Spartacus Enterprises: Something for Fetish Lovers Everywhere

CHATSWORTH. Calif. – Slated for July 13-15, this year’s AVN Novelty Expo (ANE) will once again feature many of the industry’s novelty item leaders.

Held once again at the Sheraton Universal and Hilton Los Angeles hotels at Universal City, Calif., ANE is sponsored by some of the biggest names in the industry, including Portland, Oregon-based Spartacus, a world leader in high quality bondage gear.

“At Spartacus we are very focused on building awareness of our brand name and perfecting our product line,” said Laurie Bergquist, senior vice president for Spartacus. “Sponsoring ANE is a ‘dream come true’ for us; this opportunity came at the right time for us to be able to participate at a whole new level.”

The Spartacus catalog now features more than 400 products, from nipple clamps and cock-and-ball gear to whips, paddles, and crops and a variety of gags, blindfolds, and restraints. Spartacus offers something for fetish lovers everywhere.

Spartacus believes that sexual adventure can be fun and healthy and encourages safe play, open dialogue and personal exploration. Their cock rings come in a variety of colors and materials and encourage play with more than just leather and rubber. With Crave, Pinkline, Redline and Comfort Line, they offer toys that are fun and approachable and they strive to keep their core fetish line strong, while at the same time branching out to the new, novice consumer.

“ANE provides the platform our company needs to properly display our broad product range,” Bergquist said. “We spoke with a few of our key customers in January and their sentiments were clear: They go to shows seeking innovative, fresh and new products from smaller and/or independent companies.”
