I saw the season 3 Netflix show "Grace and Frankie" starting a sex toy business. How do I achieve something like what they were doing?
There has been some increased interest in learning how to start a sex toy business with the Netflix show Grace and Frankie. Some simply want to know if there really is a sex toy like the Vybrant Ménage à Moi or sex toy manufacturer like Purple Orchid, while others wonder how hard it would be to start their own sex toy business like Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin did. The answer is that it certainly is possible to achieve but keep in mind that it is a complex business and as somewhat demonstrated in the show with issues like knockoffs and the challenges of marketing in traditional ways. So before you spend any money learn at least the basics of how the adult novelty industry works and how to best market your sex toy business through our beginners tutorial. Keep in mind, this is a highly competitive and unique type of business and we want our clients to be educated and empowered to make their sex toy business a reality.
Also, please understand that the show was not very realistic. Just one example of this is when Grace and Frankie break one of the cardinal rules of online sex toy sales when they have their company name printed on their return label in a very obvious way. Customers ordering sex toys want their products shipped discreetly and typically will not order from a company that does that.

How much money does it take to start?
The answer to this is complex because it depends on what you want to do but the bare minimum is going to about $100 per month. However, instead of telling you how much it will definitely take, you need to be prepared to answer some questions first.
Below are examples of questions you need to ask yourself before you invest any money into starting your business. Please don't begin feel overwhelmed if you are unsure when reading them as we are here to help you find the right answers for you and explain to you how all of these things work-
There are many more questions that you will need to find the answers to in order to have a realistic and obtainable business vision and that is what we can help you with by educating you about your options. If you are not willing to start with research and getting educated about this then you are not ready to start a business. Also remember when looking at options that anyone selling you a get rich quick scheme where you do nothing but pay them a fee and sit back on a beach while drinking a margarita is lying to you and running a scam.
You have to take this seriously in order to become successful and that is what we do... we work to educate and provide industry resources to serious entrepreneurs who are willing to do what it takes to make their vision a reality.
How much money can I make?
Again, the answer to this is contingent on what you opt to do based on some of the questions above as well as how much time and the strategy you use in developing your business. Some people make a few hundred dollars a month while others make well over $50,000.00 a day. Think of this just like any business in that you will need to become educated, do your research, plan and be willing to work to make your business vision a reality.
What are the most common questions people starting ask?
We typically work with clients that are just starting out and want to explore a variety of topics. Here are just a few common questions that our clients ask-
Can I write my membership off as a business expense?
Yes, you can deduct this service as a business expense as it services as a business related education program. Speak to your tax preparer for more details.
Can I make a lot of money selling sex toys?
Yes, you absolutely can, but it will require smart choices, hard work and dedication to making that happen. Do NOT believe any company that promises that you will get rich quick with no work required as the old adage of it being too good to be true is correct. However, you can be very successful if you understand the best choices to make for your sex toy business vision and how to implement them.
You need to know how the adult novelty industry works and who to trust as there are many companies looking to make a quick buck off you and have no interest as to whether or not you succeed. That is why we founded our national association (NAASAS), as we believe that empowered professionals in the adult novelty industry can positively impact positive change in the field of sexuality while becoming wealthy doing it.
Is your company simply an affiliate for some of the companies you refer?
No, we have no affiliate relationships with any of the companies we recommend. We have no agenda when it comes to the companies you choose to work with; rather we will simply help you decide what type of company will work best for your sex toy business vision and tell you who our clients have had the most success using.
Do you provide content writing services?
We do not currently offer content writing for our clients, but we may be able to refer you to reputable professionals that can provide freelance writing services depending on availability of writers. We can also provide you with resources on how to find freelance writers.
Do you create websites?
We do not create websites for our clients, but we can refer you to reputable professionals that can create one for you. We can also refer you to companies where you can create your own without having skills in web design.
How can you offer help when you offer sex toys through another part of your business?
