Adam & Eve Catalog
Mailed for the first time in 1971, the Adam & Eve catalog introduced sex toys and adult movies to millions of Americans. Before the catalog, adults had to rely on dirty, dingy stores in back alleys and decaying movie theaters in the “bad parts of town” for their needs.
The Adam & Eve catalog, however, revolutionized the adult industry by bringing sex toys and adult movies straight to your mailbox. People could now shop for adult products in complete privacy from the comfort of their own couch. For the first time in history, the general public had easy access to adult items and sales skyrocketed.
The first Adam & Eve catalogs focused mainly on condoms. As the catalog grew more popular, the selection expanded to include sex education books, lingerie, comedy records, bar paraphernalia and novelty items like sword canes. As women became more sexually assertive, Adam & Eve started adding more vibrators and dildos to the catalog. The expansion of home entertainment with the development of the VCR in the 1980s and DVD player in the ‘90s led to a huge increase in the number of adult movies we carry. Both trends shaped the catalog into its current form.
Today, the iconic Adam & Eve Catalog is mailed regularly to millions of people worldwide – continuing a decades-old tradition by bringing the newest vibrators, cock rings, dildos and adult DVDs straight to your door.
