8850 started with a purpose: To help people feel good about feeling good.
We love our play time, whether it’s solo or with a partner. What we don’t love — having to check our personal values at the door when it comes to responsible sex toys. Self Care and Pleasure should be equally as good for you, as it is for the planet.
After searching across the industry, we discovered our values just aren’t reflected in the majority of sexual health and pleasure products available today. As we began researching the products we were using, and the industry at large, we discovered a dirty little secret (and not the fun kind): There are no set standards in this unregulated, global industry and the range of bad to good within the product pool of choice is vast and mostly unchartered.
Bottom-line: We didn’t see the changes we wanted, so we decided to make some of our own. We're inviting you to join us on a journey to learn together, along with a handful of other change agents in the industry.
We’re on a mission to make positive change in the world of “novelty” by creating transparency and a new way forward, starting with the 8850 Sexdex. You’ll notice The Sexdex rating on all of our products. To be ultra clear, we’re looking for best-in-class performance from everything we carry on this site. Rest assured, you’ll FEEL good about the choices you’re making here.
It’s no small undertaking, but well worth it in the end. And that’s where 8850 comes in. We’re all about monumental achievements … in play and life, and we’re big believers that the journey is half the fun. Hope you love our picks as much as we did making them.
p.s. You may wonder, why us? Because we’re a collective of individuals in the health + self care industries, and we know a thing or two about how to make things that are good for you. You’ll get to know more about us soon.
At 8850, we're committed to creating a positive impact. We reduce our environmental footprint, support sexual freedom, prioritize healthy work conditions, nurture diversity and inclusion, and encourage a positive work culture.
Only the best
We research each 8850 partner meticulously and test drive every product. At the base is how well it performs, and then we examine it to ensure it's a good and healthy choice for you – and for the world.
