VIP Interview With Shiri Zinn – Luxury Sex Toy Designer

Shiri Zinn is a high end designer who creates luxury sex toys and vibrators. The artistic creations are all made with the thought to challenge preconceived prejudice notions of sexuality and to place on display with glamour and luxury in mind, encouraging men and women to explore, play and discover a new world of sexuality.

Shiri Zinn designs with top-quality materials, including Swarovski crystals, English crystal glass, quartz, sterling silver, and feathers. Shiri crafts handmade creations like sex toys crafted from solid etched glass.

In her designs you will be able to find vibrating ice-creams and cupcakes that look delicious enough to eat. But they are built to send you into a world of pleasurable bliss which really goes to show that a person’s choice of ice-cream can allude to their sexual personality.

Limited quantities of her carefully crafted designs are a standout feature, like the Limited Edition Couture Collection. This means that if you buy one of Shiri’s specialised pieces, you may just be one of the select few people in the world to own one. Each piece bears a limited edition number stamp and the artist’s engraved signature.

What inspires you?

Nobody inspires me. I inspire myself and feel I am a pioneer type designer. I am inspired by nature, beautiful things and originality.

Why do you look at yourself as an artist more than a marketed brand?

I don’t market my brand as I have always got free press and something one calls publicity rather than pushing people to buy aggressively – or at all in fact. Celebrities have always found me without my help. When a designer is first in the world to do something new and different this occurs organically!

Why did you choose sex as a subject for your design?

In 1997, I pioneered designer sex toys due to poorly designed options lacking finesse.

Is sexuality fashionable?

Creative, high-end sex toys are recognised and depicted as art.

How would people include art within their sexuality?

Good question! They would include interesting arty pieces to bring a bit more variety, beauty, seduction and in fact more kink into their love lives, if they so choose, and it’s great for women who like lovely things in the area of seduction too… every little bit helps!

Whatever people choose as long as they are true to themselves and know they really do have CHOICE and it’s not just “same old, same old” that exists out there! They have imaginative pleasure options and need not just be discreet options either, because the kind/s of sex they may like may indeed be classy and INDESCREET!

What does food symbolise in art?

Not all my work is food related only 2 of my many pieces. However both those pieces are naughty sugar pieces. Why? From an artist / designer who does not even eat sugar?! lol. The answer is simple and it’s about FUN! We need to lighten up in the area of seduction and sometimes the cutest, most seductive looking treats can actually cause loads of laughter and intrigue psychologically in the bedroom…

How do people describe the experience of masturbating with ice-creams and cupcakes?

You get an entire range of reactions…. all hysterical! Makes the world a lighter, brighter place! The i-Scream in particular packs a PUNCH!

Can art be a fetish?

For sure! And food IS FETISH.

What does it feel like to create something beautiful?

What a charming question! It’s what makes me tick. I actually don’t believe one should buy anything unless one finds it beautiful. To create things for the sensual pleasures of touch and sight are an awesome experience. It gives so much pleasure just knowing I have thought about every curve, bend, diamante, reflection or detail of craftsmanship in a piece of mine. To design luxury leaves one feeling privileged! I shall leave “mundane design” to the birds. I certainly can’t design anything mundane, non-aspirational or non-controversial, lol!

Tell me about your product range and what new product ranges will we be looking forward to from Shiri Zinn?

My product range is completely varied. The ranges all look very different so if that confuses my brand so be it as I am a very dynamic designer and design based on inspiration it’s not “prescribed” or “set”. My straps are among the most luxury items in the world for their genre and all handmade with matching ceramic dildos adorned with real 8 carat gold leaf fired motifs.

The glass I use is exceptionally luxurious, heavier than typical industry glass, offering a weighty feel and unique, mold-free designs. A-listers and fine art collectors purchase limited editions of glass and crystal items. They are very usable and create amazing G-Spot orgasms. Some are affordable luxury pieces adorned with genuine Swarovski crystals. They all come in precious, beautiful boxes whatever price level of glass is chosen!

Any new products coming soon?

I also have a stunning new BDSM range that can be seen on the new website soon. It’s top secret right now and promises to pack a punch and to be more eccentric and visually stimulating than any other of my collections to date so watch this space as it’s breathtakingly functional!

Finally there are 3 beautiful designer vibrators: The i-Scream is USB operational with 1 year warrantee, very powerful and stunning to behold, complete with retro wire display stand and vintage Jazz playing music box. There is also the fancy Minx Designer Vibrator that possibly comes in the most luxurious packaging for any diva!

It’s also extremely powerful and comes with a plush, luxury, marabou feather tail adorned with real Swarovski crystals on its silver section. This is owned by several A-listers too! And of course, the silicone burlesque/retro styled Cupcake Vibe that is offered in The cutest baking tin. This pop art piece comes with batteries included and discreetly fits on your kitchen shelf. It has sold in the masses to Australia and still gets amazing press from Cosmo to Elle worldwide!

Thank you for your time Shiri and we look forward to seeing more of your incredible designs!
