About Tom Of Finland

Touko Valio Laaksonen, a Finnish artist known for his stylized highly masculinized homoerotic fetish art, and better known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland produced over 3500 illustrations in his 71 years of life, mostly all of them featuring men wearing tight clothing, fetish gear or little to no clothing at all with exaggerated sexual features.

He has been called the “most influential creator of gay pornographic images” by cultural historian Joseph W. Slade and has had a big impact on gay culture throughout the 20th century and continues to, to this day with the Tom of Finland Foundation and his artwork still inspiring, turning on, reassuring and unifying its viewers.

“Tom of Finland is one of the five most influential artists of the twentieth century. As an artist he was superb, as an influence he was transcendent.”- Harvey S. Shipley Mille

Obviously the Tom of Finland series has a lot to live up to, luckily XR brands have created some wonderful and quality items in their Tom of Finland range including collars, leads, restraints, clamps, insertables and more.

Tom Of Finland Leash Packaging

The Tom of Finland Leash comes in wonderful packaging featuring Touko Valio Laaksonen’s artwork on the box that is metallic and reflective in places, it is so nice you may have the urge to preserve the packing itself like I considered doing but to my delight I discovered that inside as a bonus each product in the Tom of Finland range includes a collectable, exclusive art print with a portion of proceeds going to the Tom of Finland Foundation, dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting erotic art.

Now for what’s inside the box! The leash is a lovely gun metal grey colour of the chain is beautiful and different to other leashes I’ve seen out there that tend to just come in either black or silver metal, I adore this colour and it really set this leash apart looking incredibly stylish with the black neoprene hand strap that is soft yet sturdily made, there is a silver metal look plastic plate on the handle embossed with the Tom of Finland logo.

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that resists degradation more than natural or other synthetic rubbers and is easy to clean if the need arises just use a warm wet cloth to wipe down the surface of the leash and its handle with water only as neoprene is sensitive to household chemicals and urine, so if golden showers are your thing be careful to not be wearing any of the neoprene range when participating in those activities. Neoprene is also vegan-friendly making the entire Tom of Finland matching collar, leash, ankle and wrist cuff set the perfect choice for those who wish to avoid purchasing or using animal products or if you simply do not like leather or silicone it is a good alternative.

The Tom of Finland gun metal chain leash is 42 inches (106.68cm) in total length, the chain without handle being 30 inches (76.2cm) this is a good length in my opinion for a leash intended for human use, when using my leash I’ve never thought it was too long which can be a pain having excess chain in the way or too short which can cause unwanted tugging on the person who has it attached to their collar being led around.

My Final Thoughts

This leash is an excellent addition to anyone into or considering collar and leash play, stylish, high quality and with a rich history behind it, you will feel confident and in charge with its bold dark metallic grey glinting as you show off your submissive or as you’re being shown off. Using the Tom Of Finland Leash is an incredible way to introduce dominance and submission into your sexual lifestyle.

This is a VIP interview with Lynda Mort the Director of Business Development for XR Brands with the Adultsmart Blog.

Tell me about yourself?

My name is Lynda Mort, I am the Director of Business Development for XR Brands. I have been with XR Brands for two and a half years.

What is the story behind the inspiration, creation and development of your company and product range?

XR Brands is located in Huntington Beach, CA. Our company was created to cater to those who have interest in the fetish lifestyle.  We offer a wide variety of fetish/BDSM/niche products. We understand that everyone has their own kink, and we want to show them that we have a product that fits their lifestyle. Our goal is to encourage our users to find their Kink!

What are your favourite accomplishments of all time working for XR Brands?

I am only as good as the team that works with me, and one of the things that we are most proud of is how far the brand has come in such a short time. Over the last two years we have grown so much, it is amazing to see our brands being offered all over the world! We have spent so much time choosing fantastic partners who believe in our brand, our business and our team. Our partners have been the key to our success, and we are so happy to be working with a network of successful distributors who want to grow with us. The time, effort and sacrifices that our team has made over the last few years is admirable and we pride ourselves on the incredible staff we have working for us.

What are your favourite quote’s that inspire you?

Recently a mentor of mine sent me this, I loved it so much that I printed it out and put it on my desk!

“Even if you go for it and it doesn’t work out, you still win. You still had the guts enough to head straight into something that frightened you. That type of bravery will take you places.”

The one quote that inspires me daily comes from one of the women I look up to, Sophia Amoruso author of #GirlBoss,

“It is she who listens to the rest of the world who fails, and it is she who has enough confidence to define success and failure for herself who succeeds.”

These inspire me because they show you that you should not fear failure, but use it as a tool to learn and to grow. In my opinion, you cannot learn without failure.

Where are your products manufactured?

