With Valentines fast approaching it’s time to reveal this years Limited Edition Valentines Collection, drum roll please…. ‘Pastel Be My Valentines’.
For a very limited time only (ending February 28th) we will be making the much loved ‘Be My Valentines’ range in pastel colours with pretty little pastel hearts for you to share the dildo love with your partner(s)!
The original red ‘Be My Valentine’ started life back in 2016 as a limited edition Adam for that most heart-filled time of year, Valentines, but you, and you and possibly you over there changed that because you kept requesting we make it again and again to the extent that we were almost getting daily emails about it. As a result we never stopped making them and it became a regular product listing and one of our all time best sellers.
Last year we decided it was time to do something special for Valentines again and so offered a limited run of Be My Valentine toys in 6 different colours, purple, green, blue, pink, orange, yellow and of course the original red. Interestingly purple was popular but the red still out sold them all.
This year we have decided to bring those colours back so if you missed them last time you have another chance to get one but we have also decided to bring some pastel love to Valentines this year and so you can also pick from 6 beautiful pastel colours Blue Lagoon, Paris Green, Peach Puff, Princess Perfume, Electric Lavender and Mellow Yellow and if like me you have trouble picking your favourite then we are also offering you the chance to buy a pastel combo mix with the base colour of your choice and the hearts in all 6 of the pastel colours.
Just like all our toys each and every one is hand made in our workshop in Leicester, but just in case you didn’t know, every single Be My Valentines toy is hand made by Monika as she is the only one with the patience required for getting all those hearts perfectly suspended inside each toy. Which also means that if you follow us on Instagram them you might just catch a glimpse of her making your toy if you order something from this range.
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” ~ Thomas Merton
And maybe with a fabulous heart-filled dildo too!
New year, new you?
Versions of this saying are all over the place at the moment as all sorts of companies try to convince you that their product or service is just what you need in 2019. Much of that marketing is about dieting and often comes alongside a message that is basically telling you that you are not good enough because you are not slim enough. On the surface it might all look positive but underneath it is actually really negative.
Here at Godemiche we wanted to make January about something a bit different. Still with a focus on personal well being, just a really positive one. We discovered that January is Self-Love month. No, not like that you naughty lot but in the sense of taking caring of yourself but, well, we sell dildos and have just launched our first ever penis toy and so we decided that January should be all about taking care of yourself. Take a bath, read a book, enjoy a nice meal, make a list of things you want to do this summer, see a friend you have not seen in ages, write a letter to someone, buy some flower and yes get into bed with yourself and enjoy the pleasures of your own body.
As part of self-love month we are renaming January #Wankuary.
Masturbation remains a taboo subject regardless of gender. Just the reasons for it being taboo are different and so we want to encourage a more open and honest conversation about self pleasure. We will be posting a variety of blog posts that we hope will help to provide useful and interesting reading about this subject as well a some sexy masturbation erotic fiction to help you all get in the mood for a bit of self lovin.
Wanking is good for you, not just your body but for your mind as well, it can help you relax and even sleep better and best of all you will be giving a gift to someone you care about, you! So break out the lube and put on some smooth jazz (or whatever tickles your musical taste buds) and treat yourself to all the joys that a wank can bring.
But we would also like to hear from you guys. Do you have a masturbation story to tell? Maybe it is funny, maybe it is sad, maybe it is insanely hot. If you have something you would like to share with us then please do get in touch. You can message us on Twitter or Instagram or else leave a comment on this blog post. If we get enough stories we will put them all together in a post here so you can read them all.
What better way to start your year than with #Wankuary
We love colour; Fabulous, attention grabbing, wonderful colour is what we do.
If you think about it colour is very personal, some you like, others you do not and some you absolutely love. We all have our favourites though whether that be the clothes we wear, the colour we paint our homes or the sex toys we buy. Colour can be way of expressing yourself, feelings, tastes, fashion and at Godemiche we have always wanted to give people the biggest, brightest and most creative pot of colours to be choose from.
Every now and then we have an idea that makes us go wow, OMFG this would be amazing! How do we do it? We have to do it! Lets do it! Yes that is a real life Adam conversation.
From a single idea we started experimenting with different colours, pouring them to see if we could replicate the well known camouflage patterns in our silicone dildos. The answer as you will see is yes and from that one single idea these two new fabulous colour collections were born.
The MK Collection
The MK collection is inspired by the traditional military camouflage colours. These distinctive and well known colours blend to form irregular shapes, patterns that are instantly recognizable. There are 5 different colour mixes in this collection.
MK1 DPM – Inspired by one of the oldest and most well-known camouflage colourings it is the traditional mixture of browns and woodland green.
MK2 Woodlands – Inspired by the AOR-2 colours developed by the US Navy the the MK2 Woodlands is a mixture of greens and cream.
MK3 Urban – Inspired by Urban camouflage and its many different iterations, for the MK3 Urban we went with different shades of grey and black.
MK4 Snow – Inspired by the clean and crisp look of the snow camouflage. The MK4 Snow is shades of white through to black.
MK5 Desert – Inspired by the AOR-1 the MK5 desert colour way is packed with different shaded of brown, form a dark coffee to a creamy caramel.
The Colourflage Collection
Colourflage is the like that graffiti covered urban street that is full of character, oozing rebellious vibes.
Love the camouflage patterns but not so keen on the standard colours associated with it? Then this range has been designed just for you as it takes the irregular shapes and unique patterns that is distinctive to camouflage and blends them in your favourite colours. Four shades of each colour to be precise from light to dark, all hand mixed and poured ensuring that each one will be it’s own unique creation
It’s still that amazing camouflage pattern just more colourful and funky!
The Colourflage range comes in a choice of 7 different colours: Red, Pink, Blue, Purple, Yellow, Green, Orange.
We are super proud of this new collection and can’t wait to find out what you all think about it. We would be fibbing if we said we didn’t have out favourites but what we are really interested in is finding out which ones are your favourites?

