Jimmyjane is a privately held company that was in San Francisco, California then moved to Larkspur, CA which produces high-end, design-oriented sexual accessories including vibrators and sex toys. Ethan Imboden, the company’s founder and creative director, launched the company in 2003.[1][2][3] In October 2014, Robert Rheaume became the president.[4]

Jimmyjane's product collection ranges from lotions, games, blindfolds and massage candles to award-winning vibrators,[5] which include flagship steel, gold and platinum models. The products are designed in-house, and have been recognized with AIGA, ID and IDSA design awards.[6]

In 2009, Jimmyjane released the first vibrator in their Pleasure to the People series, a design collaboration between Founder, Ethan Imboden, and designer Yves Béhar. The first release in the series was the Form 2 Waterproof Rechargeable Vibrator, which was followed by Form 3, and Form 4 which completed the series after three years.[7]

In May 2013, the vibrators were featured on the Rachael Ray show.[8] In 2014, Imboden was a keynote speaker at the XBIZ adult entertainment industry convention in Los Angeles, in a speech about sex toys.[9]

Over the course of 2015, Forms 1, 5 and 8 were released, as well as the LiveSexy line that are lower priced versions of the premium Form products.[4]