Our products are manufactured all over the world. We choose the location we make our products based on the materials we are using. We manufacture in regions that specialize in the products they are making. Because we use so many different types of materials we want them to be made where they originate from.

What does your company value the most?

Hard work! Our motto is PLAY HARD and we encourage our team to work hard and play hard! The company values each and every employee and the sacrifices they make to take XR Brands to the next level.

What is the product development process like?

XR develops products following market trends and customer feedback. We take customer feedback very seriously and we read reviews on our products religiously. We have developed and improved many products based on customer feedback. Our customers are the heart of our company and we value their suggestions. Once we have an idea, we roundtable and brainstorm the idea. It then goes into the prototype stage, and testing. When we are satisfied with the results, it goes to the buying team, then art and production. It’s a pretty fun process and I would have to say that we have the best jobs in the world!

What are your favourite memories from working with XR Brands?

Honestly, I have too many to count! I do work with some incredible people and have some of the best customers in the world! I would say that one of my favorite memories would have to be the XR Brands Dungeon opening party. It stands out as my favorite because the entire XR family was there, as well as our wonderful partners and customers and we all just had an amazing time. We did a live whipping and caning with a master Dom, and it was the first time I had ever witnessed something like that. It was truly incredible!

What are XR Brands best sellers?

Our best sellers vary as they span across multiple categories. We have items that range from Cock and Ball Holsters to Lube Launchers to Electrode Penis Pads. The reason for this is due to the wide variety of kinks that people are into. We have products that cater to so many different lifestyles. Because we are known for our fetish and BDSM products, those categories do best for us.

What products would you recommend?

I would recommend our new SHEGASM forced clitoral stimulator. Ergonomically designed for easy use, Shegasm’s unique suction sensation is like nothing else you have experienced. Simply turn on, place the silicone tip opening over your clitoris, and feel its amazing suction. The easy to use dial lets you increase the vibration power for added stimulation. Since Shegasm is wireless and charges via USB cord, you can take this amazing pleasure vibe anywhere you go.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Don’t be intimated by our products. We offer something for everybody and we encourage people to explore themselves alone and with their partner. It’s important that we understand ourselves and our bodies. Don’t be ashamed to ask for what you want sexually.

Master Series Packaging

Maser Series ‘Master your Domain’ the line of BDSM and fetish toys and equipment from XR Brands is one of my favourite fetish toy and equipment lines I’ve found to date. Firstly I’m a sucker for packaging and the design alone of the Master Series packaging was enough to immediately draw my eye.

​The Lil Devil sits in a box with clear plastic packaging, as is the same for the rest of the Master Series range so you can fully see the item you’re purchasing not just a photo, to me this increases my chance of buying a product so I’m not disappointed when I get home and unbox my item only to find the size, colour or something else didn’t match the image I saw on the packaging. The Master Series logo and style, in general, is sleek and reminiscent of cool metal, which is all the better for getting me in the mood for a kink session.

Master Series Lil Devil Mini Sensation Wheel

The Master Series Lil Devil mini sensation wheel itself is small, the handle is easily held in your thumb and finger having an indented surface for your thumb to sit perfectly and to aid your grip as it is such a mini size wheel. At 3.5 inches long (8.89cm) and 1 inch (254cm) in diameter, the Lil Devil mini sensation wheel is perfect to take with you to kink events or clubs it fits in even a small handbag or purse without issue or even your pocket, just take it out and discreetly run it along your partners arms or legs for some simple and mild public play.

The Lil Devil mini sensation wheel is on the sharp side! Even sharper that some of the metal ones I own, this little guy definitely packs a punch. The Lil Devil is made from ABS plastic and comes in a glossy black, the ABS plastic is easy to clean just wash it with hot soapy water and then spray with a toy cleaner, leave for a minute and then rinse off, easy as!

What Is A Wartenberg Wheel?

Wartenberg wheels or sometimes more commonly known as Pinwheels are very popular in sensation play, originally (as with many items used in kink) the Wartenberg wheel was invented to test a patients nerve reaction to the wheel being run across their body, this is perfect for sensation play for extreme and more gentle kinksters alike, you can gently run the wheel across your partners skin for a mild pricking sensation or push down hard for something more painful, common places to use the wheel are the shaft of a penis or the bottoms of feet to really stimulate your partners nerves. They are often used by people who gain pleasure from pain. I wonder if Professor Robert Wartenberg foresaw this use of his invention?

I Love The Master Series Lil Devil Mini

I love my Lil Devil mini sensation wheel, it lives in my hand bag (along with a pair of nipple clamps) so I’m always prepared for some kink on the go, sharp and to the point, it is a great little addition to any kinksters and sadists artillery. Be sure to stop by our retail sex toy stores to browse the XR Brands Master Series sex toy range and pick up your very own Lil Devil!
