of your activities, consider having Daniel Rozin install a kinetic wooden mirror in your home. The most dramatic option is, of course, the overhead mirror. While it may not be the most subtle or sophisticated of decorating touches, it’s undeniably functional. If you go this route, be sure to mount the mirror very securely and to use a non-glass mirror in a lighter frame. (You want your view to be exciting, but not dangerous.) If you’re not looking to have the Honeymoon Suite look every night, there are some detachable options so that you can save the birds-eye-view for special occasions. Whether you’re a mirror aficionado or new to the idea, we’re curious to hear your reflections. (Get it? “Reflections.” So clever!)

The Wow Factor (Part 1)

Thursday, March 8, 2012 2:34:41 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

When we launched our first vibrators in 2004, a well-designed, well-made vibrator was pretty much unheard of. Instead, the majority of products were cheaply made, frightening to look at, and likely to die after only a few months – or hours – of use. They often promised more than they could deliver, and instead delivered much that was undesirable – noisy operation, toxic materials and the unnerving disclaimer that they were “for novelty use only.”

As you’ve likely noticed, the market has changed dramatically in the intervening years. The good news is that many vibrators have become more powerful, more durable, and more effective. They’ve evolved from battery-devouring appliances into innovative, efficient companions that are easier on our planet and your wallet. They’re made with safe, hygienic materials, appropriate for intimate contact with your body. Along the way, the appearance of vibrators has also evolved, moving away from the resemblance of severed anatomy, toward the more simplified, abstracted language of “design objects.” The not-so-great news is that choosing a vibrator by appearance may get you only that – the appearance of innovation and quality. Just because a vibrator has had an aesthetic update to fit in with a new generation of quality products, doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s well made or effective. The single most important outcome of the shift in the vibrator market is the shift in the conversation around it. With increasing mainstream awareness and acceptance, shoppers finally have access to better information and are able to make smarter buying decisions. The press and the public alike are starting to look deeper to discover what’s beneath the surface. They’re learning that when it comes to pleasure, it’s what’s inside that counts. To be continued next week...

American Women Top Charts in Vibrator Ownership and Universal Hotness

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 3:57:25 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

According to recent data from Newsweek, American women lead the world in vibrator ownership, second only to their savvy Taiwanese compatriots.

Also worth noting – Taiwanese women have the highest math scores of any nation, and the USA has the most Miss Universe wins.

Our deduction – using a vibrator makes you smarter and more attractive. Or perhaps it’s just that smart, good-looking people buy the most vibrators. You decide.

A Manhattan Love Story

Thursday, March 1, 2012 9:44:26 AM America/Los_Angeles

Shopping in Manhattan just got more creative thanks to our friend Rachel Shechtman’s new retail concept – STORY. This 2,000 square foot gallery-like space opened its doors in February with the theme of love, merchandising Jimmyjane products beside brands ranging from Vosges Chocolates to Tom’s Shoes.

Shechtman’s vision is to integrate brand narratives in a meaningful way, and she’s off to a great start. “Love Story” featured many of our favorite couples-oriented products including FORM Vibrators, AFTERGLOW Massage Oil Candles, and ESSENTIALS Pocket Pleasure Sets from Jimmyjane, alongside PACT underwear, Sir Richard’s Condoms, and more. Shechtman’s own brand identity is worth a closer look as well – she tapped design impresario Stefan Sagmeister to create the modular system that adapts to embrace each new theme. Keep an eye on this 10th Ave. retail experience, we’re confident it will continue to deliver on its promise of “changing like a gallery and selling like a store.”

On Your Knees, Ladies

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 11:24:11 AM America/Los_Angeles

 

It’s Leap Day – the day that arrives just once every four years. Societies have traditionally made special allowances on February 29th. Its relative infrequency gives us all a carte blanche to do things a little differently, mix it up, and enjoy the results.

One such tradition involves popping the proverbial question. Irish tradition dictates that Leap Day is the one day that women are allowed to propose marriage to men. According to legend, Saint Patrick and Saint Bridget made this feminist deal (long before feminism existed) in order to balance traditional gender roles in the same way that Leap Day balances the calendar. Additionally, the tradition dictates that if a man turns down a woman’s proposal on Leap Day, he is required to buy her a pair of gloves (some countries say 12 pairs). This is presumably to help her hide the shame of not wearing an engagement ring. Of course, we now live in a modern world in which it’s acceptable for women to propose to their beaus (or belles) any day of the year. But how many actually do? Not many. A measly 9% of proposals come from women, according to this article. At Jimmyjane, we’re all about women asking for (and getting) exactly what they want. So, if you’re a woman and there’s a special someone in your life, stop waiting for him to act. Today is your day. Get down on your knee and go for it. If you’re not ready to wear a ring just yet, you can always ask him to wear one of ours.

Bringing OC Housewives Together

Monday, February 27, 2012 9:40:32 AM America/Los_Angeles

 

Did you catch last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County?” If you did, you saw a brief but memorable cameo appearance by our very own FORM 3. It seems these Housewives just can’t stay away (the same team sampled Jimmyjane wares at Fred Segal just a couple seasons ago). A little plot background before you watch the clip to the left – Tamra and Gretchen, two of the “Housewives,” are trying to grow their friendship. And what better way to strengthen their BFF bond than shopping for sex accessories? Tamra seems uncharacteristically shy when she enters the sex shop, but CJ, her friend and the shop owner, quickly puts her at ease, sharing her array of products and their benefits. “I don’t have sex toys,” announces Tamra with… embarrassment? Pride? It’s hard to read expression through all the faux tan and bleach-blonde hair. CJ demonstrates FORM 3, flexing its amplifying touchpad with her finger and pointing out how it looks like a tongue. It gets the girls so excited, they drop it on the ground. Watch the clip from Bravo by clicking on the image.

Heads or Tails

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 5:57:40 PM America/Los_Angeles

 

Cash, credit, or… sex coin? A small bronze disc depicting a man and a woman having sex was found on the banks of the river Thames last month. This small, pornographic currency had been sitting in the mud near Putney Bridge in West London since the days of Roman Londonium, nearly 2000 years ago.

Back in those days, a visit to the whorehouse cost about a day’s pay, or 14 small Roman coins, called asses. Surprisingly, it was not the “ass” coins that got Roman laborers laid. Instead they would trade in their hard-earned asses for a brothel token, which could be redeemed for the act shown on the token at their favorite brothel. But these tokens led to more than some fun for a Roman laborer. According to the Guardian’s Art Blogger, Jonathan Jones, the explicit engravings had a serious influence on the birth of pornography as we know it today. Jones asserts that the ancient sexual depictions gave the inspiration and freedom to artists of the Renaissance to depict their own steamy scenes, such as Giulio Romano's series of pornographic illustrations – I Modi. These printed images, complete with pornographic poems, became a bestseller all over Europe during the 16th century, setting the style for erotic art. What do you think? Do you see the resemblance?
