NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Doc Johnson’s recent profile in an LA Weekly photo essay, Dildos and Butt Plugs, Made in L.A.: Local Sex Toy Empire Doc Johnson Turns 40,” has been joined by a new full-length companion feature out today, “A Sex-Toy Empire is Thriving in North Hollywood.”

The article delves into the company’s long legacy, offering readers a closer look at what it takes to run the largest sex toy manufacturing company in America.

Authored by journalist Gustavo Turner, both the photo essay and the article showcase some of the day-to-day operations of Doc Johnson’s North Hollywood campus, describing how the company is “bringing sex toys into the current era of slick, smooth, Apple-inspired dildos, dongs, plugs, vibrators and even more exotic forms (like the soon-to-be-launched ‘Tryst’).”

According to Doc Johnson’s COO and Creative Director Chad Braverman, the company is excited to receive coverage from a publication as visible and influential as LA Weekly.

“Doc Johnson and LA Weekly are both Los Angeles-area institutions that began around the same time, and even though we do very different jobs, there’s common ground in the commitments we’ve made to the community and to local workers,” Braverman says. “It was fantastic to be recognized as a company that has kept most manufacturing in-house and created jobs in the U.S. since 1976, unlike a lot of others that only began exploring better practices a few years ago when labor outsourcing became a hot-button issue.”

Doc Johnson currently employs a staff of 500 team members at the company’s 215,000 square foot campus in North Hollywood, with plans to continue expansion through the end of 2016 and beyond.

This year marks the company’s 40th anniversary of operations — a significant milestone that not only represents four decades of exceptional service and growth, but also provides a starting point for new opportunities in the coming years.

“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we’re very grateful for the opportunity to share a piece of our history and a bit about our vision for the future,” Braverman added. “Innovation has always been at the core of our strategy, and we’re more committed than ever to raising the bar in all facets of what we do.”
