{Giveaway} Je Joue MiMi Vibrator From My Secret Luxury

After “taking a lap” through a sex shop in New York City’s West Village, Stacy Rybchin saw a business opportunity—selling sex toys online in a tasteful, upscale fashion. “Where could someone like me buy sex toys without all the nudity and embarrassment?” thought this full-time mother of two boys from Westchester, NY. A few years into her business, Stacy is excited to share her brand, My Secret Luxury, with FOF. Read our interview with Stacy about high quality luxury sex toys and enter for a chance to win the Je Joue MiMi Vibrator!

To enter to win the Je Joue MiMi Vibrator, comment below by answering the question: Have you ever tried a cheap sex toy?

Why did you decide to launch My Secret Luxury, and what’s the mission of the company?

After my experience in the West Village, I thought I should curate sex toys and present them in a sophisticated, boutique-like experience without any nudity or pornography. That became our mission, to provide safe, high quality toys that are for your sexual pleasure and give you a high-end shopping experience. We like to consider ourselves the Rodeo Drive for sex toys!

What makes something a luxury sex toy, versus a ‘normal’ one?

High quality luxury sex toys are sleek and modern—not with a ton of bells and whistles on the side. These toys are well-made, with quality engineering and the best materials on the market, such as medical-grade silicone, medical-grade stainless steel, and Pyrex glass. The technology is better on these products as well, from the innovation to the rechargeability and remote controls. You’re not going to get that on your plain old bullet vibrator. A lot of these high-end toys are waterproof, which is beneficial because many women like to use them in the bath or in the shower. Because the toys are made with more precision and care, they have better motors, so they’re quieter and the motors last longer—most cheap sex toys break after only a few uses!

What is the price range of your products?

We have something for every budget! The average cost of a high quality vibrator or sex toy is around $100 to $150. The most expensive item is the $15,000 gold plated vibrator, and the most inexpensive toy would probably be around $60.

What are your bestsellers?

One bestseller is the Jimmyjane Hello Touch, which is a great introduction into luxury toys because it’s only $65. It doesn’t even look like a toy and is fun for women and men—everyone gets a kick out of it. The pulsators are more advanced—they don’t vibrate, but mimic the movement of penetration quite well. The technology is fascinating, even in this segment—manufacturers are always coming up with great things. Overall, clitorial vibrators sell the best.

From L to R: Jimmyjane HELLO TOUCH Vibrator, and Drei, Einz, and Zwei Pulsators by Fun Factory.

Tell us about the MiMi vibrator. Why is it a good starter toy?

It’s a great beginner toy because it’s small, discreet, and super easy to use. It’s made out of 100% medical-grade silicone, so it feels soft and luxurious. It’s a clitoral vibrator, for external use only. It’s rechargeable, waterproof, and it fits in the palm of your hand—a great starter toy.

What are some good luxury toys to try after a starter toy?

I would recommend going for a rabbit style or dual stimulation toy that stimulates both the clitoris and the G-spot.

Why are vibrators important?

Pleasure is important. 7 out of 10 women orgasm through clitoral stimulation… So if you’re one of the other 3, you’re lucky—most of us are not. Women’s pleasure cannot be forgotten. Most women need a little more than their hands—there is nothing wrong or shameful about it. Vibrators are great to use with a partner. The high quality toys are taking the shame and cheesiness out of the experience of pleasure, because they don’t look like the average sex toy.

Where can FOFs buy your products?

The products are all available online.

  • susan

    Nope. Willing to try yours.

  • Sharyn Yenzer

    My cheap one died and would love to try a new one.

  • Leslie Graham

    I have always wanted to try but never have ;( I’ve been in the stores but have always been too embarrassed to purchase . I would love to win this ;)

  • Kristine P

    Tried cheap ones and they don’t work well

  • Craig W

    I have tried all different “toys”.

  • Mack

    One of the first toys I bought was a big jelly double-ended dildo. It was purple. Over the years, it’s turned clear. If all the color has come out, what has it absorbed? I don’t use it any more but I keep it around as a talking point when friends don’t believe me about the importance of material safety for sex toys.

  • LesserUnknown

    Before silicone and metal caught on at the local sex shop, I bought a Mystery Material toy or two, yuk. Never going back, and spreading the word to anyone open-minded enough to talk about sex stuff with me.

  • Sand

    Yes, I have in the past.

  • BlackAsphodel

    No, so far I’ve only tried a curved glass dildo composed out of balls that increase in diameter from one end to the other and I have no complaints about it.

    My e-mail: blackasphodel(at)yahoo(dot)com

  • Nan

    Toys are so much fun. Pick me….pick me, please!

