PITTSBURGH — Employees at online adult retail and entertainment site Adult Empire were recently treated to a special visit from popular sociologist Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals at the company’s headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Tibbals is a prominent sociologist with a Bachelor of Science in Physiological Sciences and Sociology and Master’s in Sociology with a focus on gender and sexuality, with emphasis on the socio-cultural significance of adult content and its production — including issues related to law, free speech, and workplace organizational structures.

The doctor’s jam-packed tour, which she recounted in a recent Uproxx article, included a peek into the busy adult entertainment office’s day-to-day operations of sales, shipping and the development of AE’s movie production division, AE Films.

Tibbals also sat down for an interview with Adult Empire’s own media personalities Chelsea and Becky to promote her new book, “Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment,” which details her experiences in the adult industry and examines the country’s conflicted relationship with pornography.

A YouTube video captured some of the action.

“It was a pleasure to welcome Dr. Chauntelle to Adult Empire, where she got a first-hand view of what we do in the main office, warehouse and data center,” said Adult Empire’s Director of Marketing, Megan Wozniak. “It was great to spend the day with her, show her our latest products and interview her for our website.”

According to Wozniak, there was plenty for Tibbals to see, including more than 4,500 sex toys, 150,000 streaming adult scenes, 30,000 streaming full length movies and 60,000 DVD/Blu-rays in its collection.
