ABOUT JJ

Hello, My name is J.J. and I am a man of many talents. Being a business owner, you have to wear many hats. My philosophy in life is this: Know a little bit about everything and always remember that the amount of knowledge you can acquire is endless. I believe that anything is possible as long as you have patience and dedication. It may take you a long time to acquire the knowledge you need, but you can accomplish anything with the right attitude and determination.

Julia Besharam

Hello friends and fans, My name is Julia

I am customer service supervisor for IMbesharam.com in India.

My motto is - always be on the top!

From early childhood, I have always been distinguished by the fact that I could achieve all my goals. I studied very well and in my 15 years, I became a student of the year! To write 3 research papers at once - it's about me.

Further, my aims changed, I associated “The Top” with sports. The victories on climbing competitions and championships, holding climbing activities – started to me to be the main goals in life! At those time the top for me – became the highest mountain in Europe - Elbrus. But also I believe that  14 eight thousand's are still waiting for me;).

It was the hard school of life during the military conflict in my region, but it made me stronger and more confident in the fact that each new day we can open a new world and always move  to the top - to the dream!

How It Began

It began over a cup of coffee and a conversation about how us Indians have aced every aspects of life, science, medicine, business, politics and spiritual beliefs and ancient knowhow in health and wellbeing..but still have no real access to experience a lifestyle that we desire in our relationships and private moments. The coffee got cold but the idea caught steam and right that weekend we flew in to California and met with another friend who had great experience in online business structuring. The idea became a concept, the concept became a brand, the brand became a business and the business now needed a face. The following week, we  met with Sunny Leone, contracted her to be the face of the brand and went back to the airport realising we have planted the seed of Besharam. After over 12 months of research, 5 trips to India, meeting with attorneys and consultants, getting reintroduced to our culture and lifestyle, enjoying dosa's in the morning at Juhu and lunch in South Bombay & dinner in Ghatkopar, we relived our childhood and at the same time build the structure of imbesharam.com brick by brick.

What Now 

Rome wasn't built in a day, neither would your trust be. So now we start our day by coming to work, have our coffee, talk to our team, listen to you-our customers and run the business in the most systematic, organized and ethical manner, while keeping an eye on the prize. Your trust and faith, for many many years to come.

In the Western world, the movie based on the Fifty Shades of Grey book trilogy is releasing this week, ahead of Valentine’s Day. In India, even as extreme right-wingers threaten to summarily marry off couples out on dates tomorrow, and as the movie awaits a censorship certificate, web sites in the country selling sexual health and/entertainment products have added BDSM (bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism) merchandise to their list of wares, hoping that the book, having attained something of a cult status, will influence sales. Make way red roses, jewellery and chocolate, for it’s with edible body paint, handcuffs and whips that romantic India can choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day.ThatsPersonal.com, an adult online shopping site, has the exclusive rights to sell the Fifty Shadesofficial movie merchandise in India. Samir Saraiya, a former executive at Microsoft who founded this venture in 2013, says this category is going to be a ₹10,000-crore business in India in five years’ time. Saraiya’s decision to set up a business in this field of e-commerce stemmed from his own hesitation to buy contraceptives at stores in person, and realising that shopping online could give buyers the anonymity they wished for.

Talking about condoms and other sex related items such as contraceptive pills, lubes or copper-T, has never been a good idea in a conservative society like ours. Though reports might be showing better education rates, but we still lag far behind the European or American societies whenever the topic of ‘Sex’ crops up. And, the same was the case with the sexual wellness products industry which was nowhere near the markets in the developed nations.But, in a bid to cash in the potential of this industry, few marketplaces like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, Healthkart and many others who are specifically dealing in this category including IMbesharam, thatspersonal, Kaamastra, Shykart, Ohmysecrets among others are there who have introduced a wide range of products including condoms, lubricants, edible lingerie and Sex toys ( You read it right! SEX TOYS! ) in India. Interestingly, the experiment worked out and the business grew very well to a staggering INR 1500Cr in a very short period of time. All was going good until now, as these companies have now come under the scanner of the government. After an e-mail received by the Delhi Police from one Harit Kumar about websites “openly promoting and selling objectionable products illegally and showing objectionable...READ MORE