  • Carolyn Humphrey

    No. Don’t own any yet.

  • Heaven

    I think we all have tried a cheap sex toy at least once in our life. I will never try them again I will tell you that.

  • Lisa Stephenson

    On the cheap vibrators the battery mode is not strong enough. Lots of wiring problems.

  • http://smutkitten.tumblr.com Rosie Glow

    My first couple of toys were cheap. I thought they were okay at the time, but as soon as I got my first luxury toy, they went in the bin!

  • CJ Augustus

    Sadly, I have. Recently, I’ve been thinking about getting a new toy~there r some interesting changes in them since the last on I got.

  • JMeidel

    I would LOVE to try this little toy. I don’t have any real toys. My sister says they are the way to go. I’ve tried Oils & edible panties. A little messy.

  • travelgirl

    Yes, I have trried cheap toys, and more expensive ones. Some work better than others :)

  • http://twbdesign.com Teri Brajewski

    I got my first vibrator after ending a long marriage – I actually bought it through FOF and I have to say I was beating myself up wondering why I never gave myself this pleasure before – every pun intended. The one I have is inexpensive and it’s made me happy but the batteries don’t last and I am sure the quality of the one in this offer would go a long way – on all levels. Love the rechargable idea – fun and environmental as well – would be so excited to try something new

  • Catherine

    Never used it. Was afraid I would not long for a man if I enjoyed it too much.

  • Allison S.

    The only ones I’ve ever tried were cheap ones :(

    I need an upgrade!

  • CHERYL

    YES, I have tried a few, really liked the rabbit but like you said very noisy! Would love to win this!

  • Corinne Davies

    Yes, but it was so NOISY!

  • Dedbra Peters

    I’ts been years since I used vibrators and yes they were all cheap back then. Ive recently beeen thinking about trying them again but OMG when did they get sooo expensive?
    I guess its “you get what you pay for”

  • http://www.propertyofpotter.com PropertyOfPotter

    The first few vibrators I tried were super cheap and didn’t work for me at all. I thought I didn’t respond to vibrations so I didn’t bother trying anything new. Four years later my husband and I decided to try out some toys together and actually purchased a few things worth having. I realized I needed power and the cheap buzzy vibrators were the issue, not me. Since then, I’ve stuck with better quality toys and have figured out what works for me and what doesn’t.

    • Bernie W

      No I have not.

  • Donna Sherritt

    Yes, when it came in the mail, I opened it up, took one look, and tossed it!

  • Lauren

    Yes, unfortunately…we’re working on improving our toybox

  • susan Householder

    When you do get into your 50’s and play like your 35.. Then I think this toy is for me. I liked my old vibrator until , well! let’s just say it is on the way out.I find anything like this a great chance to turn on the heat in any ones bedroom. I am up for a trial try with this new toy. Everything in life changes as you get younger, why not take the approach to keep the sex drive alive.

  • Wendy Plumley

    I have not ever bought a sex toy!

  • Beverly Hughett

    I have used other sex toys..with and without a mate. They add more to the sexual play…and sometimes to finsh the job a man sometimes can’t.. because of his lack of staying power or med’s I have had to take

  • Shirl Walker

    I have a friend who was going through a box left behind in one of her rental properties and came across a “modified” electric toothbrush. *Shudder*
    Personally, I’ve found the “pulsate” setting on the hand-held shower head to be quite practical. (leaves you feeling both clean and a little dirty at the same time ;))

  • http://att.net Linnette

    No but Im kinda interiged about this one.Im single with nothing in sight.But this is better then a booty call.No disease either.

  • Lechant

    Yes, it was given to me as a Christmas gift at work. Imagine having your first toy to be not only cheap but unappetizing. I threw it out. I remained curious though and bought myself a small bullet

  • mingy

    never dared try

  • Wendy

    Yes, I have. Threw it away.

  • Marcie Jones

    Never again! Your ultimate personal pleasure is WAY worth the cost of the BEST!

  • Martha stephens

    Yes, I have never been unable to afford the expensive ones but would just love to try this one out! What a great prize!

  • Keri

    I am still trying to figure out if I have any kind of sexual desire left in me! I have had toys from pleasure parties before. (A few glasses of wine and all the girls start filing in single order to purchase the new toys) the issue with many is that they are too obvious. There is no wonder what they are for, so they get,” hidden” somewhere very well. So well, it is almost too much effort to hunt them out! The little discreet one, if it has a strong motor could blend in nicely with my electronic gadgets…it looks almost like a pager or walking calculator. Much nicer!

  • Mar g

    Yeppers. Didn’t always work.

