Community Interview with Ron and Chad Braverman, of Doc Johnson!

Victoria Victoria
The Doctor is in!

Whoa – Doc Johnson is here! And this is no typical interview... we have a father and son interviewing together. Ron Braverman has been in the toy business for 33 years now and is truly a sex toy pioneer. Can you just imagine some of the battles over the years? Being in the adult industry surely isn’t always as fun as it looks. I am certainly curious about those days! I wonder what the first toy Doc ever made was...or what their all-time best seller is. Don’t you want to know how Ron and his staff came up with ideas for some of the most innovative designs in the history of his company? And Ron’s not all toys; he’s also a family man and a leader for rights in the industry, as he is a founding father of the Free Speech Coalition.

Chad is the new generation, coming up in the company and bringing it forward for the last 7 years. I imagine he had quite an edge, having grown up so close to the business. How much did the family business affect his aspirations before he joined the company? What changes has Chad made at Doc Johnson so far and what challenges lay ahead for him as he embarks on new lines with Doc? I sure want to know, and I’m guessing you might too – so ask!

Being the biggest company on the industry takes hard work and a lot of manpower – and now we get to be a fly on the wall in Doc Johnson headquarters – what questions do you have for these fellows? Do you want to know how particular toys are made? There are thousands and thousands to choose from. Maybe you have factory questions, or future lines in the works might pique your interest. I met both men while in LA in July for the industry shows and both of these guys are so friendly. They were immediately interested in Eden Link and doing the community interview – to be available to you, to get feedback and to share information. I am so excited to be able to ask all those questions that I tried not to bombard them with at our meeting! What an awesome opportunity!

Ask as many questions as you’d like; you can even post about and link to the interview from your blog if you want to. Feel free to share your thoughts! And to make it even more fun, we’re giving prizes for the Ron and Chad’s favorite 3 participants.

1st prize: $100 cash

2nd prize: $50 cash

3rd prize: Any one Doc Johnson toy you want from our entire site.

We know you like a little extra fun sometimes!

The interview is open for questions from today (September 3rd) – September 13th.

We are delighted to have this dynamic duo – father and son, legendary purveyors of Pleasure – the men behind Doc Johnson! Welcome Ron, and Chad!

It looks like this will be a very interesting interview too. I also had no idea that it was a father/son company.

That's very good, actually.

I personally have quite a few Doc Johnson products, and I use them often.

What an amazing interview! Over 50 questions and answers! Getting both perspectives of father and son was truly exceptional. This was a one-of-a-kind experience and we appreciate being able to bring it to the public. Everyone certainly seemed to enjoy it!

I personally loved reading about the wild wild west days, about the future of Doc and the real deal about how the company is run.

Thank you so much, Ron and Chad! You were so candid, so open and so friendly in all of your answers – even when they were very personal! I am truly impressed with all of the details you shared. It was very cool that you talked about your relationship with each other and the work balance.

I’m sure you’re wondering who was chosen as best participants…

The winners Ron and Chad chose are:

1st prize: $100 cash - Seductive

2nd prize: $50 cash – Miss Cinnamon

3rd prize: Any one Doc Johnson toy you want from our entire site – Adriana Ravenlust

Congratulations to all 3 of you! Great questions!

Again – a huge THANK YOU to Ron and Chad Braverman for the excellent interview!

NO.

I've narrowed it down to about 6, though