Exactly an year back Flipkart started offering Sexual Wellness products on its platform to the users. However, barely 12 months after the launch, they have decided to remove all products listed under Sexual wellness category, except condoms, which are still available.In a letter sent to all their sellers, Flipkart has said, “Current listings under this category will not be visible to customers with immediate effect” . So if you search for any items categorized under Sexual Wellness, you will not be able to see it on Flipkart anymore.Surprisingly, other categories like “Lubricants” or “pleasure devices”are still shown, but upon clicking them, you will be welcomed with the message “NO MATCHING PRODUCTS AVAILABLE.”Sexual Wellness products is a Rs. 1000 crore market and it is growing at a healthy rate, however, Flipkart looks to have taken this as a precautionary step after police received an e-mail complaint about four ecommerce sites, including Flipkart. The complaint stated that these sites were violating the law by “openly promoting and selling objectionable products illegally and showing objectionable content on their websites”.While there is no report of Police taking any action on the complaint, Flipkart seems to have...READ MORE

The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie might not have been released in India, but ‘IMbesharam.com’ of Besharam Adult Store definitely has a collection of fifty shades of grey.Sexuality and sexual awareness isn’t new to India. It is the land of Kamasutra and erotic art and architecture. Yet, there is an unease and taboo associated with anything related to sexuality. Globally, sexual wellness is a highly lucrative market; the revenues in the US are estimated to grow to USD 52 billion by 2020. Risque or risky legality in business? Thanks to the Internet economy, customers can now take refuge in the cloak of anonymity. However, considering the ambiguous legalities associated, many big e-commerce sites like Flipkart have removed their sexual wellness category. This was done after police received an email complaint about Flipkart, along with four other sites.Does this mean that this business is getting riskier? The legalities associated with the buying and selling of these products is still questionable due to legal ambiguity.  According to Dhruv of Team Sexpiration, India still has a long way to go. “Currently there is no clarity,” he says, as the definition of obscenity in Indian law is rather vague.Section 294 of...READ MORE

A year ago every other e-commerce player wanted a piece of the pie. One of the hottest categories to strike the virtual retail market, sexual wellness products, appears to have lost its allure. While Flipkart and Snapdeal have discontinued it, some niche players like Ohmysecrets.com have shut shop.Many others are tweaking their business of selling erotic paraphernalia, or pushing operations out of India so as to circumvent the legal issues that have cloaked the market.The sexual wellness category, which covers everything from condoms and lubricants to sex toys and erotic inner wear, is at a nascent stage in India. Currently at Rs 2,000 crore, the market is slated to cross Rs 20,000 crore by 2020, since consumers find it convenient to discreetly buy such products online.However, over the past two years, several niche online players like Thatspersonal.com, shycart, privatelyurs.com and privypleasures, among others, have been desperately trying to resolve issues that have plagued their business. Though Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal had also latched on to the sexual wellness category, and had several products on offer, a series of raids by the Food and Drug Administration and legal suits for selling obscene products have forced the e-commerce majors to change their...READ MORE

Sexual wellness market in India is pegged to be anywhere between Rs 1,200 crore and 1,500 crore. But in India where the law on obscenity is unclear, this is a risky business  The net savvy culture that has seeped into the country over the years has ensured that people queue up for the release of everything from latest mobiles to clothes and gadgets. The latest entrant to this trend is the sexual wellness category for Indian consumers.  Sexual wellness is a wide net and can cover everything from female hygiene and care, lightening and tightening creams, energy shots and male enhancement creams and sprays, pregnancy tests and intimate washes, condoms and lubes, toys (that are not obscene looking and can pass as shoulder/feet massager). Market for sexual wellness products has evolved and though there is no verified research for this but based on projections and selling trends, it can be estimated to be anywhere between Rs 1,200 and 1,500 crore.  One of the players in this category that is making the mark is IMBesharam.com, which sells vast range of adult products, fragrances, lingerie and gels.

