"MUA (that's pronounced "mwah," of course) adds a little high design to storing--or even displaying--your collection." - Fast Company
“We’d buy this.” – XoJane.com
“Every woman remembers, with an appropriate level of comic horror, the moment in Sex and the City when Miranda’s Ukranian housekeeper, Magda, stumbled upon her “goody drawer.”…It was precisely this type of scenario that led Lidia Bonilla, a design innovator, to create a pleasure products organizer called MUA.” – Huffington Post Women
“Bonilla’s accomplishment may be one small step for man, but one giant leap for the sex toys industry.” – Nerve.com
“There are countless options for organizing different parts of your life, but one area is still lacking: How do you organize your sex toys? Or rather, your ‘pleasure products’? Behold the MUA Box.” – The Daily Dot
“Proud to say this is a friend of mine launching her business. Disruptive!” – Paul Carrick Brunson, “Modern Day Hitch” and Relationship Coach
“Bonilla believes that this is a good step for society and that it shows that people are becoming more and more sex positive. I certainly hope she’s right.” – The Gloss

Who are we
MUA (pronounced Mwah! Like a kiss) is an Intimate lifestyle company dedicated to creating products that fuse sensuality with functionality. Committed to personal empowerment, MUA was founded on the belief that embarrassment has no place in the pursuit of pleasure.
How MUA was Conceived
MUA is a result of my personal passion for design and need for secure, beautiful storage. After an embarrassing incident with a professional organizer who discovered my personal stash of toys, I set out to find a storage solution – and found nothing that met my criteria.
I set out to create a product worthy of the accessories it was designed to store. Beautiful, functional, discreet and secure. And completely unique.
With your support, we can bring MUA to the discerning adults who crave passion and prefer to keep it private.
With love and style,
Lidia and the MUA team
Why You’ll Love the MUA Box
The MUA box is an elegant and functional storage solution unlike any other. It offers convenient features to organize and safely store pleasure products. The MUA box is a great wedding gift and perfect for Valentine's Day. The case is awesome for travel.
Why you should 'Back the Box'
We’re excited. Everyone we’ve talked to so far – boutique shops, specialty catalogues – are excited, too. You’ll help us with production and distribution costs to manufacture MUA boxes and cases and make them available to consumers in time for Valentine's Day.
Our funding goal of $10,000 will pay for our initial production order, packaging and fulfillment costs. Understanding we are a start-up, our manufacturers have been willing to reduce the initial order quantities, but we still need your support bringing the MUA box to life.

The MUA team would like to thank our design team at Arsenio Garcia ID, our friends and families for their support and a special thanks to Babeland, The Pleasure Chest, and Corset Magazine for their input, feedback and excitement over MUA.
Where are we now
We have completed our design. We have established great relationships with manufacturers, having gone through months of samples.
The lacquer process takes considerable time to get a rich tone and quality finish. Barring unforeseen issues, we anticipate production time, including fulfillment, to take 45 days. Our goal is to have the MUA box ready for you to enjoy by Valentine's Day, February 14, 2014.
Risks and challenges
The challenges to most new products are vast, but not insurmountable. We know there is a demand for discreet, stylish storage of intimate items and have been working hard with our manufacturers to create an amazing, high quality product at an attractive price.
From spending months examining samples and performing a site visit of our overseas manufacturers, our design team will work diligently to mitigate any potential production issues.
We have learned tremendously from other campaigns where the backers were disappointed with the final product and at MUA we have worked endlessly to mitigate this risk.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
