Eldorado Launching Elevate U E-Learning Series

Distributor has partnered with The CSPH to offer an online sexual health certification series. 

Eldorado Trading Company, one of the largest distributors of adult pleasure products and lingerie, has partnered with Rhode Island-based sexuality training and education non-profit, The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (CSPH), to bring Eldorado customers Elevate U.

After hearing the different types of questions retailers were asking the attending sexual health educators at Eldorado’s in-house events, it became evident that there are issues that traditional product education does not address. The common theme is the lack of sexual health resources in communities and therefore an increasing number of customers turning to their local adult store to answer their questions. After considering these challenges retailers are facing and seeing what educational programs are currently available in the industry, Eldorado saw the opportunity for a comprehensive sexual health education program for its customers and after a year of content development, Elevate U was born.

Eldorado Logo_stacked_GoldBlackCYMK “Elevate U is intended to empower Eldorado’s retailers with accurate sexual health information so they can confidently and correctly answer sexual health related questions.” said Allison Travers, Eldorado Director of Marketing. “With this knowledge, retailers can offer customers an excellent in-store experience in order to create repeat business, become a trusted community resource and have a competitive advantage.” Travers continued, “We are dedicating Elevate U in memory of our founder and CEO, Larry Garland, to commemorate his longtime passion and commitment to sexual health and wellness education that was always at the forefront of his mission.”

Elevate U is a 16-lesson e-learning series that covers a variety of sexual health topics that goes beyond product focus designed to give stores and store clerks the tools and knowledge they need to become a community sexual resource.

Each video-based lesson is 20 – 30 minutes long and followed by a quiz. Once all 16 lessons and evaluations are passed, The CSPH will certify participants as a Community Sexual Health Resource.

Elevate U is available to active Eldorado customers as an added value to working with Eldorado and is launching with the first four lessons in the series at the beginning of 2017 with subsequent lessons to be released throughout the year.

“Since I can’t keep my ADHD out of my bedroom, I can at least share my experiences with the Twitter public and encourage others to join me in doing so,” says Liebling. “There is no replacement for the camaraderie and support one gains from sharing personal experiences, seeking advice, and having open conversations. I look forward to tweeting with people online tomorrow!”

“It’s been many years since I realized I was ADHD, but only recently have I started recognizing how those symptoms affect my romantic relationships,” writes Liebling. “If you, or anyone you love, live with AD(H)D, please join me for a live #SexTalkTuesday Twitter discussion…we will talk openly about how our romantic lives are affected, ways we can improve things, how and when to address the issue with new partners, what advice we have for others and more. I am really looking forward to shedding some light on this topic and learning from everyone else’s experiences.” To read Liebling’s blog post in full, visit http://darlingway.com/blogs/blog/adhd-loving.

“Sex Talk Tuesday” is a fun, informative, and sex-positive event, where the public can chat with a celebrity guest moderator about the sex topic of the week. For more information, visit www.Twitter.com/SexTalkTuesday.

Darling Way founder and owner Beth Liebling refuses to accept the current view of sexuality; refusing to abide by a view in which emotional intimacy is dismissed as trivial; she abhors the idea that bodies are only beautiful after airbrushing and editing. Liebling knows absolutely there is a better alternative; choosing instead to celebrate beauty, love, and pleasure through artistic, literary, and sensory exploration, rejoicing in all things romantic. A regular guest on “Pillow Talk” on Houston’s ESPN affiliate 97.5FM’s “The Blitz,” Liebling dispenses advice to those looking to bring romance and communication back into relationships.

Liebling’s luxury boutique embraces classical and elegant romanticism as a way of life, and is reminiscent of a different era, when personal relationships were a mainstay of life, romance and courtship flourished, with imagination encouraged and creative expression welcomed. Beauty was recognized in many different forms; the natural human body revered by artists.

The boutique is full of romantic treasures, including elegant gifts, vintage books, inspired menswear, gorgeous lingerie, and more. The treasures found at Darling Way entice the imagination, encouraging joyous and sensual play. Events, including workshops, demonstrations, and salons for discussion, are regularly scheduled at the boutique, to encourage locals and visitors to stop by and engage in meaningful, even controversial, topics of the day.

Dan and Shay Martin of Vibratex to be Recognized at XBIZ Awards

Thank you so much!  “We are delighted and humbled”

Dan and Shay Martin will be recognized this evening, January 12, at the 2017 XBIZ Awards with the Pioneer Award.

One of the industry’s most prestigious honors, the Pioneer Award recognizes company figures who have had a profound impact on the industry through vision, innovation and courage, and continue to provide a guiding light for those who came after them.

d81477b1-19b6-4b37-99dd-63aef24a3f3a
Dan and Shay would like for all Vibratex customers and all their friends in the industry to know how grateful and humbled they are.

“We are so touched by this generous recognition, and we want to thank our friends and customers in the industry from the bottom of our hearts,” says Shay Martin, who started helping out in the family business during her high school years, and has served as Vice President since 1999.

To this day, Vibratex continues to be a second-generation, family-owned company, based in Napa, Calif. The company prides itself on its unique, thoughtfully crafted pleasure pieces and on its long-standing dedication to product quality and consumer satisfaction.
Vibratex rose to fame over 30 years ago by introducing America to the blended-orgasm vibrator (today, the Rabbit Habit Original Deluxe).

Later, the company was instrumental in saving the iconic Magic Wand massager not once but twice. First, when Hitachi had stopped sales to the US market, and then a second time when the Japanese company decided to remove its name from the Magic Wand.

More recently, Vibratex brought the cordless Magic Wand Rechargeable to consumers, together with Hitachi. Vibratex remains the sole importer to North America of the Magic Wand.

In addition to their work with Vibratex and Magic Wand branded products, Dan and Shay have supported people coming into industry, and have helped new brands get off the ground, like We-Vibe and Jimmyjane.

“We’ve seen such wonderful change in our industry over the years,” reflects Shay Martin.

“The empowerment of women, greater openness about sexuality, acceptance of others and so many amazing products brought about by innovation and thinking outside the box. But one thing that has not changed is the fact that we all support each other in this business and are like a big family. For that we are continually grateful,” she concludes.

The 2017 Pioneer Award recipients will be honored on January 12 during an on-screen segment at the adult industry’s biggest night, the 2017 XBIZ Awards show at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Other Pioneer Award recipients this year are Ron Cadwell of CCBill, Kelly Holland of Penthouse and Larry Garland of Eldorado.
