About this project
We have devised a solution to the three most common problems faced by EVERYONE who owns a pleasure product: proper sanitization, convenient charging, and discreet storage. Our product is UVee, the world’s first device that manages ALL three tasks – and does so better than ANY standalone product you’d otherwise need for each. Simply place a toy inside our handsome, locking storage box, plug it into the internal USB charging port, and close the lid. The UVee’s built-in ultraviolet light bed does the rest.
Here is a breakdown of how our patent-pending process works:
Sanitization: Our proprietary, reflective UV-C system kills 99.9% of all germs in 5 minutes – no matter how intricately shaped the toy is. While there are many toy cleaning methods and products available today, none can claim to be scientifically proven to eliminate harmful bacteria found on sex toys – except ours.
Charging: Each UVee is outfitted with on-board USB charging ports inside the storage compartment. UVee GO Play is rechargeable, so it is able to charge an enclosed toy – with or without AC power.
Storage: What may seem like the UVee’s least impressive feature may actually be its greatest asset. Concealing a sex toy can be daunting for anyone, especially considering it needs to be charged, cleaned, and dried before you hide it under your socks (yes, we know about your brilliant hiding spot…). With charging and cleaning taken care of inside UVee’s elegant, locking enclosure, the hunt for the perfect hideaway is over.
We've developed, designed and are now in production. Now we need your contribution to bring our revolutionary product straight to your bedroom!
Founder, Carrie Martz with 30+ years of experience in advertising, marketing and branding, sold her agency in 2013 to Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy. After trying out retirement for a few months she was bored and looking for something exciting to do. Bringing her own product to market had always been a dream of hers. Having been the marketing guru behind the successful launch of ZhuZhu Pets as well as Yurbuds, she was definitely well equipped to introduce a product but needed the right one.
The “ah hah” moment came when her daughter Brooke was pregnant and reading mom blogs about the use of toys and potential cause for infection during pregnancy. Nothing really seemed safe. After talking with gynecologists, a microbiologist, UV-C light experts, adult toy industry specialists and even a trip to China to visit with factories, the mother daughter team were in business – UVee was born. They quickly realized there was a need for more than a universal way to sanitize pleasure products but also to keep them safely stored (away from prying little eyes) and charged and ready for go time. Hence, the 3-in-1 storage solution!
It is exciting for a Mother/Daughter team to be working on this together, attending shows, meeting with buyers and launching the campaign. It definitely gives two perspectives having a young married mom and a 50+ single woman when evaluating sexual health and education products.
Risks and challenges
Changing the traditional way of doing things, like cleaning your toys, and introducing a revolutionary solution is always challenging. Designing and manufacturing our product to be as effective as our testing prototypes at a mass level required a seamless manufacturing process. In addition, making a system that accommodates the variety of shapes and intricacy of toys required a specialized reflection system. We are bringing new technology to an industry that has never seen anything like it. Designing the most effective product with features our customers wanted took time to test and engineer, and a product with all of these components requires sophisticated quality control and inspection certifications, which we are 100% compliant with.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