Its inventory sold out in the first month itself. "We didn't have any products left to sell. That's when we realised the huge demand," said Saraiya, who seeks to distinguish ThatsPersonal brand as a sexual wellness site in contrast with ImBesharam that's more in the adult entertainment category. Saraiya found support from his wife and in-laws for the venture, even as his mother remained reluctant. "It's a huge problem Indian men face. To even buy a condom, we try and visit a chemist who is distant from our house," said Saraiya, 43. Bindra said he backed the venture because he believed Saraiya could pull it off. "I have known Samir for the past several years and I knew he had the chutzpah to pull this off successfully," said Bindra, also ex-CEO of Getitbazaar.com. "His idea was solving a genuine customer purchase issue." The site is planning to raise another $5 million from venture capital firms and says it's in talks with two venture capital firms. Bachelorette and bachelor party kits have become a hit, with even customers from small towns ordering the products.

Talking about sex has been a taboo in conservative India. But, moving on with the changing world, India's scenario has changed too. Many things that found no mentioned years before are now slowly filtering into common casual conversation among people. Also the society has gradually come to accept many things that were once taboo as common place now. Likewise, sexual wellness products also have been a taboo in India since many years and so here comes IMBesharam to cater to the niche market target.  Taking a bold step, the company has launched sexual wellness products, as an innovative online solution for many. Customers can now place the order the products online and not have to let anybody encroach their comfort levels or privacy zones. “There are a few challenges that we face when doing business in Indian market, but the one that is the root of most problem is: Challenges due to perception.

Ever been to India with your girlfriend and tried to kiss her in public? If you have, you probably received a dozen dirty stares. Or a prying cop may have taken you to the nearest police station, to extract some money.Worst still, you might have received a lecture on public decency or been asked to declare your girlfriend as your ‘sister’ by right wing political activists. During anti-valentine drives the activists force girlfriends to tie rakhi (a sacred thread) to their boyfriends and declare them as ‘brothers’ in front of the local community.Even though public displays of affection in India are frowned upon, ecommerce startups are leaving no stone unturned to sell you that sexy lingerie, or book you a hotel room so you can get intimate in private.Over 65 percent of India’s population (which totals about 930 million) is under 35 years of age. Valentine’s Day is now a major crowd puller for ecommerce startups to attract new users.

Vibrating duckling. Lucky ball masturbator. Amorino – a rabbit with a twist. Pleasure tunnel. Lovers’ candy bra. S&M intro kit. Blindfold & handcuffs set. Orgy love dice. No, I am not picking them out of Fifty Shades of Grey nor making them up for kicks. They are just a few of the many sex toys that have caught the fancy of adventurous Indians discovering the joys of ecommerce – where e stands for erotic.A big chunk of Indian society still likes to pretend sex doesn’t exist but that hasn’t yet stopped anyone from doing it for procreation, obligation, recreation, or even revenge. Lately, the recreational element of this basic human instinct has got a bit of a push with intrepid entrepreneurs launching estores for sex toys and wellness products that promise better sex.The sexual wellness market in India is expected to grow at an average rate of 34.8 percent per year from 2014 to 2019.Are you wondering if “intrepid” is a touch of overkill? Well, no.

