Welcome to ‘Behind the Scenes’ of Godemiche Workshop where you can see what’s been popular and what different silicone pieces we’ve been working on during the whole month of January.
As you may know we’ve launched our new Pastel Be My Valentine Collection which I must say you’ve liked a lot. We’ve received couple of custom designs which we are very happy to make at NO extra charge. Remember if you wish to get the colours you want just leave us a note on the checkout – it’s simple as that.
Here are just a few creative pieces you requested:
- Adam 6in with Pastel Mix Love Hearts and Purple UV base – customer choice
- Ambit Princess Perfume and Electric Lavender Love Hearts and the same colours mixed base.
- Apprentice – Princess Perfume Be My Valentine
The OffBeat is getting your attention more each month , since December launch we haven’t stop making the masturbators. You’ve been so kind to leave positive feedback and the good vibes around this toy can’t just stop.
- OffBeat Gold Venti – textured
- Packaging – the masturbator sleeve comes in a cardboard tube. It’s also a storage container.
- Venti Standard Yellow OffBeat and Dark Green Grande OffBeat
I think it’s fair to say that Godemiche is well known as a brand with overwhelming amount of colours. There’s no other place that you can find with so many colourful dildos. We can mix literally EVERYTHING. Here are some of YOUR choices we haven’t done before.
- Adam 8in Electric Lavender and Bolt Gun Grey – customers choice
- Apex Large in Peach Puff and Pearl – wasn’t sure about this one but I really like it!
- Adam 8in – Purple UV and Rose Gold
… and the usual colours that still surprise us every time.
- Adam 8in – Red and Black or as we call it Vampiresk Dildo. I take my hat off to Adam as only he knows how to pour this mix so well. I’ve tried and failed miserably .
- Ambit (from left to right) – Blue UV and Pink UV with Pink Uv and Purple UV – both were made for a sex shop Taboorva
- Ambit – Pink UV and Gold packed in our see through pouches which can be used as a storage as well.
Some of the random things we have made like candles. You can see how securely we pack them, also the unforgettable Nebula Galaxy, and the mix which I personally adore in Anal Duo. Have a look:
- Candle Dildo Adam 6in Yellow – we don’t use plastic fillers in our parcels however this is one exception. You can’t trust the postman, so this is the way we secure the candles from being broken.
- Adam 6in Galaxy Nebula – it was made by Sean actually – our new toy maker who happen to be Adams little brother. Pretty great!
- Anal Duo in Navy Blue and White – there’s something hypnotising in this mix ,I swear I can look at it over and over again and again…
Things that surprised me last week:
- It is a WHITE Ambit Dildo!!! I guess white is also a colour , we don’t make them a lot… ok we don’t make them at all but it’s still beautiful
- Apex Small in adorable mix Princess Perfume and Blue Lagoon.
- Plug B Large in Blue Lagoon – anal toys can be cute.
These are just a few images that I wanted to share with you but believe me my phone currently has close to 3000 images which is impossible to share. I’ve even got told of by Adam that I spent way too much time taking pictures, but hey I just can’t help it. The colours the mixes in different angles oh… Yeah, I’m pretty obsessed.
And you? Which one is your favourite? Leave a comment below I’m very curious;)
See you next month with more updates.
Today the 13th January 2018 is ‘Make Your Dreams Come True Day’ and we want to inspire you to do something to help make your dreams come true.
Let’s not lie about the matter your dream probably won’t happen in a blink of an eye, sorry to burst that bubble but let’s be real, your dreams are going to take some if not a lot of effort to achieve but they are most defiantly not beyond your reach.
I don’t know what your dreams are, what your heart, body or mind desires the most, so that makes inspiring you a little tricky but not impossible. So we want to offer our story, a small story on how a young family of 4, with nothing but a desire to help people started a company you now known as Godemiche.
This is my Godemiche story, because Monika’s Godemiche story although closely entwined, is a different story all together and one only she can tell.
Back in 2012 I (Adam) was working as a Civil Enforcement Officer aka a Traffic Warden and Monika as a Barista, both working 36 hours a week. Jobs to pay the bills, that’s all they were, not enjoyable, not our life time ambition and most definitely not our dream.
2012 was also the year that we launched ThatPosition, this was our breath of fresh air, our escape for the daily grind of things we didn’t like, it was a sex toy website and we loved sex.
We spent hours upon hours, creating content, helping people, offering advice, trying to change people’s perceptions of sex toys. Looking back on things we probably put in 40+ hours each, every single week but it only ever felt like a couple of hours at the time because we enjoyed it so much.
If we fast forward things up from 2012 through to 2015, I and Monika continued to work on ThatPosition, we also became parents, we became parents twice, a little boy and a little girl. One full time day job, two children and a website; A website that we started with the purpose of trying to helping people.
The truth is ThatPosition covered its cost, we ran the website to help people, the content was to help people, we rarely went out of our way to sell products.
Infuriated by larger manufacturers we were motivated to made our own dildo, the Adam, yes named after me and made by me. The Adam took weeks of sculpting, cost so much money in wasted silicone, plaster and other materials that really we should never have continued, but we enjoyed it, so we did.
