    Crave is a lifestyle brand that is changing the way women experience sex toys through beautifully designed, discreet, and luxurious vibrators. The company was founded on the belief that sexual pleasure, intimacy, and satisfaction are at the core of being human. That sex is healthy, wholesome, and playful, and that delight and flirtation provide vital aspects to everyday life. Most of all, they believe that people crave a variety of sexual experiences and that there should be no judgement, stigma, or shame about that desire. The company’s first product was the Crave Duet, which was the first ever crowd-funded sex toy and went on to secure over $100,000. The company officially launched in February 2013 with a full line of beautifully-designed, luxury vibrators and foreplay jewelry.
