XR Brands - Behind the scenes

28th Jun 2019


We’ve worked with XR for a number of years and they’re an amazing group. They’re always innovating and pushing forward in the adult industry, we are proud to have their products available on

So, we thought it would be a bit of fun to delve behind the scenes and get to know our big brand partners a little better. A short Q&A that we plan to do every month with some of the best and brightest brands in the industry.

We hope this is both informative and amusing! A great sense of humour goes along way in this industry after-all!

So without further ado,

  • Would you like to introduce yourself and the company you work for?

My name is Michael and I am with XR Brands.

  • What is your role within the company and how long have you worked there?

My official title is International Director of Marketing and Business Development. Simply, I’m the salesperson for many of the accounts outside the Americas. I’ve been with them for two years next month. I’ve been in the industry about eight years.

  • Are you more Buzz or Pinky? (open to interpretation!!)

I’m absolutely 100% the buzziest buzz of all buzzes.

Or was I Pinky?

  • What do you enjoy most about your working day?

I get to tell people to go f- themselves and call it “instruction”.

Kidding. I truly love the people in this company and the industry. Great people selling great products for great sex. What else could one want to do with their lives?

  • Do you have a favourite brand or product you sell, and if so, Why?

Our new Thunderplugs line is amazing. Three waterproof, premium silicone, and rechargeable toys designed and manufactured exclusively by XR Brands. The coolest part is the truly unique functions each has, including thrusting or twirling or inflating – all controlled from either the wireless remote or the base of the unit. Our team outdid themselves on the design, build quality and branding on this one. [ED – coming soon]

  • What do you think your company does better than most?

I think we do a lot better than most. Any success I find is dependent upon the great job product development does making the products, the impactful campaigns that the art and marketing staff develop to promote the products, and the efficiency of our support and warehouse staff in serving the customer. We also have an amazing leader who brings in new skill sets when necessary to keep the team growing as the company grows.

  • Why do you keep going on about

I keep going on about the BuzzPinky selection, prices and service. Plus, they carry Master Series!!

  • Greatest personal achievement?

Got my wife to marry me. In the US, we refer to it as “outkicking one’s coverage”. It means she’s too good for me. 

Favourite Joke? And or Bonus Question – Best TV series you are currently watching?

Warning. I have small meme pages on FB and IG and new friends that follow me are always a little surprised by how twisted my sense of humour is. This is tame-ish.

A murderer, a masochist, a sadist, and pyromaniac are sitting together and the sadist says: “Hey let’s get a cat and torture it!”, and the murderer says: “Ok, let’s torture a cat and then kill it!”, so the pyromaniac says: “Great, let’s torture a cat, then kill it, and then burn it!”, to which the masochist replies: “Meow”

BTW – I have two cats. No cats were harmed in the making of this joke.

My favourite shows tend to be adult animation – Archer, Rick & Morty, Bojack Horseman, Final Space, etc. I also love documentaries.

  • Shout outs, Up and coming news (product launches, shows, promotions etc?)

2019 is our 20th Anniversary and the team is taking a little time to celebrate how far our founders and their team have come. However, we’re truly taking only “a little time” because we’re too excited for the next 20 years.

_Michael – you’re a great sport. Thanks for being the first to take part in BuzzPinky’s back stage pass

Look out next month for another BuzzPinky Q&A!
