Your shopping experience is not only fun, but safe and discreet too. Recently, I had the opportunity to catch up with Drew Jackson, the co-owner of this world-renowned adult store. Here is what he had to say...

(Q) What is the inspiration behind the brand? What inspired you to create My Bedroom Spice?

D.J: If you look around the industry, it won’t take you very long to realize there is a large disparity in the quality of information presented by the endless number of adult toy stores online. It’s true that many retailers carry the same brands and products, to varying degrees, but very few companies are giving the customers quality information they want in order to buy those products (for example, listing product features and benefits, product specifications, details on how the product can be used, even product videos so you can see exactly what the product looks like and how it functions)
This is what inspired My Bedroom Spice. Being in the industry for over 3 years, we’ve realized how much more we could do for our customers, in the products we offer them, but more importantly in the information we provide. Building amazing educational resources, buyer guides, tutorials, product videos, review videos, industry expert interviews etc. in order to provide our customers the knowledge they need when buying adult toys, in an extremely trust worthy and comfortable environment.

(Q) Is it true My Bedroom Spice is a re-branded site?

D.J: Yes, My Bedroom Spice is our second adult store. I guess we just love the industry that much.

(Q) How will My Bedroom Spice be different from your previous storefront?

DJ: My Bedroom Spice is relentlessly focused on the customer experience. Educating the customer and creating a comfortable, non-intimidating environment that’s easy to shop in even if you’re a complete newbie when it comes to adult toys. Our main focus is creating amazing content and resources that customers can refer to when they are going through the buying process to help clear any confusion or questions they may have (and learn something in the process). This includes things like buyer guides in every category, product comparison videos, videos on every product page explaining our products, and videos on every category page to explain the types of products in the category and so much more.

Plus, we’ve recently launched a podcast to interview industry experts and get their insights and opinions to even further educate ourselves and our customer base. Essentially we’ve taken all the knowledge and experience we’ve gained from running our previous store for 2 years and put it into My Bedroom Spice – and we are so excited to see what it will become.

(Q) You sell everything from classic adult toys (everything from vibrators, dildos and more) to sensual lingerie and more. Currently, what are your best-selling, most popular products?

D.J: That’s an easy one. On a sheer volume basis, our vibrators are by far the most popular products on our website. More specifically: G-spot vibrators, clitoral vibrators, dual action vibrators and luxury vibrators. They have always been the highest traffic sections of our website, and for good reason. The majority of our customers are female and the best products for women are generally vibrators. There’s a lot of reasons for this; there’s the quality perspective, vibrators are perfect for any experience level, and vibrators are less taboo than other more niche categories (although this is changing too).

Some of our best-selling products include: Solid Steel Jeweled Butt Plug, the Butterfly Kiss G-Spot and Clitoral Vibrator, Wild G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator with Clitoral Stimulator, the Original Sex and the City Rabbit Habit Vibrator, LELO Liv 2 Luxury Rechargeable G-Spot Vibrator, the Original Hitachi Magic Wand, Rocks Off Ammunition RO-80mm Bullet Vibrator, LELO Mia 2 USB Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator, LELO Ina 2 Luxury Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator, and Vibratex Mystic Wand Vibrating Waterproof Massager. As you can see it’s largely dominated by vibrators!

(Q) Is there a golden rule when choosing the right adult toy?

D.J: It’s no surprise that these toys will be coming in to contact with some pretty sensitive parts of your body. It’s so important to know and understand the materials of the toys you’re considering purchasing, to ensure they won’t irritate your skin or body. This is why we offer an in-depth breakdown of the materials on every single product page, so you know exactly what you’re getting before you purchase. Other than that, it’s all personal preference! And we truly do sell something for every preference.

(Q) What did you think of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey?

D.J: I think it's great what 50 Shades did for the industry - bringing it more mainstream and less taboo in the eyes of the general public and that's good for all of us! Sales definitely increased since the movie came out. The more movies they release the better it will be for the industry as a whole.

A funny side note, last year, we moved into a beautiful loft in downtown Vancouver for a few months while we were getting settled, and we had a few friends over who said they felt like they've seen it before. It turns out the loft right above ours (same lay out, etc) was actually in the movie - it was the red room. We thought that was fitting!

(Q) What is your opinion of Kim Basinger playing Elena Lincoln aka Mrs. Robinson in the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker?

D.J: I love Kim Basinger. She has been in a lot of great films.

(Q) How can My Bedroom Spice up your love life?

D.J: Carrying over 3,000 products and counting, we truly do have something for everyone. Whether you’re a beginner or a 5-year veteran, you’ll find something on our store to satisfy your sexual appetite.

(Q) For all of those adult toy enthusiasts along with entertainment lovers reading this interview, what would you like them to know? What is next for My Bedroom Spice?

D.J: The next few years will be very important for My Bedroom Spice, as we continue to innovate and move into new areas of the business we have yet to explore. We’ll be expanding our lingerie line, focusing on bringing in bigger brands that our customer know and love, as well as launching our My Bedroom Spice private label line, starting with high quality, organic lubricants and moving into luxury vibrators and beyond.
