Darling Way Founder Beth Liebling to Speak at Adult Novelty Expo

Owner of Houston Area Luxury Boutique to Discuss Adult Business-Related Pitfalls! 

Beth Liebling, founder and owner of Houston Heights-based luxury boutique Darling Way (http://darlingway.com), will be participating in a panel discussion on Wednesday, January 18 at the upcoming Adult Novelty Expo in Las Vegas. Dubbed “the CES of sex toys” by Wired magazine, the trade-only show for pleasure product professionals takes place at the Paradise Tower in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and will be restricted to trade attendees.

“It’s my absolute pleasure to share what I have learned about running my business with colleagues from across the country; this is how I pay forward the guidance I have received from so many others,” says Liebling. “There is no replacement for the camaraderie, support, and experience one gains from attending ANE, and it’s an honor to be included as a speaker.”


LIebling will be participating in “Mo Money, Mo Problems” from 11am – 12pm at Festival Hall C near Paradise Tower, which discusses marketing to the LGBTQ community. “Too often, adult-related businesses are turned down for everything from merchant accounts, to loans to basic checking accounts just because of the nature of the business,” reads the panel discussion. “Find out how to avoid these pitfalls when it comes to dealing with transaction processors, banks, venture capital groups and more. Also learn tricks of the trade to maximize e-tailing profits and maximizing customer retention.” Liebling will be joined by Kelly Shibari of ThePRSMGroup, Kim Airs of Grand Opening, and Gary Jackson of CCBill; the panel will be moderated by Sherri Shaulis, AVN Senior Editor of Pleasure Products.

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.
