When I think about dirty talk in the bedroom, the first thing that comes to mind is that episode of Sex and The City when Miranda was hooking up ...Read more
We come into the world in 2006, born from the desire to change the erotic industry and transform it from within. In a world dominated by an unreal, masculinised idea of what sexuality should be, we felt that it was time to lay the cards on the table and work towards a sexuality that was more inclusive, diverse, and real. So that sexuality could become a natural part of normal, day-to-day life, without needing to be hidden or tempered by other types of rhetoric, maintaining a false perception of sexuality in general, and female sexuality in particular. We want to democratise pleasure and fight for equality!
Just like any other social change, this sexual revolution is taking time, but we have already made significant steps towards female empowerment and the quest for pleasure. See them illustrated here in a list of our conquests:
“Yes, the change has been fast but there’s still so much ahead of us. In a single decade the clitoris has been embraced; female masturbation has been discussed; women’s roles in society have changed (look at #metoo, the new wave of feminism; discovering that we are stronger together.) I believe that we can make even more positive change this decade. Look at the sex in TV series and films; it’s a reflection of this new society. Now there are female intimate directors for filming hot scenes… light years away from Bertolucci and Marlon Brando’s ad-libbing in The Last Tango in Paris in which the actresses couldn’t be heard.”
We invest in female talent in all areas. Our team is mainly comprised of women who are outstanding in the variety of sectors needed for Bijoux Indiscrets to keep contributing to the world of sexuality and sexual wellbeing. The leadership team seeks to achieve (and achieves) good family-work balance across the company, the promotion of women in the sector, continued professional development of the team and is very aware of the infinite value of all the voices which make up the brand.
Family-work balance: For us it’s important that professional life doesn’t interfere with personal life. We believe in REAL flexibility. Those women and men who, for personal reasons, need to change their working hours or reduce their working day are, of course, encouraged to reconcile the two parts of their life. We believe that a job should create freedom in all regards.
Training: We believe in teams with ambition, who reinvent themselves and never stop learning. We encourage interest and part-finance the additional studies that our workers engage in. We adapt timetables to their studies and invest in the shared growth of the company. Nobody is left behind.
We all play an important role: We all know the adage that two heads are better than one, and so we encourage our team to participate, offer opinions, create, and make proposals at any stage of our project development. We are all an integral and important part of the whole.
This question is not ours, we read it to Virginie Despentes, but it could well be posed by any of us. But far from going into authorship, we wou...Read more
