New York City is the sex capital of the world.
It’s a hub for both professionals and amateurs, with one sex toy store and a sex toy boutique boasting more than a dozen stores and a website.
And there’s even a new sex toy shop opening in Manhattan.
It all started with an idea.
Sarah E. Stokes is the owner of Pinky’s, a sex shop and boutique in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, with her two teenage daughters, Sarah and Brooke.
They were inspired to create the Pinky & Co. brand because of its promise to bring the perfect sex toy to the masses.
But the real reason they launched their company, Stokes says, was to bring customers their dream toy.
“The sex toys we have now are really limited to what you can get from a porn shop,” she says.
And we wanted to offer something that we thought people would enjoy, and we thought women could enjoy too.” “
We wanted to create something for people who were into sex but didn’t want to do a full-fledged porn shop.
And we wanted to offer something that we thought people would enjoy, and we thought women could enjoy too.”
Stokes had previously worked as a sex worker, and it was through that experience that she was inspired to design Pinky&Co. The company, she says, has the following characteristics: “It’s not just a novelty toy.
It also feels really good on the body.
It feels very sexy.
It takes you into a whole new world of pleasure.”
The idea for Pinky has been in the works for nearly a year, and the company is now ready to launch the first product.
Pinky is a fully silicone toy, which Stokes explains is “one of the best materials for a sex item to come out of the industry.”
The silicone is infused with sex-stimulating ingredients like natural rubber, latex, silicone and even synthetic pigments.
The silicone in Pinky will feel like skin, she tells ABC News, so it won’t itch.
And while the silicone is not the same as real skin, the company claims it is less sensitive to heat, which makes it a good alternative to latex.
And, unlike the silicone in other sex toys and sex toys with silicone attachments, Pinky won’t require you to purchase any attachments.
“If you’re a little bit uncomfortable with the way a silicone vibrator feels, you could do a couple of things with a silicone toy,” Stokes tells ABC.
“You could use a different attachment and use a smaller one, or you could use an ordinary vibrator.
You can also just get one that has a different material and it feels better to use.
So it’s really, really different from what you would find with any other sex toy.”
Stokers says Pinky, which is currently available at Pinky Toys, is a “very intimate experience.”
“There are lots of vibrators out there,” she explains.
“There’s also a lot of different types of sex toys that you can buy, and there’s also silicone sex toys.”
Stakes says Pinkie & Co., which will launch in mid-October, will be available at select sex toy stores, as well as online.
For the moment, the online store will offer only a handful of toys, but the retail version will soon be available.
And it’s already been well received.
Stakes, who says she’s been hooked since she was a little girl, says that when she first ordered a pink vibrator, she “just couldn’t believe” it would be the “best sex toy ever.”
“My girls, they’ve been playing with this since they were little, and they’ve never seen a sex object they didn’t like,” she tells the ABC.
But as she grew older, she got to know Pinky.
“It just made my vagina grow,” she recalls.
“I was really into the sex toys when I was young.
It was a really fun time for me.”
And so, when she got married, Stakes decided to make Pinky a reality.
“Sex toys and the toys that I grew up with were all about stimulation and sensation,” she notes.
“So, it was a natural fit.”
And that’s exactly what Stokes was hoping to accomplish when Pinky was first unveiled.
“At first, it’s very difficult to explain to my kids, but I really wanted to have them know what they were getting into,” she adds.
“They can just sit down and say, ‘I want this.
I want that.
I need it.’
And I wanted them to feel it in their mouths.”
And it worked.
“My daughters have since told me that they love it,” Stakes explains.
And Stokes also tells ABC that her daughters “really love that Pinky feels so good on their bodies.”
So the next time you’re in the mood for a new toy, don’t hesitate