Typing out Thatspersonal.com on your computer screen while at work will most probably lead you to a page that reads 'Access denied'. An online marketplace for adult pleasure and sexual wellness products is not considered healthy viewing, even for purely work reasons — a reflection of what some of these startups experience when they knock on investors' doors: no love at all. Experts believe that a notion of cultural taboo along with legal concerns come in the way of adult products portals such as Thatspersonal.com, ImBesharam and ItsPleazure from raising funds from institutional investors, despite dynamics such as 100 per cent year-on-year growth and operating margins of over 30 per cent. "I think it is unfortunate. But I think that the reason why large institutional investors balk at the space is due to moral and cultural issues of the taboo factor around the space and grey areas around legal compliance," said Jaspreet Bindra, senior V-P at M&M and an angel investor in Thatspersonal. com, which sells products for adult pleasure in around 50 cities in India. The legal concern is that there is no specific provision of law that addresses the use or import of adult products. "It is all...READ MORE

Women in India are starting to become more familiar with sex products, and female entrepreneurs are leading the way for women’s pleasure. “India is going through a sexual revolution." Women in India are beginning to take more control of their sex lives with the growing trend of sex products targeting them. The appearance of women in the sex toy industry especially in India, is changing societal views on women’s sex products. Indian women who previously would be shunned for such behaviour, are today getting more aware of the uses of sex products, for their own pleasure or in a relationship. As the acceptance is increasing so is the trend of more women entrepreneurs in the country aiming...READ MORE

There’s one aspect that often gets pushed under the bed in all the talk about a digital society. How it will impact sex. The tech boom, as we found is leading to a lot of boom, boom.

Two weeks ago, on a Sunday evening, 30 guests gathered at an undisclosed location in Bandra for a two-hour session discussing a taboo topic — kink. Hosted by Gaysi, the introductory session, aptly titled K Se Kink, featured a panel of speakers and a heady mix of audience — inquisitive souls keen to know more about the subject and 'players' who've been actively following kink lifestyle for over a decade. Among the curious lot was the 21-year-old Anushka Jadhav, who runs the gender-education initiative, No Country For Women. She recounts, "The session also showcased whips, handcuffs and feather ticklers [and a few other products I don't know the names of] provided by IMBesharam (event partners). Most guests knew how to use them. All agreed that EL James' Fifty Shades Of Grey is problematic. The session made me comfortable with the idea of kink and opened me up to the possibility of pushing my boundaries as long as it was consensual." And that was the intent, explains Priya Gangwani of Gaysi Family, the brain behind the session. This isn't the first such session. In May, a few members of the Kinky Collective (a Delhi-based group, with a city presence, that aims...READ MORE

Sreemoyee Piu Kundu on how online shopping has opened up a world of sex and erotica products to Indian women On her 40th birthday, Smita Wadhawan, a marketing professional and a single mother, who confesses to being ‘sexless’ for over a decade and occasionally jokes about becoming ‘revirginised’, sought to break the jinx of this ‘menopause’ by pampering herself with a rabbit vibrator—known to offer dual stimulation, to both the G-spot and the clitoris, something she’d read about in magazines like Cosmopolitan and seen in her favorite soap, Sex In The City. Initially too embarrassed to ask her colleagues exactly how to go about acquiring one, she was fina­lly encouraged by a newly marr­ied junior colleague to check out sex toys being sold online. “Lata had a naughty hen party where she was gifted a kinky hamper with eve­rything from handcuffs, arousal oils, erotic lingerie, adult games, delay gels and edible body paints by her girlfrie­nds. She got hooked to these products and regularly buys them now. In fact, she also bragged how, on their first wedding anniversary, her husband had given...READ MORE

While the metros of Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore top the list of buyers across e-commerce platforms that sell adult products, the “business of pleasure” is gaining popularity in smaller cities such as Ahmedabad, Chennai, Faridabad, Pune, Roorkee and Hyderabad. (IMBesharam)   Indians may be perceived as shy about their sex lives, but their demand for sex toys and aides, a nascent and as yet clandestine industry in the country, is going up by leaps and bounds. While the metros of Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore top the list of buyers across e-commerce platforms that sell adult products, the “business of pleasure” is gaining popularity in smaller cities such as Ahmedabad, Chennai, Faridabad, Pune, Roorkee and Hyderabad. The share of orders from non-metro big cities and small towns is going up, the vendors say. While across-the-board average is not forthcoming as it is a fragmented industry, websites say that for some products demand from small towns is 3 times the demand from metros.

