ABOUT THE FOUNDER
“The goal has always been to put better quality toys in more hands”
Entering the BDSM scene in 2011, Paraphilia Toy’s founder was disappointed by toys available on shelves and online. The vast majority were shoddily made imports using questionable materials and guaranteed to fall apart with moderate use. Cheap materials passed off as ultra-premium, corners cut, and claims of “luxury” and “quality” with no substance to back them up. The only pieces they could find that met their standards for quality were vintage items in private collections.
So they set about making their own gear with two main goals: 1. Produce effective and beautiful items of the highest possible quality that will last decades 2. Demystifykink toy and gear construction sopeople can make better informed purchases.
The goal has always been to put better quality toys in more hands, which is why we do our best to explain every detail of Paraphilia’s products and their construction.
BALANCING FORM AND FUNCTION
One of the core principles behind our founder’s work is the belief that form must always follow function. Using traditional saddlery, woodworking and cobbling techniques, they build gear that’s made to be used. They strive to reduce potential failure points, reinforce areas under stress, and choose materials that provide the best durability and look good while doing it.
Superfluous decoration in mass-produced gear is often applied to cover flaws and hide shoddy workmanship. Our founder’s designs showcase the beauty of well made leather, quality hardware, and carefully honed skills. When they do apply a bit of extra flourish, most often for a special project, it must never detract from the durability or function of the piece.
