    Plus, you can enter to win your very ownCrystal Delights Aurora Borealis Frosted Crystal Butt Plug with just a comment on this post before September 20th, 2013.Many thanks to Shellie and Crystal Delights for sponsoring this giveaway and answering my questions:

    Krista -How does one get started in the business of making gorgeous butt plugs?

    Shellie - This is kind of an interesting story! Crystal Delights actually started as a digital product in the virtual world Second Life! The virtual world is built on the use of personal avatars that let you interact with other people and objects virtually. We developed a digital dildo that allowed your avatar to orgasm. Many companies today want a presence in virtual worlds and they take their product or service and have it made into a virtual product, we on the other hand did exactly the opposite and took our digital product and turned it into a real life product! With my previous employer I was looking for new products that could be carried on the website, one of the places that I went to source some great new products was the Boston Fetish Fleamarket sponsored by NELA (The New England Leather Alliance) - there I saw a metal plug with a beautiful crystal in it and I said to the owner, you should make these in glass too, she said she wasn't interested but that I should do it, well… here we are!

    Crystal Delights Frosted Plug

    K -You support a lot of causes with your work, how did that come about?

    S - Again, this is something that started along with Crystal Delights in SecondLife, we had a "dance club" that people would come to just hang out and interact, on the dance floor we had a donation box where people would donate "Lindens", the money source in Second Life, for their appreciation for good music and good conversation with others, there was a group in Second Life that held a fundraiser for charity, Relay for Life, we would make donations to them. It was just an easy decision to continue our charitable causes in real life as well. The Colors Against Cancer campaign is something close to our hearts, we all know someone that themselves or a family member is or has suffered with cancer. Even within our own family this has personal connections. My uncle died from a long battle with colon cancer and Andrew's mother is a 30 year plus breast cancer survivor, I myself have 5 plus years after a malignant melanoma removal so our new black glass has a special significance to me!

    K -You also haven't shied away from aligning yourself with porn stars, have you had any doubts about that or was it a natural connection?

    S -It does seem like a natural connection to me, we want to maintain a classy image, but it seems like a win-win situation when you consider the possibility of being able to get good quality toys to replace unsafe unhealthy toys in movies, and there is nothing like a porn stars fans, they are a very loyal and appreciative audience! Also, we have seen the movie industry changing, there are many more sex positive and women owned film studios making quality "art" that we want to make sure we stay involved in!

    K -What are your favorite types of feedback or product reviews? Do you have any funny stories you can share?

    Crystal Delights Plug

    S - I LOVE customer feedback and reviews, we have made changes and I believe have better products because of interaction with our customers, it isn't really a funny story, but one of my favorites is that we started with a long stemmed small bulb plug, it sold really well and we were really happy with our sales, I had a person on twitter who asked to review our plug and after her extensive testing she came back to me and said its good, BUT, it could be much better if the stem were shorter! We shortened up the stem and it wasn't long before the short stemmed small bulb plug was and remains our leading seller. A funny story…we were vending at a show and a customer came up to me to tell me that she had purchased a plug off of our website for her mother, she said, its not like my mother uses butt plugs, but it sits on her desk in her office as a pretty paperweight, she said every time she walks into her mothers office she has to smile because she sees the butt plug and knows that her mother has no idea what it really is!

    K - That's hilarious and wonderful! What's your favorite thing about your job?

    S - This is an easy one! The creativity is my favorite part of my job, it is amazing to have boxes of sparkling crystals at my fingertips, to have the ability to dream up products that will bring so much pleasure to so many people, I am very grateful to have this be my "job"

    K - Thank you so much Shellie! Your products really do bring so much pleasure to so many people.

      Krista, what a wonderful interview! It's always great to learn more about the people behind the products, especially the more unique and creative ones, like Crystal Delights'. I've been a fan of CD for several years and even got to meet Shellie at an expo. Whoever wins this plug is a lucky person!
    • Emma: September 04, 2013 20:58

    • Amber: September 05, 2013 01:01

    • Reenie: September 05, 2013 01:02
      Crystal Delight is definitely a great company and Shellie is absolutely amazing. It would also be amazing if those tails plugs can become exchangeable (one plug, many different tails to choose from and can switch tails from day to day)!
      Thanks for giving this wonderful opportunity!
    • Camryn: September 05, 2013 01:46
      Wow, I didn't know they started virtually! Very cool. Also, "boxes of sparkling crystals at my fingertips"? I can only dream of such things. Her job rocks!
    • Renny: September 05, 2013 03:58

    • Erica Best: September 08, 2013 00:48
      wow it so nice i would love this for my birthday
    • Pash: September 09, 2013 18:35
      I love the plug. I haven't gotten to try out any like this and I would love to get the chance. I have only used silicone and rubber which are ok, but I believe others would be better. Especially ones that are not squishy.
    • Deon: September 09, 2013 23:02
      So grateful for this contest, I hope to be able to use it well :).
    • Trix: September 09, 2013 23:28
      I've heard raves about these plugs--and so pretty, too!
    • Dolly: September 09, 2013 23:53
      I love the glass jewel plugs! Much better than the metal ones.
    • ImaGodiva: September 10, 2013 17:34
      I don't have a Crystal Delights toy yet - I would love to win one, they're beautiful!
    • MrsMcX: September 10, 2013 17:36
      I've never tried any Crystal Delight toys, but I definitely will after this article. Great read!
    • john patterson: September 11, 2013 05:50
      Beautiful, to the unknowing, would not question it on the end table, they would assume it was art
    • Mr. k: September 11, 2013 07:47
      thank you for a great giveaway.
    • Lee J: September 11, 2013 10:15
      Mmm, beautiful piece of work. A welcome alternative to yesteryear's awful-looking, awful-for-you plugs.
    • rach74: September 11, 2013 15:33
      Oooh yes
    • TJtheMadHatter: September 11, 2013 18:42

      Their plugs look so good you wouldn't need to hide them I'm the drawer.
      And when worn best to show it off
    • Hip: September 18, 2013 01:17
      Gorgeous piece of Art! Great article and a great product! It would like nice in our bedroom. More importantly, in my wife! She has been looking for something along this line. Fingers crossed!! ;)
    • The Scientist: September 18, 2013 02:26
      Oh my gosh, I remember Crystal Delights from when I used to play Second Life but I never put it together that they were one and the same. This does make CD even more awesome than they already are.
    • Ellie Rae: September 18, 2013 05:40
      So pretty! I've never used a glass plug before...
    • SophieM: September 18, 2013 11:13