One day at a fetish market Clair at Kinky Monkey asked if she could buy our dildos to sell with the strap on harnesses she made. Clair asking that simple question is the reason Godemiche the brand was born and in October 2015 we unveiled our new brand, website and products to the world at Sexpo.
Godemiche was always and will always be about giving people the best products we can possibly make, giving the best advice we possibly can and making people feel inspired to talk as openly as they feel comfortable with about sex.
The weird thing is Godemiche wasn’t our dream nor was selling or even making sex toys our dream. Sex was what we enjoyed and helping people to discover new things in their sex life was what we really enjoyed the most, it was and still is such a rewarding feeling to know our advice and products help people. True story, last week at LAM a guy bought a Plug-B for our stall and no more than 30 minutes later he came by and said ‘I’ve got it in and it feels GREAT!’, that was one of the first things I told Monika when I got back home.
As with all good things there is a leap, a more than often, giant leap of fucking faith that no matter how much you want to avoid will always be there. Some times that leap is money, sometimes its time, whatever your leap it will be out of your comfort zone. For us our leap was leaving a job with a regular income to try and sell dildos. That leap was made all the more terrifying by having 2 children, then two and one, and no real track record of any financial business success.
6th July 2016, I remember the day well, it was the first time in 10+ years that I had been elated, no ecstatic, no over the FUCKING MOON happy to be going to work! It was day one of our dream job, the first day I left the house to work at Godemiche, to do what I wanted to do and tell the stories I wanted to tell with the aim of inspiring people to just do it!
Monika has always believed in me, believed in my idea of a world where people talk about sex, a world where we help and inspire people despite of what others might say or think. For example, I love my dad, I’ve always wanted him to be proud of me, but he was always a cold sharp stab of reality. I remember him saying ‘if you don’t make money in 3 months you NEED to get a job! You have a family you need to look after and you NEED to be responsible.’ Hard words to hear when your making that scary fucking leap. Today I believe my dad’s proud of me, even telling his friends I’m ‘king cock’ when asked what it is we do for a living.
My advice to you
General advice is to live life with your eyes and mind open. What I mean by this is opportunities are always right there in front of you, smaller opportunities have the potential of leading to bigger ones. And If your dreams are not crystal clear that’s fine, neither were ours, but keeping your eyes open for opportunities and acting on them is a must. If that opportunity turned out to be the worst experience in the world, GREAT your dream has become a little clearer because you now know what you don’t like.
Advice on ‘the leap’. This bitch is hard, you fight everything, your mind, heart, gut, family, friends all seem to spin around you in this mental battle for a place on the ‘whats right’ platform. If in your heart you feel it’s the right thing to do and the hairs on the back of your arms sand up while thinking about it, then it’s probably the right decision to jump. If you don’t jump you risk living with regret, being that person that created the something new or innovative but never did anything about it, will haunt you for life. If you take the leap and it all goes wrong, it’s an education, a lesson learned, a story to tell your children and then when the leap comes around again you will not be scared because you have done it all before and it didn’t kill you the first time around. I think fulfilling dreams mean that sometimes you just have to take a risk. I am aware that not everyone is in a position to do that but if and when you are then in my experience taking that leap is a key part of making your dreams come true.
We have been working very hard this year and this Christmas holiday we have decided to take a little break to spend more time with our family. It gives us an opportunity to just relax and get new ideas for the new year ahead. So with all of that in mind, we would like to announce that we will be taking a break for from the 18th December 2017 until the 2nd January 2018. Don’t forget that you can still place an order between these dates just that our 7 day shipping policy will obviously not apply.
We would also like to remind you that Christmas time is very busy not only for us but also for the Post Office so the usual delivery time might take a little bit longer. The estimated delivery time to the US is 2-3 weeks but please add few days on top of that to receive your parcel. Also, the UK delivery might come slightly later than estimated 3-5 days (2nd Sign). We know that you are all anxious to receive your purchases but sadly delivery is something that we don’t have a control of, once it is out of our hands -if it’s not trackable- then it is down to the postal service but if you have any questions about your parcel you can always send us an email at email@example.com and we will do our absolute best to help you..
Christmas break doesn’t mean we won’t be active on social media. It is part of our life now to communicate with you all and so we will continue to be active on those platforms. If you want to find us on your favourite social media then follow the links below.
See you on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest or Snapchat;)
Have the best Christmas ever and Happy New 2018 Year!
See you very soon.

Erofame is just around the corner and we are very happy and excited to announce that we will be attending the show as traders this year. The show starts on the 11th and ends on the 13th October 2017 in Hannover, Germany. Let me tell you few words about it. Erofame is a trade convention for the erotic market. It is a worldwide the leading B2B event for the erotic industry, attracting over 200 national and international exhibitors in its latest instalment. The international trade convention has a focus on products and services from the erotic market and the lifestyle segment, including adult toys and erotic accessories, but also lingerie and other products that only have little to do with the hardcore industry.
It is very important for Godemiche to take the business to the next level. We want to grow every year and our expectations are very high, we want to succeed and be recognisable worldwide. That’s why we want to take our time to prepare for it.
With all that we want to inform you that there will be delays regarding your orders. All the orders placed on the 1st October will be made after the show ( 17th Oct ) and despatched by the 23rd October.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will try to reply to your emails and messages as soon as we can.
