Some women are intimidated by pleasure products. What would you say to them?
I say that they need to try it at least once because it may change your whole life. A lot of people are scared of sex toys. Why would you be scared of them? They won’t hurt you. All they’ll do is make things better. A lot of women have never experienced an orgasm. You definitely need to explore your own body. In doing so, that’s going to help sex be better with your partner. It’s weird because some people don’t even know where their actual clitoris is.
When people ask me what product they should get first I tell them, well, if you’re scared of sex toys get Kandi Kisses. It’s not intimidating. It looks like a lipstick. And then if you want to explore where your clitoris is, you’ll find a lot of great things down there.
If a woman’s partner isn’t interested in toys, then what?
Honestly I would tell them maybe they should use the toy for him, or in front of him first. Turn him on by using it in front of him and letting him see it. Maybe he’ll laugh and get into it. I definitely would say if you have a man that is intimidated by toys, do not pull out a big huge vibrator in front of him. He’s automatically going to compare himself to it in size. Get something small. It needs to be something he can feel comfortable with and use and enjoy. No man wants another penis in the bedroom.
What type of woman did you have in mind when you designed this?
I was thinking about the businesswoman and the normal everyday woman who has children. I was at a friend’s house one time – another celebrity but I won’t name names – her daughter and my daughter were playing and they went in her closet and came out like, “Mama what is this?” It was this big huge pink vibrator and I’m like, uh, this is awkward. It was like the size of a microphone. It’s weird how a lot of toys and things aren’t marketed toward women — especially with the popularity of pleasure parties now. I was thinking it would be nice to create something that women could have and not be ashamed of. The Kandi Kisses lipstick and the Make Me Over powder puff is something women can have and feel comfortable using. If you just want to try out a toy, this line is something they can use and not be intimidated by. Doing Kandi Coated Night, my web show, I learned a lot about what people want. I found out a lot of men are intimidated by sex toys.
