Women's Day 2022 Power Play Pleasure Essentials Boxed Set
Supporting women-led businesses and entrepreneurs has always been a priority for the Pleasure Parlor, because we are a woman-owned and operated business, and that sh*t is HARD. After being in the business of pleasure for nearly 17 years, we have seen everything evolve - from 80s packaging design to more sophisticated product designs and engineering processes. We still have a long way to go, but these brands are accelerating the game, and they are also a pleasure to work with, as well.
In celebration of Women's Day 2022, we are launching this first-of-its-kind curated gift set featuring sexual wellness companies and pleasure advocates who are either woman-owned, woman-founded, and/or women-led. Each of these people inspire me (Casey) for different reasons; they are activists for pleasure in their own right, and they are re-defining the landscape of this industry, and the womxn's wellness market as a whole.
This curation was not simple - we selected each of these items based on the following factors:
- Body-safe, vegan, cruelty-free
- Suitable for any gender; all experience levels
- Brands already included in recurring subscription boxes (some)
- Items not exclusive to sex; promote pleasure outside of the bedroom
- Brands who walk the walk - they put their values into action - not just talking the talk
- Total price under $100
- Their products do what they *say* they will do (what a concept! ...You'd be surprised.)
- Owner/Founder/Company is not total bullshit (I won't name names here but God do I want to.)
We understand that our community shops with us because we offer a level of curation that gos beyond the buzzword. Every product on this website - and in our quarterly sex toy subscription boxes - have been chosen by hand, all body-safe, selected to create an experience for versatile preferences and experience levels! And this Power Play gift set is no exception!