The sexual wellness industry in India is estimated to be at Rs 2500 crores, with several sites selling adult products tapping into a market which promises ‘exponential’ potential.  There are vibrators and dildos, masturbators and vibrating rings, massage oils and soft bondage products, condoms and lubricants, edible lingerie and personal care and hygiene goods, among the plethora of products that can be bought online from these adult e-stores. Driving the surge in demand are consumers from across the social spectrum. While metro cities continue to dominate the scene, it is the smaller towns and cities in India that buy adult products like never before.  Speaking to The News Minute, Samir Saraiya, CEO of ThatsPersonal.com, described as ‘India’s first personal products destination’, says that in the first and second year of their operations, i.e. in 2013-14, most of their business was generated from Tier-I cities. 2015 however saw Tier-II & III cities quickly catching up. A research conducted by the site last year found that Tier-II cities like Jaipur, Surat, Lucknow, Coimbatore and Chandigarh witnessed the fastest growth, while Tier-III cities like Kohima, Davangere, Hisar, Khorda and Bhatinda have the biggest basket size.  “While the major cities make more frequent orders, Tier-II &...READ MORE

When was the last time any of you went shopping for a lingerie or you had to pick up condom at a medical store, and you found yourself in a slightly uncomfortable conversation/zone? See a quick video that shows the dilemma of a girl out to shop for a bra -  Being the culture that gave the world, the KamaSutra, we as a nation never got the right outlet to express our sexual desires or the source to procure such ideas, products and accessories to experiment the same. Being creatures of curiosity, desire and always on search for better levels of happiness and satisfaction, the pursuit was always there. Hence there existed the gap between what we want or not knowing what we want and what is available/accessible to us.  Now with major advances in technology, and R&D on consumer demand and requirements, the shape, packaging and appearance of such products has changed and now are readily available across global markets. So even though the means to such experiences are readily available, the access and availability has been the equally bigger challenge so far. Enter...READ MORE

The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie might not have been released in India, but ‘IMbesharam.com’ of Besharam Adult Store definitely has a collection of fifty shades of grey. Sexuality and sexual awareness isn’t new to India. It is the land of Kamasutra and erotic art and architecture. Yet, there is an unease and taboo associated with anything related to sexuality. Globally, sexual wellness is a highly lucrative market; the revenues in the US are estimated to grow to USD 52 billion by 2020. Changing behaviour patterns However, with everything online today, trends and behaviours are changing. Raj Armani from Imbesharam shares his findings and says, “When we went live, we saw 70/30 male: female ratio in traffic, but sales were 87/13 from the same visitors. Now, we see 64/36 ratio of traffic, and the sales have risen from women shoppers to 72/38, which we consider a major achievement.” The effect of the Fifty Shades of Grey Most of these sexual wellness and entertainment trends show there has been increasing interest in BDSM and role play among Indian customers.

A few months ago, the corporate office of a Mumbai-based adult online shopping company received a strange request from the female customer in Delhi: 120 tubes of chocolate flavoured edible body paints. The caller wanted to gift it as a return gift to young couples at the party which she and her husband were throwing. Unprepared for such a huge order for a single flavour, the company appeased her by offering an assortment of different flavours.  SHADES OF FUN The company, on its part, wins customer trust by ensuring that the products are packaged in tamperproof bags and are delivered discreetly at a time and place of the customer’s choice. The anonymity and convenience have emboldened the shoppers to haggle and ask for discounts on condoms and personal lubricants just like any other consumer goods.  “We get customers who want an explanation on why the price is what it is. They want the thrill at the lowest price,” says Raj Armani, Chief Operating Officer, Imbesharam, a U.S. based company that has offices in Delhi and Mumbai, and claims to have a subscriber base of more than 1.5 lakh and viewership of 1.5 million...READ MORE

Sunny Leone's bold and sexy endorsements Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone has established herself in Bollywood as a popular actress who is hugely in demand not just for films and item numbers but also for ads and endorsements.  She charges high (over one crore) for them, but is still a preferred choice because of her huge fan base whose imaginations she sets on fire when she promotes a condom or an alcohol brand. From mobiles to adult websites, Sunny has an enviable number of endorsements to her credit. Have a look at those ads made spicy with her sizzling presence. One of her earliest endorsements was that of Chaze's mobile handsets. The shooting for the brand's television commercial was done in Bangkok.

