Our very own chemist, Tim Crawford, was interviewed on the “Derek D and Peter Dickem Show” Saturday night. Tim is the Director of Scientific Affairs at Doc Johnson, which means that he is responsible for any scientific development and controls within the company. The interviewed covered topics ranging from how he concocts a product, to what the office environment is like in mega sex toy company Doc Johnson.

When asked how he designs a product from start to finish, Crawford offered an anecdote in which Chad, Doc’s Chief Officer of Operations, asked Crawford to create something that will “make anal sex easier”. He said that there are about 800,000 chemicals in his library, and he simply works from the ground up. Once finished with his anal lube concoction, and it was approved, he gave it to a female friend as a gift. Crawford said that his female friend was so happy with it that during sex she began screaming Tim’s name instead of her husband’s!
Of course, with great power comes with great responsibilities, and Tim has the extremely important responsibility of making sure all of the products he concocts are body-safe. When asked about government health regulations, Tim said that there are many, and that he is conscious of them every time he makes a new product. For example, with his “Salad Tossing Spray”, Tim made sure that not only did the product work perfectly, but that it also corresponded with all of those health regulations.
As for the environment in such a sexualized business, Tim noted that the women far outnumber the men in the office. However, in this business, we are all equally “open” when it comes to toy testing. It just depends on what your “parts” allow you to try.
Kudos to Tim for a very fun and informative interview!
