Raven Faber, a structural engineer and founder EngErotics, a company that sells sex toys and sensual CBD products, would like to work with more people of color.
It’s not like I just meet a lot of other black women who are also engineers. And in the world of sex tech, I don’t see a lot of people that look like me. It’s the same with CBD,” she said.

How did a structural engineer become the founder of a sex toys & CBD company? And what’s the connection between better sex and CBD?
Raven is a black woman who started her career in STEM and ended up founding a healthy, educational sex toy company, EngErotics. Using her engineering background Raven has developed sex toys that work for people of all sexual orientations, genders and body types. Matt sat down with Raven to discuss their recent addition of CBD products to their line and how CBD can affect and even help improve intimacy.
Raven founded EngErotics in 2016 in response to a clear lack of design standards and safety regulations in the sexual wellness industry. She has over a decade of engineering and sales experience and she is very passionate about using the fundamentals of engineering, math, and science as the basis for the design and development of high-quality sex toys as well as CBD infused intimate body care products. She is extremely passionate about normalizing the conversation surrounding sex and sex education and believes very deeply in the need for engineers and scientists to have a direct influence on how the world looks at intimate product design, formulation, quality, and safety.

EngErotics is a unique company bringing modern science to intimate products. Their CBD-infused EngErotics Oh!Nectar relaxes while enhancing the sense of touch.
The EngErotics motto is “pleasure derived from science.” To that end they’ve designed creative and high quality vibrators and other intimate toys, along with a corresponding line of CBD-infused body care products. When it comes both to intimacy devices and CBD, consumers realize that it’s important to be conscious about the ingredients and purity of what we put in and on our bodies. EngErotics puts vital care into both their CBD products and the toys they create or curate on their website.

What inspired you to start your business?
I founded EngErotics in response to a clear lack of design standards and safety regulations in the sex toy industry. I also founded it because I had encountered so many bullets, vibrators, and such that seemed to be slapped together with shoddy internal components and cheap and/or toxic materials.

Self-care can be challenging right now, especially if you were used to engaging with the world in ways that simply aren’t possible anymore.