  THE SEXUAL wellness industry in India is alive and well online. Some refer to it as the adult entertainment industry, but, whatever name it goes by, buying toys and products that enhance the sexual experience is now just a click away. Till a few years ago, such products were only available in seedy corners of specific markets in metros like Palika Bazaar or Lajpat Nagar in Delhi and Crawford Market in Mumbai. For customers, it was not a pleasant experience because of the smuggled products and the sordid manner in which they were sold—a covering lifted to show a vibrator or creams and potions meant to increase sexual appetite. E-commerce has put an end to this furtiveness and led to a boom in the sex toys’ market. It is currently pegged at R1,200 crore-R1,500 crore and expected to reach R2,450 crore by 2016. It can even touch an enviable high of R8,700 crore by 2020, as per some reports. What’s adding to the excitement is that in cities like Pune, Ahmedabad...READ MORE

  MUMBAI, JULY 17:   The sexual wellness category just got a little competitive with India’s largest e-commerce player Flipkart launching it on its portal. Until now, it was the forte of certain small niche players such as ohmysecrets.com, tradus.com and IMbesharam.com, who have explored the potential of this highly unorganized and untapped market. However, other online marketplaces such as Snapdeal and Amazon are also selling a few products in this category. For Flipkart, the entry into the category is to tap these unorganized players, for whom selling sex-related products is still seen as a taboo, experts feel. Also buying such products online is comfortable for Indian women and men, who are opening up to new ideas of intimacy.   Potential goldmine E-commerce experts peg the Indian market for adult sexual products at about Rs. 1,500 crore, which is expected to double by 2016 and touch about Rs. 8,700 crore by 2020. Vinodh Reddy, founder, Ohmysecrets says, “The online market today is growing and the READ MORE

The Business of Pleasure: How 'Adult' Products Are Finding Takers in India Online An edible thong made out of candies; a lubricant to enhance and prolong bedroom 'play' time; a Bluetooth-connected toy that turns your smartphone into a tool to have long-distance moments of intimacy. This might sound far-fetched, but these are all products you can get on various Indian websites. The industry is nascent in India, but as taboos erode, people are starting to talk about what they want from their partners, and a lot of new websites are rising up to fill the gaps in the market. One of the better known sites in this category is That's Personal, which started in January last year. That's Personal has products like gels, lubricants, lingerie, and adult games up for grabs for those wanting to spice up things in the bedroom. Samir Saraiya, CEO, That's Personal says that when he was researching before launching the e-commerce portal, one of the things that genuinely stuck out was the lack of supply for products in this sector. "People were embarrassed to buy something as simple as a condom from the neighbourhood store, because they...READ MORE

E-tail gives sex goods a big push BANGALORE: This may be the best kept secret of India's $2 billion e-commerce story. The country's middle class has found in it a platform that satiates their sexual desires and fantasies in ways that weren't possible before. E-commerce portals like kaamastra, thatspersonal, ohmysecrets, imbesharam have emerged over the last one year or so offering products that include plain vanilla condoms, edible lingerie, play toys, baby dolls, role-play costumes, enlarger creams, tightening lotions, and much more. The target audience spans a wide age group of 18 to 65 years. Over the next six months the product range will see the addition of imported sex furniture (designed for various positions) and tech toys that Vinodh Reddy, founder of ohmysecrets, believes would put the segment in an altogether new growth orbit. "We are even developing a love app whereby a husband and wife through their telephonic conversation would be able to activate devices, connected via Bluetooth, for pleasure," adds Reddy. Players say their sales are rising by 50% to 80% month-on-month. With the introduction of the newer range of products, some foresee sales rising significantly more.

