THE SEX FILES: Interview with Susan Colvin, President and CEO of California Exotic Novelties about the Vivid Raw adult toy line

Susan ColvinAs they have now for quite some time with their Vivid Raw toy line, premier adult producer Vivid and California Exotic Novelties-a toy industry leader-have been working hard to bring consumers the Vivid Raw line, a collection of ‘strokers,’ body-part molds and other goodies just perfect for couple and solo fun. Made from their Pure Silk® material, these adult products are truly unique in their construction. Having just released their Super Model doll and consistently stretching innovations with all their products I just knew a conversation with California Exotic’s Susan Colvin would prove fun indeed.

Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how a ‘nice girl like you got to be in a business like this?’

I started California Exotic Novelties 20 years ago on the principal that pleasure products could be made better. Better motors, better features and better packaging—that was the inspiration for the company, and it is still what we pride ourselves on today. Building California Exotic Novelties into the company it is today has been a rewarding experience and I wouldn’t trade it for any other.

Can you explain how the Pure Skin® material-much heralded in your press material-differs from material other adult toys are made of?

Pure Skin is incredibly durable and unlike other lifelike materials, is virtually maintenance-free. It resists rips and tears better than others, while remaining subtle and lifelike. That’s why California Exotic Novelties proudly offers a one-year warranty on all Vivid Raw products. This kind of warranty is unprecedented in the world of lifelike men’s toys, and shows how confident we are in guaranteeing men’s satisfaction.

Trust me, you’ll understand how amazing Pure Skin is when you feel the difference. It perfectly mimics the texture and anatomy of a real woman inside and out. The interior love tunnels are especially authentic, and there are even some with a G-spot! Talk about a lifelike experience!

Do you find there is one product that sells hands down over any of the others? Body part molds men gravitate towards more then others?

Strokers are the best sellers, particularly lifelike vaginas with attributes like the G-spot. These toys replicate a very authentic experience.

The large lifelike asses, like the Assterbator, the Teen Assterbator, the Bootylicious, and the Baby Got Back, are proving to be huge hits too. These types of lifelike toys are always very popular. We’re seeing a great response for the Life Size Body Banger as well. Not to mention the dolls! The D.P Goddess Love Doll, the Doggy Style Diva Love Doll and the Spread Eagle Starlet are all super-popular—and the party dolls in the collection are just plain fun!

Speaking of dolls, let’s talk about your new Super Model dol1.

The pinnacle product in the Vivid Raw Collection is the Super Model. Everyone wants to sleep with a super model, and now they can. This revolutionary doll is molded after Alanah Rae and 100% lifelike. She has inner inflation that uses the revolutionary Air Vivid inner structure, which increases or decreases air to customize her firmness. It puts the user in control. Decide how firm or soft she is when you first inflate her – pump included.

The Air Vivid construction also enhances the intimate touch skin feature. This means she feels amazingly lifelike. Men love her gorgeous facial features with expertly crafted makeup. She has deep hazel eyes and flowing blond hair. Her lips are kissable and very inviting.

Men can position their Super Model any way they want. Her fully rotational arms and legs turn 360°. Her breasts are perky with erect nipples. Plus her hands and feet are lifelike and painted with matching pink nail polish—so pretty! Her dual-entry love tunnel is ultra-deep and feels just like a real woman. Guys can add the included stimulator for extra vibrations.

I know of plenty of companies that have tried net-based remote controlled gadgets and have seen plenty of high tech toys flare quickly in the marketplace then die out. Can we go too far with technology and sex and turn people off?

Over the years I’ve seen so many internet-based gadgets come and go. What it boils down to, quite frankly, is simplicity and ease of use. “Net-hook ups and apparatuses” don’t sound very sexy or easy to use. A simple Vivid Raw handheld stroker is a great porn pal, gets the job done, and feels amazingly realistic. Some things don’t need to be any more complicated than that.

Can you give us a hint of what might be coming from Vivid and Cal Exotics in the future?

California Exotic Novelties and Vivid enjoy collaborating very much. We’ve already discussed new products and collections for the future. Everything is very hush-hush right now, but we’ll let you know when we’re ready with the next big thing from California Exotic Novelties and Vivid!
