KRESGEVILLE, Pa. - Fantasia Home Parties entered the market in 1984, and has spent the past quarter of a century helping women learn about and discreetly shop for sexual enhancement products.
The brainchild of Rina Valan, Fantasia Home Parties was not only one of the first companies of its kind to be founded by a woman, but also one of the few to have been in continual operation for the past 25 years.
"The need for available information and healthy choices was overwhelming, and I wanted to provide a classy and sensible solution for women even though the concept was taboo," Valan said. "Women weren't the main purchasers of sex toys at the time; we were a completely untapped customer base."
Valan said she worked with manufacturers to evaluate the products available
"I had to beg manufacturers to make plus-size lingerie, never mind get a vibrator with some appeal," she said.
But today, Valan noted, the options are endless, and women are more empowered to make their choices.
"Women have taken control of their lives and aren't intimidated by their sexual well-being needs anymore," Valan said. "We now openly embrace our sensual selves while still maintaining our privacy and self respect."
To mark the company's 25th year, Fantasia Home Parties is hosting a year-long birthday celebration for women across the United States. For more information on the company or the celebration, visit FantasiaHomeParties.com.