  The Indian culture has always imbibed a shy factor which has pulled the audience away from expressing their sexual desires openly. However, with the emergence of online portals in this space, a wide segment is utilizing this opportunity to satiate their untold needs. Sexual wellness industry is flourishing in India with the adult sexual products market, expected to grow INR 2450 crores in 2016 and INR 8700 crores in 2020. Also, the surveys have revealed that majority orders are received on online portals by women shoppers and from the Tier1 and Tier2 cities. “The global solution is eCommerce and this industry has quickly moved to the web from the physical retail model which has been prevalent for several decades in other parts of the developed world. What’s interesting In India, is that we have never had physical retail in the form of adult shops. Therefore, this is one of the only industries where 100% of the market is online with 0% offline,” said Samir Saraiya, founder, Digital E-Life Pvt Ltd, the owner of portal, ThatsPersonal.com. Also, there are a few challenges. As said by Vinodh Reddy, founder of OhMysecrets.com, the major one...READ MORE

When Mirror met the former adult star, she was in a candid mood and spoke about her past, her monogamous marriage and her future plans. Excerpts:How did your parents react when you first told them about your tryst with adult films? My parents knew my personality which is very independent. They were up against a very headstrong and opinionated person.The fact that I told them before any of our relatives did, helped the acceptance sink in faster. And it wasn't a plan. Adult films just happened and my career took off. But I guess I wouldn't have made it in the mainstream in the US. So what turns you on in a man?

The actress said that entering the porn industry came naturally to her and it wasn’t such a big deal telling her parents. When asked whether India would ever have a porn industry like the US she said that while the nation loves to watch porn on the sly, they don’t talk about it. She chose to stay on the safe side, saying people were conservative instead of labelling them hypocrites. She also has no qualms about her adult industry past, ‘I quit adult films even before I received the Bigg Boss offer,’ she said. Had it not been because of my past, I wouldn’t have reached where I have now.’   The 32-year-old also talked about being in a monogamous relationship with her husband Daniel Weber who has always been supportive of her decisions and she plans to start a family.

Sunny Leone now helps promote sex toys in India – online!   Ever since Sunny Leone entered Big Boss she has taken the country by storm and on the way became the most searched person of the year in 2012 surpassing the likes of Salman Khan,  Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. The former adult star has  pushed the envelope even more and agreed to be the face of IMbesharam.com – India’s number 1 adult lifestyle webstore. Besharam, positioned as India’s number 1 adult lifestyle webstore promises to fulfil every fantasy.

Naughty Business Online Websites selling adult accessories allow India to come out of the closet   Delivery boy Ganesh’s work frequently takes him to Delhi university’s North Campus and adjoining areas. The last time he was there, among the dozens of branded packets in his sack was a black box. Unlike most of the packets that he carried, this one neither had the manufacturer’s logo nor an invoice with the product description. It was meant to be delivered to Arun, the addressee on the packet. Arun, who until recently used to shop for sex paraphernalia in Delhi’s Kamla Nagar market, has now traded the embarrassment and queasiness of shopping in seedy lanes and dimly-lit back rooms of shops with the comfort and anonymity of shopping online for adult products. He no longer needs to mouth the right code — ‘masala maal’ or ‘Chinese toys’, among others — for the salesman to conjure up dildos, role-play costumes, inflatable dolls, vibrators, edible lingerie and lubes that society (more than the law) proscribes. Nor does he have to be wary of the glares of bystanders. Earlier, he would quickly grab the...READ MORE

