The story behind Squeaky Clean Toys – how did it all start ?
Icky & Yucky… or Shrewd & Smart?
In a frenzy of house decluttering, we came across one stubborn box that remained a mystery – it was our collection of naughty adult toys. And there were a LOT. We had old favorites that got replaced by newer models, some that we tried but didn’t quite work for us, some that we never used and were never opened, and more.
So we tallied up the potential value of these unwanted toys and were shocked by what lay in front of us – many of the toys were high-end, designer toys (Lelo, We-vibe, Womanizer, etc) that we had spent between $100-200 on. It was a gold mine!…or so we thought.
At a dinner party later that week, the topic of decluttering came up and to our surprise, our “mystery box” issue quickly became a hot topic. Suddenly, between the six of us, we were thrown into a Sherlock Holmes thriller, each thinking of ways we could each cash in on our fortune.
Surely we could figure out this puzzle!
Yet, after an hour of brainstorming and problem-solving, we were left scratching our heads and we realised that there was no online marketplace for selling our used and unwanted adult toys. And worse, no easy solution after all.
Naturally, we thought, many people will have a strong opinion about buying and selling unwanted adult toys, and questions too – is it an “icky idea” or actually a very savvy idea? Of course there will be backlash from those that think the idea is gross, but the big question we kept coming back around to was “could we help others with the same predicament?”
So we took a chance and set up Squeaky Clean Toys with the intention of solving this “mystery box” dilemma once and for all. We imagined a marketplace where buyers and sellers could easily (and cheaply) both buy and sell adult toys online discreetly. There would be a secure payments system, easily searchable categories (toys, clothing, bondage, better sex, etc.), affordable commissions, anonymity, good customer support, and an opportunity for people to cash in on otherwise unwanted items.
Overall, our mission is to help you live a better, happier sex life, and make a little extra money too, of course in a very practical, discreet, and safe way. We require that all toys be disinfected or sterilised by both the seller before dispatch, and by the buyer once they receive the toy.
But keep in mind, many of these toys have hardly been used – they’re stashed away in some mystery box and can´t wait for “play time.”
It´s time to be bold & brave. So saddle up, take a chance, and have some fun!
You may find exactly what you’ve been waiting for 🙂
The story continues…
Since we started this, we´ve learned a heck of a lot more about sex and toys – stuff we should all have known but our lives were too busy in other ways. The variety of toys for a start – it´s mind-blowing and exciting, and the importance of the material they´re made up of – it´s scary and enlightening!
Our own stash was all top-notch silicone, till more recently we were tempted by a cool-looking transparent jelly dildo ( well that went promptly into the trash once we learned how to pick a body-safe toy.) Not so cool !!!
Our daily reading now revolves around sex toys, how the world uses or views them, and how we can help. We research everything through the fabulous scientific data & medical staff, and sex bloggers that are dedicating their lives to the goodness and positivity of sex.
We´re hooked, and we want to be part of that sex-positive, “open the world´s eyes” movement in our own small way.
Always keeping things professional, clean, simple & secure, we´ll do our utmost to help every member as much as we possibly can in this brave new world of second-hand, sex-related gear. There are loads of sex toys out there to help us grow sexually ( and believe me it´s never too late to start !). It´s just a matter of keeping trying them so you can keep refining that perfect toy box. We´re going to help you afford to do that!
