Objective and principles
In our experience, sex shops offer low - quality sex toys as standard, including dangerous products at overpriced prices (see Sex Toy Museum). Our goal is to carefully select quality erotic toys for you from all over the world with sufficient added value. Such toys, which cannot be replaced by a cheaper product of the same quality. This foundation is expanded by ours principles: fair dealing, good reputation, minimum marketing, no harassment emails and maximum protection of your privacy. We select and test the goods ourselves. We even design some toys. We write tips and recommendations from our own experience and in depth to help you, and not just as a fashion marketing accessory with no added value.
Unusually low prices for sex toys
First, we take 80% goods directly from manufacturers. We can therefore offer wholesale prices for 50% items.
Second, when buying a sex toy, many people make excitement decisions - irrationally. According to the 2015 annual report, the largest store in the Czech Republic, Erotic City, has an average surcharge on the purchase price of 265%, after taking into account discounts and sales, ie. basic surcharge 300%. For web sex shops, the standard surcharge is about 100-150%. In the Extasica sex shop, the basic surcharge is 70%, ie. with sales and discounts 60%. Exceptions are highly established brands such as Satisfyer, where there is a surcharge of only 5-30 % in all stores (10% in our country). You can buy alternative or even identical toys in our country a third to two thirds cheaper than in other sex hops. To verify this statement, we also try to identify sex toys with the international EAN designation.
Thirdly, limited opening hours, free software, usually wholesale packaging (simple packaging) enable low costs, thus also low prices. We spend only 5% of turnover on advertising (the industry average is 20%). You, our customers and your referrals, are our advertising.
Quality and fair action
As of 2018, we are withdrawing from the segment of PVC and hard TPR dildos. PVC remains the clear standard in the world. In the category dildos we just want to pay more attention TPE and liquid silicone. Only in the BDSM segment will we also offer sex toys of lower quality made of PVC leather. Their prices are compared to quality leather at the level of 1/5 but also 1 / 10. Most large sex shops, unlike the Extasica sex shop, do not offer quality BDSM toys at all.
For sale we do not approve sex toys of the lowest quality (for more see Sex Toy Museum) such as dangerous vaginal mirrors, poor-quality handcuffs (which cut hands), poor-quality pumps or inflatable devices (leaks air, does not keep shape). Nylon or plastic immobilization belts with Velcro fasteners. TYou can find these dangerous sex toys in the vast majority of sex shops. Even one reputable sex shop had people write to their website for months that the dangerous anal mirror was cutting their mucous membranes. They still kept selling it :). Such an approach is unfortunately rather standard in sex shops. At Extasica, we throw away dangerous sex toys. If we don't like a safe product, we don't try to sell it at full price - it goes straight to the sale with a description of defects or negatives and for a fraction of the price.
We provide true information in articles and product descriptions. That should be the standard, but it isn't. See, for example, whether your favorite sex shop mentions popular marketing nonsense in the description of the vacuum pump, how the pump will lengthen your penis, or how an enema benefits health and cleansing the body. . . We describe the advantages, disadvantages and alternative ways of using sex toys. We usually compensate customers for errors with a 10 % discount.
Thanks to direct communication with manufacturers, we are able to advance the development of some products or determine qualitatively better properties.
Selection, quality testing of erotic aids, description and photography
We usually choose sex toys at world exhibitions (Hong Kong, Shang Hai) from direct suppliers, a smaller part we choose on the Internet from manufacturers or distributors. Of the products we have viewed for sale, we accept only 1% based on quality, appearance, variability of use and price. We are looking for added value, something that is not available for other erotic toys or their combination for the same price. It does not make sense to have, for example, 20 almost the same dildos or handcuffs, hogtie cross, bed straps and other simple low-quality handcuffs, if it can be (often with us for the same or lower price) fully and safer replaced by a combination of quality leather handcuffs and rope or stylish chain.
Products are tested before being put on offer (test methodology). You cannot buy erotic toys from us that are easily capable of causing injuries or abrasions (eg Velcro harnesses or insufficiently sanded metal tools). Maybe you are deprived of a lot of products that we do not like or do not rate as quality, but you have quality assurance.
We usually photograph the goods ourselves in high resolution and normal light. We do not edit photos.
Development of own products and cooperation with manufacturers - Extasica Design
They are not on the market high quality large silicone dildos up to 150 Euros, neither human nor animal or fantasy. They are usually only made of PVC or vinyl, both materials being too hard for a large toy. We produce and sell these dildos at a price from 80 to 150 Euros from 2020. We participated in the development of an ergonomic vaginal pump and some leather accessories. You can find our products or products we participated in developing in the category Extasica Design.
Privacy - We do not know or betray our customer
We will delete all your data after 6 weeks from the order. Protecting your privacy (more in Privacy) is, as far as possible, one of our highest priorities.
Your review on Heureka, Google they help us a lot. OFWe deactivated requests for reviews of the sex shop at Heureka CZ from 2018 to 4/2022 in order to protect your privacy, as Heureka's conditions were not in accordance with GDPR. Other sex shops (95% sex shops in the Czech Republic) shared customer data with Heureka illegally and have many more ratings. The vast majority continue to do so illegally with pre-checked consent prohibited by law. They will also fail to inform the customer that Heureka CZ will receive highly sensitive customer data - your email, information about the content of the purchase. We will not divulge your privacy.
If we have information that the production of a certain product is less environmentally friendly, we do not include it or. we will remove it from sale. We supply most of the goods, except for vibrators, in the basic wholesale packaging - plastic bags. This saves on plastic cases or boxes and their transport. Shipping is calculated by volume. In addition to nature, it also saves you money. We use already used boxes for the transport of goods.
What we don't want to offer
Latex as goods with a relatively increased hygienic and health risk (absence of ventilation, skin reactions). Latex can be replaced by a more natural, comfortable and cheaper alternative (eg role playing, costumes, sex in different places, handcuffs, metal and leather clothing). We perceive chemical stimulants, magnifying creams and other chemical products as unnatural and harmful (Poppers etc.). We are not satisfied with the design of erotic clothing in any price category and we are withdrawing from the segment. We have also withdrawn from the condom sector, where the market is working well enough. Artificial vaginas and masturbators do not make sense to us (why: article here).
Why do sex shops mainly have erotic aids from China and not from the USA or Europe?
70% erotic goods are made in China and this trend is strengthening. Not only because of the price, but paradoxically contrary to the common idea as well because of quality. Extasica even gradually deviates from renowned Western goods, as it is often of lower quality than well-selected non-branded Chinese products. China has long played a major role in the erotic toy segment not only in terms of price, but also in terms of materials and technologies. For example Liquid silicone vibrators are manufactured only in China, although it is a technology purchased in 2019 from Germany (at least from the Chinese brand Mrimin). In the West, production simply doesn't pay off, and often so does the development. Renowned Western companies like PipeDream and Doc Johnson offer 10, 20 year old products until people stop buying it for that expensive money. Mostly also made in China. Most of the erotic toys in our country, as well as European distributors and sex shops, are therefore from China, including the world's best-selling branded German Satisfiers.
Many companies, including successful ones, often do not care about customer suggestions or implement them reluctantly. E.g. Heureka forces sellers to come up with nonsensical product names. Paypal is unable to top up an EU citizen's credit in dollars. We usually implement your suggestions for improvement within a few days and it will help everyone. If you give us a rating on Heureka, Google or similar reference portals, it will help us a lot.
