A Safe-to-Browse Sex Site??

You may notice as you browse the site that some images are pixelated until you mouse over them. It’s a sex site, right? Why the heck would we do that? The short answer is shame. Not mine, not yours, but the bigger concept of shame and taboo around sexual goods.

As a 17-year buyer in the industry, I’ve seen all manner of ... well, I don’t think ‘atrocities’ is too strong a term (facepalm). I know what it is to be idly browsing and to come across the sex toy equivalent of roadkill. Something that makes me instinctively want to recoil and slam my laptop closed in horror. The thing is, everyone has a different tolerance. Some folks really love nudity and realistic toys, and some do not. Like, really do not. My working theory is that having nudity on the site can trigger in some an autonomic response that leaves them feeling unsafe or ashamed. It's not our fault, it's part of the fabric of the culture we live in.

I believe that access to sex goods should not be limited to us sex geeks. One of the reasons I started Mojo was to make it as accessible as possible, and I really want to welcome folks that I feel are not being seen by other businesses. These include trans folx, people with disabilities and mobility issues, professionals like doctors and occupational therapists working with clients, and how about people with religious convictions? Everybody deserves hot sex!


In the end, it doesn’t matter to me why folks don’t like to see nudity or body parts. What matters to me is that Mojo is a place that’s comfortable for everyone to shop.  I figured it was worth the extra click.  What do you think? I’d love to hear your feedback.
