LOS ANGELES — Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics, gives her take on the global landscape of the pleasure products industry in a recent article for the Economic Times in India.
In the article, Colvin offers her insight from the perspective of a woman entrepreneur in a market that is still considered taboo in many parts of the world.
More than 20 years ago, when the company first opened its doors, Colvin was the only woman to own a novelty company.
“She had a vision that women were the future of the pleasure products industry and vowed to change things,” the company says.
With this experience Colvin gives her take on the economic landscape in India and how she sees the future of pleasure products. Colvin is hopeful for the future and feels women entrepreneurs could be a driving force in the sector.
“As a woman entrepreneur I have been faced with many challenges in the pleasure products industry, and many stem from the fact that I am a woman,” Colvin said. “I did my best to overcome everything that has been put in front of me and have come out on top. I encourage all women to follow in my footsteps. It will not be easy, but I promise it will be worth it.”
