Who are you and how did you become involved in the adult toy industry?

My name is Hannah Holmes and I am but a virgin unto the adult industry! I have always been intrigued by the market and when the opportunity recently arose for me to head such a premium and coveted brand I simply couldn’t resist.

What is your position with LELO?

I am the General Manager of LELO Oceania.

Tell me a bit about your company

Founded in Stockholm in 2003, our goal was to transform the perception of what a sex toy could be.

Inspired by art, nature and the anatomy, LELO’s product designs revolutionised the industry with their unique blend of beauty, luxury and performance. 14 years on we are distributed in 51 countries, have won over 40 major design awards and sold a staggering 13 million products worldwide.

How do you feel your products impact people?

From my own personal experience, I think our products impact with seduction. From their shape to their fabrication to their packaging, LELO products first intrigue customers with their class and then delight them with their function.

I am also captivated by the journey our creative campaigns can take you on. My favourite Instagram campaign involves an erotic photography series set in natural surrounds. It’s just divine.

What’s a typical day in the life of Hannah Holmes at LELO?

Being only new to the business, my current course is one of complete brand immersion.

I am busily attending trade shows, meeting our stakeholders and travelling abroad to understand our global business.

I also had the privilege of visiting the factory where our products are made and was blown away by the meticulous detail that goes into their construction. All hand-made, the artistry is fascinating to witness and gave me such respect for the design and workmanship involved.

What are your favourite products and why?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s endorsement first compelled my love affair for the 24-karat gold INEZ for its unashamed luxury at $15,000. Our latest release however, the SONA Cruise, is undoubtedly my new darling.

It’s a clitoral stimulator that produces fluttering sonic pulsations that undulate at your preferred intensity for a really deep and sensual climax. For me, sexual pleasure is more about the journey than the destination, so I enjoy starting with the softest mode and gradually build. The SONA Cruise is also made from body safe silicone, is completely waterproof & is USB-rechargeable which also satisfies my practical requirements.

What are you most looking forward to in the near future with LELO?

I am really excited about bringing the market some newness! It’s been a long time coming and I think our customers will be delighted with both the design and functionality of the SONA Cruise. We also have other exciting products in the NPD pipeline for next year which I am eagerly waiting to release.
