Stockroom - About Us


If you'd like to know us better, our company Founder, Joel Tucker, did an "Ask Me Anything" thread on Reddit.com a while back. It's still an excellent resource for information about our history and philosophy, straight from the man who started it all.

The Stockroom is kinky.sexy.naughty.

You want to explore your kinky side and not go broke. The Stockroom is here for you. That's what we have been doing since 1988: creating, producing, and sourcing quality toys, tools, and apparel to everyone with an itch to scratch and not a lot of scratch. The Stockroom is the original internet source for quality sex toys, online and selling to tech-savvy fans of kink since 1990. We've now been selling sex toys, bondage gear, and restraints online for over 30 years, catering to curious novices and extreme BDSM players alike.

The Stockroom Story

All Joel Tucker wanted was to tie up his girlfriend. It was 1988 and Tucker, an Occidental college student, headed to the local sex shop, smiling girlfriend at his side. Surely the basics for getting started in bondage couldn't be more than about 50 bucks, right? When Joel was presented with a potential bill of $250, he knew there had to be a better way—being kinky shouldn't mean being broke—so he started his own business to prove it. His girlfriend actually made the suggestion to make their own – she had recently taken a leatherworking class and had a few of the necessary tools needed to begin. For a while the leatherwork was done on Joel's living room floor until the initial growth spurt was well under way and it was time to find real facilities.

That's what The Stockroom has done from the very beginning: creating high quality kink gear that normal budgets can afford.

In the early days, people would ask me, “Where are you selling this product?” And I’d say, “Well, mostly on the Internet.”

And the next question would be, “What’s the Internet?”


From the beginning the mission of the Stockroom, in Joel's words, has always been "to build an inspired, dedicated team to deliver all the best in sexual technologies in a manner that demonstrates our respect for our clients as healthy, intelligent, sexually adventurous adults. Our commitment is to provide discreet and convenient access to high quality products at a reasonable price, and to provide educational, networking and entertainment resources to support the development of the communities we serve". Over nearly three decades that mission has led to the success of The Stockroom and the satisfaction of both customers and staff.
