Sex Toy Story: Jimmyjane’s Ethan Imboden Wants to Make Vibrators as Common as iPhones

[Courtesy Of allthingsd.com] HELLOTOUCH_02[1] Before he designed vibrators, Jimmyjane founder and chairman Ethan Imboden spent more than a decade designing cellphones, footwear and furniture for the likes of Motorola, Herman Miller and Nike. So, when he finally turned his attention to luxury sex toys, he had considerable consumer electronics acumen to apply to them. And that has served him well in his quest to turn a once-taboo device into a lifestyle accessory as commonplace as an electric toothbrush. Imboden has been called the Steve Jobs of sex toys (though perhaps “the Jony Ive of sex toys” is more appropriate), and while that’s a characterization he said he’s not entirely comfortable with, it’s easy to understand. With Jimmyjane, Imboden has reimagined a massive industry, bringing holistic, intuitive design and taste to a pleasure goods market sorely lacking in it. Which is not to say that the company’s Millennium Falcon-esque Form 2 or its latest offering, the wearable Hello Touch, are the iPhones of sex toys; just that the focus on design and consumer experience that went into their design, their almost visually asexual aesthetic, disrupted a complacent sex-toy industry in the same way that the iPhone upended the smartphone market.

nomoreboringsex_adultoyparties Time heals all wounds, they say, whomever they might be. Time, unfortunately, can also make monogamy monogamous, tedious, boring, you get the point. Most every couples reaches that point where the daily grind becomes a continuous Déjà vu, hum drum, predictable, kiss kiss – hug hug- have a good day.

How To Spice Up Your Sex Life. Try an adult toy party.Sex. The word itself used to make people uncomfortable. But now, more than ever, couples are branching out in their sexual behaviors, and discovering what gets them going. From incorporating sex toys in the bedroom to paging through 50 Shades of Grey to attending their first adult toy party, couples are mixing it up and increasing their pleasure in the process. It used to be that a woman needed a trench coat, dark sunglasses and a nondescript hat to cover up her curiosity while scanning the shelves at a sex shop. Now, it only takes a walk through the local drug-store to find name-brand vibrators in the aisle next to the condoms. The next time you’re feeling inspired to try something new with your partner, incorporate one of these five bold moves into the bedroom:  
  1. Introduce a vibrator. What used to be for her pleasure only is now being brought into the bedroom for couples. Men, don’t feel emasculated by this handy helper. Rather, use it as a tool to complement your own.
