Ever wished you could add “vibrator factory designer” to your list of accomplishments? Now’s your chance…

Founder Ti hard at work at Crave headquarters...help surround her with inspiration!

Founder Ti hard at work at Crave headquarters…help surround her with inspiration!

It’s day 12 of our 14 days of Valentine’s Day, and we have one more contest for you. We’re putting the final touches on our recently renovated offices, and we need your help.

Picture this: 

On a busy street in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood in San Francisco, without a fancy facade or a shingle on the door, sits Crave headquarters: corporate offices, design studio, production facility, in-house machine shop, and all. Every morning when we get to work, we walk through the prototype lab, up the stairs, past the vibrator assembly station, and into our light-filled workspace to begin the day.

Along the way, we pass some empty walls that are screaming to be emblazoned with a few choice quotes: words and ideas that are inspiring, motivating, thought-provoking, or just plain fun.

Tell us what quote we should paint on our walls. We’re hard at work to bring you sex toys you love (and promote the idea that everyone should have the sex life they want). What quotes should inspire and inform that work?

Enter your suggestion in the comments on this post — include the quote itself and tell us who said it. Submit your entry by 9pm PST on 2/12/14. We’ll award a $160 gift card for the winning entry and a $75 gift card for one runner-up. 

And both winners will get bragging rights. How many other people can claim to have had a hand in the design of a vibrator factory? You’ll be one of a very select few.

    “Love demands expression. It will not stay still, stay silent, be good, be modest, be seen and not heard, no. It will break out in tongues of praise, the high note that smashes the glass and spills the liquid.”

    “She worked her toes into the sand, feeling the tiny delicious pain of the friction of tiny chips of silicon against the tender flesh between her toes. That’s life. It hurts, it’s dirty, and it feels very, very good.”

    "Any man could be trained to give a girl, what could be, the most technically flawless fucking of her life. But if he doesn’t know what to whisper in her ear when he is behind, or how to look at her when he is inside, then it doesn’t really matter." – Belle Âme

    Voices in Time
    John Keats
    1818 / London
    Sharing the Apple

    O blush not so! O blush not so!
    Or I shall think you knowing;
    And if you smile the blushing while,
    Then maidenheads are going.

    (Use this quote perhaps)
    ""There’s a blush for won’t, and a blush for shan’t,
    And a blush for having done it:
    There’s a blush for thought and a blush for naught,
    And a blush for just begun it.""

    O sigh not so! O sigh not so!
    For it sounds of Eve’s sweet pippin;
    By these loosen’d lips you have tasted the pips
    And fought in an amorous nipping.

    Will you play once more at nice-cut-core,
    For it only will last our youth out,
    And we have the prime of the kissing time,
    We have not one sweet tooth out.

    There’s a sigh for yes, and a sigh for no,
    And a sigh for “I can’t bear it!”—
    O what can be done, shall we stay or run?
    O cut the sweet apple and share it!

    Sex is an emotion in motion.”
    ― Mae West
    Good sex is like good bridge. If you don’t have a good partner, you’d better have a good hand.”
    ― Mae West
    “Sex should be friendly. Otherwise stick to mechanical toys; it’s more sanitary.”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein
    “A vibrator can last all night, too, vampire! – Denise”
    ― Jeaniene Frost, First Drop of Crimson
    “For women, the best aphrodisiacs are words. The G-spot is in the ears. He who looks for it below there is wasting his time.”
    ― Isabel Allende, Of Love and Shadows
    “Women fake orgasms and men fake finances.”
    ― Suze Orman
    “Someday every woman will have orgasms- like every family has color TV- and we can all get on with the business of life. ”
    ― Erica Jong, How to Save Your Own Life
    “Pussy is sweeter than honey and more valuable than money.”
    ― Mary B. Morrison
    "To have her here in bed with me, breathing on me, her hair in my mouth — I count that something of a miracle." Henry Miller
    "Sex lies at the root of life, and we can never learn to reverence life until we know how to understand sex." Havelock Ellis
    "Sex is as important as eating or drinking and we ought to allow the one appetite to be satisfied with as little restraint or false modesty as the other." Marquis de Sade
    The anthropologist Margaret Mead concluded in 1948, after observing seven different ethnic groups in the Pacific Islands, that different cultures made different forms of female sexual experience seem normal and desirable. The capacity for orgasm in women, she found, is a learned response, which a given culture can help or can fail to help its women to develop. Naomi Wolf
