“Sex is a force for unique self-expression, and for connection with the rest of humanity.”

With Blue Artichoke Films, Jennifer Lyon Bell creates award-winning erotic fiction movies, documentaries, and virtual reality experiences that portray the riveting, intimate, and sometimes delightfully awkward side of sex.

Her work shows that sex is a giant, beautiful, strange, messy, fascinating, fun, and thrilling force of nature. She encourages people to feel confident enough to trust their own desires and wants everyone to know that there’s nothing wrong with sexual pleasure.

Having designed the first ever line of sex toy jewelry, Ti Chang as been a leading voice in bringing modern adult toys into the mainstream.

Her award-winning designs often provoke thoughtful conversations about pleasure and sexuality, and allow women to be able to enjoy their pleasure on their own terms.

The company also works on projects that create, instigate, and inspire conversation around pleasure. By funding these projects, Crave hopes to tackle some of most pressing forms of gender-based violence, including FGM and sex trafficking.

Together with Crave co-founder, Michael Topolovac, Ti took things to the next level when she started the CRAVE Foundation For Women in 2012. This foundation provides no-strings-attached grants to local and international individuals that help realize a world where pleasure is a universal human right.