It’s been a crazy few weeks; Kids off school, a huge wave of orders to make and the heat is definitely causing not one but a few headaches for us as it slows down the making process. However it is now time to take a well deserve family break for our small team and spend some time just relaxing and having fun. It sounds almost impossible with that amount of work we have at the minute but we hope you’ll understand and be patient to wait a little bit longer for your parcels.
Our holiday break starts on the 18th August – 1st September during this time we won’t be replying to any emails and messages, we would like to just switch off and recharge our batteries to bring new ideas for the rest of the year. So here are the things you need to know.
Our email will be set to an auto-reply response.
Any orders placed between 16th August and 1st September will be made and dispatched after this period. All order placed before the 16th will be sent out before we go away. However while we are away there will be no one in the office and so there will be a delay on any new orders until the first week in September
If you want to ask a question or have something urgent you need then you can contact us on Twitter @GSilicone and our lovely social media curator Molly will help you .
Thank you for all your support and understanding.
Now we’re off to pack our bags.
Wishing you all a lovely rest of the summer.

Last month we held our Pride auction in which we made 6 exclusive Ambit dildos in various different pride colours. Every single penny that we raised from that auction was sent to the Albert Kennedy Trust to help support their work with vulnerable LGBT+ youth.
A total of £307 was raised by you amazing people, £307 pounds! We submitted the money to the Albert Kennedy Trust on 13th June at 10.46PM. That money will pay for 12 nights of safety in LGBT-friendly emergency accommodation for a young person in crisis and in our eyes that’s a huge thing!
All of us here at Godmeiche want to say thank you for making that possible. We want to thank you for bidding, thank you for sharing, thank you for doing your little bit to help this auction raise the money it did. We as a community have helped to better someone’s life who’s in need and that is something we are very proud of.
Speaking of thank you’s, we received an email from Claire at the Albert Kennedy Trust thanking us for the donation. We followed that up with a phone call were we discussed the auction with her and explained how it was our customers who had really raised the money. As a result of that Claire wanted to share a thank you directly with those people and this is what she sent us:
“We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped to raise the fantastic amount of £307 by bidding on this auction, and to Godemiche for choosing to support our young people in this creative way.
Sadly for many LGBT young people there is no safe place to call home, and many have experienced rejection, abuse and violence. Like you, we believe this is unacceptable. The money you raised together can pay for 12 nights of safety for a LGBT young person facing homelessness.
We believe that no young person should have to choose between a safe home and being who they are. Thank you again to everyone who helped make this auction such a brilliant success, and we wish you all a very happy Pride month”

We have always wanted to make a difference and to fight for the things be believe in and we, you, us are making a difference together so thank you for being part of that with us.
Today marks our second Independence day.
It does not mark the day we started trading as Godemiche but the day when we finally left our day jobs and both started working as Godemiche full time. Gone were the days of a regular wage, now it was truly all down to us. Whilst it was a nerve wrecking time it was also hugely exciting for both of us to be our own bosses. All we knew back then was that we wanted to make beautiful, colourful, body safe, affordable toys for people.
Last year it was amazing to realise that we had managed a whole year working for ourselves but this year it feels doubly special because we no longer feel like we are giving this a try but that we have some great extent succeeded in making it a success. Clearly we still very much at the beginning of the Godemiche journey but completing a second year as our own bosses has really helped our confidence and belief in what are doing.
This past year has been one of huge growth for us. We have added new products to our range, we continue to make colours the centre of everything we do and are constantly experimenting with different mixes and combinations. We went to Erofame in Germany and expanded our wholesale business and we have launched our lovely new website/shop to name just a few f the highlights of the last 365 days.
We have a huge list of ideas and plans for the next year too including very exciting new product, new colours, lots more of our guides and tips videos as well as some other secret things we can’t mention just yet but before we move forward with all that we really want to celebrate this last year of Godemiche with you our friends, customers, supports because you really are the heart of what we do. We have always believed that good customer service and a quality product are the core values really of what we do and so as a huge thank you to every one who has helped us along the way we are yet again thanking you and celebrating this special day in the life of our business with a huge 24 hour *50% off Independence sale.
- The sale will run from midnight 6th July 2018 – midnight 7th July 2018
- *Strapon harness, candles, Lube, Inspired By Range, gift cards, certificates and shipping are all excluded from the sale
- To claim your 50% off simply add the code ‘G50’ at the checkout.

