Brendan - Dark Prince of Marketing
Brendan has been in Stockroom’s Marketing Department for over 3 years. He loves predicament bondage and role playing. He also loves enforcing discipline for bad word play.
I’m not all that keen on using leather gear, so it’s nice to have some animal-friendly options. I love the feel and functionality of these simple rubber cuffs. Instead of a buckle, these cuffs secure on the wrists with locks which make for extra secure bondage scenarios and not only do they clean easily and work great with all kinds of equipment, but they’re also made of nice quality, thick rubber which makes them super sturdy!
I love this whip for variety of reasons but I especially like that it’s perfectly versatile, as well as flexible. It’s a dressage whip, so it’s ideal for pony play, but it also packs a wallop if you use it as a cane, which makes it one of my favorite implements to use for direction OR correctional needs! The loop on the handle also provides a really good grip during sessions and also makes it easy to hang for storage
This latex zip-up full face hoodie is probably one of the most unique latex items I’ve seen in a while. The jacket pairs perfectly with the latex track pants and together, this ensemble is the thing we carry that I most lust after. I love the playfulness and the menace. I’m definitely grabbing this as soon as I can!
Lianne - Lusty Liaison of Purchasing
Here for the past 5+ years, Lianne has an eye for soft and girly beginner products. As the youngest member of the company she enjoys painless, easy to use, and easy to clean items.
This toy is simply fantastic and I just love that it comes in pink! The squeeze-bulb control for speed and intensity, along with the pattern replay function, make this waterproof wonder my new favorite plaything! I especially like its ergonomic shape, soft silicone feel and, as if that weren’t enough, it’s fully rechargeable and can be used for 5 hours on a single charge!
I personally like that these cuffs are not intimidating and are perfect for beginners! The neoprene lining makes them super comfortable to wear. The adjustable Velcro straps also make them very easy to use and switch between ankles or wrists but best of all, you can’t beat that you can throw these in the washer when you’re done playing.
This 3-in-1 toy is a must have and is perfect if you’re looking for a combination of G-spot, clitoral and light anal stimulation! I just love the compact design and its easy to use remote control, which is perfect when trying to be discreet. It’s also very easy to clean and is Phthalate-free!
Donovan - Cunning Clerk of Retail Sales
As a retail sales associate Donovan enjoys working directly with customers, and helping them connect to the local scene. “There is nothing quite like having gear in your hands and feeling the quality for yourself”. He is quite fond of impact toys, electrosex, and hoods. Here are some of his recent favorites.
This thing is a go to item! The straps quickly transform any bed into a bondage play station, no worries about bed posts or tying off to bed frames, just slip it between the mattress and box springs and your ready to go. The hardware is quick and solid, and best of all the thing slips into a suitcase and is great for hotels and vacations.
Let the sparks fly! The crackle and anticipation of the jolt of electricity makes your senses come alive. Add a Power Tripper, and you have an electric touch, great for use with a Wartenberg Pinwheel, mylar flogger, or any metallic object such as a normal fork. It’s like being a super villain.
This whip is a great tool to have on hand- it has a nice weight to it that makes swings and slaps easy, but the shape let’s you give a hit without leaving too many marks or lingering stings for those that aren’t into a high level of pain. It also has an attached loop on the end that makes it easy to hang and store when you’re done playing!
German - Merciless Master of Marketing
A 7 year veteran of the company, as well as Stockroom’s Marketing & Customer Service Manager, German has a broad knowledge of the range of gear and toys that appeal to fetish & kink enthusiasts.
Definitely some of the nicest hemp rope I have come across. It’s soft to the touch (even for hemp rope!) and comes in multiple widths and colors, allowing you to get creative with your rope bondage, from CBT to suspension, to everything in between, this rope is versatile and of the highest quality around. Personally, I love the look of the look of the natural color, which works well with most skin tones!
These are probably the most stylish set of fully functional metal wrist cuffs we carry! I especially like the hex key closure mechanism which is fast, easy to use, fully secure and requires zero locks. The high polished look is even better in person! Complete the set with the matching ankle cuffs for an extra special slave aesthetic visual.
This is one pretty cool toy accessory! Incorporating it into a rope bondage scene definitely makes for a uniquely pleasurable experience on both ends. One of the great things is the ability to use any Vac-U-Lock accessory such as the Vac-U-Lock Thin Natural Dong or the Vac-U-Lock Pink Jelly Probe
Eddie - Rigorous Retail Overseer
Aside from being Stockroom’s retail store manager for the past 4 years, Eddie is also a prolific player in the LA leather community, as well as a former title holder. He has been a member of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for the past 11 years and goes by the name of ‘Sister Erotica Psychotica, the Avant Guardian of the Nasty Habit’
We make two versions of this hot piece of fetish wear. I love both, but prefer the one with the cockhole and pocket for extra quick and easy access! The apron looks great with pretty much any ensemble from a full fetish outfit to a simple jeans and t-shirt look, but I’m a pretty big fan of the way it looks with absolutely nothing else but a pair of boots!
Sensory deprivation can be super hot. Cut off one sense and the rest are heightened. That’s one of the many reasons I love this hood. It covers everything but your mouth for easy-access and lots of possibilities and the soft, stretchy material actually makes it really comfortable to wear.
This sling is simply amazing and perfect for finding lots of fun positions and experimenting with angles. I like the fact that it’s made of a flexible and super easy-to-clean material, which means you don’t have to worry about making a mess while having fun- it just wipes clean and rolls up for easy storage when you’re done! The D-rings points also make it easy for you to attach chains and hook it up to a sling stand, bed frame or to a ceiling system if you’re a heavy player!
Alyssa - Dominating Diva of Purchasing
Although Alyssa, a 6+ year veteran of Stockroom, currently works in Purchasing, her earlier work in the latex department helped in the beginnings of her lifelong love for latex, which she wears as often as possible. She’s a fan of high-quality lifestyle toys and is hands-on in the choosing of many of the products Stockroom sells today!
I love latex, and I love this combination of formal and fetish attire! These gloves fit every evening I can imagine, whether it’s a fancy party or a medical fetish scene! They give you the option to dress up for public, while still indulging in your kinky ways.
I really enjoy this fantastic piece of gear because it looks like something out of an early 20th century medical scene, which makes it perfect for playing evil doctor or just menacing your sub with! The attractive stainless steel design makes it one of my favorite toys in my medical collection. Not only do I love using it on others, but it also looks great just sitting on my display shelf, in a stylish and threatening manner.
I consider this to be one of those really special pieces equipment that is fully functional and will keep any sub in line, even when used as a simple threat! The medieval steel design is really cool looking and is unlike any other chastity device I have come across. I especially like that it can be locked in place and has a prominent stem that makes sitting nearly impossible, which tells you it’s really made for extremes- and is one of the reasons I absolutely love this piece!
