Thank Goodness for Discreet Shipping!

Splendwhore Splendwhore
Yesterday, I discovered a new appreciation for Eden Fantasys and their discretion. I admit, the first time I ordered online from EF, I was worried what I might receive in the mail, and who would see it. Thankfully, I've always received all of my items in plain, nondescript brown boxes. But I've come to realize that perhaps this isn't the case with all companies.. perhaps I've just been spoiled.

I give you Exhibit A: "How NOT to be Discreet"

Oh my goodness! That is ridiculous! Why on earth would anyone think that slapping a giant condom sticker on your package would be discreet??!

This really does make me appreciate EF's packaging more. Imagine if all your sex toys came in a box that was all stickerified with things like "Just Screw It!" and "HERE ARE YOUR VIBES" o_O Hilarious! The stuff of fail!Discretion. But not so funny when it happens to you.

And, um, good luck with your mailman ^^;;

Haha, thanks. I'll already be suffering the humiliation, so I figured I might as well share with the rest of the world. At least nothing else I've ever received has never arrived so.. explicitly obvious. Lol! I like the "HERE ARE YOUR VIBES" sticker. Thanks for sharing in a laugh with me.

LOL Sorry about your embarrassment, but I saw those types of stickers and mail packaging themes at Spencer's a lot.

But also think of it this way - there are WAY WEIRDER things shipped in the mail in packaging that tells everyone what it is. Imagine having to deliver something from the 'Colon Research Institute', or just delivering multiple porn mag subscriptions to one address.

LOL wow! I wonder if the company actually did that. There is such a thing as mail graffiti. Have you ordered from there before?

Oh man - that's funny in a "glad it wasn't at my house" way. I'm not too worried about the mailman but having to explain that to my 9 year old may tax my parental talents a bit.

Interesting..when you told me that they had a sticker on it, I did not think that. That sticker's huge! I wonder why they would have done that?

Omg, that is so tacky! Did you call the company that you ordered from?

I'm inclined to believe it was the company that did so, because another blogger who received products from them also had the same sticker, only hers was inside the box, instead of all over the front.

Hence the visual. It just doesn't do it justice to say "There was a condom sticker on my packaging". You have to see it, in all its huge monstrosity, to fully appreciate how funny and inappropriate it was.

wow!

Why not put "NOT a sex toy" on the front of the box?!?

I agree, and no I haven't called or written to them. I'm not inclined to complain, as I was receiving free products from them for review. It's a condom company, so I get that maybe they're trying to spread the word about safety.. but did you have to do it all over my package? xDD

I can't believe that! Especially for someone who lives with her parents when I'm not in a dorm room, I appreciate the discretion.

I know! I'm just glad I didn't receive this when I was still living with my mother, or worse, my almost in-laws. I could just imagine the prudish look on that evil, god fearing woman I might one day call "Mother in law"'s face.

I'm sorry but I honestly had to laugh. Who would do that?! Why! There have been a few times where I've had EF send my package to my work for certain reasons, but man I would have been seriously embarrassed if our mailman--whom we have extended conversations with every day--were to come in going "Uhh.... This is for you."

Thank you for this post, Splendwhore, and thank you EF for your discreet shipping!

That is pretty funny. I am just picturing some young kid in the shipping department that is quitting in a few days entertaining himself... but who knows.

Oh man I'd be horrified if something like that came here since half the time my kids answer the door!

I recently had a "situation" with adam & eve... I've never purchased anything from them. Ever. But I recently set up an account there as I was thinking I might try a couple of things that I've seen there that I haven't found anywhere else. I know they do a lot of e-mail advertising, in that I get multiple emails from them every single day, trying to tempt me with different offers. I will admit, getting several a DAY is a bit annoying, but whatever... I just delete them. I never at any time though approved that they could send something to my home.

I got a letter from them a couple of weeks ago, and to say that it was the polar opposite of discrete is being NICE. Big black bold letters were printed across the front, informing me on the COVER of the envelope where everyone could read, that I'm behind in a layaway payment, and to hurry up and finish paying off my total so they can send me my items. They even listed a bogus amount remaining of like $89 and change with a return address listed as being themselves and their trademark symbol printed in several locations all over the envelope. Nothing about this was even remotely discreet. And what was worse, is that there was no layaway payment to be made. This was not a bill like it was made out to be. I tear it open and just find a single sheet advertisment for the website feat. a girl on her hands and knees with her ass pointed at the camera, and a coupon for 30% off my next visit to the site. That's it. I don't even think adam & eve even HAS a layaway program.

... But try explaining that to my sister who is the one that picked up the mail. My sister, who refuses to buy a vibrator and would probably have a heart attack and think I needed to be committed if she knew I liked anal toys and being tied up. She knows I have toys and I write reviews and whatnot, but I don't exactly elaborate past that, as the whole thing makes her very uncomfortable despite several attempts on my part to change her mind.


But seriously, my sister and I are currently sharing a large house while I help her raise her three boys, one of which is a 16 year old teen. This kind of letter ticks me off. What if one of them had seen it??? Never mind trying to explain it to them, everyone is rather tight-knit on our street. Everyone knows everyone and everyone's kids all play together and there is an open door policy on pretty much every house. Which means kids of all ages and coming and going all the time as are their parents.

This to me, was just unacceptable on SO many levels.

I too get the numerous emails from A&E, it does get really annoying after a while. So far I haven't gotten anything in the mail from them, but if I got something like that I'd be pretty pissed off too.

I am just saying that there might be a logical explanation here, that is not really the fault of the company. But I could be wrong.

I would almost agree with you, except for the fact that another reviewer was sent some products from them as well and she had the same sticker, only on the INSIDE of her package. I mean, I would have appreciated a free sticker, but not one plastered all over my public mail.

Oh my GOD. I live in a super small Southern town where everyone knows everyone else, so my dad and I are close with our mailman. Thank you, EF for being so discreet, or I would have to move.

I've always gotten priority mail boxes from "Web Merchants". The mailman has commented lately on how many packages I've gotten, but it's mostly been around my birthday so that's a valid excuse for now.

I told my dad I was waiting on a package, and he asked who it was from. I said "Web Merchants Inc" and he was like "You get a lot of packages from them! What do you buy?"

I kinda just mumbled something about technology that I knew he wouldn't get and walked off.

Oh thank goodness EF packages thing discreetly... because one time the post office held my package and I had to go get it myself. The post office was packed and I was so glad no one could tell what was inside.

Yes, I'm very thankful for discrete shipping! I would not wanting everyone knowing my business lol. Unfortunately, if you have postal service like I do, discrete shipping doesn't matter since the postal workers open every package you get! Lol Seriously, they do that & put the contents in a clear plastic baggy and last month my Hera vibe was opened from the package and opened from it's own container and squished and left open! I hate that. It's kind of embarrassing and it happens A LOT!
