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

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!”

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?

Our COO, Chad, is raising money for men’s health through Movember…check out his ‘stache!

21 Nov

During November each year, Movember  is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. Men grow a Mo (moustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards.

With their Mo, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men – so far they’ve raised $174 million dollars in the last 8 years. Funds raised through the Movember US campaign are committed to programs supporting prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives run by Movember and through the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

Chad is ready for his close-up...

Doc Johnson has always been an advocate of awareness for men’s and women’s health, and Chad Braverman, COO of Doc Johnson, has taken this opportunity to join the Movember movement and raise funds for this worthwhile campaign. “It’s a solemn fact that about 1,500 people die each day in the United States due to cancer. It’s difficult to be aware of that statistic, and not try to take action to lower those numbers.” Chad’s Movember moustache is just one step in the fight against cancer, but every step is valuable.

You can sponsor Chad on his official Movember page. Every dollar counts in the fight against cancer and the promotion of men’s health awareness. Doc Johnson will match every dollar raised by Chad’s Movember Team in the month of November. Please consider giving today.

We’ll give you updates on the progress of both Chad’s moustache and the funds raised. Check out the first round of The Doc vs. The Chad…

A new look for “Made in the U.S.A”

13 Sep

We recently saw the cover story on the current issue of Dwell Magazine  and it got us thinking about how many American companies rushed to outsource over the last 2 decades and how the renaissance that Dwell is praising is something that never changed for us. We make 75% of our full product line right here in the USA.  And that is A LOT of product, folks… to the tune of about 5,000,000 total pieces a year, on average. 5 Million! And making those products means keeping about 500 people at Doc Johnson employed. Which? Is pretty damn awesome.

So, how can you tell if one of our (5 million…oh come on, it’s impressive!) products is ‘Made In The USA’? It’s easy – we label them. We’re big on transparency. We actually just updated the label’s design and made it a little more modern – and here’s a sneak peek at our new version:

The beginning of “35 Things About Doc”

31 Aug

Today is the 35th anniversary for Doc Johnson and we made the most of it! From celebrating in the office, to sharing the love with our fans, to talking with press, it’s been busy! But that good happy kind of busy, ya know?
One of my favorite things we worked on this week, as part of the anniversary celebration, were the “35 Things About Doc” quotes – which you’ll be seeing over the next 35 days…there are SO many passionate people who have 10, 20, 30+ years with the company! You just don’t see that very often. And we’re still growing.

35 voices, 35 different perspectives, 35 people out of the over 500 who make Doc Johnson work.

Doc Johnson was born in 1976 when founder Ron Braverman purchased a very small company that sold adult toys along with gag novelties and rubber fishing items. Since then, the Doc Johnson brand has grown and evolved, but one thing that has remained constant is a strong commitment to American manufacturing. In the beginning, Doc Johnson’s North Hollywood factory was just 1,500 square feet with 9 employees. Eventually, the company moved around the corner to its present locations and secured a 33,000 square foot building. Doc Johnson now has a family of over 500 people, occupies over 250,000 square feet, and proudly offers a catalog of almost 10,000 products. It is the largest sex toy company in the world, and while business has shifted overseas for some products, the majority of Doc Johnson products are still “Proudly Made in the USA”.

Another theme that has remained constant in the history of Doc Johnson is an emphasis on nurturing employee relationships.

#1 … from the man, himself – Doc Johnson’s founder and CEO:

“It makes me so proud to have a family of people that I look forward to working with every day. We started out manufacturing in America and when the going got tough, most looked overseas – Doc Johnson didn’t; and today, we are still proud that we can continue to say “Made in America.”” – Ron Braverman, 35 years with Doc Johnson