  • http://faboverfifty.com LC

    No, but I’m fiftyish & think it’s about time I did!

  • Karra

    Would be ecstatic to try a good one.

  • Karrie Millheim

    yes I have! I would recommend not using cheap products! I tried a cheap one, one time and it caught my pubes on fire

  • Karrie Millheim

    Yes I have :P

  • Sue Lewis

    I got my first vibrator as a gag Secret Santa gift from a co-worker friend. It was glow in the dark, the cheap wand kind you get from Spencer’s. At least I didn’t have to go buy one myself! I think the vibrations were a little too strong, those cheap wand vibes feel really mechanical.

  • Patrice Roussell

    I have only purchased a cheap vibrator. From one of those household magazines. This machine looks good. Hope I win and get a chance to try.

  • Debora

    I’ve been wanting to get a toy, but haven’t taken the steps to purchase.

  • susan

    Yes I have tried a cheap sex toy.It does the trick if it doesn’t shut off or batteries run low using it. The product is made of hard plastic. Doesn’t feel real to the touch. I would love to try this one. It sounds interesting.love to give this mimi a run for the money. I probably would love to wear this one out.At my age 58, it is all about clean fun!

  • PJ

    I don’t like the porno packages on most sex toys.

  • jennifer

    Never tried any toy… but would love to give it a whirl, after 20 years, we could try something new!

  • Donna

    Yes, it was one of my favorites until it broke ;(

  • Fodra

    Yes, the hard plastic kind. Those tend to be pretty loud. They’re not always comfortable to hold either.

  • http://noveltiestoymeetsgirl.com dizzygirl

    I have tried inexpensive sex toys but I refuse to use the cheapest stuff that’s not made of body safe materials.

  • Karen Mumpower

    Yes

  • http://beebakerrn@comcast.net Beth B

    Oh yeah…time for an upgrade!

  • Gail

    No, cause I’m not cheap!

  • Tricia

    Yes! unfortunately I burned the battery out and can’t afford to replace it as I’m just getting back to work after being unemployed.

  • A. Reese

    Yes. My ex-fiance bought me a giant assortment with different devices and oils for Christmas. Odd gift – I’d rather have jewelry but it was better than a mop. At least it was fun.

  • http://google ron frampton

    yes

  • http://Christina.janoski@yahoo.com Fabulous33

    Yes I have and nothing is worse than being right there and the batteries start to die or the cord get a kink and you end up getting a short in the vibrator (speed slow down or all of a sudden it speeds up) frustration is the only word I can think of.

  • Laura Borud

    I’ve been too chicken to buy any but I sure want to.

  • Kathy Watson

    No have never tried a sex toy not because I’m not adventuresome. I had wondered where you purchase and whether instructions came with. Someone once told me they had used an electric toothbrush for vibration and I just couldn’t quite get that mental image out of my mind for a while. I am in my later 50s and the sex life could use resurrection, I would enjoy giving a new toy a try for a thrill. I read sex is suppose to keep you healthier…….is it something more emotional or is there really a connection between having orgasm and health?

  • Pamela Goldman

    I have, but you definitely get what you pay for.

  • Margaret

    Years ago. It was supposed to feel like the real thing, but it gave me a bright red rash.

  • http://spicyspinsters.webs.com Jewel

    Yes, and I’d love to learn what a luxury item can do.

  • Carol

    In the past hubby and I tried sex toys but I didn’t like the hard plastic or the type of vibration. Now I am widowed, and looking to start a new life. Until I get a new friend I would like to try a great little toy like this.

  • dorothy b

    been curious but timid

  • Joc

    I have never tried a cheap or expensive sex toy – probably about time to try one! :)

  • Robin

    Oh yes, after my divorce a friend told me to get myself a toy, I did and am not sorry I did. Would like a nice one since there still is no man in my life.

  • akiss50

    It would be nice to have something that is new ad improved, versus the cheap brand toys.

  • yummyfaerie

    No, I have never tried a cheap sex toy.

  • Laura

    Never have owned a sex toy but have been seriously considering but didn’t know how to obtain one.

  • smfsprout

    Of course I’ve tried a cheap sex toy, but apparently technology has moved way beyond that while I wasn’t paying attention.

  • http://faboverfifty.com S Kay DeGroot

    Not yet, but you’ve peaked my interest!

  • Di

    Husband had prostate cancer last year and had robotic prostate removal. He is cancer free but nothing works now. Even before the surgery, sex was all about him. Even though I am older, I still get the urge now and then. With something like this, I might more often. : )

  • Larisa Khodorkovskaya

    I would love to start my introduction to this kind of things with this one. I never used toys before…