We really hope that you will come and celebrate this milestone with us and in the process get yourself a fabulous bargain from our range of products.

What do you get if you mix some Mellow yellow, Paris green, Princess Perfume, Blue Lagoon, Peach Puff and Electric Lavender together?
The answer is our new limited edition pastel confused rainbow!
Despite the occasional sprinkling of snow and days of rain which still feel a lot like winter it is officially the beginning of spring and that means chocolate, daffodils, and everything in beautiful pastel colours. Including your dildo!
Last year we launched our pastel collection and we wanted to do something similar but new this time around and we have stepped it up a notch and decided to combine all those beautiful soft colours that you love so much into one delightfully swirly confused rainbow. It has taken us a couple of months to perfect the pour on this product because the colours are more subtle than in the original confused rainbow they need to be mixed in a very specific way to retain the distinct colours within one dildo but we finally worked it out and we think the end result is something very special indeed.
This unique colour mix is available only in our Adam, Ambit and Hercules models and only for 22 days. So you only have until the 21st April 2018 to get your hands on one of these special edition toys before they disappear.
Let’s talk porn!
You can watch it later, but for now let’s get down and dirty with porn.
Sexual Health Week is an awareness campaign that was started back in 2008. It was started by the Family Planning Association (FPA) a non-profit sexual health charity. The charity’s motto is ‘Talking sense about sex’ and we couldn’t agree more.
In previous years the FPA have brought attention to sexually transmitted infections (2016) Contraceptive choices (2014) and this year the topic is porn.
We want to support people to have more open discussions about subjects related to porn, such as body image, consent, communication, safer sex…and the difference between fantasy and reality.
That is 1 week, 7 whole days, a glorious 168 hours to talk about porn!
What Godemiche is doing?
We want to be part of that conversation. We both enjoy watching porn. It adds an extra something to a hot and spicy night of sexy fun or fires things up for that a fabulous quickie. However we also know that some porn can also give people unrealistic expectations of what sex and bodies are really like. Porn, particularly that shot professionally is done so to look like the best of sex and is not always the most honest representation of what sex is actually like. We want to help open up the conversation around pornography so that people can be better informed about this topic.
There are many who have a very negative view of porn, believing that all woman in porn are victims, that watching porn is harmful to a person and their relationships but many of these beliefs are not based on facts, but on myths that surround the porn industry. By talking openly about porn and giving people more information about the porn industry we can hopefully make the conversation around it a more positive well informed one.
Over the next week will have a variety of different posts related to this subject. We have a number of question and answer style interviews with different people in and around the adult entertainment world, don’t forget porn is not just movies it includes cam girls, live stream TV, erotic image and the written word.
We also have many blog posts about sexual health, safe sex, contraception aids and even squirting in porn all with the aim of helping people to talk about porn and to see things maybe in a different light.
Feel free to join in with us. Tell us your porn stories both good and bad and let’s get the conversation going. The hashtag being used for Sexual Health Week is #SHW17 but we will also be using our own special one #LetsTalkPorn.
We would like to sincerely and profusely apologise for our stupid and thoughtless comments published in our Instagram story about pubic hair.
As a company we have always strived to be the best we can, to make a quality product, to give excellent customer service and to promote and be part of an industry in a sex positive way. We believe that everyone and by that we mean EVERYONE has a right to a healthy, happy and positive sex life whatever that might mean for them.
We also apologise for the delayed response in putting out this statement, at the time of realising our mistake we were out at an event where no mobile phones were allowed.
We have let ourselves and the community down, worse we have angered and upset the very people we set out to please and help, for that we are truly sorry. We will strive to learn from our mistake while continuing to make the positive changes we are making in the industry.
We are and will continue to be a customer driven company that is socially immersive, seeking to educate, stimulate and actively participate in movements that benefit all aspect of sexuality and the adult industry.
We again sincerely apologise to all of you.
Adam and Monika
