Thanks for your replies and feedback, I am getting a lot of good information from you all! Allow me to touch a few bases that you both covered.
The adult industry is very mainstream, and not very limited anymore.
Breakdown of adult industry sales in 2006:
Video sales, rentals $3.6 billion
Internet $2.8 billion
Exotic dance clubs $2.0 billion
Cable/pay-per-view TV $1.8 billion
Novelties $1.7 billion
Magazines $950 million
Mobile $39 million
Total: $12.9 billion
That is roughly 50% of the annual US toy revenue for last year! or the estimated coffee market income.
Also, my idea is the actual "utilitarian" use for the item, which I have three such products using the same concept, just different designs, configurations, colors etc.... Additionally, believe it or not, my products actually target a portion of the industry demographic that have not been catered to at this time.
The market is there, and is prime for the devices, I just need to get it there. I would love to find a company I can partner with, but it seems like every major player in the field doesn't like the inventor types
Or I haven't found that one yet!
I already know the price range of the devices, retail price anyway.. the retail price will be somewhere between 49-69 dollars per unit, so I can expect about 15-20 per unit build cost (I am assuming).
I already have sales people on the east and west coast so if need be, I can sell the items direct to the retail outlets, as well as online.
What I really need to find is a company to assist in making my prototype, and molds for the final product! I really appreciate the feedback and thoughtful replies!
