Welcome Fred Petrenko, Owner and Founder of Edenfantasys, to the Community Interview!

Ansley Ansley


Ten years ago, Fred Petrenko, started Edenfantasys in his New York apartment. In the time since Eden first launched there have been countless innovations in the way customers shop for adult products; from the inception of the review program, to it's big brother the mentor program, all the way down to how the site is designed.

In celebration of all of these amazing accomplishments, we are inviting the community to participate in an interview with the man who started it all! That's right, starting today July 11th, you will be able to ask Fred the things you've always wanted to know about Eden.

This isn't the first time the community has interviewed Fred; in 2009 he was interviewed by the community and you can find that here. Read his past answers to inspire your questions! Did you know our fearless leader has a PhD in Physics and a serious love of the environment?

Questions can be submitted until midnight on the 19th of July! After he's responded, he will then pick three lucky winners to receive prizes sponsored by Fun Factory!



1st Prize: Cobra Libre

2nd Prize: G4 calla

3rd Prize: Yooo

A PhD in Physics? WOW! I am impressed.

First of all I remember the first interview in 2009 and one of the things that really got me wanting to jump in and really help make this a community that people wanted to join was Fred's Mission Statement. I was struck by the sincerity and the drive it takes to turn a business into a lifestyle.
You have had a major effect in so many people's lives and I know that you don't hear a genuine, "Thank you, man!" near enough.

So here goes: "Thank you, Fred, for everything that you have done for me and for my family by bringing together so many amazing people and being instrumental in building a safe place for my little family to play."

Hello Mr.Petrenko,

First of all I would like to say thank you for creating EdenFantasys and the stie. In all honesty it is a inviting, friendly, and a safe enviroment to explore sexuality.

Wow from physics to sex toys. What a life changer.

Have a great day,
Lori

I too am surprised he switched from physics to sex toys. There is always a benefit to having a vice fund financially though.

Another interview with the big cheese? Hell to the YA!

A big thank you Fred, not just for creating a wonderful place to talk and shop for toys but for being so generous! If more business owners thought like you, the world would be a much better place.

Wow! I'm new here and somehow had imagined that Edenfantasys had been started by a woman. Surprise to me! Very interesting.

I remember the old interview!

Hello, again, Fred, and thank you for the most welcoming and wonderful community I've ever been a part of. Edenfantasys has been my home for years, and I plan to be here for many more.

Many of my questions were answered in the previous interview but here is one I thought about-

How has being involved with EdenFantasys changed your attitude towards sex? Do you feel that you have always been equally sex positive or have you evolved from watching the community and monitoring the latest trends?

I know I have learned a lot from fellow reviewers and their articles. Thanks so much for EF, I love being part of this community.

We have e-parties on occasion at EF. They're probably one of the coolest things I've ever done on the internet. We all meet at the same time in one thread. That way we get a chance to hang out with everyone, make new friends, win prizes! The one we're having this month is on July 26th and will start at 8 PM. Find out more here!

What she said.

EF has truly turned my sex life around. I owe Fred a great deal of thanks, and my husband is extremely grateful as well.
