Doc Johnson Care & Maintenance tips!

5 Mar

Hey everyone! Look at what Erica put together for you!

Many of you love our products, but are unsure about how to keep them in prime condition. With all the conflicting information online and in magazines about proper toy maintenance, we can understand the confusion. Here’s a short guide to keeping your Doc Johnson products looking and feeling the best!

Silicone

Whether your toy is a dildo, masturbator, or other device, Silicone is the easiest material to clean because it is nonporous and already so hygienic. You can take several routes with this one– either wash the toy with warm water and soap, boil it for 3 minutes in water, spray it with a 10% bleach solution, or simply pop it into the top-rack of a dishwasher and run it as usual!

UR3

Ultra-Realistic 3.0, or UR3, is the 3rd generation of our best-selling Ultra-Realistic family of products. It is by far the most lifelike material in the industry. To keep these guys in top working shape, wash your toy with mild soap and warm water, then pat it dry. Allow it to completely dry before storage. UR3 is porous and must be stored dusted in talc powder or conrstarch—and do not store them near other materials, as this might eventually cause a reaction that breaks down the product. We suggest our UR3 Refresh Powder, which you can view on our website here: http://www.docjohnson.com/index.php/new-products/ur3-refresh-powder.html

If you follow these directions, your UR3 toy will remain your best friend for years to come. Use only with water-based lubricants.

Lubes/Lotions

These are fairly simple to maintain—simply store your lubes and lotions upright in a cool dry place. Don’t forget to check the expiration date, if applicable!

PVC/ABS/R5

Whether in the form of a vibrator, dildo, or plug, you can clean your PVC, ABS, and R5 (another Doc-Johnson-coined term to mean our fifth generation of “Realistic”) toys with Doc Johnson Antibacterial Toy Cleaner, or with warm water and antibacterial soap. Dry thoroughly before storing, and if the toy isn’t waterproof, do not submerse it in water! As with our UR3 toys, do not store your PVC, ABS, or R5 toys directly next to any other materials, as this might eventually cause a material reaction.

Doc Johnson products are built to last, as long as you care for them properly. We hope you find this guide handy!

The James Deen line debuts in July 2012!

Doc Johnson Announces Partnership with Adult Superstar James Deen (!!!!!)

13 Feb

Doc Johnson and James Deen team up for exclusive new lifelike toy line

James Deen teams up with Doc Johnson

Doc Johnson and world-renowned adult film star James Deen are proud to announce an ongoing partnership that will debut with an anatomically-exact casting of James Deen’s penis as the newest addition the Doc Johnson SuperStars collection; the industry can expect the big reveal of this new SuperStar lifelike dildo at the July 2012 ANME expo. Doc Johnson has consistently signed only the biggest and the best in the industry with their collections garnering stellar results and strong sales, and Deen will only further this reputation.

Deen’s boy-next-door looks mixed with his playful demeanor has not only catapulted him to the forefront of the adult industry, but have also garnered him mainstream attention—most recently in the form of an ABC Nightline Special that dubbed him the “sex symbol of the Facebook generation” and with best-selling author, Bret Easton Ellis (of American Psycho fame) meeting with Deen to discuss a mainstream movie part that Easton is writing specifically for the affable adult star. As the breaking news of James Deen’s signing with Doc Johnson spread yesterday through Twitter and Facebook, fans clamored in excitement. All parties are expecting a strong debut for Deen’s DJ SuperStar cock.

Doc Johnson COO, Chad Braverman, said “We’ve wanted to sign James Deen for a while now; he is a great performer with a very enthusiastic fan base. James is accessible to his fans, very mainstream marketable, and has such an engaging personality – this partnership is a perfect fit for us. We plan on doing it justice by creating the best James Deen products possible.”

At the age of 25, James Deen has already become one of the most recognizable names and faces in the adult industry. He has appeared in almost 900 films and has been recognized with two Male Performer of the Year Awards from XBiz and one from AVN—an impressive feat, given that he is one of the youngest male stars in the industry. In addition to his remarkable success in adult movies, he has an ardent following both on his blog and on Twitter, where he often shares insight to his daily life, funny anecdotes, and candid photos. Deen is poised to skyrocket into the mainstream with so much buzz surrounding his burgeoning popularity. This bold move to market his own toy collection is both smart and timely.

“I am extremely flattered to be working with Doc Johnson.  They have always provided the highest quality products for adult novelties and I am proud to be a part of that family.” James Deen goes on to say I am super excited that Doc Johnson will be molding my penis. I have always wanted to be able to throw my penis at people when I got mad at them and now I can… I guess you can masturbate with it too if you want to do that kind of thing. But seriously I am very flattered and I hope everyone can have lots of fun with my cock!”

January 2012 ANME and XBiz Shows, that’s a wrap!

14 Jan

We’re back from the big January shows! I have to tell you guys…we really made a big splash this month with our awesome mega-booth at the AMNE show and the XBiz Retail Expo. The main crowds at these shows are retailers and distributors, both domestic and international; they were delighted by our 100+ new Doc Johnson products on display, including several full lines and new display units. It was so exciting to FINALLY unveil all of the goodies we’ve been working on for months and months!

