The rings are sculpted out of black agate and aventurine then hand polished. The company also has introduced a dildo and anal plug molded from Pyrex glass.
Luxotiq owner Jake Lam said he began designing the items based on what he saw as a lack of elegant, sensual and functional items on the market.
“Some of the products offered out there are not always esthetically pleasing to the eye,” Lam told XBIZ. “That was my main motivation for designing.”
Lam launched the line about a year ago and said since then he has seen considerable sales in the European market.
On the U.S. front, online adult retailer Blowfish and lingerie boutique Kiki De Montparnasse offer the collection. Bay Area-based Blowfish recommends Luxotiq’s stainless steel anal plug in its “beautiful and functional” toy category.
According to Lam, product cleanliness also was a contributing factor in designing the line.
“I wanted to create a safe toy that could be easily cleaned,” Lam told XBIZ.
Every item in Luxotiq’s catalogue features handcrafted items made from either surgical grade stainless steel, colored Pyrex glass or semi precious stones including amethyst, obsidian and rose quartz crystal. Products are not dishwasher safe, given their high-grade materials, but can be cleaned with soap and water or a mild antibacterial agent. The line offers dildos, plugs, rings and beads.
Lam said Luxotiq’s goal is to craft toys that appeal to both body and mind, using the finest materials and artistic design. The entire catalogue is available to wholesalers and retailers here .
