(VAN NUYS, CA) -- Vivid Entertainment Group has signed a licensing deal with Phallix Glass to create a line of hand-blown glass sex toys, with the first four products to be introduced next month.
The artistic line will include some products with the Vivid logo etched or melted into the glass and others with images of individual Vivid Girls actually blown into the glass. There will be a variety of colors and textures, as well as some techniques exclusive to Phallix like the use of the high refraction material dichroic. This according to David Schlesinger, Vivid's Vice President for Licensing. All of the items will be made of durable medical grade borosilicate glass, which is hypoallergenic and dishwasher safe.
The products will be available at Vivid's online store, ShopVivid.com, and at other leading retail and online outlets, starting in October.
"Phallix Glass is definitely the industry leader in its adult category, so we are delighted to be working with them," said Mr. Schlesinger. "Plus these are very beautiful, very cool items that blend excellent craftsmanship with erotic exploration. We think they will be enormously popular."
"The popularity of blown glass erotica is increasing worldwide and we think the new Vivid line will be a sensational addition to this trend," said Rick Plank of Phallix Glass. "Cleanliness and a more enjoyable experience are the leading reasons for switching to glass. All Phallix designs are made of tempered high quality medical grade borosilicate glass, making them safe and highly durable. Adding the powerful Vivid brand name and images of the Vivid Girls will be an exciting offering."