Our COO, Chad Braverman, was pleased with the show feedback: “We were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response we received at ANME and XBiz Retail. WonderLand had a powerful impact and was certainly the talk of the show. We saw great reactions to our new Black Rose light BDSM line and for the revamped Vac-U-Lock packaging. The insights of the industry are invaluable to us; there is so much to be learned by the first impressions and comments as we show our newest products to our customers.”

The new offerings include the sophisticated Black Rose line of light BDSM products and the revamped packaging for the famous Vac-U-Lock harness systems, for which the Doc sales team received glowing feedback. A newly refreshed School of Doc series of educational pamphlets were debuted to much fanfare from retailers and distributors alike; all five colorful pamphlets and the playful holder are ready to ship and are free of charge. The School of Doc makes education easy and fun for both staff and end-consumers, giving overviews on everything from materials to vibrators and lubricants.

Above all, the new WonderLand massager line was indeed the talk of the trade show, with many attendees falling quickly in love at first sight. The five distinct WonderLand massagers are made of body safe silicone, and feature 10 intense functions, push button controls, and a waterproof design. At the ANME meet-and-greet, the buzz started with the Doc Johnson staff appearing as characters related to the fantasy theme of WonderLand. The excitement didn’t stop until the booth was taken down, and the pre-order numbers demonstrated the strong response.

“The recently concluded ANME show was an overwhelming success for Doc Johnson. The response to our January collection was beyond expectation and resulted in a record number of pre-orders,” says sales manager, Greg Holdridge. “The newly launched Wonderland line is simply amazing, and the in-store support will redefine merchandising.  Our couples-friendly light BDSM line, Black Rose, was a hit for the look, quality, and excellent pricing. With additions to our staple brands, such as Platinum, Mood and GoodHead, we focused on category expansion in a proven format.  The newly repackaged Vac-U-Lock line boasts a new ‘it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3’ marketing campaign to support the even easier to understand color-coded numbering artwork treatment – a dream come true for retailers and consumers.”

Rounding out the tradeshows was the 2012 XBiz awards, with Doc Johnson’s beloved CEO, Ron Braverman, receiving the ‘Industry Pioneer’ XBiz Award. Presented the award by his son, Doc Johnson’s COO, Chad Braverman, the crowd hung on every word of Ron Braverman’s moving acceptance speech.

On receiving this honorary award, Ron Braverman, Founder and CEO of Doc Johnson, said: “It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers as a pioneer in this industry. I have spent most of my life building a business that has maintained a leadership position in manufacturing adult products right here in America– it hasn’t always been easy. Doc Johnson has grown over 35 years to now employ 500 people and house facilities that occupy over 250,000 square feet – nothing is more validating than coming to work every day and seeing my vision realized. This is proof that hard work and quality products can truly make a company prosper. I am excited about the future of Doc Johnson; we have a diverse and talented team of people that I have cultivated over the years. Vital changes are being made in my company, and across the industry as a whole. It’s an invigorating time for all of us.”

Movember 2011 wrap up – saying goodbye to the mustache

5 Dec

Movember has come to a close. It’s wasn’t easy being a lean, mean, mustached machine, but our COO, Chad Braverman, was just that over the course of “Movember”, a movement in which men all over the world let their mustaches grow over the month of November in support of men’s health issues. We asked our fans to sponsor Chad on his quest to change the face of men’s health and, as a company, promised to match the funds raised.

When we spoke to Chad during Movember, he described his burgeoning stache as “incredibly dirty but at the same time beyond manly and somewhat itchy.” Today, that moustache is gone, but the giving spirit of Movember lives on, thanks to all of your generous donations. So far, Movember has raised 174 million in support of such worthy causes that affect men’s health, with a heavy percentage of donated funds going towards fighting prostate cancer. Because of people like Chad, and those who have graciously opened their hearts and wallets to sponsor Chad, we are one step closer to beating some of the world’s most devastating diseases!

Who wore it best?

Movember update #2 – attack of the ‘stache

29 Nov

Friedrich Nietzsche. Salvador Dali. Albert Einstein. Burt Reynolds. What do these men have in common?

A mustache of course.

The ‘stache has gained and waned in popularity, but it has certainly made a positive comeback. Movember is changing the face of men’s health, one moustache at a time. During November each year, thousands of men let their hair down, so to speak, in the US and around the world. Armed with their moustaches and a dream, these men raise vital funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men, by asking friends and family to sponsor them. As a result, Movember has been extremely successful, raising a cool 174 million for men’s health since its infancy.

Many mustached men.

Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, and those taking part in Movember have the great responsibility of choosing what kind of moustache to grow. Doc Johnson’s COO, Chad Braverman, describes his moustache as “incredibly dirty but at the same time beyond manly and somewhat itchy”. However, the possibilities for moustache styles and shapes are almost limitless.

You can sponsor Chad on his official Movember page. Doc Johnson will match every dollar raised by Chad’s Movember Team in the month of November. Please open your hearts and wallets to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer. Every dollar counts.

And again, it’s The Doc vs The Chad… what do you think now that Chad’s mo has grown? Is he rivaling the Doc?