When JustDial announced its IPO in June last year, VSS Mani heaved a sigh of relief. A 14-year long dream of having his company listed had come to fruition. But a more interesting story is the one of an unexpected but well-known stakeholder making money off the IPO. JustDial had signed Amitabh Bachchan as its brand ambassador in the fag-end of 2010.  He was given 62000-odd shares at a price of INR 10 each and he was roped in for a period of three years. On the day of the company’s listing, those shares were valued at INR 3.83Cr which shot up to more than INR 10 Cr early this year. Most (certainly not all) actors just act. But smart actors have been putting their monies in startups. Ranging from big names like Salman Khan and AR Rehman, to Karisma Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and even Sunny Leone, are all invested in some or the other venture. These celebrities have either put in money or endorsed these products by becoming their brand ambassadors. While the monies that they invest definitely help, but the popularity factor that they bring into the fold is an unmatched advantage. Let us look at...READ MORE

Samir Saraiya mimics the conspiratorial approach of a typical peddler of prurience found at Mumbai’s Manish Market or Delhi’s Palika Bazaar. “Maal chahiye”? (Want stuff?) A jocular 41-year-old, Saraiya left a cushy job as business development head at Microsoft Singapore to set up Thatspersonal.com, one of India’s few organised adult product websites. He knows a bit about Palika Bazaar and Manish Market. These sleazy dens were his stomping grounds for market research. After all, that is where customers would go for sex toys (okay, ‘adult wellness products’ in brochure lingo). Getting pleasure tools from abroad was an option. But that involved the risk of explaining things to beady-eyed hawks at Customs. And making such purchases even abroad was never easy. There was always a chance of bumping into someone you knew (“Uh, hello Professor Banerjee.”) Now, thanks to e-retailers like Thatspersonal.com andImbesharam.com, Indians no longer have to endure embarrassment. World class adult goods can be acquired in complete privacy. The order is delivered in discreet packaging at an address of your choice. There are a few other websites too, but they are still small players.Thatspersonal.com and Imbesharam.com, on the other hand, are ambitious—and legitimate—operations owned and run by serious businessmen.

Come April and Sunny Leone will be your guide to pleasuring yourself and your partner—through props and accessories. The adult-movie star is the brand ambassador of the yet-to-be-launched, US-based adult Web store Imbesharam.com, which will begin operations in India next month. Imbesharam.com, which translates to “I am shameless”, has a website that’s still under construction. What’s available now is a standard-issue Leone pose (unbuttoned white shirt and panties) and the proclamation of already being India’s No.1 adult lifestyle Web store. “We believe everyone is besharam, people may or may not talk about it. What they need is the comfort to talk about themselves,” says Raj Ar., who handles operations and sales for Imbesharam in India, over the phone from the US. The fairly out-there attitude of Imbesharam.com is suggestive of a larger trend in the e-commerce market. To cater to what several Indians, it would seem, are seeking—alone, or with a partner—slowly and almost discreetly, several online start-ups are offering erotic, or as some call it, personal, products, catering to the sexually adventurous. Customers need not feel self-conscious while ordering anything, because the sites offer confidentiality. “A large part of the change includes lifestyles and attitude....READ MORE

Indians are getting more open about their craving for the risqué — from literature and movies, to costumes and sex toys. Markets are only too happy to keep up. Joanna Lobo examines how erotica entered the mainstream When Samir Saraiya told his mother about his new business, this was her reaction: “Why can’t you do something that has some prestige associated with it?” No wonder then that Saraiya, founder of an e-commerce site selling adult merchandise, was initially hesitant to talk about his new enterprise. But once thatspersonal.com was born and attracted global and local media attention, Saraiya figured it was time to stop hiding. Now, he proudly talks of how “fun stuff like body paint, bikini shaving kits and role-playing costumes are selling out” and how “people keep sending in their resumes saying they want to work for him”. RIP uptight India? The launch of websites like thatspersonal.com, buyundercover.com and the proposed launch of imbesharam.com have one thing in common — they deal in adult merchandise and indicate that there is a demand in ‘uptight’ India for such products.
